Former GOP adviser warns that Graham and other Republicans should distance from Trump
One former Republican advisor is urging Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) and other Republicans to distance themselves from former President Donald Trump now that he has officially been indicted by the Manhattan District Attorney's office.
During an appearance on "The Katie Phang Show," Tara Setmayer offered a blistering assessment of Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) and Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) with more critical remarks targeting Graham.
At one point during the discussion, Phang asked Setmayer to weigh in on Republicans' reactions to Trump's indictment.

"Can we expect, Tara, to see more Republicans being more outspoken as we get closer to the arraignment on Tuesday?" host Phang asked.
Setmayer did not mince words with her stinging rebuke of the lawmakers who have spoken out to support Trump.
"Well it doesn't get much more outrageous than Marjorie Taylor Greene," Setmayer began. "But you know what? Keep platforming her, keep demonstrating to the American people what we've been predicting: that she actually runs the Republican party, She represents what the MAGA's have done."
"They now dominate the Republican party, there are no more normal Republicans," she elaborated. "And apparently, the idea of the rule of law, upholding the Constitution, the separation of powers; again Republicans have demonstrated that they don't give a damn about any of that as they continue to prostitute themselves for Donald Trump."

She then turned her attention to Graham saying, "I mean Lindsey Graham! I mean get off the sauce, Lindsey! Enough that he's such a parasite, it's embarrassing and he is also revealing what Republicans are willing to do in order to keep favor with Trump."
