Graham: Impeachment trial will result in swift ‘acquittal’

The Senate trial of the second impeachment of Donald Trump is set to begin Tuesday morning, and Senate Republicans are entering the fray confident that the former president will be acquitted in the sham proceedings.

Top Senate Republican Lindsey Graham (R-SC) said on Sunday that the outcome of the trial is “really not in doubt” as it is unlikely that Democrats will convince enough Republicans to cross the aisle to convict Trump on the charges.

Graham himself hasn’t been a great defender of Trump in the aftermath of the January 6th riots, referring to the resulting uproar as a “self-inflicted wound,” but has denounced the impeachment as a partisan sham.

“It’s not a crime. I mean, the House is impeaching him under the theory that his speech created a riot,” Graham told CBS’s Margaret Brennan on Sunday. “When you look at the facts, many people had already planned the- to attack the Capitol before he ever spoke.”

Brennan mouthed the Democrat-perpetuated assertion that Trump’s rhetoric about election fraud and interference led some of his supporters to go rogue and assault the capitol, but Graham smacked it down.

“Yeah, well, here’s what I would say, that if you believe you committed a crime, he can be prosecuted like any other citizen,” Graham replied. “Impeachment is a political process. We’ve never impeached a president once they’re out of office,” adding that it’s a “very bad idea.”

“Forty-five plus Republicans are going to vote early on that it’s unconstitutional,” he explained, in reference to Sen. Rand Paul’s (R-KY) resolution. “It’s not a question of how the trial ends. It’s a question of when it ends. Republicans are going to view this as an unconstitutional exercise. And the only question is, will they call witnesses? How long does the trial take? But the outcome is really not in doubt.”

Graham pointed out that if there is a case against Trump, it’s not one that can be pursued through impeachment, since Trump is no longer a sitting president.

“He’s not in office. Impeachment for a president requires the chief justice to preside over the trial. He’s not at the trial because President Trump is not the president. So this is not process,” he said.

“The Constitution, I think, is being flagrantly violated because, when it comes to Trump, there seems to be no end to all of this. So, the trial is going to result in an acquittal.”

    1. I want to know when we start charging and convicting the dems that have so flagrantly broken the law. It is definitely time they are held accountable.

      1. That will happen in the streets and in their homes when the American Lives Matter movement adopts their tactics. Otherwise the Communifascists win.

        1. Ohhh
          I like the way you think. Hmmmmm American lives matter. American citizens lives matter. I like it. Be careful or Democrats will try to impeach you. Cancel you, go after you trying to deprogram you destroy your livelihood, attack you your family and children. Hell they might send BLM antifa to burn or destroy your home/ business.

      2. I AGREE! PELOSI,( UGLY OLDHAG) AOC,(DINGBAT) MAXINE(BIGGEST LOUD MOUTH EVER,)CHUCKIE BOY, HIS NOSE IS BIGGER THAN HIS FACE) AND THE REST OF THE TROLLS IN OFFICE!

    2. Now that they are having a impeachment trial they just need to change the name from Trump to BIDEN as he did an impeachable crime when he told the foreign President to fire the AG or he would not get the Billion dollars. That is a bribe and he was in office then and now he is back in office so the charges can still be brought against him. The Constitution says anyone that that has committed a crime cannot become President. Theres you answer!!

    3. I was a Democrat for years because when my Dad was alive I became one because I didn’t know what to do! Now I am independent from both parties. But the Democratic Party has stepped con to many people for their own agenda. I am ashamed I ever was a Democrat. The government needs to fire get rid of and imprisonments for all who have acted against us the people who had voted them into office. They need to work for the people not destroy them! God bless America the land that I loveStand beside her and guide her not destroy her Amen🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏

    4. The crimes of the liberal democrats are way to many and far reaching to ever make atonement for. If they all gave their lives it wouldn’t come close. They are the most disgusting trash that ever existed.

      1. Amen to that Jim.they have done nothin for America the lalst four years.
        And stiill carryin a grudge with their generated hate. Puppet Biden should
        be the one impeached including pislosi, schumer, shifless and to include
        Killery Clinton and the rest of the gang and squad. Let us not forget the
        greatest congresswoman(IN HER MIND ONLY) Maxine Waters.

  1. Mr.Graham…praying that Lord God hears our prayers and all this junk will be dismissed…Lord Jesus…plz hear our prayers….life and character is in the hands of you God Almighty…Thank you for answered prayers. The nation of America thanks you. Amen.

  2. If any crime was committed, it was the Dem’s that launched the attack on congress, not Trump. He got the blame, and the Dem’s are going to fail at proving it. The real question is “Who is POTUS”? Biden is too busy building his empire, and only reads from the teleprompter. Who is putting the words on the TELEPROMPTER screen for Biden to speak?

  3. Dems are throwing a fit bc I had a raspberry jelly (red) sandwich for breakfast instead of a grape(blue)one. They seem to cry over every single little thing.

  4. Every time I hear about this, it reminds me that the democrats don’t think things through. They have impeached a private citizen, they have set a precedence that we can impeach for anything, as long as the opposing party is in office and get away with it. What do they think will happen if the republicans take back congress in 2022? That they will just sit back and say that Biden and Harris have done nothing wrong?? What about in 10 years, 20 years? This is now on the books as a possibility

    1. Patricia you are absolutely right! They NEVER think things through. But the real problem is they know that the Republicans will not retaliate. We never have and they are sure we won’t. Which is why we need to get some real conservative America loving people elected. I know they keep saying that we should not make a new political party. That it Always fails and it usually benefits the Democrats by splitting up the Republican party. And then we are stuck with all the RINO members who are mostly in leadership. But I think if we concentrate on the people who are sick of the status quo in both parties, and take enough from the Republicans and Democrats to decimated both parties and build a 3rd party for the People, we might just pull it off!

  5. And in the center ring, under the big top, ladies and gentlemen, we have the head dirtbag of the republican party, mitch mcConnell and his filthy accomplice crying chuck schumer. The ring master for today’s phony proceedings will be the oldest fool in congress patrick, frog throat, leahy….

    1. I thought BARNUM & BAILEY WENT OUT OF BUSINESS. BARNUM QUOTED. THEIRS A SUCKER BORN EVERY MINUTE. SEEMS HE MENT DEMOCRATS. I WONDER WHAT IT’S GOING TO TAKE TO GET MILITIAS IN AMERICA TO STAND UP AND REMOVE THESE OUT OF CONTROL POLITICIANS FROM OUR GOVERNMENT BY ANY MEANS NECESSARY. THE CONSTITUTION GIVES US THIS RIGHT.

  6. What a trial, you have a Scotus Chief Justice Impersonator as he is acting as an Officer of the Supreme court. In regular life that would be against everything we stand for and should be sent to prison. The constitution does not say chief justice or whoever we appoint. Therefore it is illegal.

    1. Carrol Hoel: Actually it’s supposed to the the Chief Justice who presides over the impeachment of A PRESIDENT. Donald Trump is a private citizen, therefor the Chief Justice is not involved. Justice Roberts is correct in not presiding over this sham. ALL THE MORE REASON TO VOTE THAT IT IS UNCONSTITUTIONAL. And BTW: your first sentence doesn’t make one iota of sense!

  7. Why wait until 2022?? Do it now. Support Marjorie Taylor Greene. 75 Million Trump Supporters can give $5.00 each and with a few Senators to help the Swamp will start to Drain. Include Mitt Romney, and Joe Biden and his “Vice”, Maxine Walters, OAC and the Squad. Call your Representative and Sent your $5.00 now.

  8. Political theater is all it is. An effort to distract from Biden’s disastrous acts. I expect this moron to order another lockdown. That will finish Americans completely, basically starving us out as he destroys jobs.

    1. “I expect this moron to order another lockdown”
      The answer to that Marlene is for everybody to refuse a lockdown! They can’t arrest all of us!!!

  9. IT APPEARS THERE ARE MANY SENATORS AND CONGRESSMEN AND SPECIALLY THE SPEAKER OF THE HOUSE TO BE IMPEACHED. THERE IS A NEED TO LIMIT THE TERM OF CONGRESS TO JUST TWO TERMS. THEY BECOME MORE CRAZY IF THEY STAY LONGER,

  10. Pelosi and her gang of criminals have become the masters of decievement, they create issues for people to focus on while their quietly working on ways to expand their wealth/power ( things we would not approve of and will most like be hurting are country) NOT to help us and, earn their fat paychecks.

  11. The Dimorats are terrified that President Trump will run in 2024. This has left them petrified. The media has spread, and continues to spread the most degrading hogwash which has left them stupefied. Most of the American people do not think that using a political system to put on trial a non-sitting President is wrong.

  12. If President Trump bears any responsibility…then the people who never lifted a finger and encouraged all the disasters that took place since the kneeling……..need to be taken to task!!!!! Right from the crooked top!!!
    I am disgusted by the people who are such hypocrites….. not to mention impeaching long gone presidents…

  13. I was always taught – and, as an educator, taught my students – that a person was presumed innocent until proven guilty. Now comes Nasty Pelosi who has determined Donald Trump guilty before any form of trial. She has presumed to re-write many of our Country’s laws to suit her political desires. Perhaps we should consider taking HER to task for HER improper interpretation and application of our Country’s laws.

  14. Do not send any money to the republican party–only send it to the person running for office–I do not trust the women over the national party–she is Romney’s niece—she will will give Romney, Cheney and the other rinos money–do not trust her ! Democrats are evil–when they start taking your guns it will be time for a 5 million man march on DC–you can not let Dems. start chipping away at 2nd Amend. SEMPER FI

    1. Totally agree.
      Donations SHOULD go directly to THE PERSON OR GROUP SUPPORTING THIS GREAT PRESIDENT. IF IT’S LEGAL.

      1. 5.000.000 man march sounds good. THEY CAN’T KILL US ALL. SET THE DATE AND MAKE SURE CONGRESS IS IN. I LIVE IN CALIFORNIA AND IT TAKES A WEEK TO DRIVE THERE.

  15. This circus of Pelosi’s should never have gone this far. It’s illegal and against our Constitution to impeach a citizen and not having a Supreme Judge presiding over an impeachment in itself is illegal by our Constitution. You can’t have a gop judging and be a juror. Democrats are being allowed to make all their own rules, WHY? What if nobody but them showed up for this circus? Would they still be allowed to proceed ? This is ridiculous, unconstitutional, illegal and corrupt

    1. They do not care if it’s constitutional, They know that nothing Hillary did was penalized.
      They know that by the time it goes to court, their damage is done.
      Every time they can damage American ethics and morals it has been a success.
      Get American’s laid off, get them fired. Stop manufacturing profits, and hurt our economy. That is a success for them, and our Chinese adversaries.
      Defund our police and military, make the criminal element stronger and bolder. They like that. The democrat damage to America has been gravely underestimated. It’s about more than shredding and ignoring our constitution. The endgame is to destroy America’s sovereignty as a country in the world!

  16. IT’S TO BAD THE CAPITAL POLICE DIDN’T JOIN THE PROTEST AND OPEN ALL THE DOORS OF CONGRESS. WE WOULDN’T BE EXPOSED TO THIS REDICULESS ANTI CONSTITUTIONAL TRIAL.

  17. Everybody in America could vote against democrats forever now but the dems are all rigged to win anyway with the country-wide Dominion election equipment that “elects” based only on software manipulations . We have just seen that happen , Dominion CEO even bragged about it , saying HE MADE SURE Trump won’t win ! The dems don’t even need the illegal diseased hordes they want to come in again “to vote” . They just want the criminal hordes to destroy America per their NWO agenda goals . Get rid of Dominion & Smartmatic “election” equipment or we will be stuck with these criminal enemies of America – FOREVER !

  18. The Liars won’t tell you that Trump offered to place 10,000 troops at the WH prior to January 6th. Dems are so full of hatred they lie, parse, cheat and coverup, but people are beginning to realize that.

  19. The Demos can not impeach 75 million voters who love Trump. So they want to politically kill Trump. He has exposed them for what they are. Power Hungary, evil imbeciles who do not care what happens to the working people of our great country. I will go to hell rather then vote for a Democrat so long as I live.

  20. Impeachment must be constitutional put Joe Biden on it he is said to be president by way of theft impeach and bring back the real president Donald Trump thanks

  21. Why isn’t someone speaking up and bringing charges about circumventing the Constitution. The House and Senate should be brought before the Supreme Court for breaking our laws. they have disregarded our law’s spelled out in the Constitution. I served Four years in our military and took an oath to uphold and defend the Constitution and i would have had my life ruined if I had not stood by my word. Why can Congress ignore this same constitution and get by with it. There is a higher Court called the Bible they will answer to someday. Please read Revelations 22-12:16

  22. Do you notice that the 20 something Antifa members, that were arrested as part of the Jan. 6,2021 riot, are not being mentioned anymore. I guess the media got their marching orders, from the Democrats or Chine, who knows. They are only talking about the right leaning group. It is a shame because I think that both parties are to blame, The Democrats for doing illegal actions, during the election and the Republicans, for letting them get by with it. This has been going on since the 1960″s, only today the leftist fear mongers, are in power to ruin our country. It is a shame the Republicans are to weak to do what is right for our country. That is what showed up when the RINO’s were in power, the first part of President Trumps administration. They couldn’t even figure out how to get rid of the worst medical bill that was ever written. We ara not paying triple what we were paying before Obamacare.

  23. This is a sham by the communist demoncrats! Look at all of the executive orders which are destroying our USA. We can only pray that TRUMP returns to fix our current sham of a government. We need Trump. Our country needs Trump. Our country will be lost, we will not have any rights, we will be in poverty without Trump. And as far as the media covering the truth: we need a reversal of the FCC decision to abolish the Fairness Doctrine of 8/4/87! We need term limits for all of those in Washington (not just the president); and when their terms end, so does their pay (their former jobs will await their return [and no lobbying either])!

  24. Poor Democrat’s for their pure hatred of DJ Trump and everything he did for this country . They will feel the pay back in the next Elections so say good bye to many. Biden reversed everything Trump did with his pen, now it up to the Supreme Court to decide was that legal or not.

  25. How disgraceful it is that there is a group of people in Congress who harbor so much hate in their souls to the point of trying to destroy one human being who has helped America to become the leader of the free world. President Donald J. Trump is not a perfect human and neither is anyone in Congress. We all have our faults but the biggest fault we all see is the Democrats and Republicans chasing after President Trump to destroy him.

    This impeachment and trial is a political sham! The Democrats want to make sure President Trump doesn’t come back in 2024 because they know he will demolish them in a fair and honest election. I don’t know if he will return and if he doesn’t I hope God raises up one who will defeat these evil lying souls who have become the agents of Lucifer.

  26. I pray and wish that people would spell the current presidents name correctly . It is spelled Bidet or toilet where it resides .

  27. Pelosi costing the taxpayers millions of dollars and under mining the validity of the Constitution is mind blowing.

    1. PELOSI IS NOTHING BUT A VICIOUS USELESS IGNORANT HYPROCRITE, WHO THINKS SHE IS THE QUEEN OF AMERICA! SHE IS NOTHING BUT A DRYED UP OLD HAG THAT HAS NO BRAIN!

  28. Beloved Jesus, Lord, God and Savior, I call upon Your Holy name and plead Your precious blood that You so willingly gave for your children. Please remember us in this, our hour of need and have mercy on our nation and on President Trump. The United States of America was founded under Your principles, for Your glorification, my most Beloved Savior. Hear our plea for mercy as UNPRINCIPLED politicians make a mockery of our constitution and twist it to fit their agenda with the aim of shutting your children up and leaving our country’s “throat” exposed so that fascists and/or communists can swoop in and take our GOD GIVEN rights. Have mercy on us and rebuild a hedge of protection against the evil that seeks to destroy us. I ask this in Your precious name knowing that Your will be done

    1. What a beautiful and elequant prayer pleading our righteous God to intercede and expose the children of the father of lies. The accuser. Satan runs the Democratic party

  29. I’m anxious to see which Republican, other than a woman , pick up the righteous Mantle and begin impeachment proceeding against Biden. Let’s start with hey if you don’t fire this prosecutor you won’t get your money I think that’s documented . Or what about the big guy. His ten million. Or being cozy with China. Dig deeper and bet there is some dirty deeds done dirt cheap. Biden you smell of nothing but corruption. Bottle it up, patent it and selling it you greedy thug

  30. I hope everyone of the democrats that spoke out of turn are impeached fast and furious if the Republicans don’t impeach those dems than they need to be voted out of office 👌🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸

  31. Blanket impeachment of ALL Dems in office! One fell swoop, take them all out, the start charging them with the crimes they have committed. Military tribunal, since they are “ gubmint people” and subject to u.s. laws! Start with the main loon Piglosi, with the rest to follow!

  32. Heavenly Father, we ask for your guidance at this time to get our country back on the right track and not only expose the wrongs that have been done to our rightful President, Donald Trump, but give us strong leadership that will bring those wrong doers to justice . Good men and women of principle who are brave enough to step up to the plate and do the will of the people. We ask these things humbly and in the name of our savior, Jesus Christ. Amen

    1. Amen, and open the eyes of the hearts of Christians who have chosen not to see and have sided on the side of those who follow evil and call it good — the media, blm, antifa, fb, youtube, google, et al. Let Your light expose ALL evil and set Your children free

  33. Biden is a feakin puppet! Harris is gonna rule the roost soon and also be a puppet. Pelosi needs a straight jacket. The other high profile dems need to take a long walk off a short pier. They all should be arrested and tried for treason. I know nobody is perfect and we shouldn’t judge others. They make it difficult not to. Lord forgive me 🙏

  34. They are all a bunch of criminals and it’s nothing to them standing up there raising their hands and swearing under oath and then go on with the lies. They think they are above the law but God said vengeance is mine and he will repay and God help them when they begin to reap what they sowed. All Just Santanic.
