Graham on House Vote on Impeachment Resolution

WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham (R-South Carolina) today made this statement on the House of Representatives vote to formalize the impeachment inquiry.   

“Voting to legitimize an unfair process does not make it fair.  When it comes to President Trump, the rules seemingly always have to be different. 

“This vote legitimizes a process that denies the President:

• the right to counsel in the House Intelligence Committee, and

• makes the Republican minority subservient to the will of Adam Schiff in the House Intelligence Committee when it comes to interviewing witnesses. 

“These procedures are grossly different than what has been used in the past and extremely dangerous to the future of the Presidency.  I appreciate those who vote against this resolution and are fighting the good fight.

“Very sad and unnecessary day for America.”
