Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) announced on Fox News Tuesday night that he intends to introduce a Senate resolution condemning the House's impeachment inquiry against President Trump.

Speaking to Sean Hannity, Graham said the inquiry is "unconstitutional" and "illegitimate," and his resolution would argue that articles of impeachment should be "dismissed in the Senate without a trial." Graham stated that he is worried about future presidents, and "we cannot allow ... this president to be impeached based on an inquiry in the House that's never been voted upon, that does not allow the president to confront the witnesses against him, call witnesses on his behalf, and cross examine people who are accusing him of misdeeds."

Graham told Hannity he is "insisting that Donald Trump be given the same rights as every American has if you're given a parking ticket, to confront the witnesses against you — can't be based on hearsay." Graham is a staunch Trump defender, whose thoughts on impeachment seem to depend on the person in the White House.
