Graham on Impeachment: 'I'm Not Going to Pretend to Be a Fair Juror'

The full House of Representatives is expected to vote on – and pass – articles of impeachment later this week. At that point, the House will have to make their case for impeachment in front of the Senate, something that is unlikely to pass the Republican-led chamber.

According to Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham (R-SC), not only does he want the trial to be speedy, but he doesn't want to call witnesses or hear from anyone else. He wants the House to make their case based solely on the so-called "evidence" they uncovered during their investigations, which were led by House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff. Interestingly enough, Graham admitted that he is not going to pretend to be an unbiased juror. 

"This thing will come to the Senate, and it will die quickly, and I will do everything I can to make it die quickly," the Chairman said Saturday during an interview with CNN International's Becky Anderson at the Doha Forum in Qatar. "I am trying to give a pretty clear signal I have made up my mind. I'm not trying to pretend to be a fair juror here. What I see coming, happening today is just a partisan nonsense."

Graham reminded Democrats of one important tidbit: if they don't like the job President Trump is doing, they can vote for someone else in a little less than a year. 

"If you don't like President Trump, you can vote against him in less than a year. It's not like a politician is unaccountable if you don't impeach them," Graham explained. "So I think impeachment is going to end quickly in the Senate. I would prefer it to end as quickly as possible."
