Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) took to Twitter on Friday to highlight the difference between prosecution and persecution in relation to the way Democrats are treating President Donald Trump amid impeachment.

Graham’s tweets come as House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) reiterated her plan to not make any more moves with impeachment until she knows the level of “fairness” with the Senate trial rules and Senator Chuck Schumer (D-NY) calling for witnesses in the Senate impeachment trial.

“What’s the difference between prosecution and persecution?” Senator Graham asked.

“▶️ When @SpeakerPelosi drives a highly partisan process devoid of due process denying the president his day in court and trampling on the constitutional separation of powers,” Graham wrote.

“▶️ When the Senate Minority Leader insists on denying President @realDonaldTrump the ability to go to court and exercise Executive Privilege regarding Senate Democrats’ witness lists,” the Senate Judiciary Chairman explained.

“📌 @SpeakerPelosi end this debacle and send the Articles of Impeachment to the Senate. 📌 @SenSchumer stop playing games with the presidency,” he insisted. (Continued Below)

On Tuesday, Senator Graham had tweeted: “It’s time for @SpeakerPelosi, who claimed impeachment was a national imperative, to fish or cut bait. Commit to sending the Articles of Impeachment to the Senate consistent with Constitutional obligations.”

“If she refuses, Senate Republicans should take matters into our own hands. We are in charge of the Senate — not Pelosi or Schumer. Speaker Pelosi’s actions are an affront to the Constitution, the Senate, and denies President @realDonaldTrump his day in court. This case should mirror the process used in the Clinton impeachment and should come to an end in weeks, not months,” he added.

On Sunday, Senator Graham also told host Maria Bartiromo on Fox News‘ “Sunday Morning Futures”: “And to this impeachment debacle, to my Democratic colleagues, impeachment is a dead cat. Stop playing with it. Bury it. It’s going nowhere. Quit violating the Constitution. Give the president his day in court and let’s get this behind us so we can talk about things people really care about in this country.” [Emphasis added]. (Continued Below)
