Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) called in to the Brian Kilmeade Show to discuss Sen. Mitt Romney’s (R-UT) vote to convict President Trump for abuse of power in his Senate impeachment trial. Responding to Sen. Romney’s assertion that he was abiding by the oath that he swore to God, Sen. Graham said, “All I can tell you is that God gave us free will and common sense. I used the common sense God gave me to understand this was a bunch of B.S.”
“[Impeachment] was politically driven, it was driven by people who are not looking for the truth, they hate Trump, they were gonna impeach him the day he got elected and if you can’t see through this, you know, your religion is clouding your thinking here. When I go to meet God at the pearly gates I don’t think he’s going to ask me, ‘Why didn’t you convict Trump?’ I may be wrong but I don’t think that’s gonna be at the top of the list,” Sen. Graham continued.
The South Carolina Senator also weighed in on Speaker Nancy Pelosi tearing up President Trump’s speech at the conclusion of his State of the Union Address on Tuesday night. When asked to rank the incident in terms of the most bizarre things he’s seen, Sen. Graham said, “It’s tied for first, I’m just leaving some room for what might come so I’m just going to call it a tie… It was a political decision to impress the most radical people in the country at the expense of the democratic party as a whole. The problem is you can’t rip or destroy the accomplishments of the president. The speech can be torn apart, the accomplishments are there for all to see.”
