posted by Hannity Staff - 2.03.20

Senate Judiciary Chair Lindsey Graham told Fox News this week that the Intel Committee will call the Ukraine “whistleblower” at the center of President Trump’s ongoing impeachment trial.

“The Senate Intel Committee under Richard Burr has told us that they will call the whistleblower,” Graham told Fox News. “I want to understand how all this crap started.”

Senator Lindsey Graham threw more cold-water on the Democrats’ ongoing effort to call witnesses during the President’s impeachment trial; saying House lawmakers cannot simply “dump it in our lap.”

“We’re not blocking anybody’s witnesses. We’re just not going to legitimize the House choosing not to call a witness, dump it in our lap,” Graham told reporters at the US Capitol.

 

Graham unloaded on the House Impeachment Managers’ proposals this week; saying the Democrats are essentially trying to “destroy the institution of the presidency as we know it.”

“Some observations: It was a long day. I’ve been involved in two impeachment trials, I just want to say what the House Managers were proposing yesterday was basically to destroy the institution of the presidency as we know it,” said Sen. Graham.

“When it comes to Donald Trump, they are willing to destroy the institution of the office in the name of getting him. The Clinton impeachment was conducted by outside counsel, there’s none here,” he added.

GRAHAM ON FIRE: ‘The Salem Witch Trials Had More Due Process’ Than Ukraine Accusations

Sen. Lindsey Graham slammed the Democrats’ latest push to impeach President Trump over the weekend; saying the Salem Witch Trials had more “due process” than the recent Ukraine controversy.

“The whistleblower said, ‘I have no direct knowledge. White House officials told me this. They told me about a phone call.’ There’s a disconnect. Who are these people and what are they up to? The Salem Witch Trials had more due process than this,” said Graham.

Graham’s comments echo similar statements he made last week, demanding the identity of those who leaked internal White House conversations to the whistleblower.

“It is imperative we find out which White House official talked to the whistleblower and why. Why didn’t they lodge the complaint?” asked Graham on social media.

“As to the other matters in complaint: Clearly a coordinated effort to take second-hand information to create a narrative damaging to the President. When I think of whistleblower complaints I generally think of someone with first-hand knowledge of the events in question,” he added.

“As to the House of Representatives: If you believe this complaint has put the public in grave danger, don’t you have an obligation to vote to launch an impeachment inquiry? Americans deserve to see where you stand and evaluate your judgement,” posted Graham.

GRAHAM ON HANNITY: I Will Insist Senate Calls-On So-Called ‘Whistleblower’ to Testify

posted by Hannity Staff - 11.20.19

Senator Lindsey Graham stopped-by ‘Hannity’ Tuesday night to weigh-in on the Democrats’ latest impeachment fantasy; saying he will insist the “Whistleblower” testifies should any trial begin in the US Senate.

“Who decides that? The Senate or would it be the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court?” asked Hannity.

“It would be the Senate… That has to be done by Senate resolution. What I will insist upon is that the federal rules of evidence apply to this case, so President Trump’s defense team could object to hearsay,” said Graham.

“If you want to call the Whistleblower in the Senate, I believe you have the right to do that, because he’s basically the one that started all this,” he added.
