Donald Trump has been acting as if he has already been acquitted from his criminal activities. The Republicans only forced a no vote to exclude all witnesses and documentary evidence-making theirs a non-trial trial. It should not take long for America to see what an unleashed POTUS looks like. Unfortunately, it will not be pretty.
The GOP waited until that first straight party-line vote was over to launch their attack. Then, they came out to open up their own investigations. Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) gave a heads-up warning that the Senate Intelligence Committee planned on calling the whistleblower and outing him or her. That struck a death knell for those who understood how much this will rain dire threats down on the whistleblower’s head.
The Foreign Relations Committee also planned an investigation into another of Trump’s top 2020 candidates, former Vice President Joe Biden. Graham said to Fox News’ Sunday Morning Futures:
‘The Senate Intel committee under Richard Burr has told us that we will call the whistleblower. Why is it important? I want to know how all this crap started.’
Then, the South Carolina senator went on:
‘If the whistleblower is a former employee of, associate of, Joe Biden, I think that would be important. If the whistleblower was working with people on Schiff’s staff that wanted to take Trump down a year and a half ago, I think that would be important. If the Schiff staff people helped write the complaint, that would be important. We’re going to get to the bottom of all of this to make sure this never happens again.’
The tweet began attacking:
Next, Graham said:
‘I’m gonna bring in State Department officials and ask them, ‘Why didn’t you do something about the obvious conflict of interest Joe Biden had? Biden’s effort to combat corruption in the Ukraine became a joke.’
The Senate Judiciary Committee chair Graham said:
‘I can prove beyond any doubt that Joe Biden’s effort in the Ukraine to root out corruption was undercut because he let his son sit on the board of the most corrupt company in the Ukraine and we’re not gonna give him a pass on that.’
Graham summed his speech up with:
‘Senate Intel will deal with the whistleblower, Foreign Relations committee will deal with Joe Biden’s conflict of interest, the Judiciary Committee will deal with all things FISA.’
A number of people in the unique poll knew they were talking about POTUS. Graham came to the forefront with his assurances in his honey-combed voice. Regardless of the Republican senator’s strong words, he did not have unity in his own party. He noted that’they had no plans to force the party’s traditional pathway:
“Let me tell Republicans out there. You should expect us to do this. If we don’t do it, we’re letting you down., I guarantee you …. if the shoe were on the other foot, Democrats would be eating us alive if Republicans had done any of these things.’
