Is the Republican party in peril?
South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham, one of President Donald Trump’s biggest supporter, says he is open to impeachment.
But before the Democrats get too excited, the Republican senator had a high bar set for what it would take to get his vote.
“Are you open minded if more to comes out that you could support impeachment?” Jonathan Swan of Axios On HBO said to the senator.
“Sure, I mean show me something that is a crime,” he said in the interview, showing that he would want to see an actual crime.
“If you could show me that, you know, Trump actually was engaging in a quid pro quo outside the phone call, that would be very disturbing,” he said.
He also said that he thought that President Trump asking China to investigate the Bidens was not a wise idea.
“As to asking China to look into Biden — that was stupid. Nobody believes that China would be fair to Biden, Trump, me or you, or anybody. Bad idea,” he said.
“That didn’t last very long. I think that’s a frustrated Trump who feels like there’s two different games, that people in your business are never gonna really sit down and talk to Hunter Biden unless it’s a softball interview.”
But when Sen. Graham appeared on the Fox News show “Justice With Judge Jeanine” he defended the president against impeachment.
PIRRO: Let’s talk about impeachment, you’re on the chair of the Judiciary Committee, how do you think it is going —
GRAHAM: Impeachment is a bunch of bull. It is bs.
PIRRO: You are certainly fired up today. I know the — what are you able to do when he gets to the Senate?
GRAHAM: If it gets to the Senate. It is going to die, it’ll be dead on arrival. You have to hold a trial but is based on the transcript of the phone call between Trump and the president of Ukraine.
It was a good phone call and to those who are listening Ukraine was involved in our election in 2016, there’s people in the Ukraine that put a hit job on Manafort the president campaign manager.
They wrote an article about Ukraine interference in 2016 election but only because it involves Democrats.
So Durham, the U.S. Attorney in Connecticut is looking at this so it is okay for the president to want to find out what role the Ukraine played in interfering in our election.
It was okay for Mueller to look at the Trump campaign and also okay for the Democrats and the Ukraine.
