The Democrats are claiming the impeachment trial of Donald Trump is about healing and justice, but Senator Lindsey Graham isn’t buying it.
“What Democrats have done is basically declared war on the presidency itself,” lamented Graham doing a recent interview. “The impeachment in House took place without a hearing, without one witness being called, and without a lawyer for the president of the United States.”
Graham pointed out that the Democrat have a paltry amount of evidence and a less than sufficient motivation:
We’re also impeaching a man who’s out of office. When you combine a snap impeachment with an impeachment of a president who’s out of office, you’re going to destroy the presidency itself. I know you hate Trump but please, pull back before we set in motion this destruction of the presidency by never-ending impeachments based on lack of due process and political retribution as the motive.
Graham is concerned the Democrats are setting a dangerous precedent that could damage all future presidents.
“The whole point of impeachment is lost when the person is no longer in office,” said Graham. “They didn’t go after Nixon when he resigned for a reason. So to my colleagues here, you’re about to set in motion a historical precedent that will put at risk every future president.”
