Skip to comments.Graham calls on McConnell to 'unequivocally' denounce second Trump impeachment effort
Posted on 01/19/2021 9:44:14 PM PST by conservative98
Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., is fighting efforts to convict President Trump in the Senate after he was impeached for a second time by the House of Representatives, and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., should do the same, Graham told Fox News’ "Hannity" Tuesday.
"What we need right now is Sen. McConnell to unequivocally say the second impeachment of Donald Trump after he leaves office is not only unconstitutional, it is bad for the country," said Graham, the chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee. "Stand up and fight back."
Graham praised McConnell for helping President Trump with "everything that he did" and referred to the majority leader as a legislative "street fighter."
The senator extended his call to all Republican members, emphasizing the alleged unconstitutionality of pursuing a conviction after Trump has left office.
"Our country needs to heal," he said. "A second impeachment of Donald Trump after he leaves office won’t heal the country, it will further divide the country.
"As to the Republican Party, if we throw in the towel, or are perceived to having thrown in the towel, and not fighting against this impeachment, the Republican Party, as Rand Paul said, will ‘crack up.’"

💥 Boom 🤯
I guess it’s Graham’s turn to play “good cop”.
What's all this Constitution stuff I keep hearing about? When did that become a thing?
So, Mr. Trump, go ahead and pardon Julian Assange.
I would bet this has at least something to do with President Trump’s discussions regarding forming the Patriot Party. This has to have career Republicans Pols extremely concerned.
Looks like graham got the message. However its a little late. You had your opportunity.
Don’t forget, they made him sign a paper that he would not create a third party.
I am sure that Trump had in mind how honest the GOP was when, and if, he signed anything which is highly unlikely. The GOP has been utterly deceitful and any promises made to them have been completely sundered by GOP faithlessness and treachery.
Even if such a paper miraculously exists it is legally unenforceable because nobody can sign away their right of free association and President dump can always claim that the new party drafted him.
Donald J. Trump will still be my President, no matter what you backstabbing losers in the House and Senate do, or attempt to do to him. You, and the Democrats have divided this nation far more than President Trump ever could, or would have. The Republican Party is a corrupt party, no better than the criminal Democrat party. You all have blood on your hands. I’ll be sitting on the sidelines watching karma meet each and every one of you scoundrels. And I’ll be laughing my ass off all the while.
Mitch and Miss Lindsey take turns being on top.
Linda fights to be ‘Kabuki King’ LOL!
Just bizarre. Linda would cost so many R Senate seats if she was Leader.
Spell checker?? Anybody seen the spell checker???
Thanks for sharing your brilliant analysis.
My apologies. It is late and I can barely see the tiny iPhone screen with my tired, blurry eyes.
I believe he signed something saying he wouldn’t run as a third party candidate in 2016 if he lost the republican presidential primary. I don’t think Trump will run again, anyway. He can definitely champion a third party and support it.
Franklin Graham has been of the few honest, forthright, fearless, and uncompromising Christian leaders out there. Never waffling or making mealy mouthed weasel noises like most. LEADS BY EXAMPLE. SEMPER FIDELIS!
Hey, you don't need to apologize. I got a big laugh out of it. And I don't know how anyone can use a cell phone screen to do stuff on. When I'm on the road and access FR from my iPhone, I've tried to respond to comments, but it's terrible trying to hit the right letters, so any reply or comment has to wait until I get home to my laptop. I don't know how people can watch movies or play games on them either. But I'm old, so what do I know.
Welcome to Free Republic.
Linda, as we all know “Mister” Graham, is a weak tool of the establishment. Always for sale, always looking for his own benefit.
In other words: a good politician.
