Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) on Saturday pledged to help impeachment “die quickly” in the Senate as it becomes increasingly likely that the House will vote to impeach President Trump, leading to a Senate trial.

“This thing will come to the Senate, and it will die quickly, and I will do everything I can to make it die quickly,” he told CNN while at the Doha Forum in Qatar. 

“I am trying to give a pretty clear signal I have made up my mind. I’m not trying to pretend to be a fair juror here,” Graham added. “What I see coming, happening today is just a partisan nonsense.”

Asked whether it was appropriate for the president to ask a foreign government for help, such as when President Trump asked Ukraine’s president to investigate former Vice PresidentJoe Biden and his son, Graham said he believed so.
