Donald Trump’s second impeachment trial will begin next week in the U.S. Senate.
Most Americans are wondering what will happen.
And Fox News’ Trey Gowdy was left speechless after Lindsey Graham revealed this one fact about Donald Trump’s impeachment trial.
After he left Congress in 2018, former U.S. Representative Trey Gowdy joined Fox News as a political contributor.
But Gowdy is currently taking his turn hosting the 7PM show on the network.
And during his debut broadcast, Gowdy brought on Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham to talk about Donald Trump’s second impeachment trial that is set to begin next week.
Gowdy, a former prosecutor who President Trump requested to assist him during his first impeachment sham trial hearing in the Senate, asked Graham what would happen if Democrats called witnesses during the trial to give testimony about the events surrounding the January 6 riot at the Capitol.
And Gowdy was left speechless by Graham’s answer.
“If the House managers want to use this as a political commercial against Donald Trump and Republicans, and they want to call witnesses now . . . this thing could go for weeks or months and that would be bad for the country,” Graham began.
“To my Democratic colleagues, if you vote to call one witness, none were called in the House, get ready for a long trial . . . If you open up that can of worms, we’ll want the FBI to come in and tell us how people actually pre-planned these attacks and what happened with the security footprint at the Capitol. You open up Pandora’s box if you call one witness, I hope we don’t call any,” Graham declared, warning Democrats that calling in witnesses could tie the Senate in knots for months.
Of course, this would present a number of problems, as the Senate is not allowed to take up any other business during an impeachment trial.
And Donald Trump is no longer President.
So if Democrats call in witnesses and drag out the impeachment trial for months, it’ll grind all other business to a halt and show the American people that the Democrats care more about attacking Trump than they do working to solve the real issues facing our country.
