Lindsey Graham Calls On Dems To Stop Impeachment, Says It Will Be ‘Traumatic’ For The Country
Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC), who has been one of Donald Trump’s biggest defenders in Washington, said on Tuesday that Democrats need to stop impeachment before it reaches the Senate because an impeachment trial would be “traumatic” for the American people.
According to CBS journalist Alan He, Graham seems to believe that Americans don’t want to see a fair trial that could possibly lead to the ousting of Trump.
“Who am I to advise my Dem colleagues about what to do,” Graham reportedly said. “Censure would probably gain some bipartisan support… the country going through an impeachment trial would be traumatic and I think we should avoid that if possible.”
Q. Censure better outcome than impeachment?
GRAHAM: "…Who am I to advise my Dem colleagues about what to do. Censure would probably gain some bipartisan support…the country going through an impeachment trial would be traumatic and I think we should avoid that if possible…"
