Lindsay Graham predicts impeachment trial for Kamala Harris

Staunch Trump supporter Lindsay Graham on Sunday threatened that Vice President Kamala Harris would be impeached if the Republicans retake control of the House of Representatives.

Newsweek reports that Graham spoke on Fox News as he looked forward to the 2022 midterm elections.

The opposition party tends to pick up seats in midterm elections. Right now the Democrats control the House by 222 to 211. The Republicans managed to narrow the gap between the two parties in November despite losing the presidency after they picked up several seats, including two in Southern California where Korean Americans Michelle Steel and Young Kim won seats.

“If you use this model, I don’t know how Kamala Harris doesn’t get impeached if the Republicans take over the House, because she actually bailed out rioters and one of the rioters went back to the streets and broke somebody’s head open,” the South Carolina Republican said. “So we’ve opened Pandora’s Box here, and I’m sad for the country.”

Graham appears to be referring to a tweet sent out by Harris in June supporting the Minnesota Freedom Fund, a fund which assists people who need cash for bail.

This is not the first time Harris’ tweet has come up

The Washington Post reports that few people involved in the Black Lives Matter protest who were arrested needed the fund. Of the 167 protesters released, only 10 needed bail, and in most cases, the bail was less than $100.

“MFF believes that every individual who has been arrested by the police is innocent until proven guilty, and if a judge deems them eligible for bail, they should not have to wait in jail simply because they don’t have the same income or resources as others with more privilege,” director Greg Lewin told The Fact Checker. He said that MFF spent $250,000 in early June on bail actions, including the $75,000 for Jaleel Stallings who faced attempted murder charges , but that figure also includes non-protest cases.

Graham’s prediction comes just a day after the Senate voted to acquit Donald Trump in his second impeachment trial.
