Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) appeared on Fox News Sunday morning and blasted House Democrats in general and Rep. Adam Schiff (D-NY) in particular. Graham, who serves as Chair of the Senate Judiciary Committee, also shared his intention to end the impeachment trial “as quickly as I can for the good of the country.”

To that end, Graham states that he has no intention of calling as a witness either the “whistleblower” or Schiff (or the Bidens). He says that he doesn’t want to give the “joke of a process” House impeachment “any more credibility than it deserves.”

“This is a joke of a process. It’s dangerous for the country.”

Graham - Host - Maria - Bartiromo - Short

Graham told host Maria Bartiromo he would stop short of calling Schiff to testify before the Senate Judiciary Committee in an impeachment trial against President Donald Trump, however.

“I’m not going to participate in things I think are going to destroy the country – I am not going to call a bunch of House Members as a part of oversight,” Graham, the Senate Judiciary chairman, said.

Senate - Circus - Schiff - Separation - Powers

“We’re not going to turn the Senate into a circus. And I would tell Schiff, ‘what you’re doing is very dangerous for separation of powers here.'”

Graham said that instead of turning the Senate into a circus, he will refer House Democrats’ abuse of power to congressional oversight.
