Lindsey Graham Promises to do This if Dems Call Witnesses

Senator Lindsey Graham is promising to make Democrats pay if they decide to call witnesses during the impeachment trial. Senator Graham says that Republicans have every intention of calling Democrats who have used inflammatory language as witnesses to testify if Democrats call their own witnesses during the trial. Some Democrats who could be forced to explain their own incendiary remarks include House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, Congresswoman Maxine Waters, and Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer.

During an interview with Fox News’ Sean Hannity, the South Carolina Senator said Democrat’s pursuance of this sham impeachment trial is basically their declaration of war on the U.S. presidency.

Watch Lindsey Graham discuss the Democrat’s blatant hypocrisy and how Republicans plan to respond HERE.

According to The Daily Wire:

GRAHAM: I have to. Yeah, I gotta listen to this crap. So I hope by Sunday or Monday, the trial will be over. Here’s what I can tell you. If the House managers want to call one witness, the defense is going to call all the people you named then and then some. To my colleagues tomorrow. There are 100 of us, what we do today is going to make history for the rest of the time [that] America exists. What Democrats have done is basically declared war on the presidency itself. The impeachment in the House took place without a hearing, without one witness being called, and without a lawyer for the president United States. You can’t get a traffic ticket based on the procedures that used to impeach President Trump. And 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 the destruction of the presidency by never ending impeachments

HANNITY: The presiding judges, Newt new pointed out, is a guy that already declared that he’s guilty. I mean, okay, I can think of a lot of countries this reminds me of, not one of them resembles the United States of America. That’s number one. Now we’ve learned oh, if you didn’t have a snap impeachment, now, we know a lot of this was pre-planned, plotted, schemed. Well, okay, that that they didn’t know in the week that they did their quick snap impeachment. And I do think if this is the standard, we must apply it to everybody else. Is that going to be part of the defense? I hope so.

GRAHAM: Yeah, I think you will see statements by politicians that are more insightful than what President Trump said. But when the founders created impeachment for the president, it was different than for judges and anybody else. It requires the Chief Justice of the United States to preside over presidential impeachments. Why? Because you don’t want a juror presiding over the impeachment of presidential officeholder. So the idea that the President is treated differently under the Constitution makes perfect sense. They never envisioned going after President once he’s out of office, because the purpose of impeachment is to remove the person, not bar them from running in the future. So the whole point of impeachment is lost when the person is long no longer in office, 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, you could be impeached in the future based on hatred. 50 hours, no witness, no hearing no lawyer, you could be impeached after you leave office. George Washington under this theory could be impeached for owning slaves. We’re doing a lot of damage to the country because people hate Trump. Knock it off.

HANNITY: Can we impeach senators? Can we impeach the sitting Vice President? The sitting president over insurrection charges based on their own words?

All these people talk tough yet do nothing, never push for anything. All I heard after the election was we won’t let that happen again. None of this should have happened the first time, all of you should have backed Trump knowing he was right, they cheated! For god sake, grow a set, stand for fricken something.

Exactly what I have said for years now! What about the impeachment of Biden that was presented? Any Republicans backing that? Don’t worry about dividing the Country. The Dems don’t care! They do what they want with NO pushback!

In case any GOP members wonder how they lost both Houses in Congress in the past four years, all they have to do is look in a mirror. A blind person could see it in a minute. The Republicans brought it on themselves. Right from the start, Trump has been up against a do nothing Congress of Democrats and Liberal Republicans. A conservative majority in Congress the first two years was a joke. With all the liberal RINOs in Washington, the liberals never lost control of Congress.

Securing the border was not just Trump’s promise. It was just one of three major promises of the 2016 campaign. There was also the promise to repeal Obamacare and cut funding of Planned Parenthood. It wasn’t just Trump who chanted those promises. Most of the Republican politicians running for election and reelection also got on that band wagon.

Before the 2016 election, I believe they kept promising to cut funding for Planned Parenthood, repeal Obamacare and secure the border only to make brownie points with the voters to get elected or keep their seats. According to Senator Cornyn, there was no intention of doing any of those things. Too many politicians on both sides of the aisle put too much faith in the polls in 2016. The polls were almost guaranteeing a Hillary 50 state landslide win. Trump winning the White House caught all of them flat footed because they expected a Hillary win. President Trump brought out their true liberal colors.

If the politicians in the GOP were sincere, they could have started working on a replacement to Obamacare after the 2016 election. Then they could have had a replacement that makes sense by the time Trump took office. As soon as Trump took office, they could have immediately cut funds for Planned Parenthood and started Border Security. They didn’t do any of those things. As a result, the GOP handed a 2020 clean sweep to the Democrats on a silver platter. Schumer and Pelosi are now acting smug believing that the Democrat Party is now invincible.

Republicans have always been too busy fighting among themselves and RINOs usually fall into step with the Liberals. As much as I hate to say it, Senator Schumer was right on when he said that the Republican Party isn’t organized like the Democrats. How right he was. The Democrats all pledged their support to Biden. When a Democrat wins the nomination, the rest of the party put their differences aside and they all give support to the nominee. That support continues if the nominee wins the White House. That hasn’t happened in the Republican Party since Reagan.

I remember when George H. W. Bush said “Read my lips” in 1988. We all know what happened in 1992 as a result of that broken promise. This time the Liberal Republicans weren’t even smart enough to put it all on Trump like The Democrats did to Bush in 1992. The Republicans lost control of Congress and they have no one to blame but themselves.

The republicans may not be organized but Biden didn’t win this election. Democrats were organized in their cheating and that’s it.

The Repubs better get ready for the next elections because the Dems will do the same things that they got away with during 2020 election with fraudulent ballots and more.

Senator Graham has seen the FBI report that clearly shows that the capital breach was preplanned long before President Trump’s speech. They found the evidence on Facebook and Parler involving 40-50 people. He will call the FBI in if it comes to that.

Congress has weaponized their (unconstitutional) powers. They should be investigating the Biden’s monies/collusion with China, the recent information declassified by President Trump and Hillary’s emails re: Benghazi cover up.
