Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) is facing pushback from some of his Republican colleagues over his plan to send a letter to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) warning that the caucus won’t remove President Trump from office. Graham raised the forthcoming letter during a closed-door caucus lunch on Wednesday, multiple sources told The Hill.
The letter, according to Graham’s own description, would warn House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) that Senate Republicans will not vote to remove President Trump from office because of a phone call where he asked the Ukrainian government to “look into” former Vice President Joe Biden and his son, Hunter Biden.
The article goes on to state the following:
Asked if the letter would backfire if it doesn’t get enough signatures, Kennedy acknowledged “that’s a risk.” He added some GOP senators want to hear more on impeachment and could be put in an awkward spot.
“I will sign the letter, but that doesn’t mean I think it’s necessarily a good idea,” Sen. John Kennedy (R-La.) told The Hill. “We don’t need distractions right now.”
Kennedy said that while some senators may not want to sign the letter, it “does not indicate necessarily that they don’t support” President Trump.
“They just want to hear more, and I just don’t think that’s fair to them,” Kennedy added.
