Republicans have been speaking out against what they believe to be a rushed and botched second impeachment of Donald Trump—and Lindsey Graham has a plan if it gets out of hand.
Clearly, GOP senators are outraged at how the left appears to be ignoring the Constitution, just to “destroy” the Trump presidency.
Numerous senators voted against the trial, but Democrats got their way through a majority vote.
It’s very unlikely they have enough votes to convict Trump. But many think they will turn this into a circus, even bringing up witnesses.
But if they do that, Lindsey Graham has a powerful response. From Daily Wire:
South Carolina Republican Senator Lindsey Graham told Fox News on Monday night that if Democrats call witnesses during President Donald Trump’s impeachment trial that Republicans will call on Democrats to testify as witnesses who have used inflammatory language themselves…
“Here’s what I can tell you, if the House managers want to call one witness, the defense is going to call all the people you named and then some,” Graham said.
Lindsey Graham previously warned Democrats that if they call witnesses to drag out this trial, he’d hit back hard.
He originally said he would bring up FBI reports that call into question Democrats’ response to the events of January 6.
Now, he is warning that the defense will bring up Democrats, forcing them to answer to their own “inflammatory” language.
The names brought up include Chuck Schumer, Joe Biden, Kamala Harris, Nancy Pelosi, and Maxine Waters. Republicans have accused all of these Democrats of saying things that could have incited violence.
Graham said the defense would bring them up and “then some.”
Democrats’ entire case against Trump is that his speech “incited” the events at the Capitol. Many legal experts have said they won’t be able to prove it.
Trump’s team says they are attacking his free speech. And it seems Graham agrees, pointing to what Democrats have previously said (which, by comparison, makes Trump’s speech look like child’s play).
But we know Democrats are determined to drag this out, hoping to convince enough Republicans to vote against Trump. They even wanted Trump to testify, something he has strongly denied.
Graham just might get his wish.
Do you want Graham to call Democrats to take the stand?
- Graham warned that if Democrats call witnesses for the trial, he’d respond.
- He said the defense would call up Democrats and question them over their own statements.
- The names could include Schumer, Pelosi, Waters, Kamala, and even Biden.
