Lindsey Graham just dared Senate Democrats to call witnesses in President Trump’s Senate trial.
He says if they do, they’re in for a nasty surprise.
The Washington Examiner reports:
Sen. Lindsey Graham warned that Republicans would call Democrats as witnesses in former President Donald Trump’s impeachment trial if the majority party decides to call witnesses first.
Graham, who has continued to defend Trump and has argued against the second impeachment trial, said if Democrats called witnesses to testify to the events that led up to and occurred on Jan. 6, Republicans would call Democrats whom they say have made similar comments to the former president.
“If the House managers want to call one witness, the defense is going to call all those people you named and then some,” the South Carolina Republican said Monday on Hannity in response to a question about bringing in witnesses, including President Biden, Vice President Kamala Harris, Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, Rep. Maxine Waters, Sen. Cory Booker, and former Attorney General Eric Holder.
Graham added, “To my colleagues tomorrow, there are a hundred of us — what we do today is going to make history for the rest of the time America exists. What Democrats have done is basically declare war on the presidency itself.”
Democrats are trying to impeach Trump for saying things that every major Democrat has said multiple times. They’re in for a world of hurt if the tables are turned.
