While supporting the legitimacy of Biden’s victory and saying he would attend Wednesday’s inauguration – “I think it’s important that I introduce myself” – Graham predicted Bartiromo that Democratic priorities would make Americans nostalgic for President Donald Trump and his supporters in Congress.
“If they do what they talk about,” Graham said. “Republicans will come back roaring in 2022, we will take back the House, we will take back the Senate, and in just a few short months President Trump will be looked at very differently from what he is today.”
The senator, a strong Trump ally for much of his presidency, spent much of the interview raging over Trump’s latest impeachment. “To my fellow Republicans,” he said, “please don’t justify and legitimize what the House has done and defend the Constitution like we did on January 6. Stop it before it stops. I hope every Republican rejects President Trump’s second indictment. “
He urged Biden to speak up and slow down the impeachment process: “If you don’t oppose President Trump’s impeachment after he leaves, you are an incredibly weak figure.”
