Appearing on “Sunday Morning Futures” Republican Chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee Lindsey Graham argued earlier today that the impeachment process in the House is partisan and Adam Schiff is “doing a lot of damage to the Country.”
Per FoxNews, Republicans have been criticizing Schiff for subpoenaing and releasing phone records of calls between the office of former Intelligence Committee Chairman Rep. Devin Nunes, R-Calif., and Rudy Giuliani, Giuliani associate Lev Parnass, and journalist John Solomon.
“I think it’s dangerous,” Graham said. “Here’s what I would tell Adam Schiff. Do you really want to start calling other members, Republican members of Congress in oversight? Do you want me to call you to the Senate as part of Senate oversight?”
Graham said he would never do that, because “I’m not going to participate in things I think will destroy the country,” Graham said. He pointed out that while members of Congress are not above the law, “we’re not going to turn the Senate into a circus.”
Graham continued to take Schiff to task for his role in the impeachment inquiry as a whole, pointing out that previous investigations were led by special counsels, not members of Congress with a partisan agenda.
“Adam Schiff is doing a lot of damage to the country,” Graham said. “And he needs to stop.”
Meanwhile, appearing on “Face the Nation” Schiff says that his committee will focus on “issues that provide the greatest threat to the country” in its inquiry of Trump.
