GRAHAM: GOP Won’t ‘Legitimize the House Choosing NOT to Call a Witness, Then Dump it in Our Lap’

posted by Hannity Staff - 1.30.20

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.

'CAN'T MAKE THIS UP': Chuck Schumer’s Guest Booted from Impeachment Trial Over GPS Ankle Bracelet, Felony Charges

posted by Hannity Staff - 1.29.20

Chuck Schumer’s personal guest to attend the Senate’s ongoing Impeachment trial was removed Wednesday stemming from issues related to his electronic ankle bracelet and multiple felony charges.

“Scenes from the impeachment trial: Schumer invited Lev Parnas to be his personal guest today at the trial. Minutes ago, Parnas was ejected from the gallery…because he’s wearing an ankle bracelet mandated bc he’s a criminal defendant accused of serious felonies!” posted Sen. Ted Cruz on Twitter.

“The best way to sum up this whole debacle is to understand that Senator Schumer’s desire for Lev Parnas to attend the Senate trial apparently cannot be accommodated because Mr. Parnas has an electronic ankle bracelet imposed upon him by the court. You can’t make this up,” added Sen. Lindsey Graham.

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

posted by Hannity Staff - 9.30.19

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.
