Graham then argued that from day one, Democrats had hit President Trump with one thing after another. “You took 48 days to impeach this president,” he said. “You did not allow him to call any witnesses. He could not have a lawyer present during the House Intel Committee. This has been a partisan railroad job. And you’re asking for fairness in the Senate? You violated every norm of what we do.”
Graham concluded by reminding Wallace that he had been the one who wanted former special counsel Robert Mueller to be allowed to do his job and had trusted him to do so in a fair manner. He added that the sooner the impeachment trial was over, the better it would be for the country. “This has been a political hit job. This is political revenge. What they’re doing to the presidency is a danger to the institution itself,” he said.
