Lindsey Graham Suggests Senate Republicans Will Take Down Impeachment Quickly “End This.”

It now looks as though House Democrats are actually going to go through with impeachment.

It doesn’t matter that it’s all based on garbage and is purely political, they don’t care. Their base demands this so they think they have to deliver.

Republicans in the Senate however, are not going to give it any more oxygen than they have to before killing it.

‘End this’: Republicans poised to call no witnesses during Trump impeachment trial in Senate

Senate Republicans do not expect to call witnesses President Trump might want to hear from most in an impeachment trial, conceding there are not the votes to summon key figures such as Hunter Biden and the unidentified government whistleblower whose complaint sparked the process.

Senate impeachment rules require a majority vote to call witnesses, and with just two out of 53 votes to spare, there is no “appetite” among Republicans to pursue testimony from people that Democrats blocked Republicans from subpoenaing during the House investigation. Indeed, Republicans might forgo calling witnesses altogether, saying minds are made up on Trump’s guilt or innocence and that testimony at trial on the Senate floor would draw out the proceedings unnecessarily.

“Here’s what I want to avoid: this thing going on longer than it needs to,” Sen. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina told the Washington Examiner. “I want to end this.”

Top Republicans are leaning toward calling for a vote to acquit Trump immediately after House Democrats and the White House have delivered their arguments to head off partisan disagreements that might lengthen the trial.

Graham has been very vocal about all of this on Twitter:

Democrats are going to end up regretting this.

Just watch.
