Lindsey Graham wants to "deep-six" Trumpís impeachment trial
Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) told Axios: "I'm not in the camp of calling a bunch of witnesses [in President Trump's impeachment trial]. ... I think as an American, the best thing we do is deep-six this thing."

The big picture: Many Senate Republicans told Axios that they trust Majority Leader Mitch McConnell's judgment on whether to accelerate the vote to acquit the president.
  • "Senate Republicans are coalescing around a strategy of holding a short impeachment trial early next year that would include no witnesses," The Washington Post reports.
  • Why it matters: That "could clash with President Trumpís desire to stage a public defense of his actions toward Ukraine that would include testimony the White House believes would damage its political rivals."

Oh pleasepleaseplease let this be one of the times when Donnie stamps his foot and says, "No, you're not the boss of me!" to Mitch. Let him stage a public defense and try his best to damage his political rivals. Maybe Mitch will ditch the proceedings and Donnie can go on a whistle-stop tour of the country shouting his defense from every "Middlesex [as it were] village and farm." He will be following in the horse steps of patriot Paul Revere, warning the country of impending doom.
