Senator Lindsey Graham stopped-by The Sean Hannity show this week to weigh-in on the Democrats’ latest push to legitimize their ongoing impeachment process; saying the current situation is “completely different than what happened to Clinton and Nixon.”
“At the end of the day, everything still is in the hands of the compromised leader of this witch hunt, which is Adam Schiff,” said Hannity.
“Yeah, you’re dead right,” fired-back Graham. “There’s never been an Intel Committee involved in impeachment for a reason. So, under this resolution, the Intel Committee is to lead the investigative committee.”
“It’s completely different than what happened to Clinton and Nixon. The goal of this thing is to try and legitimize an unfair process. This is a sham… Democrats who vote for this, you’re voting for a process that would destroy every President in the future,” he added.
Democratic members of the House of Representatives approved new legislation Thursday that formalizes their impeachment inquiry against President Trump; passing the resolution along party lines.
The final vote was 232-196. Two Democrats voted against the investigation.
“The Greatest Witch Hunt In American History!” posted Trump shortly after the vote.

“With today’s vote, Speaker Pelosi and the Democrats have done nothing more than enshrine unacceptable violations of due process into House rules,” said White House Press Secretary Stephanie Grisham.

GRAHAM ON HANNITY: CNN Just Hired Alleged Architect of Anti-Trump Criminal Conspiracy
Sen. Lindsey Graham stopped by ‘Hannity’ Wednesday night to weigh-in on CNN’s recent decision to hire former Deputy Director of the FBI Andrew McCabe; saying the network just employed the “alleged architect of a criminal conspiracy” against the Trump campaign.
“Wasn’t he fired for lying and leaking?” asked Hannity.
“Compare the coverage CNN gave the Mueller report to the Horowitz report… Here’s what happened: CNN has just hired the alleged architect of a criminal conspiracy against the Trump campaign. How much time and attention do you think they’re going to give the Horowitz report when they hired the guy Horowitz was investigating?” said Graham.
“Former FBI deputy director Andrew McCabe, who became one of President Donald Trump’s top enemies within his own administration, is joining CNN as a contributor, a network spokesperson said. His first day is Friday,” reports CNBC.
“The CNN gig comes as McCabe is fighting that termination in court. Earlier this month, McCabe filed a lawsuit in U.S. District Court alleging that his removal was part of a scheme by the president to remove government employees ‘because they were not politically loyal to him,’” adds the website. “McCabe’s hiring was reported earlier by CNN’s senior media reporter Oliver Darcy.”
McCabe filed a lawsuit earlier this month against the FBI and the Department of Justice; suing the agency for his pension and retirement funds while blaming President Trump for his termination.
“The former acting director and a 23-year veteran of the Federal Bureau of Investigation filed a lawsuit against the Department of Justice and the FBI Thursday, demanding taxpayers foot the bill for his full pension and healthcare benefits he missed out on when he was fired last year,” reports Fox Business.
“Andrew McCabe – whom an inspector general found had improperly leaked information to a reporter and lied about it to his boss, then-FBI Director James Comey – is blaming President Trump for his firing, according to the lawsuit,” adds Fox.
McCabe’s lawsuit comes just hours after former FBI agent Peter Strzok filed a similar claim against the Department of Justice.
GRAHAM ON HANNITY: Christopher Steele Not a ‘Reliable Informant’ for the FBI, Paid by DNC
Sen. Lindsey Graham stopped-by ‘Hannity’ Tuesday night to comment on recent revelations surrounding ‘Trump Dossier’ author Christopher Steele; saying the former British spy was “not a reliable informant” for the FBI.
“This new report and the closed-door testimony where we know Bruce Ohr under oath said it’s an unverified dossier and Steele hates Trump,” said Hannity.
“You’re supposed to say under oath to the court that the document is accurate, that’s the whole point of getting a warrant, you have to have reliable information… Christopher Steele went to the Department of State to get the Department to release the document for political reasons,” fired-back Graham.
“We know that without the dossier the warrant would not have been issued. He was not a reliable informant for the FBI… He was paid by the Democrats to take Trump down,” he added.
