Senator Lindsey Graham is still so bitter that Donald Trump beat him in the presidential election that he repeatedly tries to take him down. Unfortunately for Graham, however, the only thing he’s accomplishing is making himself look like a traitor.

While participating in the confirmation hearing for future Supreme Court Justice Neil Gorsuch, Graham tried to hit Trump with a vile threat. It didn’t take long for this to come back to bite him.

“Now, about what’s going on in the country with President Trump, whether you like him or you don’t, he is the president, but you have said several times that he is not above the law as president. Is that correct?” Graham asked of Gorsuch, according to Conservative 101.

“Yes, senator,” Gorsuch replied.

“You told Senator Leahy if there is a law passed that a Muslim could not serve in the military you believe based on current law that would be an illegal act,” Graham continued.

“Yes, senator I see that having all sorts of constitutional problems under current law,” the judge responded.

That’s when things got nasty…

“So if we have laws on the book that prevent waterboarding, do you agree with me that the Detainee Treatment Act prevents waterboarding?” Graham asked.

“Yes, senator, that’s my recollection of it,” Gorsuch said.

Then came the threat…

“In case President Trump is watching, which he may very well be, one you did a good job picking Judge Gorsuch,” the senator said. “Number two, here is the bad part, if you start waterboarding people you may get impeached. Is that a fair summary?”

Gorsuch, however, wasn’t having any of it.

“Senator, the impeachment power belongs to this body,” he fired back.

Undeterred, Graham tried to force Gorsuch to agree to impeach Trump.

“OK that’s even better. Would it be subject to prosecution?” he asked.

“Senator I’m not going to speculate,” Gorsuch wisely answered.
