Donald Trump got this impeachment update on his fate that left his jaw on the ground

Democrats did not expect Donald Trump’s impeachment trial to go this way.

Everyone thought they already knew the outcome.

And Donald Trump got this impeachment update on his fate that left his jaw on the ground.

When six Republican Senators voted to reject the argument that holding an impeachment trial for a private citizen was unconstitutional, everyone assumed there were six Republican votes to convict Donald Trump.

That would make this the most “bipartisan” impeachment in American history.

But Democrats overplayed their hand by basing their case solely on video of rioters at the Capitol.

On Sean Hannity’s Fox News program, South Carolina Senator Lindsey Graham told Hannity that GOP Senators found the Democrats’ presentation “offensive and absurd” and that Democrats were losing some of the Republicans who voted to allow the trial to proceed.

Graham argued that no one was defending the rioters, but the Democrat impeachment managers never said one word when liberal mobs terrorized Susan Collins or himself at their houses or were spitting on them at the Capitol.

“I hope the defense team is watching your show,” he said. “But let me tell your viewers: The ‘not guilty’ vote is growing after today. I think most Republicans found the presentation by the House managers offensive and absurd. We all know what happened at the Capitol was terrible. I hope everybody involved that broke into the Capitol goes to jail. But I don’t remember any of the House managers saying a damn thing when they were trying to break into my house and going after Susan Collins and spitting on all of us.”

Graham also addressed the substance of the Democrats’ charges, calling them “loony tunes” and warning Democrats that by this standard, Vice President Kamala Harris could be impeached for inciting violence when she raised money for a fund that bailed rioters out of jail this summer.

The South Carolina Senator added that it was insane to claim that Donald Trump was somehow monitoring groups like the Proud Boys’ website in order to follow and encourage their plans for violence at the Capitol.

“That is loony tunes,” Graham continued. “And you know why they are saying that? Because if the President didn’t know, and it was actually preplanned, he is not guilty. So for the first time today, they are trying to create a storyline that Donald Trump was in on it before it happened — that he was monitoring the Proud Boys and other crazy websites, and he knew they were going to come to Washington with violence on their mind, and he encouraged it. That is beyond bizarre. This is not evidence. This is a liberal Democratic novel being presented as evidence.”
