VIDEO: Graham Denounces Impeachment Process in Fiery Press Conference

Senator Lindsey Graham held a press conference Thursday to introduce a Senate Resolution condemning the House of Representatives’ closed-door impeachment inquiry.

Trump tweeted after the conference:

Thank you to House Republicans for being tough, smart, and understanding in detail the greatest Witch Hunt in American History. It has been going on since long before I even got Elected (the Insurance Policy!). A total Scam!

WATCH:

Per Yahoo, the stated purpose of the press conference was the introduction of a resolution co-sponsored with Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., and endorsed by more than 40 other Republicans, calling on the House to vote on opening a formal impeachment inquiry, something House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., has resisted doing so far

The resolution criticizes House Democrats for “abandoning more than a century’s worth of precedent and tradition in impeachment proceedings and denying President Trump basic fairness and due process accorded every American.” It echoes House Republicans’ complaints about secrecy and Trump’s due process rights.

Republicans have been infuriated by how Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Calif., a former prosecutor who heads the House Intelligence Committee, has handled the inquiry, in particular by what they see as his undue emphasis on secrecy.

They have tried to censure Schiff; on Wednesday, Republican House members stormed the secure basement room in the Capitol, where the hearings have been taking place, demanding Schiff make witness testimony public.
