As the House gears up to vote on the articles of impeachment, Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) is ready for the farce to be over with.
During an interview with Fox News last week, Graham said he’s ready to deal with things as quickly as possible and wants to “deep six” the impeachment trial.

When Fox News anchor Bill Hemmer asked for clarification, Graham said:
“What I would like to see happen for this thing to get over as soon as possible. I don’t want to give it any legitimacy because it is a crock. I trusted Mueller, who is an outside entity, to look at all things Trump and Russia. He did for two years and took no action. Every impeachment except this one has been conducted by outside counsel.”
Graham also added that he doesn’t want to call Secretary of State Mike Pompeo or Vice President Mike Pence to testify, adding, “Let the House managers present their case. Let the President’s lawyers comment on the House case. Then vote.”
The Senator made it clear that he believes the impeachment investigation has been a waste of time and that it’s in the country’s best interest to end it ASAP.
