Chairman of the U.S. Senate Judiciary Committee, Republican Lindsey Graham explained the reason for impeaching U.S. President Donald Trump. He wrote about it in his Twitter.
According to the politician, the launching of this procedure in the U.S. Senate of Congress is “an unconstitutional act of political revenge.” “Now instead of your first act as majority leader to begin the national healing that the country longs for, you are seeking revenge and political retaliation,” he addressed Senate Democratic Leader Chuck Schumer.
Graham also warned that impeachment would only push to divide the American people.
Earlier, it was reported that consideration of impeachment of Trump in the Senate could take place almost immediately after the inauguration of President-elect Joe Biden. In that case, impeachment would be considered when Trump is already a former president.
On January 14, the U.S. House of Representatives voted to impeach incumbent President Donald Trump over the recent unrest in Washington. The debate lasted more than seven hours. The vote to impeach Trump over sedition was 232, with 197 lawmakers voting against. The vote was the second attempt to impeach Trump.
