Graham Thinks Impeachment Is Only About 2020: ‘They Don’t Believe They Can Beat Him at the Ballot Box’

Senator Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) believes the House impeachment inquiry is a “nothing burger” that is only about winning the White House in 2020.

Graham has been one of President Donald Trump‘s strongest allies throughout his presidency and the impeachment calls from Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) aren’t changing that.

During an interview on Fox News with host Sean Hannity, Graham explained that he would be “very disappointed” if President Trump had been threatening to pull military aid from Ukrainian leadership if they couldn’t deliver dirt on Joe Biden. However, Graham claimed that he doesn’t believe that’s the real reason Democrats want Trump out of office.

Pelosi and her team didn’t even wait for the transcript of Trump’s conversation to be released before pulling the trigger on impeachment, a move that Graham claims prove this is just a political pursuit.

Watch Graham’s remarks below:

“Well, it tells me that they think they are going to lose at the ballot box. The only reason they are trying to impeach the president is because they don’t believe they can beat him at the ballot box so they are trying to destroy him. It comes down to this: If there is no evidence that President Trump tried to coerce the Ukrainians into investigating Biden and withholding aid to the Ukraine unless they did Trump’s bidding against Biden, then there’s nothing here. That would be the only thing that would bother me. It would be okay for the president to tell the Ukrainians, ‘Hey, if this prosecutor was fired for a corrupt purpose, maybe you should look at it.'”

Graham’s prediction about the nature of Trump’s conversation with the Ukrainian leadership seems to have been validated, as the transcripts, in his opinion, don’t show a quid pro quo conversation.

For now, it is unclear what will happen with this impeachment pursuit, but, as IJR reported earlier, most Republicans do not seem to support the measure.

What do you think?

Sen. Graham is confused about impeachment.

Back in 1999, when the investigation into a real estate deal ended up getting Clinton impeached over lying about a stained dress, Graham had very different opinions about impeachment THEN.

This is what happens with asskissers and sycophants.

How soon the left forgets…………now the shoe is on the other foot and it’s not okay with them! They are guilty of there own accusations and yet their excuses for (Steele Dossier, paid for by CLINTON and the DNC, and a illegally obtained FISA Warrant mind you) is that Trump should be investigated if he is running or going to become a President! And there wasn’t a shred of factual evidence. Now all of the sudden it’s NOT Constitutional for Biden to be investigated? With all the self admitting FACTUAL evidence????? HMMMMM!

But what has Graham done about pursuing the Biden corruption? When will they start an investigation of that real corruption?
