The House will likely make history on Friday morning, but it is yet to be seen if they will be going doing in infamy or not.
During an early morning vote at week’s end, Democrats and Republicans will convene in the House to vote on two articles of impeachment against Donald Trump: One for abuse of power and another for obstruction of Congress itself.
The Republicans seem not afraid, however, as the Republican-controlled Senate has already indicated that it plans to acquit the President as quickly as possible.
How certain are they that they will have the votes for such a move? Senator Lindsey Graham explained it thusly:
Appearing on “America’s Newsroom” with hosts Bill Hemmer and Sandra Smith, Graham said he’d like to end the impeachment process “as soon as possible.”
“I don’t want to give it any legitimacy because it’s a crock,” he said, noting that “every impeachment except this one has been conducted by outside counsel.”
Graham then taunted the Democrats with a wild claim:
“My goal is to end this as soon as possible for the good of the country because I think it’s a danger to the presidency to legitimize this,” Graham stated.
“Does that mean no witnesses at all?” Hemmer asked.
“I don’t need any witnesses at all. I am ready to go,” Graham replied, adding that the issue of Hunter Biden’s work in Ukraine can be addressed outside of impeachment hearings.
Graham has been one of the leading supporters of President Trump throughout the impeachment process, but has been on the sidelines of the House-held process so far.
One can only imagine the fireworks that he has prepared for the coming weeks.
