Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) said Wednesday, Oct. 9, he is sending a letter to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) warning that Republicans in the Senate would not impeach President Trump over his call to Ukraine.

In an interview on Fox News “Fox & Friends,” Graham said he would request other Senate Republicans to sign a letter to Pelosi stating they “do not believe the transcript of the phone call between the president and the Ukraine is an impeachable offense,” according to The Hill.

“They’re about to destroy the nation for no good reason,” Graham said. “And I want Nancy Pelosi to know that Republican senators are not going to impeach this president based on this transcript so she can stop now before she destroys the country,” Graham continued.

The White House on Tuesday sent a letter to Pelosi and the House chairmen overseeing the investigation, saying it would refuse to cooperate further with the probe.

In the letter, the White House said Democrats were pursuing a “constitutionally invalid” investigation of a duly elected president.

Pelosi immediately responded Trump administration by a statement, warning “The White House should be warned that continued efforts to hide the truth of the President’s abuse of power from the American people will be regarded as further evidence of obstruction.”

Graham blasted House Democrats on Wednesday saying they couldn’t “care less about fairness.”

“You have to have a vote to make it legitimate,” he added.

Graham, who chairs the Senate Judiciary Committee, announced on Tuesday that he is going to invite Rudy Giuliani, the president’s lawyer, to testify before his panel.

“Given the House of Representatives’ behavior, it is time for the Senate to inquire about corruption and other improprieties involving Ukraine. Therefore I will offer to Mr. Giuliani the opportunity to come before the Senate Judiciary Committee to inform the committee of his concerns,” he tweeted.
