During a press conference on Wednesday, Lindsey Graham along with other Republican Senators hammered Democrats for their treatment of President Donald Trump in the ongoing impeachment sham.
“When it comes to replacing (Trump) 9 months plus from the election, you got an uphill battle with me because I really do believe that the best person — group of people to pick a president — are the voters, not a bunch of partisan politicians,” Graham slammed. “To my Democratic colleagues, you can say what you want about me but I am covering up nothing.”
“If I were the president I wouldn’t cooperate with these guys at all,” Graham also noted.

Check out what the Daily Caller reported:
The comments come as Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell made a change to a resolution Tuesday that will lengthen Trump’s impeachment trial in the Senate by at least one day.
The altered resolution will give both sides 24 hours to argue their case over three trial days instead of two as originally planned. Senators would then be given 16 hours for questioning. The schedule would mean a break from the previously scheduled 12-hour days of argument in the Senate. The impeachment trial could be over before Trump’s scheduled State of the Union address, on Feb. 4.
Senator Rand Paul also had some things to say about the impeachment trial. Paul took to Twitter on Wednesday to thank far-left representative and "impeachment manager" Adam Schiff for unifying Republicans.
Schiff was in charge of the bogus House impeachment inquiry and is continuing to push his propaganda in the Senate impeachment trial.
“The more we hear from Adam Schiff, the more the GOP is getting unified against this partisan charade!” Paul said on Twitter.
Paul has been very vocal about his support for President Trump in the ongoing Senate impeachment trial.
During an interview last week, Paul issued a stern warning to GOP Senators, urging them to not fall for the Democrats' impeachment demands.
Paul started by clarifying if Senate Republicans are intent on having the whistleblower and Hunter Biden testify in the Senate impeachment trial.
“There’s a lot of people who are quiet, so I’ve been kind of loud,” Senator Paul said. “My goal in this is to be done with the impeachment as soon as possible, and probably the best way to do that is actually no witnesses — but, if we’re going to have witnesses we should have witnesses from both sides."
Paul continued by warning his colleagues to not commit political suicide by allowing Democrats to chose witnesses.
“What I keep trying to convince my colleagues, particularly the ones that might vote to allow the witnesses that the Democrats want to call, is that if they do that and they don’t vote to allow the president to bring his witnesses in, I think the Republican base and Trump supporters are going to be very very unhappy with them. I think it will have electoral consequences — which is sort of my way of saying that maybe they should reconsider having any witnesses at all,” he said. “My hope is some will reconsider and we will just be done with one vote.”
