Senator Lindsey Graham just ended Nancy Pelosi’s reign of impeachment terror with the promise heard round the world.
Lindsey told Fox News that in no way, shape, or form will the GOP controlled Senate vote to convict and remove Trump from office for a phone call with Ukraine’s President Zelensky.
In fact, he will gather other GOP Senators and will send her a letter telling her that her effort is doomed to fail so why divide the nation over something that will never happen.
He makes a strong case – look, Pelosi and the Democrats need 20 GOP Senators to defect (that is if Joe Manchin and other red state Dems vote to convict which is no guarantee) and that is near an impossibility.
Consider that this is an election year and every single politician cares more about their jobs than they do about Trump or even the country and that the GOP Senatorial electoral fates are tied to Trump.
If they abandon him they will actually have to get real jobs and believe me that is what all politicians fear most.
From The Hill:
Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) on Wednesday said that he is sending a letter to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) warning that Senate Republicans won’t impeach President Trump over his call with Ukraine.
Graham, in an appearance on Fox News’s “Fox & Friends,” said that he was going to ask other Senate Republicans to sign a letter to Pelosi saying that they “do not believe the transcript of the phone call between the president and the Ukraine is an impeachable offense.”
“They’re about to destroy the nation for no good reason,” Graham said. “And I want Nancy Pelosi to know that Republican senators are not going to impeach this president based on this transcript, so she can stop now before she destroys the country.”
Graham, who is one of Trump’s most vocal allies on Capitol Hill, blasted House Democrats on Wednesday, saying they couldn’t “care less about fairness.”
“You have to have a vote to make it legitimate,” he added.
Graham, who chairs the Senate Judiciary Committee, announced on Tuesday that he is going to invite Giuliani to testify before his panel. The decision marked a turnaround for Graham, who had previously called for an investigation into “all things Ukraine” but said it needed to come from outside of Congress.
“I think Rudy’s got a story to tell. I want him to tell it in my committee. He’d be respectfully treated,” Graham said during the Fox News interview. “At the end of the day, I am going to shed a light on all things Ukraine.”
