Graham gives Pelosi ultimatum, proposes Senate rule change to remove her from impeachment process

Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., insisted Sunday that if House Speaker Nancy Pelosi does not deliver articles of impeachment against President Trump to the Senate by the end of the week, the Senate should “take matters in our own hands.”

Graham accused Pelosi of playing political games and trying to exert control over the Senate trial by keeping it from starting. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., recognized Friday on the Senate floor the chamber’s rules prevented him from doing anything until Pelosi does her part, but Graham proposed a solution that could remove what McConnell has called an “impasse” in the process.

“What I would do, if she continues to refuse to send the articles as required by the Constitution, I would work with Senator McConnell to change the rules of the Senate so we could start the trial without her, if necessary,” Graham proposed on “Sunday Morning Futures.”

When asked how long he would wait before taking this step, Graham replied, “Days, not weeks.”

    Good for you, Senator Graham! That old hag should be removed from impeachment process. The House has done its job in this farce. Now the Senate should take charge of the process and clear the President of all charges.
