Lindsey Graham just made his move and signaled to Nancy Pelosi that the game is up. He told Fox News last night that no Republican Senators will vote to impeach.
Not even Mitt Romney. He added that Trump didn’t do anything wrong and said the phone call was fine. Look, this is going to come down to one set of bureaucrats against another set of bureaucrats.
All unelected. Some are saying what Trump did is a crime and put our national security at risk while others say what Trump did was fine and happens all the time in diplomacy.
In short, this is what happens in third world countries not America. We don’t listen to bureaucrats we listen to the voters.
To that aim, Graham checkmated Pelosi and demanded the Senate open investigations into the Bidens. What will happen then is we will have dueling political investigations with dueling bureaucrats telling tales.
From The Hill:
Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) is calling for the Senate Foreign Relations Committee to probe ties between the Bidens and Ukraine, including calling State Department officials.
“We need to look at whether or not Hunter Biden corruptly engaged in lobbying. Did Joe Biden ask the prosecutor to be fired because he was investigating his son?” Graham asked during an interview on Monday with Fox News’s Laura Ingraham.
He added that he hoped Senate Foreign Relations Committee Chairman Jim Risch (R-Idaho) “will open up an investigation about the role of the State Department in all this.”
Spokespeople for Risch didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment.
President Trump and his allies have latched onto Biden’s connection to Ukraine as the former vice president seeks the Democratic nomination to challenge Trump in 2020.
Joe Biden pushed in 2016 for the dismissal of a Ukrainian prosecutor who had been accused of overlooking corruption in his own office. There’s no indication Joe Biden was acting with his son’s interests in mind, and the former vice president has denied doing so.
