Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) predicted there will be a stampede to impeach President Trump in the House and Democrats will use the Mueller report and "anything they can find" to try to destroy his presidency. Graham told FOX News' Sean Hannity he thought that "we all trusted Mueller" and it is news to him that the Mueller report "is not the final word on all things Trump, Russia collusion, [and] obstruction."
"Nancy Pelosi is not in charge of the Democratic Party," Graham said. "The radical left is in charge. So, I will expect that there will be impeachment proceedings against President Trump, and the Mueller report to me is vindication of President Trump."
"Mueller was the guy that I was going to let look at, make sure he looked at the idea of Trump working with the Russians and the verdict is in," Graham told Hannity. "There was no collusion. There’s no obstruction of a crime that never occurred. The obstruction thing was bizarre to me to begin with... The Democratic Party doesn't accept the fact that President Trump won. So, at the end of the day, we’re just going to have to deal with this in 2020 at the ballot box."
"They’re going to be stampeded to impeach Trump because they hate him so much, and I hate it for the country, I hate it for the president, but it’s going to result in him getting reelected," Graham said.
Graham also explained his plan to investigate the investigators:
GRAHAM: Well, there’s before and after the campaign.
Before the campaign, I want to find out did that George Papadopoulos, was he working with the Russians, or did they plant in his mind that the Russians had Hillary Clinton's email? In other words, do the knowledge about Russia and the Clinton emails come from somebody other than Russia?
How could you use a dossier four different times to get a warrant against American citizen when it's a bunch of garbage? Why didn't they tell the court that it was a politically motivated document?
I’m going to try to find out about the counterintelligence investigation, about how the FISA warrant was obtained against Carter Page.
Was there an effort to invoke the 25th Amendment? Who is telling the truth? McCabe or Rosenstein?
The person who leaked to "The Washington Post" that General Flynn was being surveilled during the transition period, if you can find out that person, that’s probably the one who started all of this.
HANNITY: It might be long -- it might be a lot earlier than the date we were told which is July 31st.
GRAHAM: A lot earlier.
