Lindsey Graham: Compelling Witnesses To Testify Would Put Trump’s Presidency ‘At Risk’

Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) on Sunday said that no senators would vote to compel testimony in President Donald Trump’s impeachment trial from current and former White House officials because the president has invoked executive privilege.

“The president is invoking executive privilege around Mick Mulvaney, John Bolton and others,” Graham told Fox’s Maria Bartiromo on “Fox News Futures.” “They’ve impeached him because he wanted to go to court.”

Asked by Bartiromo whether he believed any senators would vote to compel testimony from those witnesses, Graham responded “No, I don’t.”

“If you call these witnesses who work for the president after he’s invoked executive privilege… if you deny him his day in court, then you’re abusing the constitutional rights of Donald Trump as president and you’re putting the entire presidency at risk,” Graham said.

“I can’t imagine any senator doing this to the presidency. I hope senators will not vote to compel witnesses before the court determines whether or not there’s executive privilege,” he added.
