Senator Lindsey Graham threw more cold-water on the Democrats’ non-stop impeachment fantasy over the weekend; saying he will do everything in his power to give their latest scheme to unseat President Trump a “quick death” in the Senate.
“I am trying to give a pretty clear signal I have made up my mind. I’m not trying to pretend to be a fair juror here,” Graham told CNN. “This thing will come to the Senate, and it will die quickly, and I will do everything I can to make it die quickly.”
“Personally I think President Trump will come out of this stronger and the good news is that everybody in politics in America needs to prove to the American public we’re not all completely crazy. So there may be a spirit of compromise coming post-impeachment, born of political necessity, if anything else,” Graham said.
Graham stopped-by ‘Hannity’ Wednesday night following a day of high-stakes hearings on Capitol Hill; saying “some people need to go to jail” for defrauding the FISA courts and spying on American citizens.
“James Comey has done more damage to the FBI than anybody since J. Edgar Hoover… Some people need to be fired, some people need to go to jail for what they did because the FBI and the DOJ took the law into their own hands, they defrauded the FISA courts,” said Graham.
“The Day of Reckoning is coming, but it’s not here yet,” he added.

FLASHBACK: Joe Biden Called Clinton Impeachment a ‘Partisan Lynching’ in 1998
Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden apologized this week after footage surfaced of the former Vice President calling Bill Clinton’s impeachment a “partisan lynching” back in 1998.
“This wasn’t the right word to use and I’m sorry about that. Trump on the other hand chose his words deliberately today in his use of the word lynching and continues to stoke racial divides in this country daily,” posted Biden on social media.

Democrats pounced on President Trump Tuesday after he referred to liberal lawmakers’ efforts to remove him from office a “lynching.”
Sen. Lindsey Graham exploded on the Democrats’ “sham” impeachment investigation Tuesday; telling reporters on Capitol Hill the whole process is completely “Un-American.”
“This is a sham. This is a joke. I’m going to let the whole world know that if we were doing this to a Democratic president, you would be all over me right now… This is a lynching in every sense. This is un-American.”
President Trump spoke with Sean Hannity at the White House Monday afternoon; calling-out House Democrats’ for the veil of secrecy surrounding their latest impeachment inquiry and the Ukraine.
“We have tremendous support, we’ve got taxes, we’ve got regulations, the stock market. That’s in a fairly short period of time. We’re doing great, we’re beating everybody… We’ve done things that nobody else has done,” said the President.
“To me, ‘impeach’ is a very ugly word… To impeach over a letter like that. They don’t mention any of this anymore. What they’re doing now is something that’s never been done before. They don’t want the facts to come out. Republicans have no lawyers, we can’t question, we can’t do a thing,” 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.

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.
