Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., warned if the Senate seeks witnesses for President Donald Trump’s impeachment trial, as Democrats are demanding, it’ll toss the country into “chaos.”

In an interview on Fox News Channel's “Sunday Morning Futures,” Graham also predicted the president would be acquitted at the Senate trial.

“If we seek witnesses, then we'll throw the country into chaos,” Graham warned.

He added every time Democrats go after Trump, it backfires.

“Mueller came after him for two years,” he said. “There was no there, there. He was stronger after Mueller. He will get acquitted because this is a railroad job by the House. He will be stronger after impeachment than he was after Mueller.”

“This is the boomerang party,” Graham said of Democrats.

“Every time they to after Trump it hurts them,” he continued. They throw rocks at Trump, they get hit. Mueller investigates Trump. What happens? The FBI, Department of Justice falls apart. They try to accuse Trump of corruption in the Ukraine and we find out that conflicts of interests by Joe Biden really stink.”

He also said the House Democrats got too political.

“When it came to removing the president, their arguments became very political, very shrill and while [Rep.] Adam Schiff [D-Calif.] did a good job of presenting the facts, and at times with the law.

“When it came to removing the president… more audition of a future Senate run than it was compelling.”
