Lindsey Graham predicts Trump impeachment will “die quickly” in Senate
Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham, chairman of the Judiciary Committee and a close ally of President Trump, said he will do everything in
his power to quickly end an expected impeachment trial in the Republican-led Senate.
Republican said today during an interview with CNN International’s Becky Anderson at the Doha Forum in Qatar.
Asked if it was appropriate for him to be voicing his opinion before impeachment reaches the Senate, Graham replied, “Well, I must think
so because I’m doing it.” “I am trying to give a pretty clear signal I have made up my mind. I’m not trying to pretend to be a fair juror here,”
Graham said, adding,
“What I see coming, happening today is just a partisan nonsense.”
Where impeachment stands now: The House Judiciary Committee on Friday approved two articles of impeachment against the
President, paving the way for a final vote on the House floor expected next week. That will set up the Senate trial, for which lawmakers are
now gearing up.
