Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham says he doesn't think there's anything impeachable in the transcript of a July phone call between President Donald Trump and Ukraine's leader in which Trump asked for "a favor" while withholding military aid.

The South Carolina senator said Wednesday he's going to ask his Republican colleagues to sign a letter to Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi saying, "We do not believe the transcript of the phone call between the president and the Ukraine is an impeachable offense."

House Democrats launched an impeachment inquiry focusing partly on whether Trump abused his powers and sought help from a foreign government to undermine Democratic rival Joe Biden and help his own reelection effort. Pelosi says such actions would be a "betrayal" of Trump's oath of office.

Graham told Fox News Channel's "Fox & Friends" he wants Pelosi to know Republican senators "are not gonna impeach this president based on this transcript."
