Lindsey Graham Just Set Impeachment Trial Date,
Graham said tonight on Hannity that the Pelosi impeachment dam has broken and the Senate will take up the impeachment trial next week:
Graham’s comments come at the very end of his interview with Hannity. Here’s what he said:
The Pelosi impeachment dam has broken. We’ve had five Democrats come out today and say send over the articles. You said it was urgent. If you believe it to be urgent, send it to the Senate for disposition. She’s losing Democrats in the Senate. The impeachment dam of Nancy Pelosi is about to crack.
Hats off to Mitch McConnell for playing this very well. We’ll take the trial up next week.
Also he says this with such confidence that I’m not sure whether he knows something that hasn’t been reported yet or whether this is just a prediction. I guess we’ll find out next week.
In related news, Graham hit back at both Mike Lee and Rand Paul today for their overreaction to the Iran briefing:

Pelosi’s Leverage Over Set Senate Impeachment Trial Is “Nonexistent”
On wednesday, Senator Mitch McConnell spoke about the impeachment process on the Senate floor, making clear that Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s leverage over the Senate’s trial is “nonexistent” and that there “will be no haggling with the House” about the process and rules of the Senate trial.
There will be no haggling with the House over Senate procedure. We will not cede our authority to try this impeachment. The House Democrats’ turn is over. The Senate has made its decision. This is for the Senate, and the Senate only, to decide.

Also Multiple Democrats have begun to turn against Pelosi’s strategy to hold the articles of impeachment indefinitely.
The tide began to turn after Democrats failed to secure the votes needed for Schumer’s demand of witnesses at the offset.
McConnell was able to convince swing Senators Susan Collins and Lisa Murkowski to reject Schumer’s demand.
