Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham joined by 44 other Senators introduced a resolution condemning House Dems’ impeachment inquiry into President Trump, calling on Nancy Pelosi and her cronies to hold a formal vote on the inquiry.
The resolution which is backed by 44 GOP senators including Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell.
If passed, the resolution would throw Senate support behind asking the House to “vote to open a formal impeachment inquiry and provide President Trump with fundamental constitutional protections” before continuing with their proceedings.
He argued that under the current procedure Trump was “pretty much shut out,” adding “God help future presidents.”
The resolution calls on the House to hold a formal vote to start the impeachment inquiry, argues that the House should give Trump “due process” including “the ability to confront his accusers” and says that the House should give Republicans the ability to issue their own subpoenas.
During a press conference with reporters on Thursday, Sen. Graham lashed out at the impeachment inquiry calling it a “secret proceeding” and a “rogue action” that “denies due process.”
“The process in the House today I think is a danger to the future of the presidency,” Graham told reporters.
The Kentucky’s United States Senator Mitch McConnell also said the House inquiry is “violating basic rules of due process” and “breaking with critical precedents.”
“House Democrats are even denying their own Republican colleagues basic procedural rights that the minority party was granted throughout previous impeachments,” McConnell added.
