Graham challenges whistleblower to appear before Senate Judiciary


HIS SON? HERE WITH MORE REACTION, SENATE JUDICIARY CHAIRMAN, LINDSEY GRAHAM. I DON’T KNOW. I THINK THAT IF I FLEW TO CHINA AND I HAD NO EXPERIENCE IN PRIVATE EQUITY AND I GOT A DEAL, I WOULD BE PRETTY HAPPY, BUT IT DOESN’T LOOK GOOD, DOES IT.>>Linsday: WELL, YOU KNOW, WE’VE LOOKED AT THE TRUMP FAMILY. IT’S ABOUT TIME SOMEBODY LOOK AT THE CONNECTIONS OF THE UKRAINE. HERE’S MY QUESTION. WHEN THE VICE PRESIDENT TOLD THE UKRAINE WE WILL TAKE THE MONEY AWAY FROM YOU UNLESS YOU FIRE THE PROSECUTOR, DID HE HAVE A CONFLICT OF INTEREST BECAUSE THEY WERE LOOKING AT HIS SON? TOMORROW, WE WILL READ THE TRANSCRIPT. IS THERE ANY EVIDENCE AT ALL THAT PRESIDENT TRUMP THREATENED TO TAKE AID AWAY. I DON’T KNOW, BUT I WILL TELL YOU THIS. THE ANSWER IS, YES. I WILL BE ON YOUR SHOW VERY DISAPPOINTED WITH OUR PRESIDENT. IF THE ANSWER IS NO, THIS IS RUSSIA TIMES TO TIMES TEN.>>Sean: DO YOU SEE EVEN JUST THE RUSH TO JUDGMENT? WE DON’T KNOW WHAT’S HERE. WE DO KNOW THE INSPECTOR GENERAL HAD THAT SO-CALLED “WHISTLE-BLOWER” POLITICAL AGENDA. THEY DON’T KNOW ANY OF THE FACTS. THEY DON’T KNOW ANY OF THE DETAILS. DONALD TRUMP IS GOING TO RELEASE HIS TRANSCRIPTS WITH UKRAINE. I’D LIKE TO RELEASE JOE BIDEN’S CONVERSATIONS WITH LEADERS WHEN HE WAS VICE PRESIDENT AND MAY BE BARACK OBAMA’S AS WELL. IS THAT FAIR?>>Lindsey: YEAH, I THINK IT’S VERY FAIR. WHO TOLD HIM OR HER ABOUT IT? SEE TOO WELL, THAT’S>>Lindsey: LET ME TELL YOU. SOMEBODY TOLD THIS PERSON ABOUT A PHONE CALL. DID THEY HAVE A POLITICAL AGEND AGENDA? I WILL MAKE AN OFFER ON TELEVISION. IF YOU WANT TO TESTIFY UNDER OATH TO THE JUDICIARY COMMITTEE, YOU ARE WELCOME TO DO SO. I WANT TO FIND THE TRUTH. HERE’S ANOTHER QUESTION. WAS THERE A REASON TO WITHHOLD AID TO THIS UKRAINIAN ADMINISTRATION? WAS IT OKAY FOR PRESIDENT TRUMP TO WITHHOLD MONEY TO TRY TO GET OTHER COUNTRIES TO GIVE MORE? THESE ARE THE QUESTIONS THAT SOMEBODY NEEDS TO ASK AND ANSWER.>>Sean: SENATOR, IS THIS GOOD POLITICALLY SPEAKING? HOW DO YOU THINK THIS PLAYS OUT FOR THE DEMOCRATS?>>Lindsey: WELL, IT TELLS ME THAT THEY THINK THEY ARE GOING TO LOSE AT THE BALLOT BOX. THE ONLY REASON THEY ARE TRYING TO IMPEACH THE PRESIDENT IS BECAUSE THEY DON’T BELIEVE THEY CAN BEAT HIM AT THE BALLOT BOX SO THEY ARE TRYING TO DESTROY IT. IT COMES ONTO THIS. IF THERE IS NO EVIDENCE THAT PRESIDENT TRUMP TRIED TO COERCE THE UKRAINIAN INTO INVESTIGATING BIDEN AND WITHHOLDING AID, THEN THERE’S NOTHING HERE. THAT WILL BE THE ONLY THING THAT WOULD BOTHER ME. IT WOULD BE OKAY FOR THE PRESIDENT TO TELL THE UKRAINIANS, HEY, IF HE WAS FIRED FOR A PURPOSE, MAYBE YOU SHOULD LOOK AT IT.>>Sean: HOW DO YOU GET TO A POINT WERE DEMOCRATS, CRAZY NEW GREEN DEAL, $36 TRILLION, SOME ESTIMATES, $94 TRILLION FOR THE NEW GREEN DEAL. THEY WANT TO STACK THE U.S. SUPREME COURT. THEY WANT TO GET RID OF THE ELECTORAL COLLEGE. IT SEEMS THAT THIS PARTY HAS LOST ANY SENSE OF CONSTITUTIONAL GOVERNMENTS. THE ENUMERATED POWERS OF COMMANDER AND CHIEF LIE WITH THE PRESIDENT. HOW DOES THE PRESIDENT EFFECTIVELY BE THE COMMANDER AND CHIEF IF HIS PHONE CALLS ARE BEING SPIED ON AND LEAKS ARE COMING OUT FOR PEOPLE THAT HAVE POLITICAL AGENDAS. IF THIS IS SECONDHAND INFORMATION, WHERE DID IT COME FROM AND HOW IS IT THAT THEY GOT SO MUCH WRONG IT ALREADY?>>Lindsey: I THINK WHAT WE WANT TO KNOW IS IF THE WHISTLE-BLOWER IS TELLING US SOMETHING THAT THEY KNOW TO BE TRUE FIRSTHAND, REPEATING GOSSIP GIVEN TO THEM BY SOMEBODY ELSE. BUT HERE’S WHAT TRUMP HAS DONE THAT SO IMPORTANT. YOU CAN READ IT FOR YOURSELF TOMORROW. THE ONE THING ABOUT THIS PRESIDENT THAT I ADMIRE IS THAT HE IS RELEASING A PHONE CALL THAT YOU CAN MAKE YOUR OWN JUDGMENT. IF THERE IS NO EVIDENCE THAT DONALD TRUMP TRIED TO WITHHOLD MILITARY AID, THERE’S NOTHING HERE. BUT THERE’S A LOT HERE WHEN IT COMES TO BIDEN. DID HE HAVE A CONFLICT OF INTEREST WHEN HE THREATENED TO WITHHOLD AID TO THE UKRAINE? THAT NEEDS TO BE LOOKED AT. WAS THERE A REASON TO WITHHOLD AFTER THE SELECTION APART FROM BIDEN? A LOT OF PEOPLE WERE WORRIED ABOUT THIS NEW ADMINISTRATION. SHOULD WE >>Sean: LET M SHOULD WE >>Sean: LET E SHOULD WE >>Sean: LET A SHOULD WE >>Sean: LET K SHOULD WE >>Sean: LET Y SHOULD WE >>Sean: LET U SHOULD WE >>Sean: LET T SHOULD WE >>Sean: LET I SHOULD WE >>Sean: LET . IF WE ARE AT A POINT HERE WHERE THIS IS WHAT WE ARE GOING TO DO IS WE ARE NOW GOING TO SPY ON PRESIDENTS, I DON’T KNOW WHERE THIS ALL ENDS UP, IS AMERICA SAFE BECAUSE OF THIS?>>Lindsey: AMERICA IS FAR LESS SAFE WHEN A WHISTLE-BLOWER FILES A COMPLAINT WHEN THEY WERE NOT A PART OF THE PHONE CALL. IF THE DEMOCRATIC THREATENED TO WITHHOLD AID TO A FOREIGN COUNTRY UNLESS A PROSECUTOR IS LOOKING AT HIS SON AND NOTHING HAPPENS AND THEY ARE WILLING TO IMPEACH PRESIDENT TRUMP ON A PHONE CALL THEY KNOW NOTHING ABOUT.>>Sean: LAST QUESTION. COULD YOU IMAGINE ANY SCENARIO UNDER WHICH A VICE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES WITHHOLDS $1 BILLION. I’M NOT GOING TO HAVE IT TO YOU UNLESS YOU FIRE A UKRAINIAN PROSECUTOR?>>Lindsey: IT REAL QUICK. WHAT IF MIKE PENCE CALLS SOMEBODY TOMORROW AND THREATENS

  1. Graham's promotion of Red Flag Law will prove much more egregious to Rights ! Biden and his comrades life in prison one meal a day .

  2. All's fair in love and war! We are at war right now lets smother it with love!… Spread the LOVE people! The truth will set us free!

  3. Shokin was corrupt, and was in the crosshairs of the EU and a host of western investigators for a long time….nothing to do with Hunter Biden. Period. Biden was an idiot to accept a position on the Board of Burisma…but there is nothing more there. Zlochevsky is as corrupt a Ukrainian as all of the russian oligarchs, put them all in the same basket, and Biden should not have had anything to do with him…but that is all that is there. No, Biden did not have a conflict of interest, Shokin did not even have an open case against Biden….Lindsay, you really need to do at least a little bit of research before opening your mouth!!!

  4. How sad it must be to believe scientist, historians, economist, journalist and your fellow Americans have devoted their entire life to deceiving you, while a failed businessman, a reality tv host with decades of fraud, adultery and exhaustingly documented dishonesty is your only beacon of truth and honesty. The majority of Americans did fall for the conman Trump and after 4 years of seeing his crimes in public with our own eyes- The majority of Americans will not throw their vote away especially on a conman and a thief. Whataboutism, also known as whataboutery, is a variant of the tu quoque logical fallacy that attempts to discredit an opponent's position by charging them with hypocrisy without directly refuting or disproving their argument, which in the United States is particularly associated with Soviet and Russian propaganda. If that doesn't work scream fake news. If that doesn't work blame the female Hillary or the black guy Obama. We real Americans see you and are tired of it. See you at the polls

  5. Anyone who has even a rudimentary knowledge of how our government works and is honest with themselves knows that this push for impeachment is going absolutely nowhere.
    Pelosi and her cronies took the bait…hook, line, and sinker.

    Reel 'em in and filet 'em, Mr. President.

  6. It's TIME WE the People storm the halls of Congress and do mass citizen arrest.. THEN we need to storm in the media studio's at CNN MSNBC and a few others and do citizen arrest there too… These people ARE our enemy.. They are all in cahoots together .. ALL getting so rich betraying us and our country AND our elected President…

  7. Whistle blower law changed one month  before this claim was made. It allows hearsay as admissible evidence to make claim!!! It is 1984. Changing the rules just to get one person, namely Donald Trump.  Investigate who and why change was made.

  8. Another charade to try to discredit the President. It will backfire in the Dems face. I predict you won't see another Democratic President for the next 12 years

  9. Lindsey Graham says the person the Dems should be investigating is Santa Claus because he's been breaking into people's homes all over the world!

  10. I smell a skunk here cause why has the EPSTEIN case gone bye bye..and now Many know Steve Bannon took rides over 30xs with him..yea Sloppy Steve Bannon..is Impeachment a rues to take [email protected] eyes Off the Ball ?!! How much is this beloved President not telling ..? Now if I can see this, you think Patriots arent Wondering ?

  11. Quit bringing up the past administration, we are in 2019! Read the transcript and decide for yourself and get a new lawyer!🤗

  12. Lindsey Graham better get with the program, hes doing nothing, Nadler n other dems are hauling ppl into Congress left and right! What's he waiting for? Why does he supena a few loud mouthed democrats? What the he'll has he been doing? Sometimes I can't tell what side he's on! He lets the Democrats walk all over ppl! He can supena a few of these liars and grill them just like Nadler! Come on Lindsey get in the fight, don't just stand there making comments like your neutral, speak up, defend our President!

  13. Who is the so-called "Whistleblower"? Why can't Trump confront his accuser? The complaint is based on nothing but hearsay and rumor. Of course, nothing can be proved against Hunter Biden because the Ukrainian prosecutor was fired. If Ukraine is not allowed to investigate there is no possible way to find out what Hunter Biden did. Trump merely asked, "What's going on? If the Ukrainian prosecutor was fired for corrupt purposes maybe it should be investigated?"

  14. We should stand our Intelligence agencies , if it's about US national security concern then our Intelligence are doing great, whistle blower didn't have poiltical agenda , he must have to be only for US

  15. Thank you sir. Well said. Sir trump is doing his best for the country. No one can bring him down. Messiah of America Chosen one Aka God sent . 🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏

  16. There is no whistleblower,ony,a planned and implemented conspiracy as Russian hoax,same players.
    However,a REAL Ukrainian corruption exists,not involving President Trump.

  17. how about spy devices tapping communications could be how about mole paid for by biddens money china knocking out trump via paid off democratic party.

  18. It's a whistle blower. There was no leak here. The DNI already said everything was by the book. But Graham still "wants to know”. Well we all know Trump sent his personal lawyer to do work an investigation that is not his place to do. It's all in the transcript. These two Yes men don't care. Fine most of us do care.

  19. Leningrad Lindsey, I loved when he used to trash Trump and call him out for what he was. Now Lenigrad is a coward Russian supporting GOP traitorous Senator. To Me Lindsey is fodder.

  20. Lindsey Graham is a flip-flopping, double-talking sidewinder who avoids truth like the plague!! Naturally he's down on the
    one person in the White House who chose to abide by the law and report wrongdoing of the worst kind. What is it that makes people go with lies and crime when they're not forced to do so?? That goes for all you Trump supporting republicans!!

  21. The exact things happening in Britain
    @,
    1st Nov Europe takes over British military, special forces Cheltenham etc
    DESPITE BREXIT,,,FIRST NOVEMBER THIS YEAR
    PASS THIS ON!

  22. iSN'T IT IRONIC THE REPUBLICANS WANT THE WHISTLEBLOWER TO SHOW UP AND TESTIFY. WE CANNOT GET TRUMP'S TAXES, TRUMP'S BANK STATEMENTS. DON MCGAHAN, ANNIE DONALDSON IGNORED SUBPOENAS . TRUMP WROTE 10 ANSWERS TO QUESTIONS IN THE MULLER PROBE. HE HIRED SEVENTY NEW [PAID BY US] LAWYERS TO KEEP HIM AFLOAT. SUPPORTS ISRAEL, SAUDI ARABIA AND RUSSIA. AND IS DETERMINED TO HAVE A LITTLE WAR.

  23. Elections are very disappointing and sad. America has become so divided by this continuous bickering. There’s no peace anymore. No positive news. No trust. No feeling of confidence in our elected officials. Where’s the focus ? While our infrastructure is falling apart, health care and prescription drug cost is so ridiculously overpriced, families are suffering especially our children, crime is astonishing, morals are anything goes, and the list goes on ; our elected officials are using their valuable time pulling America apart. It’s pure disgusting.

  24. I hope Graham BURNS in hell! You are a disgrace to the human race. You sold your soul to the DEVIL!!! MCcain must be ashamed of you. You are a vomit!!

  25. Trump is so short sighted and foolish, that he ONLY thinks about today. You raised Hunter Biden, let us see what most of the fools backing you now would say when the Democrats start to investigate your children when you are out of office. Its fair game!

  26. The Congress should have been working with the President to comet to a peace deal with Korea. But they did not. They did NOTHING FOR 2 1/2 years. But even if you disagree…., you have to ask yourself are we missing an opportunity to solve a 70 year old problem? Could we have done better? And…., no the Democrats never talked of attempting a peace deal with N. Korea. A failure there is just another reason to reconsider the current congressional control we have with the Dumbo-crats. Sorry but this is way more important than the games some of us see going on. IMO!!!

  27. Even if Trump gets in trouble and possibly impeached, the Democratic Party opened up the need to investigate Biden and the Obama Administration regarding abuse of power, especially since Biden has on records said he had threaten to withhold aid if the Ukraine didn't fire the prosecutor. So good-bye Biden and yet another black mark on the Obama Administration.

  28. These Republicans just make me laugh. Take a false narrative and just keep talking it up and up and if you say it three times that makes it true. Don't really investigate just fight off the truth at every turn.
    The last person who should be talking about justice and truth is Horrible Hannity. Lying Lindsey just falls all over himself on Hannity special trying to beat Horrible Hannity in grabbing Dump Trump by the genitalia. If the Republicans would have read the whole transcript and not just take the talking points the White House sent out to everyone including the Democrats they might truly understand what is going on up there in the White House.

  29. You know Hannity, when it takes you 43 seconds to ask a question it's clear that all you really want is to hear yourself ASK that question. You LOVE the sound of your own voice. It gets a bit sickening after a while.

  30. I used to lean towards being a dem. I am now so far away from agreeing with dems that I am disgusted by them. There is so much corruption in the DNC that they have relegated themselves irrelevant….

  31. How about not just going on FOX NEWS, and acting like you did something, and actually DO SOMETHING like start an investigation into Biden and his son, and make them testify.

  32. This whistle blower crap is coming from the same people who attempted coup via Russia probe they want to smear Trump for 2020 they are fools to try but when this is debunked they will invent another Democratic lie because they never give up. TRUMP 2020 !!

  33. Lindsey Graham on 01/21/1999 : “A President doesn’t even have to be convicted of a crime to be impeached. Impeachment is not about punishment. Impeachment is about cleansing the office. Impeachment is about restoring honor and integrity to the office. So, the point I’m trying to make is that you don’t even have to be convicted of a crime to lose your job in this constitutional republic if this body determines that your conduct as a public official is clearly out of bounds in your role.”

  34. OMG… the Dems just made a promotion from liars leakers to the whistle-blowers… My suggestion is just going after the money's trail or there is an easier way out just talk to Peter Schweitzer… he just may spill the beans from China to Ukraina… from CCash to Secret empires…
    Just a friendly reminder…
    EUDS

  35. BACK IN PRESIDENT CLINTON DAYS WHICH WAS THE 1990 IMPEACHMENT …THAT SAME LYING, HYPROCRITE, SEE NO EVIL, HEAR NO EVIL LINDSEY GRAHAM DID SAID THAT IMPEACHMENT IS NOT ABOUT PUNISHMENT. ….IMPEACHMENT IS ABOUT CLEANSING THE OFFICE, IMPEACHMENT IS ABOUT STORING HONOR INTEGRITY TO THE OFFICE. THEN NOW WHAT IS THE FRIGGING PROBLEM WITH THIS IMPEACHMENT FOR PHARAOH WHO IS ON THE PHONE ASKING FOR URAINE FOREGIN LEADER TO HELP WITH 2020 ELECTION….THIS NOT THE SAME TYPE OF IMPEACHMENT FOR PHARAOH THE LEADER????? SEE NO EVIL HEAR NO EVIL LINDSEY GRAHAM NEEDS TO BE CLEANSE WITH THE IMPEACHMENT ALSO, RUDY POMPEO ALL OF THE REPUBLICAN PARTY GOVERNMENT CONVICTS..

  36. I think just asking a foreign country to investigate and get dirt on his opponent is why he’s facing impeachment. Isn’t that what the Mueller investigation was about? Idk Trump doesn’t play by the rules of government.

  37. Lindsey Graham is the real deal with a sense of purpose and respect for honesty. Anyone with those traits is a man.

  38. The treaty between the US and Ukraine was authored by William J Clinton in 1998 and was ratified by the senate in 2000. Criminal investigations are covered under this treaty as well as a broad spectrum of related activities between the United States and the Ukraine. The president of the United States has abided by this treaty and is not in violation of the Constitutional law.

  39. L Graham will go into HISTORY BOOKS as aligning w Trump. His descendants will be ashamed of their relationship to him. He will regret supporting Trump for the rest of his life. FOX will suffer greatly for supporting Trump this past 3 years. ByeBye Lindsey. By mid Jan 2020, so much will be revealed about Trump that nothing can even keep him in office to finish his presidency. His fail has started.

  40. Lindsey the Lame…possibly the most disrespected Senator in the 2019 Senate…he's already determined that lying and conspiracy making is the only path to re-election.

  41. you may have a point lindsey, — you may want transparency, yet so do the MAJORITY of americans , ask trump to appear alongside him & bring along his tax returns which he PROMISED 3 years ago, now that would be fair.

  42. PURHAPS LINDSEY GRAHAM SHOULD MOVE TO HAVE THE SENATE VOTE ON CANCELLING THE IMPEACHMENT ,AS IT WAS BASE ON RUBBISH INFORMATION, WHY WOULD HE SUGGEST ON HAVING IT IN AN OPEN FORUM ,FOR THE PUBLIC TO SEE. IT SHOULD BE DESOLVED,WHY LET THE DEMOCRATS HAVE MORE TIME TO PURSUE THIS IMPEACHMENT CRAP. IF LINDSEY GRAHAM THINKS ANY DEMOCRAT IS A EQUAL THEN HE SHOULD RE THINK THE PROGRAM.. DISAPPOINTED AGAIN IN LINDSEY THINKING PROCESS, I AM GLAD HE HAS LEFT THE MILITARY, !! OPINION

  43. Nancy Polosi ,Adam Shiff and many others must be in serious trouble to fight so hard to ruin President Donald Trump ,many laws have be broken by people in high places treason is on the wind .fear is in the mind of the law breakers OPINION!
