Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham told reporters he doesn’t think former President Trump would come testify at the Senate impeachment trial next week. Sen. Graham calls request for Trump to testify, a “political, showboat move”
He added: “It’s just a nightmare for the country to do this… it’s just a political, show boat move. They didn’t call him in the House.”
The South Carolina Republican also said he spoke to Trump a few days ago, and that he’s in “pretty good spirits… trying to get adjusted to his new life” and that he’s “very focused on 2022” to help the GOP retake the House and/or Senate.
