House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and her House Democrats hope to remove President Donald Trump from office — or at least weaken his presidency through impeachment.
But she’s in for a harsh awakening, says Sen. Lindsey Graham
According to Graham, R-S.C., just the opposite is about to happen as Trump emerges stronger than ever and in prime position to win reelection.
Graham predicted that impeachment will backfire, badly, within a matter of weeks – and possibly even days.
As nearly every political observer has pointed out, there is virtually no chance the GOP-controlled Senate will convict Trump on the charges of abuse of power and obstruction of Congress.
In fact, there may not even be enough votes to call a single witness, which would ensure a quick end to the proceedings.
And Graham says Trump will emerge from it with renewed political power.
“The best thing for the American people is to end this as soon as possible,” Graham told Sean Hannity on Fox News. “On February the fourth when the president comes into the house chamber to deliver the State of the Union, he will have been acquitted by the Senate, [he will be] the strongest he has been politically.”
Graham offered a timeline of how the proceedings will unfold.

First, the Democrats who ceremoniously delivered the impeachment articles to the Senate in a made-for-TV spectacle will get to make their case – the same one they’ve made in grandstanding speeches and endless hearings over the past five months.
But they won’t have an unlimited amount of time anymore.
Graham said they will get about 24 hours – essentially, three days, perhaps four if they stretch it out.
Then, Trump’s defenders will make their case for acquittal.
“I hope this is done in about a week and I predict a bipartisan acquittal of President Trump,” Graham said.
That led to his bold prediction about what will happen next – after the acquittal.

“When it comes to Donald Trump, the best is yet to come,” he said.
He may be correct, too.
Trump’s State of the Union could essentially become a victory speech in the very chamber where he was impeached – and, now acquitted, he could lay out his America First agenda.
“The State of the Union address and the weeks leading up to it will provide the administration even more opportunities to offer a robust, forward-looking agenda,” Karl Rove wrote in the Wall Street Journal. “All of this would strike a powerful contrast with the Democrats, who wasted 2019 on impeachment.”
Trump could challenge the left to either work with him or continue to stonewall with endless investigations… knowing they’ll likely choose the latter.
Insiders whisper they may even try to impeach him again on new charges.
But Graham predicted that move would backfire.
“Most Americans zealously guard the right to pick their own leaders,” he said. “I think they will hold it against politicians trying to take that away.”
Then, Graham uttered a line that will no doubt chill liberals to the core.
“We will get the House back, the Senate majority,” he predicted. “And President Trump will be reelected.”
Graham has come full circle on President Donald Trump.
Once one of the biggest Trump critics, Graham predicted doom for the Republican Party under Trump.
“If we nominate Trump, we will get destroyed,” he said in 2016. “And we will deserve it.”
Now, however, he’s done one of the rarest things in politics.
He’s essentially admitted he was wrong and turned into one of the president’s staunchest allies on Capitol Hill – something he’ll need to beat impeachment and bounce back afterward.
