Former Attorney General Jeff Sessions called on moderate Republicans to "toughen up" and not hesitate to decide whether to defend President Donald Trump during the impeachment trial in the Senate.

Sessions made his comments Wednesday during an interview on the Fox News Show, "The Ingraham Angle."

"It's time for them to toughen up," he said, after Ingraham mentioned Republican Sens. Mitt Romney of Utah, Lisa Murkowski of Alaska, and Susan Collins of Maine.

"There is not an impeachment case. This is a terrible, terrible abuse of the awesome impeachment power, and the first time this has ever happened in our history, and it should not be done, and so the Republicans need to think clearly. They need to call it what it is, an abuse of the process."

Sessions, who is seeking to regain his old Senate seat in Alabama, said if the Senate decides to allow witnesses to testify, former Vice President Joe Biden's son Hunter should be one of the first people called.

"If we go to witnesses, he is absolutely relevant to the president's concern that something may have been covered up when the prosecutor in Ukraine that was investigating this company [Burisma Holdings] was removed," Sessions said.
