By Daily Caller. Republican South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham said Sunday that any impeachment trial that does not include access to the whistleblower would be “dead on arrival in the Senate.”
Graham made the comments during an appearance on “Sunday Morning Futures” with Maria Bartiromo.
Bartiromo began by asking Graham about the list of witnesses the House had planned to call in the coming weeks. “You’ve said on the program not too long ago that Hunter Biden needs to answer questions, what is your reaction to this list that your colleagues in the house have prepared as far as those they would like to hear from?” she asked.
“They could care less about getting to the truth, what really did happen, why was the prosecutor fired, the John Solomon FOIA request is stunning, you can see efforts in the State Department where they were worried about the conflict of interest between Hunter Biden and the company being investigated,” Graham responded.
