Graham on Pelosi Plan to Hold House Vote on Procedures

WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham (R-South Carolina) today made this statement on news Speaker Pelosi will hold a vote on rules and procedures guiding an investigation of President Donald Trump. 

“A vote now is a bit like un-ringing a bell as House Democrats have selectively leaked information in order to damage President Trump for weeks.

“There is no doubt in my mind that the overwhelming response House Democrats heard from the American people and Senate Republicans in support of my resolution forced their hand.  Today’s announcement is an acknowledgement of the success of our efforts last week.

“The American people have been outraged by the unfair nature and lack of due process House Democrats have given to President Trump.  I take pride in the fact that our vigorous response to their underhanded tactics ended up making the House Democrat position untenable.  Today, they were forced to change course.

“Finally, I look forward to reviewing their proposal and ensuring it provides President Trump with the rights and privileges Republicans afforded former President Clinton during the 1998 impeachment process.”
