GRAHAM: ‘I’m Going to Look at the Bidens… Are You Going to Impeach Me?’

posted by Hannity Staff - 1.24.20

Senator Lindsey Graham defended President Trump’s efforts to crackdown on corruption in the Ukraine Friday; asking lawmakers “I’m going to look at the Bidens, are you going to impeach me?”

“I’ve seen the difference between the Trump administration and the last administration… What they don’t get is that Donald Trump doesn’t like the fact that the United States is taking 10% of the Ukrainian budget and giving it to the US taxpayer,” said Graham.

“They have foreign policy difference with this President… I’m going to look at [the Bidens]. Are you going to impeach me?” he asked.

Centrist GOP Senator Susan Collins sent a private letter to Chief Justice John Roberts during the Senate impeachment trial this week; saying she was “stunned” by Rep. Jerrold Nadler’s accusations of a Republican “cover-up” to protect the President.

“Sen. Susan Collins was ‘stunned’ by Rep. Jerry Nadler’s late-night diatribe this week against what he deemed a ‘cover-up’ by Senate Republicans for President Donald Trump — so much so that she wrote a note to Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts. But the Maine Republican said it will not affect her votes during the Senate’s impeachment trial,” reports Politico.

“It reminded me that if we were in a normal debate in the Senate, that the rule would be invoked to strike the words of the senator for impugning another senator. So I did write a note raising the issue of whether there’d been a violation of the rules,” Collins said. “I gave that note to Laura Dove and shortly thereafter the chief justice did admonish both sides. And I was glad that he did.”

“I’m going to cast my vote regardless of the congressman’s performance,” Collins said. “His negative comments about the Senate will not have any impact.”

GRAHAM ON FIRE: ‘This Whole Thing is a Joke, I Don’t Trust Schiff or Nadler to Find the Truth’ on Ukraine

posted by Hannity Staff - 12.06.19

Sen. Lindsey Graham continued to throw more cold-water on the Democrats’ never-ending impeachment fantasy this week; calling the entire exercise a “joke” and saying he can’t trust Adam Schiff or Jerrold Nadler to “find the truth” on Ukraine.

“I think it’s a bad day for the country. I think this whole thing is a joke. Mueller, I trusted. I don’t trust Schiff. I don’t trust Nadler to find the truth,” said Graham at the US Capitol.

“So, what happened? We had four law professors give their opinions for one day at the Judiciary Committee and Pelosi’s directing Articles of Impeachment to be drafted. That tells you all you need to know,” he added.

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.
