Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC), took to Twitter on Wednesday after infrastructure talks with congressional Democrats was cut short due to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), trying to have it both ways and overplaying her hand.

On Wednesday morning, Pelosi spoke briefly with the press after Democrats held a “special meeting” on potentially impeaching Trump and told reporters, “We believe that no one is above the law, including the President of the United States. We believe the president of the United States is engaged in a cover-up.”

President Trump held a surprise press conference in the Rose Garden Wednesday after he cut short a meeting with Speaker Nancy Pelosi, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY), and other Democrats that were expected to be at the White House for a meeting on infrastructure. He promptly demanded the speaker end House investigations involving him before an infrastructure deal could be struck.

The President said he ended the meeting with the Democrats because he was not happy with Pelosi’s claim that he was involved in a “cover-up” related to the Mueller investigation into alleged Russian collusion.

Sen. Lindsey Graham, however, does not agree with how the President is being treated, but he urged President Trump not to abandon infrastructure talks with Democrats and gave some advice. (Continued Below)

Graham wrote on Twitter Wednesday afternoon, “I disagree with what the House of Representatives is doing. I thought Mueller was the Final Word. I can understand how the president feels – It’s. Never. Enough.”

He urged the President to “rise above it if you can,” arguing Trump could push back against the Democratic House majority while still continuing to work with them on other issues.

He said, “I have a lot of sympathy for President Trump. I’ve never seen anybody treated this way. All I would say is try to rise above it if you can. The country is looking for leadership. We need leadership.” (Continued Below)

The South Carolina Senator continued, “I would encourage the President to focus on what is best for the American people and fight back against efforts to undermine him, his administration, and his family.”

Referring back to Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation hearings, when Graham 2.0 emerged, he tweeted, “The Kavanagh nomination was pretty contentious. I didn’t like what happened. But I’m still showing up and still trying to find common ground.”

As he concluded, Graham suggested,  My advice to the President is to try to find solutions to problems like infrastructure, prescription drugs, and a broken immigration system. See if we can do two things at once — fight with each other and find common ground.

On Monday, Sen. Graham said, “I don’t think it would be good for the office of the presidency to impeach Trump when he fully cooperated with the special counsel.”
