Graham: Senate should dismiss a Trump impeachment trial


>>Sean: THIS IS A FOX NEWS ALERT. SENATOR LINDSEY GRAHAM TONIGHT INTRODUCING A NEW RESOLUTION CONDEMNING THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES, THEIR CLOSED-DOOR, ILLEGITIMATE, UNCONSTITUTIONAL IMPEACHMENT INQUIRY, HE JOINS US NOW IS MORE PAID SENATOR, I’M GLAD TO SEE THIS HAPPEN. EVERY REPUBLICAN THAT WAS THERE VOTED FOR IT YET YESTERDAY. DEMOCRAT SHUT IT DOWN. NEVER BEFORE HAS THIS HAPPENED IN AN IMPEACHMENT INQUIRY. CLOSED DOORS. THEY WON’T EVEN LET A REPUBLICAN READ A TRANSCRIPT WITHOUT A REMINDER, AND GOD FORBID THEY GET A COPY OF IT.>>YEAH, SO THIS RESOLUTION PUTS THE SENATE ON RECORD CONDEMNING THE HOUSE FOR THE FUTURE OF THE PRESIDENCY. WE CANNOT ALLOW FUTURE PRESIDENTS AND THIS PRESIDENT TO BE IMPEACHED BASED ON AN INQUIRY IN THE HOUSE THAT’S NEVER BEEN VOTED UPON THAT DOES NOT ALLOW THE PRESIDENT AND THE WITNESS AGAINST HIM TO CALL WHEN IT’S ON HIS BEHALF AND CROSS-EXAMINE PEOPLE WHO ARE ACCUSING HIM OF MISDEEDS. ALL I’M ASKING IS GIVE DONALD TRUMP THE SAME RIGHTS AS RICHARD AND RICHARD NIXON AND BILL CLINTON HAD WHEN IT COMES TO IMPEACHMENT. I’M INSISTING THAT DONALD TRUMP BE GIVEN THE SAME RIGHTS THAT ANY AMERICAN HAS AT WHEN YOU’RE GIVING A PARKING TICKET TO CONFRONT THE WITNESSES AGAINST YOU, CAN’T BE BASED ON HEARSAY, AND HERE’S THE POINT OF RESOLUTION. ANY IMPEACHMENT VOTE BASED ON THIS PROCESS, TO ME, IS ILLEGITIMATE, IS UNCONSTITUTIONAL, AND SHOULD BE DISMISSED IN SENATE WITHOUT A TRIAL.>>Sean: OKAY. NOW. SO LET’S WALK THROUGH HOW DO I GET STUNNED AT HOW DO YOU DISMISS IT WITHOUT A TRIAL? ALL OF WHAT YOU ARE SAYING IS TRUE. NEW JOINT GETTING NEWT GINGRICH JOINS US IN A MINUTE. AND HE WILL EXPLAIN EVERY DETAIL. YOU SAID THE CORNER OF AMERICA IS DURO STUDENTS, DUE PROCESS, C IS DURO STUDENTS, DUE PROCESS, A IS DURO STUDENTS, DUE PROCESS, L IS DURO STUDENTS, DUE PROCESS, N IS DURO STUDENTS, DUE PROCESS, E IS DURO STUDENTS, DUE PROCESS, T IS DURO STUDENTS, DUE PROCESS, E ACCUSATIONS AGAINST YOU. NONE OF THAT IS HAPPENING IN THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES AND WHERE ARE YOUR FELLOW SENATORS? I WOULD LIKE TO SEE THEM SIGN YOUR LETTER.>>IT’S GOING TO BE A RESOLUTION BE IT I WOULD HOPE TO HAVE A VOTE ON IT. I HOPE — IT WOULD BE GREAT TO HAVE 100. COULD YOU IMAGINE IF REPUBLICANS WERE DOING THIS TO THE DEMOCRATIC PRESIDENT? DOES OPENING BY BILL TAYLOR TODAY, EVERYBODY IS BREATHLESS. HERE’S THE QUESTION. WHY DOES THE PRESIDENT OF UKRAINE DENY THERE IS A QUID PRO QUO? WHAT DO YOU KNOW THAT HE DOESN’T KNOW? WHY DID THE PRESIDENT OF THE UKRAINE’S EGG DURING THE, I DIDN’T KNOW IT WAS FUNDED AND THE PRESIDENT OF UKRAINE, THE ALLEGED VICTIM, DENIES THERE IS A QUID PRO QUO, HE DIDN’T FEEL THREATENED BY THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES. THAT ONLY HAPPENS IF YOU CAN CONFRONT THE WITNESSES AGAINST YOU. THIS PROCESS IN THE HOUSE IS BEING CONDUCTED BEHIND CLOSED DOORS, REPUBLICANS ARE BEING SHUT OUT, AND IF YOU HAD AN INQUIRY VOTE, THAT ALLOWS REPUBLICANS AND A PRESIDENT TO CALL WITNESSES AND TO CONFRONT PEOPLE ACCUSING THE PRESIDENT OF MISDEEDS. THAT’S WHAT HAPPENED WITH CLINTON, THAT’S WHAT HAPPENED WITH NIXON AND ANDREW JOHNSON. THIS IS UN-AMERICAN AT ITS CORPORATE WITH THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES IS DOING IS A PROCESS, OF POLITICAL REVENGE. IT IS ALIEN TO AMERICAN DUE PROCESS. IT SHOULD BE DISMISSED QUICKLY IN THE UNITED STATES SENATE SO WHAT WOULD HAPPEN IF THEY IMPEACH THE PRESIDENT BASED ON THIS CLOSED-DOOR, BEHIND-THE-SCENES, LACK OF DUE PROCESS, INQUIRY? WE SHOULD DISMISS IT WITHOUT A TRIAL BECAUSE IT’S ILLEGITIMATE ON ITS FACE AND IF IT IS ALLOWED TO STAND, THERE IS NO PROTECTION FOR FUTURE PRESIDENTS.>>Sean: WHEN THE PRESIDENT SAYS, AND WE WENT OVER THIS, WHEN THE PRESIDENT SAYS CAN YOU DO ME A FAVOR? WE HAVE IDENTIFIED HUNDREDS OF TIMES THAT HAPPENS TO BE ONE OF THE PRESIDENT’S TRANSITION PHRASES AND WE HAVE THE TAPE. CAN YOU DO ME A FAVOR. MANY TALKS ABOUT THE 2016 ELECTION INTERFERENCE OF UKRAINE CONFIRMED BY POLITICO, 2017, JANUARY. IT ISN’T ALSO ONE OF HIS CONSTITUTIONAL DUTIES, HIS SWORN OATH, TO FAITHFULLY EXECUTE THE LAWS OF THE LAND AND I JUST HEARD EVERYONE SO UPSET ABOUT ELECTION INTERFERENCE AND TROMP AND RUSSIA, I WOULD THINK THEY WOULD BE ON BOARD WANTING TO HELP TRUMP GET TO THE TRUTH BUT THAT’S NOT THE CASE, IS IT?>>NOT WANTED DEMOCRAT HAS SUGGESTED THE PRESIDENT IS TREATED UNFAIRLY WHEN IT VIOLATES EVERY BASIC PRINCIPLE O VIOLATES EVERY BASIC PRINCIPLE F VIOLATES EVERY BASIC PRINCIPLE D VIOLATES EVERY BASIC PRINCIPLE E PROCESS. WE GAVE ABOUT $400 MILLION HERE TO THE UKRAINE AND IN AID AND HERE’S THE QUESTION. IS THE POLITICO ARTICLE ACCURATE IS? IS SOMEBODY LOOKING AT THE DNC INVOLVEMENT IN 2016 AS THEY LOOKED AT TROND AND RUSSIA? SOMEBODY NEEDS TO DO THAT. SO IT’S NOT ON FOUNDED FOR THE PRESIDENT TO BE CONCERNED ABOUT UKRAINE INTERFERENCE AND IN OUR ELECTION IF HE BELIEVES THE POLITICO ARTICLE BUT HERE’S THE POINT. WE ARE TALKING ABOUT THE IMPEACHMENT OF THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES, DESTROYING A MANDATE FROM THE PEOPLE, A POLITICAL DEATH SENTENCE, AND HE IS NOT ENTITLED TO KNOW WHO IS ACCUSES ARE. HE CAN’T CALL A WITNESS ON HIS BEHALF AND HE CAN’T CROSS-EXAMINE THOSE WHO ARE

  • Meanwhile William Taylor testified yesterday. The evidence is mounting that Trump and Giuliani have broken Campaign finance laws… Working with Russians And had a quid pro quo using US funds and international diplomacy For his personal political gain. Imagine if you cut Obama doing the same thing. It’s illegal.

  • Light-Loafered Lisping Lindsey needs to line up at least 33 fellow Republican members of the US Senate with a very public pronouncement that any "bill of impeachment" arising out of the current House dirty dealings is DOA. Without that backup, it's just more blah..blah…

  • The Republicans make up their own rules and Constitution to benefit themselves or believe it is only illegal if you only get caught .Graham is a piece of trash and needs to go to the landfill among others.

  • Look, Graham and his fellow (clowns) object to process which is a matter legally handled anyway the Dems want. They don't know that? Later, all facts have to come before the public. This is something done by Reps against Dems in the past. So.. these Reps should grow up; but they'd rather try to protect a guy that jephordized Ukrainian lives for his own benifit and leaves Kurds to their extinction after helping the US battle Isis. Trump has NO INSIGHT into the common man's concerns/ HE IS A SPOILED RICH KID with no credibility or conscience. Am I wrong?

  • PRINCESS SNOWWHITE says:

    NAMBY-PAMBY, CASPER-MILKTOAST, SPINELESS, BALL-LESS IDIOT GRAHAM NEEDS TO CRAWL BACK INTO HIS MOUSE HOLE SO WE CAN SEAT REAL MEN IN CONGRESS

  • Lindsey looks like he is on Vice President Trump's team. They have to get rid of this impeachment bull and get on with President Putin's work….GO GET EM COMRADES

  • Hey Graham, interview the SAME witnesses the Dems are interviewing, but in public!! You have subpoena power! It's a no-brainer!

  • Cut me a break. Lindsay has the power to hold hearings to counter the secret House hearings. If he has a reason to NOT hold such hearings, then at least let us know you have a reason to not do it.
    What I don't want to hear about, is a strongly worded censure. I can't imagine anything weaker.

  • Is that a gram need to stop talking about your reds resolution to the Senate, and put forth. You should’ve done this a month ago. What the hell get to it.

  • William Gleaton says:

    Once again the Queen speaks. Lindsey told all of us just 3 years ago how horrible Trump was he called him a liar, a cheat and a conman, so now he want us to follow suit with his new concept,Hes gonna lose his seat next year I would bet on it because momma always said you can fool so of the people some of the time , but you can't fool them all of the time i think I'll believe mom over Lindsey anyday.

  • William Gleaton says:

    anyway.more thing Trey and the Republicans did the same dam thing during the Benghazi hearing remember wouldn't let the dems in on the hearings so how now is it different. Unless your breaking the law.

  • Trumpphobia and hatred and malice by CNN MSNBC failed fully. Trump hater's suffer from Trump derangement syndrome and injustice and hearesay

  • Can’t anyone do something about this? It seems impossible that this could even take place so corrupt and sneaky how are DEMOCRATICS getting away with this?? Please can someone explain it to me

  • C myfriendscallmeColin Powell says:

    Sean all that stuff you idiots are whining about happens in the “Senate” TRIAL part of impeachment process you MoRan! 😂

  • Trump is making fools out of the republican party and his voters. schools will teach that this is what happens when frightened fools run the government.

  • I use to admire Graham thought he was for “We the People” and a Supporter of our President !! All I’ve seen is talk,talk,talk NO ACTION!! SHAM ON YOU SEN GRAHAM !!!!

  • Amen fox✝️ They need to leave President alone. They are so much making it Unsafe For Our Children, they need to take their hate to the vote Booth. Never before has other side show so much hate. Is this legal?

  • Sancho Ditherson says:

    Maybe President Trump is a much better leader/mentor/influence than no name McCain was for Graham. President Trump needs to keep an eye on him but maybe he'll turn out to be a white hat after all. I still get worried when I see him grinning though. Talk isn't going to be enough. Treasonous Pencil Neck must be investigated. I know Graham loves his buddies like the treasonous Herr Mueller and dirty Trash Heap Biden but he he can't dance this time. American's won't put up with these good ole boy tax money thieving deep state pigs any longer. Graham must side with our President or he's finished.

  • George Louis Freeman says:

    I just stopped in to ask……

    Hey..Graham….what have you done for South Carolina lately to make just that one state a grand ole example of all things fine and enviable??

       Beaufort would like to know.

  • From my perspective of watching these ongoing charades for over two years now there is no going back , no settling of differences and no friendly handshakes between the two sides until the US political system is totally cleansed of the FAR left traitors that perpetrated this farce. . . .

  • The House Democrats are following the rules as signed by John Boeher. This entire line of argument is baseless. 47 Republicans are in the room during testimony and are given equal time to question witnesses. This is not an impeachment. Graham knows better. Fox news= Fake news.

  • Here is a direct note from one US citizen to another.

    Dear Senator Graham,
    I am sure that you will understand that even given the responsibility and authority of serving as US Senator, there is a higher office you and I both hold and is held in common with every born and naturalised citizen of our great country. That office is citizen of the United States of America.

    For my part as a citizen who cares deeply for our country, I must insist, dependent on the evidence that is being considered, that you be open to voting for removing Donald Trump from office. He is not above the law and his overriding responsibility is to his oath of office. He has no legitimate obligation to any other oath he may have sworn to his ego or his personal interests and you likewise have taken no oath of allegiance to Donald Trump.

    You, yourself said, "If we nominate Trump, we will get destroyed…….and we will deserve it." You said this on May 3, 2016 and you meant it. Your prophecy has come true. Should you and your fellow Republicans do the correct thing and put your honour and patriotism behind your vote, you might have time to nominate a strong Republican team headed by the likes of someone like John Kasich for the coming election. I could vote for a team of John Kasich and George Will for example. Such a show of renewed Republican character would likely be well-received and rewarded by the electorate and might keep you from having to hear the title, Senate Majority Leader, Nancy Pelosi.

    The choice is yours. You spoke the truth on May 3, 2016. As it stands now, Mitch McConnell needs to make plans to clear out his office. The time has come for all of you to wake up to the words of Abraham Lincoln, "we must disenthrall ourselves, then we will save our country."

    Sincerely, Robert Howard
    Citizen of the United States and the Great State of Colorado
    (which shares no borders with Mexico).

  • Andrew Napolitano mentioned it this morning on Fox and Friends; these are the rules written by the Republicans three years ago!

  • Cris Briones Fourzán says:

    No. No. No.
    So the reps had the right to everything when Bengazi, but Trump is sacred?
    For heavens sakes. He is evil.
    The Democrats respected the Bengazi investigations they made. The Democrats never irrumped their closed-doors sessions.
    Then why the double standard?
    Are they afraid that something else will be found?
    There's no doubt about it!

  • Graham has the talk but never does the walk and shame on the Republicans not standing up for there President leaving him alone to fight through theses communists ists

  • Graham’s presentation today was good, however, he needs to hold hearings in the Senate abt 2016, crimes committed by Obama Administration and FISA abuses, like HE SAID HE WOULD IN JANUARY!! Tired of hearing him.

  • when trump 1st came into ofc the repubs needed him a hell of a lot more than he needed them…oh what a difference a day makes….the tables have drastically turned…..he now needs them…….he has become a huge wildcard/liability…..it's safer 2 dump the clown n back pence…

  • Somebody really should point out to Graham that Trump is broke. He'll never see a dime of the money he's been promised for his continued idiotic defense of the undefendable. He's just throwing what little reputation he had left away for nothing.

  • Lindsay Graham, you sir, are the ultimate hypocrite! There is plenty to not only warrant an inquiry, but a full Impeachment in the House. Sadly, not enough Republicans in the Senate actually have a spine to do what's right by our Constitution and remove this grifter…

  • If what the house is doing is illegal why hasn't Graham and company filed legal work to have it stopped? Why haven't they taken the Dems to court? Furthermore if a trial is held the Dems don't have enough votes to convict. So why are they so upset? Could it be that although Trump gets acquitted what comes out in testimony will doom him? This is weird. The votes aren't there to convict him yet his followers are upset. Why? Solve that one.

  • All Trump need to do is stop the arguments back and forward. Say I’m new with only months of being on job, doing things to better America in my style isn’t working. I can do the job with my staff used as complete unit. Apologize for not doing it by the books but can change course to have more decisions made after his staff agree to foreign and domestic decisions to insure no more accusations of crimes. That’s all.

  • Yes a bit fed up with the GOP saying "it's not fair" and "they want to overturn the results of the 2016 election". They sound like children. They are not trying to overturn the results they are staging a coup!!!!!!. and 'not fair"? it should be illegal they do this in secret. ANd the GOP act as if there is nothing they can do except moan about it. They are protecting the Dems by their inaction.

  • A C T O F WAR .. ..these are communists say it wit me communists …now was that so bad … don't you feel better? 'that they are also criminals is public knowledge ..

  • Lindsay Graham speak truth, but sorry to ask: where He lost his passion, enthusiasm and fire of speech? If president Trump would speak that way: none would listen or love him as president of USA! Dear Lindsay Graham, you are honest and nice person, who probably learn from family or "church" to act as "not existing individual". You need to be more emotional and GET VERY ANGRY ABOUT: UNJUST ACTIONS DONE AGAINST OUR JUST PRESIDENT DONALD J TRUMP!

  • Emiliano De La cruz says:

    Hre is the point, be aware of this swamp member snake with a chameleon head, only cares about his job keeping in congress just flip flop,dishonest person and the ones who believe what hi is talking are stupid or they are they have a dog in their fight ,that "legendary mel gibson us to said" ,bad toxic resonance hz to the humanity.

  • If Trump, the Trumps, the fixers, Rudy did any of this …..Trump and his administration are finished. As for Graham? Trump may fish him off with some video of little Lindsey getting buttfucked by Russians.

  • Sorry Graham but you have failed already because eight of your senators are not with you. Where were you in 2015 when the republican congress changed the house rule? tell Americans the truth you shameless old man

  • “The truth is like a lion; you don't have to defend it. Let it loose; it will defend itself.”
    Go get em! Trump 2020!!!
    We are lead by an amazing leader!!!
    Liberals…. It's time to find another hobby!!

  • DONT YOU FEEL IT YET FOXNEWSMONGERS? YOUR KING TRUMPS DOOM HAS BEGUN…ALL SHAME ON YOU WHEN THIS IS OVER.. YOU ENABLERS AND BABY SITTERS ARE TOTALLY OUT OF INTEGRITY…

  • Please get your news from CBS, ABC, NBC, NPR… not here.  
    This is pure propaganda, slanted, confusing and not helping you or your neighbors.
    A judge has ruled the House is following the constitution.

  • Problem with the facts? Argue against the process.

    At the federal level, the impeachment process is a three-step procedure.

    **First, the Congress investigates. …
    **Second, the House of Representatives must pass, by a simple majority of those present and voting, articles of impeachment, which constitute the formal allegation or allegations. …
    **Third, the Senate tries the accused.

  • wouldnt you want to know says:

    I love how Hannity and Graham forgot to mention that there are 47 Republicans in the impeachment committee already. lol Imagine if this was the only news network you watch and how uninformed you would be.

  • Larry Carmody CMD says:

    The person that shld be impeached is Joe Biden, then indicted for his crimes & arrested by the military MP's w/ no bail. AG Barr is, right now writing criminal indictments to be served. This news just came in. The fake news won't mention it though, only Fox, but when those indicted ppl are arrested how will the fake news spin that.?
    LMAO.!! Ha,ha,ha, I love it.

  • This is absurd. The House is following rules the GOP set in place in 2015. They are merely acting as a grand jury. There will be plenty of time for public hearings once this is done. Closed hearings are necessary so witnesses do not coordinate testimony. The GOP has nothing to defend Trumps behavior so they are attacking the process.

  • That would be against the Constitution and is just BS blather meant to lubricate their base. The argument here has been impeachment procedure and why no House vote to start it. No mystery there because the rules were changed but not by the democrats rather instead by the John Boehner led GOP majority House during the Obama years. You see they figured that they might find something to impeach him for and wanted to smooth the road out for that. Funny how this would come back to bite them in the arce years later. Either way with all those government employees stepping forward to testify and Trump's efforts to obstruct by forbidding people to comply with Congressional subpoenas makes it that much easier and faster to complete the impeachment inquiry portion and soon present their findings to the House to debate and vote on

  • Senator Graham was right on target when he stated in 2016 that Trump is a kook, crazy and unfit for office.
    He has apparently now decided that a crazy kook who is unfit for office is just fine as president. The man is a fool and a huge hypocrite!
    We owe our gratitude and support to the courageous Democrats who are trying to rid America of the evil, self-obsessed, incompetent jackass in the White House. Graham is a traitor to his country: putting political self-interest above any sense of integrity, values or concern for the American people.

  • The more the gop tries to fight this impeachment, the guiltier they will all look to the courts, and the harder they’ll fall in the end.

  • Oh for “PETE SAKE” and what the “HELL” this President succeeded to end “ A Wicked Enemy of the People Baghdad’s!!!!! How many people in this country do not know what this Devil did “ I BET.”

  • Any Politician who is found to have lied about anything regarding Trump IMPEACHMENT acts in Congress should-shall be convicted of PERJURY. Upon, such a declaration, many Refiblicans will certainly be arrested for perjury. I cant wait. Lock em' all up (those who are guilty) for their bullsh*t. The American voter has spoken during the 2018 midterms
