Pelosi’s Impeachment Sham Just Backfired…

Although a few Republicans who never supported former President Trump sided with the Democrats in their effort to impeach the former president, it appears that most of the GOP actually oppose the idea.

During an interview on Fox News, Senator Lindsey Graham revealed that many Senate Democrats are against the effort pushed by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi because they know there will be political consequences.

“There’s more than a handful of Democrats praying that [President] Joe Biden will get on the phone and call [Senate Democratic Leader Chuck] Schumer and say it’s over because they understand this is going to blow up in their face politically,” he said.

The South Carolina Republican insisted that his party is mostly united as they go against the impeachment effort.

Following a recent meeting with the GOP leaders, Graham declared that he had “never felt better about the Republican Senate conference being united behind the idea that what the House did was wrong in terms of process.”

Although Graham had initially distanced himself from Trump in the aftermath of the riot, he has since been vocal that he opposes the impeachment effort.



“The second impeachment of Donald Trump is not wearing well over time,” he said. “Democrats are in a box. They started this thing in the House, and they impeached the president of the United States in Nancy Pelosi’s House in less than 50 hours from bringing it up to a conclusion, without a lawyer, not one witness was called.”

Graham predicted that as a result, the Senate would “have an overwhelmingly Republican vote that this second impeachment of Donald Trump is unconstitutional.”

McConnell has not decided how he will vote in the upcoming Senate impeachment trial, stating in a letter earlier this month that he intends to “listen to the legal arguments when they are presented to the Senate.”

“I don’t agree with him,” Graham said of McConnell’s remarks. “That would be a crime, to provoke somebody, to incite them to violence. Show me the clip where he did that.”



“We impeach the president today without any evidence. It’s just sheer hatred. If this becomes the norm, be careful what you wish for today. Under this theory, the radical left — if you can impeach a president after they’re out of office, why don’t we impeach George Washington? He owned slaves. Where does this stop?” he said.

He added: “So, to my Republican colleagues, let’s stand firm for the idea — whether you like Donald Trump or not, he’s not above the law.”

“If he did something wrong, you know, you can face the consequences of the law,” Graham continued.

“Impeachment is political. What we’re doing here is we’re impeaching the president without any evidence, without any witnesses, and we’re going to have a trial after they are out of office. How do you survive as a president in the future? This will be an attack on the presidency in perpetuity. Should we impeach Barack Obama because, for 24 hours, he never lifted a finger to help those people under siege in Benghazi? Where does this stop?” he said.

The Aristocrat Democratic Members and their Blind, Arrogantly Ignorant and Illegally Labeled FAKE Conservative Repub. Followers are Rich And Power Hungry Elitist Anti-Americans, who love to twist The words of The US Constitution just to Advance Their Anti-US Constitutional Agenda, which is ILLEGAL in The United States Of America! This means that the Members Of The US Government named above, would love to have The Untied States Of America instead of being The United States Of America!

Neither Congress nor the Pentagon can prevent ALL FIFTY GOVERNORS calling THEIR NATIONAL GUARD TROOPS HOME.

There is NO NATIONAL EMERGENCY, and NO PROVABLE THREAT to the Nations Capitol.

US MILITARY CANNOT BE USED ON US SOIL!

Dismantle the fences and barricades, go home and watch the coup dissolve out of DEAR OF THE PEOPLE!

The NATIONAL GUARD are NOT Police.

It is Constitutionally wrong to impeach someone who is no longer the president. But, then again, the Democrats and Socialists are trying to destroy the Constitution in order to turn this nation into a Marxist one. They strike with fake news and then censorship. Then the process continues from there to strip Americans of their rights. People need to wake up before they end up sitting in concentration camps.

impeach Obama for his crimes, and Biden for miss use of power, and Nancy jail her ass for stocks-like Martha, and AOC and the list goes on and on,

I am a lawyer and I know there are statutes and case law which support the prosecution of Pelosi and her entourage of thugs & racketeers for the intentionally fraudulent impeachment of Pres. Trump for the phony “Russiagate” scam,
Pelosi & Obama and their mafia, (including the Biden Crime Family can be prosecuted by a citizen prosecutor for hundreds of felonies committed by Pelosi & her rag tag bunch of entourage thugs known as “Pelosi’s Pooper Scoopers”
She can be criminally charged without the participation of the communist controlled FBI led by Christine Wray, Comey’s Hooker “Girlfriend”.
BY DEFINITION PRES TRUMP DID NOT INCITE A RIOT AT THE CAPITOL AND THE VIOLENCE WAS THE RESULT OF PARTICIPATION BY BLM, ANTIFA, & IGNORANT PUNKS CALLED THE ‘PROUD boys’.
It is time for a military takeover of this country to stop the complete destruction of what many men & women have given their lives for since 1776.
Stand with Pres Trump to save the RAPE & ROBBERY OF THIS LAND BY COMMUNIST CHINA LLED BY THE CHIEF COMMUNIST, OBAMA “HISSELF”
AMERICANS GROW SOME BALLS & REMEMBER THE BATTLE OF THE BULGE, OKINAWA & IWO JIMA, KESAHN & THE BATTLE BY THE 7TH CAVALRY
AND BEN GHAZI,,,,,,,,,,JUST GROW SOME BALLS & .STEP UP TO THE PLATE

oh there are consequences coming alright from the first second the demoncrats conspired to steal the election. we’re going to have fun storming the castles.

BUzzzzz

One of the Republicans in the Senate who voted to acquit should ask Nancy “The Baltimore Mafia Queen” Pelosi why she reused security support for the Jan 6th event. Could it be she wanted the riots to occur to make Trump look like the villian? My money is on YES. Now she’s screaming at those Senators when it’s her fault and only her fault. There would have been no riots, no deaths, no injuries whatsoever had she accepted more security from the Guard. Fry in hell you pathetic b*tch!
