Sen. Graham calls on McConnell to lead and oppose impeachment

Top GOP Senator Lindsay Graham (R-SC) shocked the Senate by ordering former Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-JY) to declare the impeachment as unconstitutional and oppose the Democrat push to impeach President Trump.

Arguing that impeaching Trump after leaving office is unconstitutional and would create an endless series of impeachments as political warfare, Graham said: “…I think it is unconstitutional to impeach a person who is out of office. That will create never-ending revenge against Presidents, particularly former Presidents.”

McConnell, reportedly furious with Trump and blaming him for the Republican Senate losses in Georgia has not publicly opposed the impeachment of Trump, though he would not change the Senate schedule to hold an impeachment trial. He wrote: “While the press has been full of speculation, I have not made a final decision on how I will vote and I intend to listen to the legal arguments when they are presented to the Senate.”

After the House approved the single article of impeachment in a bipartisan vote, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi has not sent it to the Senate.

Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) warned Senate Republicans that voting to convict President Donald Trump would destroy the Republican Party. Paul, in an interview on Fox News pointed out that if Republican leadership supported impeachment, they would be responsible for the destruction of the Republican Party. He also reminded Republican leadership that Trump attracted millions of new people to the party. Paul explained:

My fear is that if Republicans, particularly Republican leadership goes along with this impeachment, they’ll destroy the party. I think it is a hugely partisan exercise on the part of the Democrats. But for Republicans who go along with it, I think they will destroy our party. Donald Trump isn’t everything in the party but he did bring a lot of people to the party.

Graham agreed with Paul and called on Republican leaders to save the party and lead. He said: “As to the Republican Party, if we throw in the towel, or perceived to have thrown in the towel, and not fighting against this impeachment, the Republican Party, as Rand Paul said, will crack up. So I’m asking Republican leaders in the Senate to lead.

Reiterating his call for McConnell to lead Graham directly appealed to McConnell to fight back against impeachment:  “…what we need right now is for Senator McConnell to unequivocally say that the second impeachment of Donald Trump after he leaves office is not only unconstitutional, it is bad for the country, and stand up and fight back.”

Graham and Paul are right. If Republican leaders vote to convict President Trump, the Republican party can say goodbye to all the millions of Trump supporters the president worked so hard to bring in.

  1. Mitch McConnell is a modern day Judas that stabbed President Trump in the back, I wonder if he got his 30 pieces of silver. His wife has ties to China business deals which I sure he caters to –makes him no better than Bidumb. I hope Trump forms a third party of Patriots and I will never vote Republican again. The McConnell is nothing more than a POS and needs to go———–to He!!

    1. McConnell will never be able to go outside it will not matter how many secret service with him will matter. When you do wrong to the Constitution you are a victim of your own conflict. Polsi is her own victim of self made uncontitution making. She took an OATH. The oath is what sets you free. You step on the Constitution you do it on your own. She is making the House appear as a den of foreign occupiers. This is still America and we like our freedom those that try to take freedom away from anyone will in the end have it done to them as well. Chief Justice Roberts not wanting anything to do with this unconstitutional impeachment is a little late for what the Constitution says of a foreign intervention into our election and covers his eyes to lady freedom of a fair election will be his own destruction in time. They can be taken out of the office we respect for all that take away others freedom, because they do not like that person. That is called a kangaroo Court.

    2. It is not the Republican Party that is going against this false impeachment it is only a few. McConnell and Liz Chenny are the ones that need to be take-out of the party. Making a new party is not good. That is like tearing down a good house and build another that takes to long and that creates more bad issues. To save a good box of apples you find the one that is bad and you throw it out. That way you now have a good box of apples. Time for Americans no matter what party. You want a Government that does this Country good and strong then throw out the bad apples. You do not throw out the baby with the wash. We already have the laws to protect the good and to throw out the bad. You throw out the good you create what what you condemn .

        1. Then tell me why when you take all those polls that ask if Pres. Trump did a good job the results are always 90% or better for Trump. Sorry for you, I and many more like me still think the election was rigged. Repeatedly counting the same illegal votes and not correcting the voter rolls and removing the dead, duplicate, and illegal votes does not induce confidence in our electoral process. Seeing films of box upon box being brought in to the polling area’s and then hidden out of site until the polls have closed and hear the PA system tell everyone including the inspectors that its time to leave and then see a few stragglers pretend to get ready to leave and when everyone else is gone lock the doors pull out the hidden boxes and start processing them then WE KNOW FOR A FACT THAT WE HAVE EVERY RIGHT TO HAVE NO CONFIDENCE IN OUR ELECTORAL SYSTEM BECAUSE IT HAS BEEN CORRUPTED.

          1. I’m still wondering at what stage is the FBI’s investigation into voter fraud at? I don’t think I’ve heard of any creditable denials of the actual voter fraud, No just a lot of blatant attacks and undeserved sarcasm toward the brave whistleblowers for questioning what they understand to be voter fraud.

        2. Hope you watch very carefully what is going to happen to your taxes, health care, jobs since he is letting in millions more illegals, 401k etc etc. You should also be concerned about your children and grandchildren if you have any or plan to. Best you do some research as to what his policies are going to do. Wait until you see gas prices pretty soon.

        3. No, RB, it was Beijing and Tehran that interfered and colluded with the Dems to get Trump out. And now that they have their bought and paid for puppet in the office, expect to hear a lot more from your Commie and fascist friends.
          And remember, you voted for it.

      1. Constitution, when all of the apples have gone bad, it’s time to get a new box. When a house becomes infested with rats and black mold, it is time to burn it down and build another. The nation’s founders specifically warned against the very two party system we have for good reason, which all with their eyes open are seeing now.
        The corruption is so deep, on both sides, that they all have something on one another, none of them can be indicted or face justice without destroying the whole system. It is time to accept, despite 12+ years of conditioning to look only at the two parties, ever since the fed DOE (consisting, of course, of those two parties) began, that this is no longer working, and try something else.

    3. Mitch has no plan to run again, so i think he’d not care. he’ll retire with his wife in China. Need to impeach the democrat leaders, Pelosi, Shumer, Eric S, Adam Shiff, and the director of the FBI who have kept the Hunter Biden laptop for a long time, and not doing anything. he’s one of the deep state. Congresswoman Marjorie Greene should start the impeachment article for Joe Biden, the new president who’s involved in business money laundering from foreign countries while he was a vice president, using his power. made his family very rich.

      1. Absolutely and Hillary and Pelosi investigated for starting the riot at the Capitol. Who paid for John Earle Sullivan’s trip from Salt Lake City to DC? He was a Trump hater as those two are. There were two people killed, a woman and a cop, somebody needs to be accountable.

      2. AMEN to that!!!!!! (Mitch just got re-elected!!!!) The others need to be impeached; for harressement of the last 4+ years. They only knew one word, “impeach” & did NOTHING in the line of their duties, as elected officials. They’ve all gone “batty” with their “hate”!!!!!! (Oh, add Maxine Waters to that list!! She’s crazier than a goon!)

  2. I will not support the republican party with one more red cent. They have deserted me and My President Trump. I will not vote Democrat but will see what what transpires. Maybe this nation will wake up and throw out this illegally elected imposter of a president.

    1. Rush said the Republicans are sending out urgent requests for money to fix all of the problems TRUMP had already fixed and Biden has already destroyed. He said DO NOT GIVE THEM A PENNEY. They did not stand by him so we should not stand by them. Already I have gotten money requests from the Republican congressional committee. Will not tell you where I told them to go and why.

  3. so how does one start a new party? That agree with neither the democrats or the republicans? Some kind of independence party or patriot party? Other names could be used, those are what came to my mind. I’ve had brain surgery and sometimes my vocabulary is limited as to what comes to mind when I’m writing. I’m sure there are others that can think of more better ideas. OR

    we take the next 2 years and try to recall all those we don’t agree with, or at least censure them, to give them a heads up they screwed up and we’re not happy. That their time in office is coming to an end. I’m sure there are many ways we could find to show them how unhappy we are with them and make them sweat and find a better replacement for them.

    well that’s 2 ideas that came to my mind. I like the first one myself, no idea how to do it, but that is the one I like.

  4. McConnell will never be able to go outside it will not matter how many secret service with him will matter. When you do wrong to the Constitution you are a victim of your own conflict. Polsi is her own victim of self made uncontitution making. She took an OATH. The oath is what sets you free. You step on the Constitution you do it on your own.

This is still America and we like our freedom those that try to take freedom away from anyone will in the end have it done to them as well.

    1. GOT THAT RIGHT, OBAMA’S CRIMINAL ACTS STARTED THE FIRST YEAR HE WAS IN OFFICE, WHEN CONVICTED HE WILL SPEND THE REST OF HIS LIFE IN JAIL. AND HIL LIAR Y TREASON IS THE LEAST OF HER WORRIES.

  5. President Trump has not yet been impeached. To be impeached requires the house to vote for indictment and the senate to vote with a 2/3rds majority for conviction.
    Fifteen minutes after Trump was sworn in the Democrats started impeachment and then aborted the process before voting on it.
    The Democrats again started to impeach the president and voted for indictment. The senate then failed to find Trump guilty.
    This time the Democrats went in eight hours from start to finish and has issued an indictment to the senate. The senate as proscribed by law will not meet until the 19th of January and are not allowed any new business until the following day.

    What all this means is president Trump has not yet been impeached even once and it is extremely unlikely he will be found guilty this time.

  6. Personally I think Mitch should be recalled because he is causing unrest in the Republican Party by constantly saying thinks about the President. He is too fickle in his old age and needs to go.

  7. I think they both are full of the swamp , I quit the republicans and will never go democrat , when I vote it will be independent , Iam sick of both party’s

  8. I am a non-denominational CHRISTian that goes to Calvary Chapel and listens to the international CHRISTian Satellite Network CSNRADIO .com SEVEN days a week especially Monday – Friday. I even listened to it in Germany 🇩🇪 and Hungary 🇭🇺 !

    I LIVED IN, not just visited communist China 🇨🇳 in 2010 . So I KNOW how bad it is to live under communism and I am doing EVERYthing I can here to stop it from coming here. Venezuela WAS a wealthy, prosperous country until it became communist as a 3rd world country with people eating out of garbage cans !!! In China, I attended a university that not only can one get a master’s degree in Marxism, but it had a statue of Chairman Mao in its front yard.
    ( I was fortunate to stumble upon ONE toilet at the university. Every other restroom had stinky porcelain holes in the ground we had to squat over. Upon entering the front entrance to the university and near the plush 28 story building I lived in, the stench was so bad, you had to hold your nose. Electrical wiring hung from the ceiling of the two buildings too. )

    To quote Eskify, “ Through communist policies he starved millions of people, possibly as many as 80 million. He killed any intellectuals who disagreed with him, he put people in labour camps, and condoned beating and stoning people to death in struggle sessions.“

    I saw the plans of the left on their own letterhead paper to murder us, especially the seniors and disabled, and the vaccines 💉 is just one of the ways. ( To build your immunity, eat foods made from GOD like fresh fruits, fresh vegetables, and walnuts. Take a healthy vitamin-mineral drink, Zinc, Elderberry, Vitamin D-3, and Vitamin A daily. Get 8 hours of sleep daily and exercise. I don’t wear a mask because it’s unhealthy unless I am forced to in which case I wear an accepted face shield so that I can breathe AND I am trying to make a political and health statement by NOT wearing one. We are NOT cows waiting for the slaughter. We are humans who can reason. ) Read the first sentence of the Georgia Guidestones also known as Georgia Stonehenge supported by the left elitists .

    1. Robin, I see the evil in the faces of Biden’s cabinet members. I say my prayers daily. I pray daily that all of the anti-Constitution politicians and their corrupt censoring buddies in big tech all suffer famine and ruin for the remainder of their days, and they shall forever NEVER dwell in the House of the LORD…

  9. There was no evidence presented at the 2nd impeachment. Trump didnt incite crap! The Capitol breech as it was called, was pre-planned by Schumer, the Mayor, Drinker of the House Piglosi and probably McConnell. That happened before noon. Trumps speech didnt start until AFTER 12pm, and was over at 1:11 pm. No worries, Im sure after the whit hate collected the laptops including dum-dum Piglosi’s and the raid on the CIA by the marines we should be seeing some interesting intel soon. Its far form over.

  10. Why is not the Speaker of the House, being investigated for her complaisantly in fomenting the conditions that led to the riot, insurrection that attacked the Capitol building?

  11. Where are the articles of impeachment for Biden the Congresswoman was to bring today- if Mitch wants impeachment – put it on Biden – we know he is a criminal – tapes & laptops prove it

  12. WE HAVE A CHURCH FRIEND THAT HAS A FRIEND THAT WAS IN DC THE DAY OF THE MARCH…SHE WAS AN I WITNESS TO BUSES PULLING AND UNLODING ANTIFA PEOPLE THAT WENT STRAIGT THE CAPITOL DRESSED AS TRUP SUPPORTERS……..YOU NEVER HEAR THIS FROM ANY OF THE PRESS OR ANYONE…

  13. A trial will divide the country even more. It’s obvious dems don’t abide by the Constitution. One good thing is that it could delay Biden’s agenda.

  14. It is time for Mitch McConnell to be cut down to size. He has been riding high for too long. If he still wants to led, he needs to get all the RINOS together and led them out of the SWAMP.

  15. I will never accept Biden as a President. Nor Kama! Neither come close to any moral values I believe in. Listen to them both?? They do not believe in the constitution. They swear to do no harm? But threatened the lives of their opposition! What they are doing along with the deep state are Crimes against humanity. Watch 1984. The story line fits with the plan they hope yo accomplish! Do you want to live here? They have indoctrinated our children in the same way! It is heartbreaking, I have given my children everything I could possibly give and more? They think we are just conspiracy theorists? Yet we are censored! Sorry kids, but this is not the world we hoped you would have? You may want to ask God why this is happening? Dig deep? The answer is in the way you are choosing to live your life? You will feel the pain when your children turn on you? And under this kind of dictatorship??? They will!!

  16. McConnell is the reason republicans lost the Georgia senate seats. He knew when he didn’t have a simple vote in senate for the extra 1400.00 checks that he could cause them to lose. Other than the cheating; he’s the one republican I blame. Be glad when his dumb a– is out of the senate.

  17. McConnell is a traitor and a liar! Senate run off in Georgia was lost because of the same cheating that happened in the Nov 3rd election. President Trump had nothing to do with that, but I’ll bet McConnell knows all the details of what really happened! May God have mercy on your soul and all the rest of the RINO’S that sold their souls to satan!

  18. McCONNELL SHOULD HAVE NOT BEEN MAJORITY LEADER WHEN PRESIDENT TRUMP WON IN 2016, HE HAS ALWAYS BEEN A RINO, who would be BIDEN’S butt buddy and had his wife a cabinet member which is why he didn’t show how big a RINO he Is until now, he Is probably as bad a FRIEND OF THE CHINESE CCP AS BIDEN IS, SO WHEN BIDEN GETS INVESTIGATED BY THE FBI AND DOJ SHOULD LOOK INTO McCONNELL AS WELL. AND If the FBI or THE DOJ don’t continue with the INVESTIGATION ON HUNTER and his LAPTOP, THEN we will have a double standard and the COUNTRY WOULD TRULY BE A BANANA REPUBLIC.

  19. If they can impeach President Trump now that he is out of office for “ false, trumped up charges”, they can also impeach Obama, Clinton, Bush, for REAL crimes against our country! Military tribunals are in order for them, along with Piglosi, shiff, Schumer, mcConnel and others! It is only fair!

  20. I for one want a new Party!! The other two are so corrupt!! McConnel Pelosi Nadler. Sniff Romney. All of Biden’s cabinet…. WAY TO DEEP SWAMP!! NEED NEW YOUNG FRESH REPS AND SENATORS… Not the crap that is there!!!!

  21. Awaiting the new Patriot Party ! Time to be rid of all the deep state pukes ! Like Cotton and McConnell and Pence ! Be rid of the traitors and the cowards !

    1. Just another DEEP SWAMP RAT!
      Spineless RINO Republican Party DONE!!!!
      Doing what they do best
      CAVE!!!!!
      Time to walk away!!!!!

  22. Democrats have always wanted to destroy the Republicans so they can do what they want. If the Republican party gets destroyed there will be no checks and balances. Republicans need to stand up and fight for the Republicans. How can you impeach a President out of office if that Predident is not in office but he is a former President. I thought President Biden wanted everyone to work together and stop all this hated and unify the government and the American people. This will only tear America apart. If this impeachment continues then Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer or anyone can impeach other former President for something they did. Nancy Polosi and Chuck Schumer need to be impeached for inncitment of terrorizing the American people by the Antifa and Rioters. You are innocent till proven guilty. Why are Republicans guilty and have to prove they are innocent. When did this change? God help America

  23. If the Republicans vote for impeachment or even let this unconsitutional action take place, there probably will be a third party and it will draw many Republicans and some Democrats and Liberals to it but the Democrat party will win elections from now to the next generation. I read that roberts said he won’t be a party to it and the lead Jusice of the Supreme court has to preside but who knows whether he will cave and stand with the Democrats in Congress and the court.
