VIDEO: Lindsey Graham Says He’s Not Watching Impeachment Hearings. ‘This Couldn’t Happen In A Parking Ticket Case.’

On Tuesday evening, Sen. Lindsey Graham made an appearance on Sean Hannity’s Fox News program to chit-chat about the impeachment hearings that kicked off on Wednesday, where he stated that he wouldn’t be watching the hearings because the whole thing is a “threat to the presidency; I don’t want to legitimize it; it’s un-American; it denies the basics of due process.”

Here’s more from The Daily Wire:

Graham asserted, “To every American who’s going to watch tomorrow: this could not happen in your case. This couldn’t happen in a parking ticket case. This couldn’t happen in any civil matter in America because due process requires the ability of every American to call witnesses on their behalf — except for President Trump.”

Hannity started the exchange by noting that Graham had said if there were no due process in the impeachment inquiry, the issue would be dead in the Senate.

Graham answered, “I think there’d be a danger to the presidency in the future for us to legitimize what’s going on in the House. There’s no civil proceeding in America, no criminal proceeding in America that denies a person to tell their side of the story by calling witnesses except in the House. And every American deserves the right to confront their accuser. That’s not being done in this case. So I don’t want to legitimize this because it’s a threat to the presidency.”

Graham continued on saying, “Then there’s the allegation. The allegation is that Donald J. Trump withheld aid to Ukraine unless the Ukrainian government investigated Joe Biden and Hunter Biden for corruption. The problem with the allegation is that it’s not true. The aid was delivered to the Ukrainian government and there was no investigation of Joe Biden and Hunter Biden.”

“How long does it take to dispose of that?” Graham said.

Hannity went on to speak about how all of the benefits that were given to former President Bill Clinton during his impeachment have been denied Trump.

“Every consideration that was given Bill Clinton, Bill Clinton’s lawyers, the minority party, are all denied here because at the end of the paragraph it all says the same thing, it goes, “Yeah, at the discretion of the chairman.” He said he wanted a whistleblower; Republicans gave a list. They said no to every Republican witness and now they’re cherry-picking the two witnesses that they think will be the most favorable to them and ignoring all the ones that destroyed their narrative. Who in the Senate, what committee in the Senate could call witnesses and investigate Hunter and Joe because I identify the laws I believe Joe Biden broke?”

“Well, the allegation against Hunter Biden is that he had a conflict of interest serving on the board and that Joe Biden weighed in to have the prosecutor fired because he’s getting close to his son, Their State Department activity talking about the conflict of interest, and there is a reasonable investigation to be done here. The Foreign Relations committee has jurisdiction over the State Department, but let me get back to the point you just made: What’s happening the the House is basically un-American. No American, including Donald Trump, should be accused of misdeeds without confronting their accuser, which is the whistleblower, and no American should be denied the capacity to tell their side of the story by calling witnesses to explain their defense,” Graham responded.

“That’s being denied the president of the United States. To every American who’s going to watch tomorrow: this could not happen in your case. This couldn’t happen in a parking ticket case. This couldn’t happen in any civil matter in America because due process requires the ability of every American to call witnesses on their behalf — except for President Trump.”

Marco Rubio Gets Confronted By MSNBC Host Over Saying Some Journalists ‘Giddy’ Over COVID-19

Published

Sen. Marco Rubio has found himself in the hot seat with MSNBC host Stephanie Ruhle after making the comment that some journalists are thrilled over the spread of the coronavirus, a statement he defended. Ruhle asked Rubio to explain the tweet which he made earlier in the week, noting a portion where he said: “Some in our media can’t contain their glee & delight in reporting that the U.S. has more #CoronaVirus cases than #China…Beyond being grotesque, it’s bad journalism.” https://twitter.com/marcorubio/status/1244279416819273729 Here’s more from Washington Examiner: “I need to ask you this, because I’m a journalist,” Ruhle said. “We’re not just some personalities. You called out journalism. And I need to understand why on earth you did this.” Rubio said some journalists are “doing exactly what I said.” “Well, because there are some journalists that were doing exactly what I said,” the Florida Republican responded. “I read reports about how some Republicans are doing this, or some members of Congress are doing that. I don’t know what other word to describe who’s doing something and who isn’t.” Rubio gave a few examples of certain situations where he believes that journalists expressed happiness in reporting on coronavirus figures and noted that he said “some” not all journalists were behaving this way. https://twitter.com/TPMLiveWire/status/1246081048846401536 Rubio found support among many on the right, including Caleb Hull who tweeted: https://twitter.com/CalebJHull/status/1244311946817671173 The bottom line is, there are probably some journalists who are excited by the prospects that this virus is providing for the progressive movement. After all, Democrats are using this situation to try and pass a bunch of pet projects they want made law through inside these coronavirus relief packages, so is it so far fetched to think liberal journalists might think the same way? Regardless, here’s to hoping this all goes away sooner rather…
