“There’s not going to be a process where the Democrats get their witnesses and the president gets shut out.”
But, Graham says he’s about getting it over with and not drawing things out with a lot of witnesses either way.
“I want this trial to get over with as quick as possible. I want the people of the United States to pick the next president, not a court of impeachment.”
He also unloaded on Speaker Pelosi.

Meanwhile, Democrats are suddenly in no rush whatsoever to put an end to this process.
It is imperative that the Senate hear from first-hand witnesses and have access to additional evidence in the impeachment trial. We must clearly show the American people this trial is a pursuit of truth—not a cover-up.

All witnesses presumably includes Hunter Biden, who Sherrod Brown (D-Ohio) said he would be “fine” with being called.
Democratic Sen. Sherrod Brown says he would be "fine" with Republicans calling Hunter Biden to testify: “We take a position that we want to hear from witnesses… I understand both sides get to call witnesses… I think many Republicans think that’s a distraction” #CNNSOTU pic.twitter.com/x0gWEybYqs

Things sure moved quickly in the House, but now we need to take our time?
