Graham Calls On Schumer To Hold Vote To Dismiss Article Of Impeachment Against Trump


Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) is urging incoming Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) to hold a vote to dismiss the article of impeachment against President Trump passed by the House last week.

In his letter, Graham explained why he believes the Senate proceeding with another impeachment trial is “unwise and unconstitutional.”

“Both the plain text and the evident purpose of Congress’ constitutional impeachment power make manifestly clear that the Congress is without the constitutional power to impeach a president, once he has left office.”

“The impeachment power exists to protect the nation from the harm that an incumbent president might inflict upon the nation were he to remain in office, not to vindicate political grievences after a presient has left office.”
