Democrats continue forging ahead with their second impeachment trial against Trump. Many wonder why.
It’s hard to argue that they’ll get a conviction. At least 45 Republicans voted against having a trial in the first place. Democrats certainly won’t get enough of them to vote to convict.
Maybe they are just doing this as a petty way to slander Trump and Republicans.
Now, Lindsey Graham is posing a threat to the left to keep things from getting out of hand.
Lindsey Graham has threatened to call in the FBI to testify about security failures during the Capitol riots last month if Democrats try to call even one witness at Donald Trump’s impeachment trial…
“To my Democrat colleagues, if you vote to call one witness, [when] none were called in the House, get ready for a long trial,” said the Republican senator.
Sen. Graham told Democrats that if they try to drag out this impeachment trial with witnesses, he will call up the FBI.
And Democrats don’t want that. Graham said he will demand the FBI reveal how many people “pre-planned” the attack—which would blow a major hole in their “incitement” case.
He also said he would look at the “security footprint at the Capitol” in the days before January 6.
Plenty of reports have come out, calling into question the actions of Capitol Police as well as Democrats leaders on the day of the event. Some have even accused Nancy Pelosi of failing to act to defend the Capitol.
Graham is suggesting that the FBI acquired information about pre-planned actions against the Capitol—which would have been provided to lawmakers in order to plan security measures.
Democrats want to blame Trump for everything, but they are conveniently ignoring what appeared to be warnings that this very thing would happen.
Graham is dropping the gauntlet on Democrats. If they want to drag out this (pointless) trial, he will make them feel every inch of pain over it.
Americans will learn about how Democrats failed to act and possibly contributed to the violence.
It will raise questions about their ongoing narrative against Trump, and the motivations of those trying to tarnish his name.
Not that it would take too much to tarnish the name of these Democrats. Millions of Americans are already disgusted by their behavior. I’m sure they’d applaud Graham’s efforts to expose them.
