Senator Lindsey Graham told Fox News yesterday that the Senate will begin the impeachment trial next week, shortly after a resolution that demands Nancy Pelosi surrender the articles is filed.

In fact, Graham called out the unconstitutional extortion scheme Pelosi has been waging, saying that the “dam is about to crack.”

Many people hope the flood will engulf leftists who pushed through this harassment despite a lack of any proof.

Fox News reported:

Graham, the Republican chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, told Sean Hannity that Pelosi’s “dam is about to crack,” and cited recent reports that show emerging fissures in her own party. Several Democratic senators have publicly called on the articles to be delivered.

“You said it was urgent,” Graham said. “If you believe it to be urgent, send it to the Senate for disposition.”

Sen. Dianne Feinstein of California is one Democrat apparently growing impatient.

“The longer it goes on the less urgent it becomes,” she told Politico. “So if it’s serious and urgent, send them over. If it isn’t, don’t send it over.”

Graham said he plans to introduce the resolution Thursday. In it, he writes that Pelosi lacks “the power to effectively veto a resolution passed by a duly elected majority of the House of Representatives by refusing to transmit such a resolution to the Senate.”

Graham argued that hanging onto the articles “is a flagrant violation of the separation of powers expressly outlined in the bicameral impeachment process under the Constitution of the United States.”

Pelosi has voiced her concerns that Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell was coordinating with the White House to tilt the playing field.

Democrats sought assurances that the Senate would call certain witnesses, but McConnell made no such promise and said Tuesday that he has the votes needed to start the impeachment trial without an agreement.

“Hats off to Mitch McConnell for playing this very well,” Graham said on “Hannity.” “We’ll take the trial up next week.”
