Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Friday, January 10, 2020

In a C-SPAN interview from January 1999, Graham, a South Carolina representative at the time, spoke about the reasons he wanted witnesses in Clinton's impeachment. "The whole point that we're trying to make is that in every trial that there's ever been in the Senate, regarding impeachment, witnesses were called," he told C-SPAN. At the time, Graham said that if the Senate didn't "get to call meaningful witnesses" that "you're basically changing impeachment."

After all of the preliminary stuff is handled a motion will be filed to call witnesses. There really isn't anything to comment about on this thread unless Graham is opposed to any witnesses being called in this impeachment. The process hasn't even reached a point to where witnesses even come into play.

From what ROC was saying, McConnell is going to follow the same model as the Clinton impeachment. That includes a motion to dismiss prior to a motion to call witnesses. How are they going to call witnesses AFTER they (undoubtedly) dismiss the case entirely?

If they do they look weak and desperate.If the Dems have any sense they can work that. The repubs are not the only people who can spin.

I accurately cited the protocols that were used in the Clinton impeachment hearings.

Where does that leave you?

I don't understand why your default is to be a dick.

You said:

Graham has literally said "I am not going to support witnesses being called for by the president. I am not going to support witnesses being called for by Sen. Schumer," and that he wants as "short a trial as possible."

That makes you...uninformed. Just like i said.
