President Donald Trump will receive "a bipartisan acquittal" in his impeachment trial and will be "the strongest he has been politically" when he delivers the State of the Union, Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., predicted.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., signed two articles of impeachment against Trump on Wednesday, which were then marched to the Senate by a group of Democrats. The trial began in the Senate at noon on Thursday.

"The best thing for the American people is to end this as soon as possible," Graham told Fox News' Sean Hannity on Wednesday. "On February the fourth when the president comes into the House chamber to deliver the State of the Union, he will have been acquitted by the Senate [and will be] the strongest he has been politically."

He said later, "I hope this is done in about a week and I predict a bipartisan acquittal of President Trump."

The senator added that the impeachment trial will lead to a "backlash" against the Democrat Party in the 2020 elections.

"By the time the trial is over and we have an election in November, there will be a backlash ... I will tell you why," Graham said. "Most Americans zealously guard the right to pick their own leaders. I think they will hold it against politicians trying to take that away."

He predicted, "We will get the House back, the Senate majority ... and President Trump will be re-elected."
