Graham: Impeachment Is 'Political Suicide' for Pelosi's Democrats

("Fox News Sunday")

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's job is "very much at risk" if she decides to go along with the wishes of her Democratic caucus and pursue the impeachment of President Donald Trump, Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., said Sunday.

In an interview on "Fox News Sunday," Graham said the California Democrat "is riding a bucking wild bronco," noting "70% of the Democratic base throughout America wants President Trump impeached."

"She knows that impeachment would be political suicide because there's no reason to impeach the president, so she's trying to keep the party intact," he said. "If she goes down the impeachment road, Republicans take back the House, we keep the Senate, President Trump gets re-elected, but her job is very much at risk . . . She's going to be driven toward impeachment. If she goes down that road, it will be suicide for the Democratic Party."

Graham also praised Trump for being the only U.S. president who has gotten "Kim Jong Un's attention," though he believes North Korean is trying "run out the clock on President Trump."

"I'm glad the president is engaging him," he said. "All those before President Trump failed on their watch and President Trump has finally got Kim Jong Un's attention."

"But I'm not naive about this. I think they're trying to run out the clock on President Trump. The only way Kim will give up his nuclear weapons if he believes he's better off without them . . . What we do in Venezuela and what we do in Iran will make a difference as to how Kim reacts to us in North Korea."
