Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., said Tuesday it would be an impeachable offense for President Trump to fire special counsel Robert Mueller in an attempt to end the investigation looking into Russian interference in the 2016 election.
“Probably so, if he did it without cause, yeah,” Graham told radio host Hugh Hewitt when asked if firing Mueller would be an impeachable offense. “Well, I think what the president will have done is stopped an investigation in whether or not his campaign colluded with the Russians, what effect the Russians had on the 2016 campaign. I can’t see it being anything other than a corrupt purpose.”
Graham argued that Republicans would likely feel the same way as Democrats if the script were flipped and former President Barack Obama ended this kind of investigation.
