‘We can start with Speaker Pelosi’: Sen. Graham threatened to call Pelosi as first witness in impeachment trial

Former President Donald Trump’s Senate impeachment trial drew to a close on Saturday when Democrats failed to get the number of votes required for a conviction, making him the first U.S. president to secure two acquittals.

As Senate Democrats wrestled with the decision to prolong the spectacle by calling witnesses, one Republican revealed that he supported calling witnesses — in order to compel House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) to testify. The Democrats ultimately caved and decided to pass on calling witnesses.

As reported by the Washington Examiner, Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) joined with four other GOP senators in voting to have witnesses appear.

His reason for doing so was to force an appearance by Pelosi, a point that he made clear via Twitter on Saturday afternoon, declaring that “if the body wants witnesses, I am going to insist we have multiple witnesses.”

Driven by optics?

“We can start with Speaker Pelosi to answer the question as to whether or not there was credible evidence of pre-planned violence before President Trump spoke?” he tweeted.

“Whether Speaker Pelosi, due to optics, refused requests by the Capitol Hill Police for additional resources like the National Guard?” Graham continued.

The long-time senator went on to add that an appearance by the House speaker would be “incredibly relevant to the incitement charge.”

Pre-planned riot?

During a Friday interview with Fox News host Sean Hannity, Graham pointed to evidence that the January 6 Capitol Hill riot was planned well before President Trump made his speech, saying, “If there was pre-planning, there was no incitement.”

He stressed that “the FBI and the Capitol Hill police actually now understand this was preplanned,” and cited the fact that rioters “were planting bombs the night before.”

In light of those revelations, Graham expressed curiosity over just how much information Pelosi had received before the attack took place.

“If this was widely known by the FBI and Capitol Hill police, that people were planning to come to Washington before the 6th to create violence, I want to know, did she know about that?” he asked.

Graham also said that he intended to call witnesses from the FBI and Capitol Police to provide further insight regarding Pelosi’s knowledge.

  2. We all believe Nancy Pelosi is definitely guilty for pre-planned capitol riot.
    Also we should say that she is responsible cheated the Presidental Election of 2020.

    1. You are correct.
      Why would Trump cause a Riot when he was contesting the
      stolen election. Doesn’t make sense to me.
      Democratic’s didn’t want the American people know that
      they cheated to get Biden to win. They have been working
      on this for 4 years. Thanks to the help from China.
      They have been trying to take Trump out. He will not give up
      nor should the American people.

  3. Waterboard the bimbo Piglosi cuz I’m sure she knew of the pre planned violence by anti Trumper’s. She probably helped orchestrate it knowing that she and the slime msm will blame it on Trump and all of the dem sheep followers being sooo stupid will believe it. All the deaths on Jan 6 are the result of her failings and hatred for Trump. She and scumbag Cuomo deserve prison for the people that were lost.

  4. Pelosi needs to be impeached and criminally charged for her part in the capital attack Jan 6, 2021. She planned it long ago.

  5. She should be called up to testify about this pre planned attack. Also why she didn’t secure the capitol building! She has a LOT to answer for, and she should not be allowed to skate by on this! We want to know!!! Was she complicit? What did she know beforehand? Come on Linsey, bring her before the judicial committee and put her under oath!

    1. Remember when Pelosi said I have more quivers in my bag when she wanted to impeach President Trump and get him out office again and again!

      1. The republicans are going to get majorities in both houses in congress and remove both the president and vice president as learned thru the Dumocrats. maybe Pelosi will retire by then. The olld hag is to old to serve. Califonia is to stupid to recall her.

  6. Piglosi has been orchestrating “to get Trump out” for over 4 years, including these two “impeachment trials” which were as phoney as she is. What a waste of tax payer money!!!

  7. Plastic Pelosi & Schumer were both asked by capital police for national guard -BOTH SAID NO!!!!!
    Fess up guys they wanted this rally to get out of hand!!!

  8. It certainly would have been good to see Ms. Pelosi turning int eh wind. Of additional “goodness” had there been a long, long string of witnesses is that Congress would not have been able to do anything else and when the congress is locked down the country suffers much less.

  9. I Kinda wish Senator Graham would have called these witness got pelosi on the stand along with the FBI and Capital including AOC OHMAR RONMEY MC CONNEL CHANEY and a slew of others just to see how many would have ultimately committed perjury on the witness stand. Just would have been very interesting. Then these individuals would have hopefully been charged with crimes themselves.

  10. I read something about hired protestors. maybe this could b traced back to the Dumocrats. Look at the Russian thing after trump got elected. It got traced to the Dumocrats. I can almost see them pulling off Jan. 6.

  11. If calling witnesses was the thing to do according to Graham then why didn’t he keep quiet about it.
    His objective was to shorten the stupid Trial while Trump’s Lawyers did the rest.
    There isn’t ONE Liberal that does not need cleansing for America’s honest future to survive, but to cure NPD is very hard to do. Pray.

  12. Wouldn’t surprise me if Pelosi solicited some of the thugs from BLM and/or Antifa to provoke and lead the attack. Nor would it surprise me if she colluded with the Chinese to release the coronavirus on us. She is about as evil as a human, and I use that word loosely in describing her, can get.

  13. Pelosi left the chamber early while Paul Gosar was still challenging the electoral vote. He requested order and someone else had taken Pelosi’s place. It looks like she got a good five minute head start getting to safety before recess was called and the rest of the senate left the chamber.
