Graham to Pelosi: ‘You Can’t Be Speaker… And Senate Maj. Leader At The Same Time’

Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham (R-SC) delivered his Christmas message to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) Monday telling her that under the current system “You can’t be Speaker of the House and the Senate Majority Leader at the same time.”

Although she was quick to pass two articles of impeachment last week in the House charging President Donald Trump with abuse of power and obstruction of congress, Pelosi is holding off on passing the torch to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) and his fellow Republicans for a Senate trial. If she does, she said last week that the trial will be ‘unfair.’

“The Constitution outrage by Speaker Pelosi needs to end.. She is trying to run the Senate and deny President Donald Trump his day in court after the House’s sham impeachment process,” Graham wrote on Twitter Monday.

“Stop playing games with the Constitution. In our system, you can’t be the Speaker of the House and the Senate Majority Leader at the same time. The Senate will decide how we dispose of this sham created by the House,” Graham wrote, “If this continues into 2020, the Senate needs to strike back, standing up for our rights and ending this debacle.”
