[Scene: Senatorette Lindsey Graham, in silhouette, shakes fist and screams to the heavens…]
Anyway, Lindsey Graham introduced a resolution yesterday that condemns House Democrats’ impeachment investigation:
Senate Republicans introduced a resolution on Thursday condemning the impeachment inquiry against President Trump and calling on the House to hold a formal vote on the inquiry.
Graham, during a press conference with reporters, lashed out the House impeachment inquiry calling it a “secret proceeding” and a “rogue action” that “denies due process.”
“The process in the House today I think is a danger to the future of the presidency,” Graham told reporters.
He argued that under the current procedure Trump was “pretty much shut out,” adding “God help future presidents.”
Of course, Graham is actually a lawyer and knows that the impeachment hearings are not trials, being more akin to a Grand Jury investigation, but, you know that a certain orange ass needs a certain amount of kissing.
So how is it playing with the rest of the Senate Republicans? Not so well!
The GOP senators not cosponsoring the resolution as of Thursday afternoon, according to a list from Graham’s office, are: Sens. Mitt Romney (R-Utah), Susan Collins (R-Maine), Lisa Murkowski (R-Alaska), Cory Gardner (R-Colo.), Lamar Alexander (R-Tenn.), Mike Enzi (R-Wyo.), Johnny Isakson (R-Ga.), Dan Sullivan(R-Alaska) and Rob Portman (R-Ohio).
Other Senators are trying to duck into their shells, so to speak. And while #MoscowMitch says he supports Senatorette Graham’s resolution, he’s not scheduled a vote yet. “Too many courts remained unstacked,” he didn’t say.
