During an interview with “Fox & Friends” on Friday, Senator Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) slammed suggestions that President Donald Trump is trying to cover up criminal behavior.
As IJR Blue previously reported, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi accused the president of a “cover-up” ahead of a meeting on infrastructure. Graham slammed the suggestion, claiming that Pelosi is being pressured by her party to push the impeachment narrative.
“What’s unavoidable is that she’s gonna lose her job if she doesn’t embrace impeachment because the people she’s in charge of have lost their mind when it comes to Trump,” said Graham.
He also pointed out how extensive the Mueller report was and examples of Trump’s staff testifying for hours.
“A cover-up, remember Bob Mueller? Remember that guy?” said Graham. “The guy that everybody trusted, he’ll be fair to the country, he’ll be fair to the president. You’ve got 400 and something pages … Trump gave 1.4 million documents to the special counsel. His attorney White House counsel testified for 30 hours, his chief of staff went to testify in front of Mueller.”
He supported the president, claiming that Trump defending himself was not wrong and Democrats should stop using the Mueller report to support impeachment if they don’t want Trump to be reelected.
“What did Donald Trump cover up regarding Mueller? Nothing,” Graham said. “Now, if he’s fighting back against a bunch of crazy people trying to destroy his life, that is not covering anything up. The House Judiciary Committee is trying to retry the Mueller case. Mueller, to me, was the final word.”
As IJR Red reported, many Democrats are pushing for impeachment, while Pelosi is still attempting to stop them from moving forward. Graham claimed that this is the real cover-up, especially with it happening during the start of the 2020 election cycle.
“Here’s what I would see as being covered up — the division in the Democratic party,” said Graham.
