Lindsey Graham has came under heavy fire in recent weeks. While the Democrats subpoena witness after witness Graham has sat back on his hand and not gotten anything accomplished. He even criticized President Trump and compared him to Obama after he pulled out of Syria. Now he is stepping down as head of The Judiciary Committee.

According to

Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., will hand the chairmanship of the Judiciary Committee back to Sen. Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, if Republicans keep control of the Senate in 2020, multiple news outlets are reporting.

Graham took over as chairman this year for Grassley, who chaired the Senate Finance Committee, Politico noted. Graham said Grassley has asked to chair the Judiciary panel again.

And, as far as Graham is concerned, that’s fine with him.

“Love Chuck Grassley,” Graham said. “That’s the way the Senate works. He took the Finance Committee so I could be chairman, and he’ll come back and fill out his time, and I’ll come back, and somebody else will come along.”
Senate Republicans allow their members to chair a committee for six years in total, Politico noted.
Grassley’s spokesman confirmed the senator’s plans, The Hill noted.
