On Sunday, Republican Senator Lindsey Graham announced that if the impeachment trial does not include the whistleblower who sparked the impeachment inquiry in the first place, then it would be “dead on arrival in the Senate.”
The comments by the Republican Senator were made on Fox News with Maria Bartiromo.
“You’ve said on the program not too long ago that Hunter Biden needs to answer questions, what is your reaction to this list that your colleagues in the house have prepared as far as those they would like to hear from?” Bartiromo asked.
“They could care less about getting to the truth, what really did happen, why was the prosecutor fired, the John Solomon FOIA request is stunning, you can see efforts in the State Department where they were worried about the conflict of interest between Hunter Biden and the company being investigated,” Graham replied.
“We will look at that,” he continued. “I consider any impeachment in the House that doesn’t allow us to know who the whistleblower is to be invalid because without the whistleblower complaint we wouldn’t be talking about any of this. And I also see the need for Hunter Biden to be called to adequately defend the president and if you don’t do those two things it’s a complete joke.”
Graham continued by discussing why he felt it necessary to have Hunter Biden testify in the Senate, saying there were many questions that needed to be answered.
“But back to the whistleblower,” he said. “It’s impossible to bring this case forward in my view fairly without us knowing who the whistleblower is and having a chance to cross examine them about any advice they may have, if they don’t call the whistleblower in the house, this thing is dead on arrival on the Senate.”
