Appearing on Sunday Morning Futures with Maria Bartiromo, Senator Lindsey Graham blasted House Intel Chair Adam Schiff and his impeachment inquiry.
“This is not about [Intel Chairman Adam] Schiff finding the truth. This is about Schiff trying to destroy the Trump presidency. When you find out who is the whistleblower is, I’m confident, you’re gonna find out it’s somebody from the deep state. You’re gonna find out find they had interactions with Schiff and this thing’s gonna stink to high heaven.”
LINDSEY GRAHAM: "I consider any impeachment in the House that doesn't allow us to know who the whistleblower is to be invalid … if they don't call the whistleblower in the house, this thing is dead on arrival on the senate." pic.twitter.com/oWsBYeheH6

Per MSN, Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) likely didn’t appreciate House Intelligence Committee Chair Rep. Adam Schiff’s (D-Calif.) denial of a House GOP request to have Hunter Biden and the anonymous whistleblower testify in the congressional impeachment inquiry’s upcoming public hearings.
In a Fox News interview Sunday, Graham said he believes it would be beneficial to have Biden testify, but was even more adamant about the whistleblower, whose complaint about President Trump’s phone call in July with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky spurred the impeachment inquiry. Graham said if the House continues to keep the whistleblower’s identity under wraps, there’s no chance the Senate will carry find Trump guilty. He said it’s “impossible” to bring the case forward fairly, otherwise.
That said, Graham says he’s close to certain about the whistleblower’s occupation, if not their identity. “When you find out who the whistleblower is, I’m confident you’re gonna find out it’s somebody from the deep state,” he said during the interview. “You’re gonna find out that they had interactions with Schiff. This thing’s gonna stink to high heaven, and the only reason we don’t know who the whistleblower is, is that it hurts their cause.”
