Graham Stuns Conservatives: We Don’t Have the Votes

What?!

From the very outset, Senator Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) has been adamant that he wanted a quick dismissal of the charges.

On Sunday morning, Graham stunned Trump supporters by admitting the Republican-led Senate does not have the votes to move for immediate dismissal.

Graham stated, “Yeah that’s dead for practical purposes.

“The idea of dismissing the case early on is not going to happen; we don’t have the votes for that.”

Still a Quick Trial

While Republicans may not have the votes to get the charges dismissed right out of the gate, Graham is still very optimistic that when the dust settles, Trump will be acquitted.

Not only that, earlier in the week Graham predicted a bipartisan acquittal, which would just be devastating for Democrats.

The only real question now is if there will or will not be witnesses called.

Senator Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) has been pleading with Majority Leader McConnell (R-KY) to call witnesses, but McConnell has not given in on that request yet.

There is also the question that even if witnesses are allowed, if Trump will invoke executive privilege considering the sensitive nature of the most likely witnesses to be called, such as John Bolton, Trump’s former National Security Adviser.

Graham seems to believe this trial will be over before Trump’s scheduled State of the Union at the beginning of February.

There have also been rumors that McConnell is considering doubling the mandatory six-hour session to hold 12-hour sessions, at least through opening arguments, to move the trial along much quicker.

The Hunter Biden Issue

Because the Bidens are at the center of the accusations made against Trump, more than a few Republicans would like to get both Hunter and Joe Biden on the stand.

Graham, however, would like to leave that for its own investigation rather than skim the surface during the impeachment.

It sounds more like Graham is hoping to convene a special investigator to look into this rather than leaving it in the hands of a senate committee.

The circus starts this week, patriots, so dig in, because we are assured of sparks flying as the Democrats make their last pitch to remove Trump from office.

  1. Lindsey, care to know who does have the votes? Every damn living veteran who has put up with one incompetent president after another since 1941. Donald Trump is first truly qualified Battle Captain to counter every damn worthless politician who has sat in the White House, in Congress, and/or in uniform. Those of us who have survived countless fiascos only because America has had more crap and bodies to throw at our adversaries. Yes, that is right we have never won a victory through superior leadership, we have won only through superior logistics! Part of me hopes you politicians just try to replace Donald Trump. Think General Patton may have it right. I think a 77 year old soldier might just think meeting the bullet with his name on it in the fight to rid the nation of all the worthless politicians, bureaucrats, and media types would be a great way to go out!

    1. Well you got to change rino voters in Romney’s district in Utah and Alaskan voters in Murkowski’s , and voters who support progressive Collins.

  3. Now the general public will have their say also if the trial is not open and fair meeting the requirements by haveing any and all witnesses that have relevant information about the charges made against Trump. Now executive privilege has never worked on any other President brought up on Impeachment charges and the SCOTUS could convein immediately to hear the case they did before nd made a decision in less than 48 hours.

    1. They will be afforded the same amount of time and ability to ask questions as the Republicans were in the house inquiry circus.

  4. Trust me w/team Trump & all points leading to a huge “W” for “r” POTUS”,not only will he be acquitted but in November,He’ll waltz over finish line choking the “DUMMO’S once & for all!

  5. We Conservative Patriots have to stand up and fight to Drain the Swamp too, and it isn’t just corrupt Democrats, Elites, and Judges, that have to go–it’s also the RINOs that have used the Party to hide their corruption for decades. We have to join President Trump in his battle to save our country and Constitution from the Progressives and Socialists that are the major threat to the freedom that our Founding Fathers made possible. When President Trump has been acquitted of all Impeachment charges by the Senate, his legal representatives must remove the stain of Impeachment placed there by hateful Nancy Pelosi and her puppets in the House of Representatives. We cannot let that remain on the legacy of the greatest President that America has ever had.

  6. WE THE TRUE AMERICAN PATRIOTS have got to RISE up and help OUR President. Because “THE SWAMP & DEEP STATE” not only consists of Demorats; but also Republicans. We have seen so many Republicans sell their souls just to put more money in their pockets. Remember Paul Ryan.

    When Obama was President; he took Ryan’s soul. He cane out with the black mustache & the beard along with it. And all of a sudden he was talking trash about OUR President & praising Obama. But when Obama got through using him; Paul Ryan is now a nobody.

    And let’s look at the younger George Bush and his family. Many people (myself & family included) thought they were wonderful people. But look at them now. The majority of people DEFINITELY don’t think that anymore. They showed their TRUE colors when poor ole Jeb got man-handled on the debate stage.

    They ALL started loving on Obama. But that didn’t last too long. Obama & Michelle didn’t give a crap about them once they got in the White House. And I’ll mention ONE more sorry Republican that should go ahead & switch over to the Democratic Party. And that’s Mitt Romney. He NEEDS to be gone from the Republican list.

    There are MANY more. We do have OUR work cut out for us; but we have to ALL bond together in every state of OUR country & start putting some regular people into every single branch of government we have. But the so-called “SQUAD” need to be VOTED out or IMPEACHED immediately.

    These women are “TERRORIST” supporters. That’s a known fact. Obama made the statement that OUR country would be taken over from WITHIN. Wake up people. He was speaking of the Muslims. He let the Muslim Brotherhood come & go as they pleased while he was in the White House.

    “GOD PLEASE HELP US FIGHT THE GOOD FIGHT. AND PLEASE PROTECT OUR PRESIDENT & HIS FAMILY; ALONG WITH YOUR PEOPLE & OUR WONDERFUL COUNTRY” AMEN. ????????????????????????✝️✝️✝️
