Senate GOP doesn’t ’have the votes’ to dismiss impeachment trial, says Graham

Senate Judiciary Chairman Lindsey Graham conceded on Sunday that there is not a majority in the Senate to quickly dismiss the impeachment trial of President Trump. ’There are a lot of senators who I think will wind up acquitting the president but believe we need to hear the House’s case (and) the president’s case’, Graham said. The impeachment trial is set to begin Tuesday in the Senate.

'And soon, we won't have the votes to stop witnesses being called either'

Isn't that what Trump wants? A trial so they can drag out Biden's dirty laundry while trying to "find the truth"?

This is why I despise the Republicans. They are spineless, testicleless, and utterly without a desire to fight for what they claim to believe.

Flimsy Lindsey. As he said he has to stay relevant. Even when it means selling the constitution and the American people. Total corroboration and literally mountains of evidence from anyone involved that trump hasn’t blocked from testifying or providing documents.

Should tell u something... Don't be shocked if some vote yes to convict on article of abuse of power... Won't be many but some will... N if dear leader tries shaming any of them during the trial he could find more defections... To remove either article that reaches a sixty one vote count to convict removes him... I doubt that will happen but see if he thinks he can f with em via Twitter or some rally during the trial n they don't buzz back on him... Watch Ben sasse.. Grassley... Not just the ones press tells u too.....all depends on house managers present.. N wh counsel defends...
