Graham: Support For Impeachment Going Up Because Trump Is "Unnerving People By His Actions"

|

FOX NEWS RADIO: Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) spoke with Brian Kilmeade and discussed having Rudy Giuliani testify before the Senate Judiciary Committee on Ukraine corruption potentially tied to former Vice President Joe Biden and why he believes President Trump's phone call with Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelensky "was a good phone call not a bad phone call."

"I'm going to stand by him," Graham said Friday. "I'm going to fight for him because I think what they're doing is wrong."





BRIAN KILMEADE, FOX NEWS RADIO: All right. You think you worry -- if you're Trey Gowdy, you worry the president's not going to listen?

SEN. LINDSEY GRAHAM (R-SC): Well, the president in many ways is his own best offender, in many ways is his own worst enemy. He's a force of personality. He's a -- I like him, he's my friend. What he's doing in Syria I think is going to hurt his presidency and make us less safe and I'm going to tell him that. But I think this effort to impeach him is ridiculous.

KILMEADE: Right.

GRAHAM: I'm going to stand by him. I'm going to fight for him because I think what they're doing is wrong.

KILMEADE: How do you explain the Fox News poll and other polls that show more -- there's more support for impeachment than ever.

GRAHAM: I think part of it is that the president's unnerving people by his actions. I think the whole Syria thing goes into the calculation that maybe he's losing control over the situation in Syria. I don't think that helps him in terms of being seen as a competent, capable leader. What did Clinton do during impeachment? He governed.

He dealt with the Congress. We passed legislation while he was being impeached. My advice for President Trump is govern the country. These numbers are shifting mainly because Democrats are more enthused than they were before. But independents are beginning to bleed against the president.

I think a guy like Trey Gowdy can remind the American people that what's going on in the House is not fair. The American people, if they're anything, they're fair. I don't think most Americans would like to be tried by an anonymous source.

So what Trey has to do and I have to do is convince the American people that if it's really as bad as the House says, why don't they vote? If they're not willing to vote, this is not right.
