Lindsey Graham increases pressure on Biden to dismiss Trump impeachment

As the nation reels in the aftermath of the January 6 assault on the U.S. Capitol, Democrats and some Republicans continue trying to convince the American public — and their colleagues — that President Donald Trump should be convicted in his upcoming impeachment trial.

According to Breitbart, Sen. Lindsey Graham (D-SC) is ordering President-elect Joe Biden to “stand down” on the impeachment issue, as he claims it would only further divide and already extremely divided nation and adding to that, would be contrarian to Biden’s calls for unity. 

Graham made the statements over the weekend in an interview on Fox News’ “Sunday Morning Futures,” telling host Maria Bartiromo that Trump’s second impeachment is “unconstitutional” and that he wants Biden to pressure Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY) to drop the matter altogether.

“President Trump is trying to heal the nation. Pursuing impeachment after he leaves the office will further divide the country. It will ruin the start of your presidency, Joe Biden,” Graham said. “You need to stand up to the radical left and tell Schumer to dismiss what I think is an unconstitutional attempt to impeach President Trump out of office. Stand down.”

Graham held nothing back as he went on to trash the idea of a second impeachment, calling it “insane at every level” and insisted that there’s no point in impeaching a president who’ll be departing from the White House in a matter of a few days.

“It’s being driven by the radical left. And what is Joe Biden doing? He’s sitting on the sidelines and doing nothing. One phone call from President-elect Biden would stop this,” Graham said.

The South Carolina senator also reached out to his Republican colleagues, some of whom are on board with the idea of convicting Trump, saying that if they join with Democrats in the Senate trial, it will leave the Republican party in ruins.

As the president gears up his legal defense team for the upcoming Senate trial, Business Insider reported on Monday that his personal lawyer, Rudy Giuliani, has refused to act as Trump’s counsel, saying that his decision is based on the fact that he will be a “witness.”

As of this writing, there hasn’t been any reports or indication that Biden has decided to pressure Schumer into dismissing the case.

I really don’t understand what good is going to come out of this impeachment. Every one is going to be upset and once you allow all of the information to come out, you never know who is going to be the one who gets hurt. I am sure that the trump team is going to show the evidence of the election and you never know what is there.

Biden needs to be impeached for crimes we already know about and probably more. Harris is unfit to serve as vp. Congress needs to be reamed and every traitorous person needs to be on prison orange.
We the PEOPLE need to take our country back now. BTW the constitution gives us the right to refuse to pay our taxes. NO TAXATION WITHOUT REPRESENTATION.
Apparently, Congress has stolen the votes of 81 million, that means 3/4 of America has been disenfranchised.
I for one, refuse to support an illegitimate fool, and a fool that works on her knees. Not my president.

I think Biden will be no more than a yes man. Obama already plans on getting a judgeship, Hillary will come out of hiding and Pelosi will continue running her witchy show.
I want to know, as president, why did Big Pharma easily talk Trump out of revealing there ARE cures for every disease. Trump made a terrible disservice to man so Big Pharma & its cohorts can still rake in the billions, bribing Congress yearly. Our government is a huge danger to its constituents.

Graham wants Joe Biden to tell Chuckie Schumer to “stand down” on the impeachment of President Trump. what a laugh! Biden has done nothing but call our president a racist, White Supremist, Nazi, etc. He and the main stream media and Twitter has done and said everything they can to get his followers to change their minds about OUR President, but it won’t happen. If you really want to heal this Country and unite us, then you would stop Nancy Pelosi and Chuckie Schumer with this sham impeachment! You will further divide our country! We know what
happened at the Capital building on Jan. 6th WAS a result of some BLM and ANTIFA radials as well as some Democrats and also a CNN so called reporter!! I’ve never seen a Trump supporter carrying backpacks at a Trump Rally or March!!! You Democrats will never silence our voices and we will show you in 2022 and 2024 just what we think of your agenda!

Why would any intelligent person want to seek the Presidential office of the US after the way the Republican Party have treated President Trump. His own Party have turned on him and sided with the Democrats’ when it got warm in the kitchen and now the elite Republican establishment are pressuring him to LIE and denounce the fraud and theft in the election. I guess we now have one party in our Country ” the Republican arm of the Democrat Party”

The establishment Republicans have been in bed with big business for a very long time. They owe their lives to the big money people just like the Dems do. So they are working together to get rid of Trump. The Republicans really are being fools to help the Dems. The Dems want to get rid of them and have one party rule. If they get what they want Republicans will be out of work.

It is getting obvious to all that THE REPUBLICAN PARTY HAS ALREADY FAILED THEIR CONSTITUENTS BY NEVER SUPPORTING TRUMP ANYWAY. Maybe it is time to start a NEW PARTY and leave these RINOS to their fate. It is interesting that Graham is listed as a (D-SC) in the article. Graham is a “fair weather friend” to Trump anyway. The lockstep of the radical anti-constitutional DEMS has shown a party unity that the Republicans could never seem to muster to support TRUMPS MOVEMENT! THAT is something McConnell failed miserably to achieve as he NEVER supported any president who did not come from the ranks of the PROFESSIONAL POLITICIANS! I would propose to all GOP politicians to get on the train, or expect to lose you comfy CAREERS! Things WILL NEVER RETURN TO THE WAY THY WERE BEFORE TRUMP! STOP HOPING FOR THAT!

I have a question, kind of important….I want to know why conservatives that are being demonized and fired from there jobs do not sue companies for this. It is illegal to fire someone just for being a conservative. If companies can fire an employee for being conservative then they can fire them for being liberal too. Like I said conservatives should start filing law suit against companies that have such practices. and hurt their pocket book they deserve that at the very least.
When someone points at a person and accuses them, then fire the finger pointer.

Pelosi is right, we cannot move on until we have impeached ” Nancy Pelosi “. For the following crimes.
1. Gross incompetence for failing to take care of the needs of the people.
2. Negligence in the performance of her duties in protecting the people, the country, and the constitution.
3. The injury and yes the death of citizens while she played politics with the stimulus relief bill.
4 The use of her position as speaker of the house to conduct personal vendettas against people.
I could go on, but I think that there is enough here to do to her what she wants to do to others.

There should be term limits like there is on the president do you agree.
I think that terms limits would help, like only two nonconsecutive terms. also remove congressional immunity, to force greater transparency, and greater accountability to the people. Terms limits alone will not work. I have thought more on it, and have come to this conclusion. as long as the dems control the government it will never happen. The only way to do this is to put it in the constitution, a referendum. of course the dems are trying to destroy the constitution. Just ask Pelosi, or Schumer, didn’t they take an oath to uphold and protect the constitution?!?!?

Gary m (@guest_1108982)

The main part of the Supreme Court’s job is OVERSIGHT, and if someone or some state is violating the constitution, then the court should step in, whether or not there is a complaint or brief filed in a lower court or the high court directly. If the court is not doing this, then the court is not doing the due diligence it is suppose to do, to protect the constitution. And if the court is not going to do its job, then it is up to we the people to do the job, and if we have to do the job then we just as well fire the court, we are the only ones that can. It makes no difference if a judge is conservative or liberal if the judge does not follow the constitution. The constitution was not put there to protect the administration, the legislature, or the court, it was put there to protect we the people, from the government period, by putting in guide lines for the government to follow. When the government does not want to follow, then we the people have the right and the power to change or remove the government. I think that the court gets so tongue tied with the literal meaning of the law that it forgets what the most important part of its job is. OVERSIGHT.

Since officials in a number of states have taken it upon themselves to make laws with out the legislative bodies in those states, that the constitution gives the legislative bodies the power to do. They are ignoring the constitution, and need to be reigned in. It is past time for the SCROTUS to do its due diligence, and step in, if the SCROTUS does not wish to do so, then we the people will have to do the job of the court, and we will not need the court.
Liberals think that they can change the laws just by wishing it, and that is wrong. That is the way kings, queens, tyrants, and dictators rule. and that is why our forefathers wrote the constitution, to keep the corrupt from getting in power in government. That is why we have come to the point of needing to set term limits and to remove immunity that protects those that would try to abuse their position by creating greater transparency in the government.

Just like they did with the Hunter Biden scandal, the fake news and the media, are covering up what states are doing to hide the evidence. It is not only in the so-called battle ground states. The governors and judges, and election officials in these states, are violating the law and the constitution of the United States, by making laws illegally, and suppressing the evidence, by refusing to allow ballots, and machines to be investigated. As much as I hate to say this the Supreme Court is condoning this behavior, by not enforcing the constitution. This is their job, to protect the constitution by enforcing it. The Supreme Courts job of oversight does not end because a case is not filed in a lower court. There is nothing in the constitution that says the Supreme Court it’s self cannot call on the DOJ or Superior Court to take action on such matters, and for it not to do so is negligence.
As I have said before and will repeat.
——————————————————————————————————————————–
Liberals think that they can change the laws just by wishing it, and that is wrong. That is the way kings, queens, tyrants, and dictators rule.

The constitution was not put there to protect the administration, the legislature, or the court, it was put there to protect we the people, from the government, by putting in guide lines for the government to follow.

WE DON’T NEED MORE GOVERNMENT, WE NEED TO CONTROL THE GOVERNMENT WE HAVE.
——————————————————————————————————————————–
U.S. Code Section 242 of Title 18, Deprivation of rights under color of law, makes it a crime for a person acting under color of any law to willfully deprive a person of a right or privilege protected by the Constitution or laws of the United States.
For the purpose of Section 242, acts under “color of law” include acts not only done by federal, state, or local officials within the their lawful authority, but also acts done beyond the bounds of that official’s lawful authority, if the acts are done while the official is purporting to or pretending to act in the performance of his/her official duties.

Some states have gotten the idea that they can just change laws because they want to. However that is not the case, when a state becomes a state they sign on to the constitution and the bill of rights, and all of the laws contained with in the constitution. These are the over riding laws of the land, and apply to all states, and can not be just dismissed out of hand by any state governor, state legislature, or any state official, or local officials. It does not work that way. The constitution and the bill of rights can not be changed by any government body be it federal state or local. Changes to the constitution and the bill of rights can only be made by we the people. Not with E.O. or legislation by any governing body, or any whim of someone on the supreme court. This is to keep government from usurping the power of the people.

The supreme Court is “appointed” to oversee the implementation of the constitution, and the protection of the constitution, by enforcing the constitution.
Lately it would seem that the Supreme Court is neglecting its role of oversight, and enforcement. Which means it is not protecting the constitution.

The Supreme Court is being negligent in its duty of oversight, of a number of states that have violated the constitution, by letting officials make laws illegally, instead of the legislatures in those states. This falls squarely in the scope of the Supreme Court. Whether or not any complaint has been filed in any other court or the Supreme Court Directly. This is the job of the Supreme Court in its roll of oversight, in the protection of the constitution. I am sorely disappointed by the Supreme Courts actions or lack there of, to do what is necessary to protect the constitution and thereby the country and the people. Trump thought he appointed three conservatives to the Supreme Court, I think he guessed wrong.

Dems, Repubs. all are establishment politicians, and there in is the real problem. You see people think that Trump was elected to drain the swamp. That is not true, as he can not do that. What he was elected to do was expose the people in the swamp, which he did quite well. Now they are out in the open it is up to we the people to clean up the swamp. I mean all of the parties ( Dems, Repubs, Indys ).
