This is potentially good news.
According to Senator Lindsey Graham, the impeachment trial in the Senate may be over by the end of this week. Graham said this during an appearance on FOX News on Tuesday night.
From FOX News:
Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., said Tuesday that former National Security Adviser John Bolton has “kind of thrown the country into a ditch” after The New York Times reported on allegations made by Bolton against President Trump in the manuscript of Bolton’s forthcoming book.
“So, John, you’ve kind of thrown the country into a ditch here. Just come forward and say what’s on your mind. Hold a news conference and we’ll consider what you’ve got to say if you think is that important,” Graham said on “The Story with Martha MacCallum.” “But from my point of view, I’ve got all the evidence I need. The only reason we’re in this box is because the House chose not to pursue John Bolton’s testimony because that meant they couldn’t impeach the president before the election or before Christmas.”
“So I just think this, to me, needs to end,” Graham added. “It needs to end now.”
Graham said he was optimistic that the Senate would vote to bring the impeachment trial to an end on Friday and called the case brought by Democratic impeachment managers “the weakest case you’ll ever see in the history of the country.”
“It was a partisan vote in the House. And what’s happened? The president will be acquitted,” Graham said. “And I think it will be this week. But you’ve unleashed the forces of partisan Capitol Hill on future presidents if we legitimize this.”

Graham repeated his prediction on Twitter:
I’m increasingly optimistic this ends Friday. …The defense team destroyed the House case.
