They are shaking in their boots…
Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) told Fox News’ Sean Hannity that he will call Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) to testify in the Senate if the House impeaches President Donald Trump.
Graham added that he would not allow a trial of President Donald Trump in the Senate based on hearsay evidence alone.
He declared that he would bar any case against the president based on hearsay alone, suggesting the prospects of a motion to dismiss. “Any resolution setting up a trial in the Senate — I’m going to make sure that hearsay cannot be the basis of an impeachment investigation,” he said.
“If you excluded hearsay, like every other court in the land, there’s nothing there,” he added. “If you invoked the hearsay rule, what would be left?” He described impeachment based on hearsay as “a threat to the presidency itself.”
Graham added that he would require that the “whistleblower” testify.
“Any trial in the Senate must expose the whistleblower so the president can confront his accuser. I will not accept a trial in the Senate until I know who the whistleblower is,” he said.
Graham also said that Congress needed to satisfy questions about the whistleblower’s potential motivations — and whether he had a role in former Vice President Joe Biden’s conflict of interest regarding his son Hunter’s board position in a corrupt Ukrainian company, Burisma.
Graham also vowed that House Intelligence Committee chair Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) would be called to testify
“One of the witnesses will be Adam Schiff because if he, in fact, did meet with the whistleblower, and coached the guy up, I think that’s relevant to the impeachment inquiry itself,” Graham said.
Schiff denied having met the whistleblower, and denied knowing the whistleblower’s identity but he was not under oath.
