Sen. Lindsey Graham spoke to reporters on Tuesday, reminding them what the stakes are if witnesses are called for the Senate impeachment trial of President Donald J. Trump.

“If people want witnesses, we’re gonna get a LOT of witnesses,” he said.

Referencing former Vice President Joe Biden and hisson Hunter Biden, Graham said, “There’s not a scintilla of evidence that the Biden’s connection to Ukraine was inappropriate, there’s a tsunami of evidence.”

He went on to make a prediction that if Democrats call witnesses, Republicans will call them, too.

“I’ll make a prediction; they’ll be 51 Republican votes to call Hunter Biden, Joe Biden, the whistleblower and the DNC staffer [who reportedly met with a Ukrainian operative] at a very minimum,” Graham said. “As much as I like Joe Biden, he has to answer for his time as the leader of anti-corruption efforts in Ukraine.”

Graham then warned about including witnesses:

“We’re just not going to call [Former National Security Advisor] John Bolton. If you call John Bolton, we’re calling everybody. We’re not just going to call one witness. It’d be Joe Biden, it’d be Hunter Biden, it’d be the chief of staff to John Kerry, it’d be the DNC staffer who allegedly met with the Ukrainian operative.”

“I don’t know if it’s true or not,” Graham went on. “It’d be the whistleblower. It’d be a lot of people.”

Watch:

People on Twitter reacted to Graham’s statements.

Gina wrote: “Will Joes’, Hunter’s or the whistleblowers’ testimony change what the president did, or the fact that this is his trial? None of these peoples’ testimony will exonerate him.”

Chicca weighed in, saying, “Awesome. Then I can’t wait to see Ivanka and the rest of them being called as a witness, as well. If it is that, what they want…..”

Others agreed with Graham. Sarah wrote, “’Tsunami of evidence’…… true line. Hunter Biden was able to finagle because of his last name. Everyone knows it including Democrats but this was the only way to push an impeachment. Democrats should be livid over the precedents this sets!”

Mean-Deplorable Jay said, “I believe the Democrats & RINOS believe if they can get this witness circus started they will have the edge with news media spinning, blacking out testimony, and covering for them.”

An account named “It’s Just the OK sign” predicted, “I think the left is setting themselves up for another dud if Bolton is called.”

In all caps, one user vehemently disagreed with Graham and his supporters. Susan Wisner Phillips insisted:

“HUNTER BIDEN IS NOT ON TRIAL!
IF HE COMMITTED CRIMES ARREST HIM.

“ANY PRESIDENT CANNOT COMMIT CRIMES IN ORDER TO INVESTIGATE ANY POTENTIAL CRIME. REPEAT!

“WITHHOLDING APPROPRIATED AID FOR POLITICAL ANNOUNCEMENT IS A CRIME.

“OBSTRUCTING CONGRESS TO EVIDENCE & WITNESSES IS A CRIME.”
