Lindsey Graham is warning the Democrats calling witnesses in the phony impeachment hearing. But, that doesn’t mean much.
Graham has given Democrats plenty of warnings in the past just to fold like a cheap road map.
Graham also defended Liz Cheney whose popularity out in Wyoming is as popular as its tornadoes are. She had better get the most out of this term because she has zero chance at being reelected.
Graham says that if the Democrats call witnesses, he will call in the FBI.
The reason that is pertinent is that the Democrats are claiming Trump’s speech on January 6th led to the assault at the Capitol. But, the FBI knows the events were planned weeks before Trump’s speech and that the riot started before Trump finished speaking.
The timeline the Democrats would need to establish would crack under that testimony.
“You open up Pandora’s box if you call one witness. I hope we don’t call any and we vote and get this trial over next week when it starts.”
The impeachment trial that starts next week is illegitimate for several reasons. One is that you can’t remove someone from office that is no longer in office and secondly because it violates the constitution that says the chief justice of the Supreme Court must act as the judge. Instead far left loon Patrick Leahy is presiding. You can’t have a member of the prosecution as the judge where he can affect the outcome of the case.
Democrats are expected to face an uphill climb toward a conviction, especially after 45 of the GOP’s 50 senators voted in a procedural motion to object to impeachment proceedings last week, leading Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) to call the prospect “dead on arrival.” Democrats would need at least 17 GOP senators to declare Trump guilty in order to garner the two-thirds vote required to convict.
Nevertheless, Trump, for his part, is currently assembling a legal defense and preparing a formal response to the charges. A conviction in the Senate will mean rather little, politically, since Trump has already exited office. However, a vote to impeach could open the potential for a vote to bar him from seeking public office in the future.
