Lindsey Graham Attacks, Then Protects Bidens – Will Oppose Any Attempts To Call As Impeachment Witnesses

Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) spent a good portion of Thursday and Friday theatrically railing against the Bidens and their relationships in Ukraine – only to staunchly oppose any efforts to call them as impeachment witnesses during the ongoing Senate trial of President Trump, stating “this needs to end.”

I don’t want to call Hunter Biden. I don’t want to call Joe Biden. I want someone to look at this when this is done,” said Graham, adding “To my Republican friends, you may be upset about what happened in the Ukraine with the Bidens but this is not the venue to litigate that.

“I don’t think it’s wrong for us to look at the Biden connection in the Ukraine, the $3 million given to the vice president’s son by the most corrupt company in the Ukraine,” he said, adding “To my Republican friends, you may be upset about what happened in the Ukraine with the Bidens but this is not the venue to litigate that.”

“I feel pretty confident, though I don’t know it for a fact, that the defense team is going to want to call its witnesses, including but not limited to the Bidens, [and] as a fact witness the whistleblower,” said Sen. John Kennedy (R-LA).

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY), meanwhile, has left the door open to calling the Bidens to appear, saying “When you get to that issue, I can’t imagine that only the witnesses that our Democratic colleagues would want to call would be called.”
