Lindsey Graham Predicts ‘Not Guilty’ Impeachment Votes Are Growing After ‘Absurd’ Arguments From Democrats

Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) went on Fox News on Wednesday night to tell host Sean Hannity that he believes that “not guilty” votes are growing in former President Donald Trump’s Senate impeachment trial.

Graham went on to explain that this was due to House impeachment managers floating the “absurd” conspiracy theory that the riots were planned by Trump.

He then accused Democrats of failing to investigate their impeachment claims thoroughly enough before moving forward with it, which is why their “incitement claim is falling apart, and they’ve had to come up with a new “cockamamie” theory.

Graham Says ‘Not Guilty’ Votes Are Growing

“Let me tell your viewers: the “not guilty” vote is growing after today,” Graham said. “I think most Republicans found the presentation by the House managers offensive and absurd.”

After admitting what happened at the Capitol was terrible, Graham went on to say, “I don’t remember any of the House managers saying a damn thing when they were trying to break into my house and going after [Republican Senator] Susan Collins [of Maine] and spitting on all of us.”

“If this is a problem for a politician to give the speech that President Trump did, well, then [Vice President] Kamala Harris has a real problem, because she actively engaged in bailing out rioters,” he added.

“And here is what I would suggest. if you are a politician trying to raise bail for people accused of rioting, you are inciting more riots,” the Senator said.

Graham Says Impeachment Argument Has Fallen Apart

Graham went on to discuss just how much Democrats’ impeachment argument has fallen apart.

“If there was preplanning, there was no incitement,” he said.

“The managers have got this cockamamie idea absurd theory that Donald Trump was monitoring the Proud Boys’ website, and other far right websites, and that he and [former White House social media manager] Dan Scavino knew this was going to happen and they encouraged it,” Graham continued. “That is Looney Tunes.”

“And you know why they are saying that? Because if the president didn’t know, and it was actually preplanned, he is not guilty,” Graham added.

“So for the first time today, they are trying to create a storyline that Donald Trump was in on it before it happened, that he was monitoring the proud boys and other crazy websites and he knew they were come to Washington with violence on their mind, and he encouraged it,” he said.

“That beyond bizarre,” Graham continued. “This is not evidence. This is a liberal democratic novel being presented as evidence.”

Graham Wants To Know What Pelosi Knew

After saying that he would like to know how much Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) knew about the riots in advance, Graham concluded by saying, “This is why you don’t want to have snap impeachments. Evidence really does matter.”
