Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., said Sunday he has “nothing but disdain” for the House impeachment process, has made up his mind and is “ready to vote.”

In an interview on CBS News’ “Face The Nation” aired Sunday, Graham, a close ally of Trump, declared, “I want it to end.”

“I have nothing but disdain for this,” he said. “What you’re doing in the House is bad for the presidency.”

“I think this whole thing is a crock,” he added. “You’re weaponizing impeachment and I hate it.”

He said “what’s best for the country is to get this thing over with.”

“I clearly made up my mind, I’m not trying to hide the fact that I have disdain for the accusations in the process, so I don’t need any witnesses.”

“I am ready to vote on the underlying articles, I don’t really need to hear a lot of witnesses,” he added. 

Graham also pushed back on Joe Biden’s criticism of Graham for backing President Donald Trump’s request for Ukraine to investigate him.

“I love Joe Biden, but none of us are above scrutiny,” he said. “I'd like to knock all this off and get back on governing the country.”
