(AmericanProsperity.com) – As former President Donald Trump’s controversial impeachment trial draws near, Senate Republicans continue to push back against the overwhelmingly-partisan decision to move forward with the trial. Many senators, including Lindsey Graham (R-SC), have voiced their opinions and potential strategy if the trial drags on.
On Monday, February 1, Graham spoke with Fox News about the impending impeachment trial. He told listeners just what would happen if Democrats decided to call any witnesses during the proceedings, as seen in the clip below:

In addition, Graham gave insight into Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell’s (R-KY) views on the trial, which have been kept quiet in recent weeks. Graham said that during a meeting with McConnell, the leader stated he was “offended by the process in the House.”
If Democrats open the “can of worms” of witnesses at the impeachment trial, the GOP will counter their move by bringing in the FBI, who will detail just who “pre-planned” the attack on the Capitol and how security measures faltered. Hopefully, our lawmakers don’t waste too much precious time on this charade while Americans continue to struggle with the COVID-19 pandemic.
