Graham Pokes Fun at Pelosi’s Predicament as Dems Push Impeachment: ‘She Knows’ It’s ‘Political Suicide’

South Carolina Senator Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) poked fun at Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) as she finds herself caught in a growing impeachment impasse with her own party.

Joining host Chris Wallace on “Fox News Sunday,” Graham joked that Pelosi was “riding a bucking wild bronco called the Democratic Caucus” as she pushes back on the increasing calls for impeachment from members of her party and pointed out that “70 percent” of Democrats “want Trump impeached.”

“She knows that impeachment would be political suicide because there’s no reason to impeach the president. So she’s trying to keep the party intact, and if she goes down the impeachment road, Republicans take back the House, we keep the Senate, President Trump gets re-elected.”

“But her job is very much at risk,” added the South Carolina Republican.

Watch the video here:

 

Graham continued on in the interview to blast the Democrats’ “political revenge” against Trump, saying that if he were in the president’s shoes, he’d “fight back.”

He also lauded Special Counsel Robert Mueller as a “voice” that Congress “trusted to be fair” before continuing his lambasting of the House Democrats, saying that he does not “trust [them] to be fair” and that they are “trying to re-do the Mueller report.”

“And at the end of the day,” added Graham. “It would be political suicide for them to impeach.”

Watch the clip here:

Graham’s comments come as Pelosi is facing mounting calls for Trump’s impeachment from members of the Democratic Party she leads as she pushes for more investigative approaches. Prominent conservatives have been quick to point out that Pelosi seems to be losing control of her party.

As IJR Red previously reported, White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders torched the speaker as having “lost control” of the House Democrats and that “the far-left wing” was “telling her what to do.”

Additionally, IJR Red also noted that former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich weighed in on the issue, proclaiming that the Democratic “base is so hungry to take on Trump that they would just run over [Pelosi] if she said ‘no.'”

Not impeaching Trump would be Constitutional suicide, as it would establish the precedent that the President can stonewall oversight by Congress. Donald J. Trump is not a bloodthirsty tyrant. His successor or two might be one. Pelosi needs to investigate and publicise the crimes, corruption, and incompetetence of Trump, to where even Senate Republicans support removing him from office.

Always trying to read SanFranNan’s scat, I think it is quite telling that lately, as she moves toward that bank of microphones, her walk-up music is “Tiger By the Tail.”

Turn ALL blue stats RED. One can see by watching the antics of Congress, Democrats can NOT be trusted. They haven’t done their job yet want to be paid for fighting with Trump.

I say keep pushing it Democraps. If fact get rid of Pelosi and put the wet back Ocrazy-Cortez in the leadership. That will insure the destruction of the Democrap/Socialist Party.

330 Million Americans. No two brains Think exactly alike. Be it Dem. or Rep. yet the Republicans seem to forget that they did multiple years of investigation on just one or two alleged infractions. They for their own nefarious reasons are turning a blind eye to the Dozens of nefarious infractions trump and his band of Dishonest Cabinet and followers are committing on a daily basis. The Mueller report did Not Exonerate trump. It states the facts. Congresses responsibility is to Investigate fully, and hold wrong doing accountable. Obstruction and Stonewalling is trumps agenda. He is Guilty of an attempted… Read more »

How foolish of the Dumocraps, but it sure helps the Republicans win. They have done nothing in two and a half years but buck every single thing Trump has tried to do for this Country and the honest Americans, true Patriots! They are such an embarrassment. Trump is full of surprises and he is no politician, but he has always had one goal in mind, Make America Great Again, Trump 2020! brought to you by the Dumocraps.

Let the angry Dems either ride that horse or get off. They should be all-in if they truly want transparency. Let the chips fall where they may.
