Graham Hands an Ultimatum Down to Pelosi

2

On Sunday, Senator Lindsey Graham handed down an ultimatum to Speaker Nancy Pelosi. He explained that if Nancy Pelosi doesn’t send the articles of impeachment to the Senate by the end of the week, the Senate will “take matters in our own hands.”

The South Carolina Republican said Pelosi is playing political games and trying to exert control over the Senate trial by keeping it from starting. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky said on the floor of the Senate that the rules of the Senate prevent him from doing anything about the impeachment.

Graham proposed a solution — change the rules.

“What I would do, if she continues to refuse to send the articles as required by the Constitution, I would work with Senator McConnell to change the rules of the Senate so we could start the trial without her, if necessary,” Graham said.

He told the host, Maria Bartiromo, that he would give it days, not weeks.

Senator Graham said the impeachment is “dangerous” to the presidency. Pelosi is trying to extort the Senate and the President. He thinks they are failing to send them because they are so weak.

  1. There goes Loudmouth Lindsey again, showboating with his fake outrage act. Hawley, a real senator, a real leader, and a real Trump supporter, already submitted a resolution, while Lindsey was hunting down cameras.

    Graham has no role in the decision making of senate leadership, He is privately considered a joke.

    A decent leader, an honest person of courage, in the role of chair of judiciary, in the interest of justice, and of protecting the president of his own party, would have long ago conducted hearings to expose the real scandals and exonerate Trump. Instead, Lindsey did nothing except make fake promises, and now he wants to capitalize off of the mess he helped cause.

    Maria’s style encourages this tabloid/gossip news coverage.

  2. I’m not sure what it is, but I think Senator McConnell has a plan if the articles of impeachment doesn’t get delivered in what he thinks is a reasonable time frame. Graham has a vote and a voice, but not a lot of say so.
