Senator Lindsey Graham stopped-by ‘Hannity’ Wednesday night to weigh-in on the Democrats’ ongoing impeachment exercise; saying he predicts a “bipartisan acquittal” of President Trump in the US Senate.
“Senator, you’ve had a good pulse on what’s going to happen. Walk us through the process,” said Hannity.
“The House will make its case, then the defense team will make their case based on the record, then there will be an effort to call witnesses and ask for documents, and I hope nobody will be called as a witness,” responded Graham.
“I hope this can be done in a week. I predict a bipartisan acquittal of President Trump,” he added.

ANOTHER CONSPIRACY: Ted Lieu Thinks Someone ‘GOT TO’ Robert Mueller During His Testimony
Democratic Rep. Ted Lieu launched another conspiracy surrounding the Russia investigation this week; suggesting someone “got to” Robert Mueller during his Congressional testimony on Capitol Hill.
“I don’t know who got to him, I don’t know who talked to him, but that was very odd,” said Lieu on CNN.
“What are you suggesting? Because he said he misspoke,” said CNN’s Wolf Blitzer. “Are you saying he did that because of pressure from someone?”
“I don’t know,” said the lawmaker. “I don’t really understand what happened.”

The New York Post Editorial Board blasted Rep. Jerrold Nadler’s Mueller hearing Wednesday; calling the entire spectacle a “waste of everyone’s time.”
“By all accounts, House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler hoped that dragging in former special counsel Bob Mueller for a hearing would jump-start his drive to get going on impeachment. Oops: It was a total waste of time,” writes the Editorial Board. “Mueller made it clear long in advance that he didn’t want to testify, and wouldn’t talk about anything except what was in his report. He even got the Justice Department to issue a guidance instructing him to keep to his preferred limits.”
“What did we learn? Nothing. What’s the impact? Nothing. If Nadler was hoping to get Democrats and their voters energized about impeachment, he’ll surely be disappointed. And we’re no closer to knowing how much this long investigation relied on opposition research by Hillary Clinton and dirty tricks by intelligence operatives appalled by Donald Trump,” adds the Post.
Sen. Lindsey Graham weighed-in Wednesday afternoon on Robert Mueller’s “confusing and sad” testimony before Congress; calling his behavior “dangerous and ridiculous.”
“Wow. Robert Mueller changing the job of a prosecutor from proving someone ‘Guilty beyond a reasonable doubt’ to ‘Not being able to exonerate someone accused of a crime.’ Dangerous and ridiculous. Thus far Mueller completely contradicts what he told AG Barr about the reason not to proceed on the obstruction of justice. He told AG Barr that the decision not to proceed was not solely based on the OLC opinion but on complicated facts in the law. Mueller hearing becoming very confusing and sad,” posted Graham on social media.
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.
"The Salem witch trials had more due process than this" – @LindseyGrahamSC
In the eyes of Democrats and the media, @realDonaldTrump has been guilty since Nov. 9, 2016. His crime? Winning the election
They've been trying to undo that ever since. Total witch hunt! pic.twitter.com/Qp9VW2oD4d

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.
