Lindsey Graham: No Quid Pro Quo With 'Incoherent' Ukraine Policy

Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., said Wednesday that his reading of the impeachment transcripts proved that the Trump administration's policy toward Ukraine was "incoherent" and "incapable of forming a quid pro quo."

"I've read the transcript for myself," Graham told reporters on Capitol Hill, according to a tweet posted by CBS News Radio reporter Steven Portnoy. "I made up my own mind.

He noted that Ukrainian envoy Kurt Volker, in closed-door testimony last month, "said there was no quid pro quo," and that Gordon Sondland, the Trump administration's ambassador to the European Union, "has changed his testimony to say he presumes there was."

"What I can tell you about the Trump policy toward the Ukraine: It was incoherent," Graham said. "It depends on who you talk to.

"They seem to be incapable of forming a quid pro quo."

The senator, who has sponsored a resolution calling for due process and other protections for President Donald Trump amid the Democratic House investigation, then ripped the probe.

"I find the whole process to be a sham — and I'm not going to legitimize it."

House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff, D-Calif., said Wednesday that two more transcripts would be released later in the day and that public hearings would begin next week.
