He is a staunch ally of the president and a strong supporter of our laws. So you can imagine how upset he is to see the Democrats making a mockery of the Constitution and our government.
Pelosi is demanding that the Senate hold a “fair” trial (one where they do whatever she tells them to do). But at the same time, she refuses to obey the law and send over the articles of impeachment.
Graham has had enough. The Senate must carry out their duty and end this impeachment sham. He’s giving Pelosi a deadline.
If she does not meet it, the Senate will do it their way.
From Fox News:
Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., insisted Sunday that if House Speaker Nancy Pelosi does not deliver articles of impeachment against President Trump to the Senate by the end of the week, the Senate should “take matters in our own hands.”
“What I would do, if she continues to refuse to send the articles as required by the Constitution, I would work with Senator McConnell to change the rules of the Senate so we could start the trial without her, if necessary,” Graham proposed
Boom. Graham slammed Pelosi for her ongoing games. He set a deadline for the end of this week for her to send over the articles.
If not, he and McConnell will change the rules so the Senate can start the trial, without Pelosi’s action.
Pelosi claimed impeaching Trump was a matter of “urgency.” She said our very government and Constitution were at stake.
She continues to accuse Trump of all kinds of abuses. So, why hasn’t she sent over these articles to get this over with?
Every day she delays is another day a “criminal” is in the White House, according to her estimate. Why wait at all?
It’s because she knows this impeachment was a sham from day one. Trump is being impeached over non-crimes.
Pelosi knows the right thing for the Senate to do is dismiss this immediately. Better yet, they can hold a trial and let Trump clear his name before the entire country.
But holding onto the articles means she can hold this over Trump’s head forever.
It seems the last thing Pelosi seems to care about is truth or justice.
Well, Graham is making sure she can no longer mess with our country. If she continues to act like a spoiled child, the Senate will move on their own.
It’s about time.
