Republican South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham let loose Sunday on House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, saying that she had “orchestrated the trial of holy hell” against President Donald Trump.
Graham sat down with “Fox News Sunday” anchor Chris Wallace to discuss the upcoming impeachment trial and the possibility that witnesses would be called, and the topic of conversation turned to Speaker Pelosi.
Wallace began the segment by asking Graham about plans for the Senate trial, noting comments from several Republicans who had voiced the desire to get through it as quickly as possible. “How do you respond to the Democratic impeachment managers who say this is just a rush to get this over with?” he asked.
Graham immediately turned the argument on Speaker Pelosi, saying that he liked her but that she was not doing right by the president. “I like Nancy Pelosi. I have known her for years. She is a very religious person,” Graham said. “When it comes to Donald Trump, Nancy Pelosi may pray privately, but she’s orchestrated the trial of holy hell.”
