Here’s what he said.
According to Breitbart News, Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) urged President Donald Trump not to cooperate with the impeachment proceedings.
“I don’t blame the president for not participating in the House impeachment inquiry,” Graham said. “I supported Mueller. I gave him the space he needed to look at the president for two [years]. What I’m telling you is this is a partisan impeachment. And if I were the president of the United States, I would not cooperate at all with these people until the court said I had to.”
“They impeached President Trump because he dared to go to court,” Graham continued. “I’ve never said a president has to waive executive privilege. The House chose not to allow the president to go to court. Instead of allowing him to go to court to litigate these issues, they impeached him for his decision to go to court. I hope we reject this soundly because it is a danger to the presidency.”
“I took Mueller seriously,” he added. “I don’t take [Adam] Schiff, [Jerry] Nadler seriously. And I don’t take Chuck Schumer seriously when he says he is looking for the truth. He is looking to be the majority leader, nothing more.” You can read the full article here.
