Graham prepared to call Democrats including Biden, Harris to testify in impeachment trial

It seems all but certain that former President Donald Trump will be acquitted upon the conclusion of a second Senate impeachment trial against him — but one prominent Republican is prepared to up the ante if necessary.

Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) declared this week that he would call President Joe Biden, Vice President Kamala Harris, and other high-ranking Democratic officials as witnesses if that party forces his hand.

Graham wants trial to be over by Sunday

As the Washington Examiner reported, Graham’s ultimatum came during an interview with Fox News Channel host Sean Hannity on Monday.

For their part, Democratic lawmakers and many in the mainstream media have argued that Trump bore responsibility for inciting a deadly riot on Capitol Hill last month, which many of them refer to as an “insurrection.”

Trump’s allies, however, accuse the party of hypocrisy, pointing to examples of Democrats using violent political rhetoric.

With 17 Senate Republicans needed to vote along with every Democrat in order to convict Trump, the trial is almost universally expected to end in Trump’s favor. A number of prominent Republicans have also argued that the mere effort to impeach a private citizen is unconstitutional.

Graham said that he hopes “this crap” will be finished by early next week, but suggested that he is prepared to drag the process out.

“All those people you named and then some”

“If the House managers want to call one witness, the defense is going to call all those people you named and then some,” he told Hannity, who had rattled off a list of Democrats he would like to see take the stand.

Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) has also opined that it would only be fair to call on progressive politicos like Senate Democratic Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) to defend their previous incendiary rhetoric.

Democrats began the trial by making their opening arguments and Trump’s lawyers are set to follow suit. The trial could be completed quickly if no witnesses are called.

Nevertheless, GOP leaders are preparing for a lengthy ordeal, signaling an interest to press Democrats like Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) for objectionable comments, including her exhortation to supporters to harass Trump staffers in public.

Graham is making his denunciation of the impeachment trial crystal clear, asserting: “What Democrats have done is basically declare war on the presidency itself.”

  1. I feel that all of the Democrats that have made comments supporting violence and unrest should be called as witnesses Especially Biden and Harris for their comments and actions in supporting violent behavior.

    1. For sure! And it wouldn’t hurt a thing if they were called even when Trump is acquitted. They think they got by with it AGAIN!!

    2. I remember Nancy Pelosi also starting rioters in regards to the George Floyd Death by telling people to DEFUND the POLICE. Then she depends on authorities to help her. She is a hypocrite. Also, why is she getting away with trying to get donations for those supporting this action. She also needs to be charged with Insider Trading by buying stocks that she knew were going to grow within a couple weeks of election day.

    3. I would add Pelosi’s disrespectful tearing up the Feb State of the Union msg, and Hillary’s 30,000 disappearing texts & Benghazi infractions to the list of criminal politicians!

  4. For damn near 4 yrs. all that we’ve heard was “IMPEACH”. With investigations, whistle-blowers, & proof. In the end?? NOTHING. Now you’ve got people in office with investigations, whistle-blowers & PLENTY of proof. What are we hearing about THAT???? NOTHING. SO, What’s the point to this story??? For now, NOTHING!!!! They are impeaching the WRONG person. Well Republicans, You’ve got 2-4 years to start crying “IMPEACH”!!!! How about it???

  5. I’m tired of the Democrats.They are bullies and it ok for them to backup the people who burn building and burning cars and taking things from people business and kill kids and go down where people live and say hateful things and go in people yard with their weapons and hurting people and they get these people out of jail.I think they should be put in jail.

  6. Bring on the swamp creatures let there remarks be shone for all to see and hear the evil in there heart from the pits of HELL there future home

      1. Catholics…. say your rosary for our country and DJT. Mother Mary is our direct link of prayers to her son Jesus Christ. Our countries sins can only be over turned by prayer by ALL denominations.✝️🇺🇸

  7. Better give this teleprompter/note card reading ILLEGITIMATE POTUS PROMPTS AS He’s completely clueless
    Maybe he could wear an earpiece during questioning!!!wonder if his call to China read off a piece of paper 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣

  8. Time to impeach Biden, Harris, Maxine Waters, Pelosi, Schumer all guilty of lying, telling people to riot, threatening supreme court and bailing out criminals. Evidence overwhelming convict them all.

    1. Exactly right!! I’ve been saying the same thing. All the dumocraps should be impeached immediately. GITMO would be a perfect place for all of them.

  9. The DemonRat party has morphed into the anti American party that by its actions have proved themselves to be more concerned about their own agenda of destroying our nation with a president who by his actions is has set out to destroy President Trump America 1st agenda for their America last. Open borders allowing thousands of illegals flooding into America bringing with them lawlessness and disease. Who benefits from the open borders, well I suggest you ask your demonRat representative that questions. While you have their attention ask your demonRat how this helps the citizens who elected him or her to office? Then you might ask them how closing down the pipe line from Canada to the west coast and putting over 90,000 people out of work is helping the taxpayers. This is just a few of a lot more questions that need answers and there aare more but that is a good start.

  10. they alway have been anti american what are you talking about they never voted anything for african amricans except to keep them living in their giant plantation cities???????/

  11. Graham is finally getting backbone. Make all of the testify regardless of what dems do. These rotten treasonous sob’s went after DJT from day 1 cuz their criminal candidate Hilliary lost. Make Wray testify also. He knew of threats days before Jan 6 and surely advised Piglosi of them. These present day dems are NO GOOD.

  12. I don’t know why or how there are ANY Democrats still in office. For 4yrs and still going on they have only showed their hate for Trump and not done anything for their constituents.

  13. THANK YOU GRAHAM. GET BIDEN AND HARRIS TO TESTEFY. BOTH OF THEM ARE JUST PUPPETS. WHAT THEY ARE DOING IS NOTHING SHORT OF WHAT HITLER DID . GUESS THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY WANTS TOTAL CONTROL. HEIL DEMOCRATS.
    BUT THERE ARE PATRIOTS AND AMERICAN HEROS THAT WILL NOT STAND BY TO LET THE DO NOTHING DEMOCRATS RUIN THIS COUNTRY.

  14. The Democrat’s for 4 years have been saying that Trump was destroying our Constitution, well in less than a month the VERY same people have destroyed AMERICA.

  15. President Trump has been the greatest president e have ever had. Lindsey Graham ,please make it so the Democrats have to testify. Let America’s people see what is really going on. Then go after every media company here. It’s time for the citizens voices be heard. And don’t worry about what this would do just do it. The people need to know the whole story and let the pieces fall where they may. It won’t be worse than what the Democrats have already done. They are stealing this country from all of us and it needs to stop and they need to be punished like the constitution stated, Treason

  16. Im proud of Senator Graham for standing his ground. There are a handful of Senators we must keep representing us. McConnell has crossed over to Pelosis team.

  17. We all knew that little j was NOT going to keep the oath that he took, so why was he even allowed to run???? If the dam’s were not sure that voted for him—isn’t there proof NOW that he and little h are placed in the highest of the USA office to turn this country into a comm. country?!! What do the GOOD people feel they can do now???? As President Donald Trump said: “FIGHT TO KEEP OUR COUNTRY” That means to NOT KILL or maim but to go vote them out of office and start to do what ever is legally necessary to get them removed before we can not go back to keeping a nation of LAW AND ORDER COUNTRY REP’s get some guts and fight yo keep us “FREE”. Start to impeach them who have been hurting us!! The real problem children!!!!!

  18. I’m proud of Linsey Graham for representing the American citizens and our constitution. Let’s see the rest of congress follow suit.

    1. Congress had already spoken Mary Perry , it in the hands of the Senate now and hopefully they all stand their ground as they said they would . And it would be nice to see the turncoat join their fellow Republicans in standing against this freak show the Democrats insist on holding .

  19. I simply cannot believe all of the garbage talk and soap opera drama by the Democrats. Donald Trump and 74 million people who voted for him wanted him to continue being President for another four years. Trump has more at stake and has more sense than than to have been guilty of the mealy mouth accusations made against him. I saw nor heard any evidence that this exists. It all boils down to this……….The “under the table Minions” of the Democratic Party AKA “The Swamp” are terrified of Trump for exposing their corruption. The only thing he is guilty of is exposing the crime, hate, and control in Washington that needs to be eliminated.

  20. What about Piglosi threatening to drag President Trump out of the White House” by his hair and his tiny hands”? Inflammatory rhetoric! She needs to answer up! Yhen be impeached for sedition and threatening the president!

  21. Will this ever be over? Not as long as the Dems don’t get their way. They are sore loosers and cheats and liars.

  22. It will be over SOON!!
    THINK CLONES, DOUBLES AND COMPARE!! YOU DIG LONG AND HARD ENOUGH YOULL FIND WHAT ITS REALLY ALL ABOUT AND WHY THE MASK ARE PUSHED ON YOU WITH MEDICAL PROFFESIONALS TELLING YOU HOW DANGEROUS THEY ATE ABD NIW LABRAT FAUCHI & CDC TRYING TO FORCE YOU INTO TWO NOW… CANT SEE WHO ANYONE IS OR ISNT WITH MASK ON…SEARCH PEOPLE.
    HOW ADRENACHROME IS DISTRACTED, PIZZA INGREDIENTS USED BY CABAL AND MEANING BEHIND. JUST SEARCH!!!
    TOM HANKS IS RELATED TO ROCKERFELLERS, MARK ZUCKERBURG IS HANKS COUSIN..ANDERSON ON CNN IS A VANDERBILT..GLORIA IS MOTHER..SEARCH HER AND HER POOL ROOM…ITS NOT POLITICAL…ITS GOOD VS EVIL AND THESE PEOPLE ARE EVIL AT THE HIGHEST REGARD

  23. What lies will Biden, if he can remember and most of all the pathalogical liar Harris will tell now? Biden as a puppet has an excuse!
    Unfortunately it his age, Harris on the other hand is a disciple of nasty lying Clinton without a shread of remorse!!!! CLINTONis behinds the scenes as well! Pedophilic and makrs Satan look good! Hillary, im sure you remember how you treated the Secret Service who were REQUIRED to puy their lives on the line for you and how dud you treat them? Like GARBAGE! Ask anyone of them who came in contact with you! You’re not special! Just nasty, evil and downright disgusting! Please go away!!!

  24. STOP giving up people they may seem like Goliath, but with the evidence on tape of all they have said a good lawyer like Sen. Cruz or Trump’s lawyer’s would have them fired in no time!
