(RightWing.org) – Senate Judiciary Committee Chair Lindsey Graham (R-SC) indicated Sunday that President Trump’s impeachment trial is now almost certain to go ahead, but wants it to be over and done with as quickly as possible. Accepting that there probably isn’t enough support from GOP senators to dismiss the case as soon as the trial begins Tuesday, a confident Graham still doesn’t see there being enough votes to impeach. With the trial almost a foregone conclusion he thinks it’s best to get an answer quickly.
Democrats are trying to drag out the trial by calling numerous witnesses, but only the ones they want to hear from. Graham says that will have consequences:
“If we call one witness, we’re going to call all the witnesses.”
That’s a thinly veiled reference to Hunter Biden, the ex-VP’s son whose business dealings in Ukraine sparked the whole impeachment saga. Graham again made it clear that he’d rather have no witnesses at all — “The sooner this is over the better.”
