After enormous pressure, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi finally decided to send over the articles of the impeachment to the Senate. Despite all the urgency Democrats put behind impeaching President Trump, it took Republican pressure for Pelosi to finally budge.
With such a huge influence in the Senate as chair of the Judiciary Committee, Lindsey Graham will have a big role in how the trial will play out. As a staunch defender of the President, Senator Graham will ensure there is a much more fair trial in the Senate.
Working with Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, Graham doesn’t intend to let Democrats have the sideshow they want. Democrats want all kinds of different witnesses to testify, but there is one major problem: the impeachment is illegitimate.
Not one single Republican voted for any of the impeachment charges against President Trump. The entire witch hunt was not only rushed, but completely partisan. It was one party seeking to oust the duly elected President. And Lindsey Graham is preparing the Senate to have Trump’s back.
Senator Graham put it plainly in his tweet. “Democrats are treating impeachment as an open bar tab. Time to cut them off, take their car keys away (put GOP in control of the House), and end this insanity.”
There is zero chance the Senate votes to remove President Trump from office. It would require a ⅔ vote, and 53 Republican members are very aware of the motives behind the impeachment witch hunt. By putting his foot down, Senator Lindsey Graham is not going to let Pelosi’s shampeachment go on for much longer.
Since the start, Lindsey Graham has had the back of South Carolinians and of the President. Senator Graham wants to put this trial away fast and quick.
