After sitting on the articles of impeachment for weeks, Speaker Nancy Pelosi has decided to finally follow the laws and rules of the Constitution. Despite all the urgency Democrats put behind needing to impeach President Trump as fast as possible, it took Republican pressure for Pelosi to finally budge and send the articles of impeachment to the Senate.
As chair of the Senate Judiciary Committee, Lindsey Graham will have a big role in how the trial will play out. A staunch defender of the President, Senator Graham will ensure a much more fair trial in the Senate compared to the House.
Working with Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, Graham doesn’t intend to let Democrats have impeachment sideshow they want in the Senate. Democrats want all kinds of different witnesses to testify, but there is one major problem: the impeachment allegations are illegitimate.
Not one single Republican voted for obstruction of Congress or obstruction of justice by President Trump. The entire witch hunt was not only rushed, but completely partisan. It was one party, the Democrats, seeking to oust a duly elected President. And Lindsey Graham is preparing the Senate to have the president’s back.
Senator Graham put it plainly in his tweet. “The Senate will decide how we dispose of this sham created by the House.” adding that they will also be “ending this debacle.”
There is no chance the Senate votes to remove President Trump from office. It would require a ⅔ vote, and 53 Republican members are well versed on the motives behind the impeachment witch hunt. By putting his foot down, Senator Lindsey Graham is not going to let Pelosi’s shampeachment trial go on.
Since the start, Lindsey Graham has been working hard for his constituents in South Carolina while also having the back of President Trump.
Senator Graham wants to put this trial away swiftly. Let’s make sure he has the support he needs in the Senate- if you stand with President Trump adding your name to our anti-Impeachment petition below!
