Finally, someone with guts is standing up to every corrupt “Trump-Hating” Democrats by introducing a resolution denouncing the House impeachment investigation on President Trump and has so far gotten 41 Republican co-sponsores for his resolution.
Business Insider reports:
Sen. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina introduced a resolution denouncing the impeachment inquiry into President Donald Trump. In a Thursday afternoon press briefing, Graham announced he had 41 Republican co-sponsors for his resolution.
He further called the current impeachment inquiry “very dangerous to the country,” and recalled how during the impeachment process for former President Bill Clinton- in which Graham played a central role – the House held a vote to formally open an inquiry and established its scope.
Three House committees, the House Permanent Select Panel on Intelligence, the Committee on Foreign Affairs, and the Committee on Oversight & Government Reform are jointly calling witnesses and subpoenaing documents as part of the ongoing impeachment inquiry.
Congressional Republicans, including Graham, have so far lambasted the impeachment inquiry on process grounds, claiming it denies Trump “due process,” and is mostly being conducted behind-closed-doors.
They also claim that Republicans are being shut out of the process, despite the fact that 48 House Republicans – almost a quarter of the entire House GOP caucus – sit on those three committees that have been questioning witnesses and reviewing documents as part of the inquiry.
Early on Tuesday morning, Trump tweeted, “someday, if a Democrat becomes President and the Republicans win the House, even by a tiny margin, they can impeach the President, without due process or fairness or any legal rights. All Republicans must remember what they are witnessing here – a lynching.”
Make no mistake. This impeachment inquiry is nothing more than a sham, a desperate political ploy attempting to bring down Trump.
After previous plots to paint the president as a criminal failed, a perfectly normal phone call between Trump and President Zelensky of Ukraine was the next best accusation.
The only thing the Democrats have accomplished is having made it more difficult for future presidents to conduct diplomacy with foreign leaders, for the threat of inappropriate leaks and wrongful public and political scrutiny will almost certainly follow.
