Rep. Jim Banks (R-IN) has contacted Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham (R-SC) to “reassess” his impeachment method and increase his defense of President Donald Trump.
” I am advising you to reassess your plan for the impeachment trial,” Banks wrote in a letter to Graham. “Take your time, find out the facts, and show the American people how this all started.”
While he declared his assistance to “investigate the detectives,” Banks also insisted that Graham overlook the “fast trial” method and look into other choices. Banks composed:
We require to take our time and find out precisely how Congress found itself in the current scenario: poised to impeach a president on a totally partisan vote without any proof and flimsy charges right before his re-election quote.
It is immediate we fight fire with fire and inform them enough is enough. Home Republicans have actually done all they can to push back and expose their motives to the American people, quickly it will be at your doorstep.
This is bigger than you, it’s larger than me and it’s larger than Donald Trump. This is a fight in between the will of individuals versus an elite class of Washington politicians and bureaucrats who believe they can reverse a constitutional election.
Banks closed his letter by prompting Graham to take his time and “end this at last.”
” It’s time to end this at last,” Banks concluded in his letter. “That’s why I am prompting you to reevaluate your plan for the impeachment trial. Take your time, find out the realities, and show the American people how this all started.”
Banks’ letter to Graham follows the South Carolina senator rebuffed Banks’ recent suggestion to subpoena Home Intelligence Chairman Adam Schiff’s (D-CA) phone records.
