Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.), a juror in President Trump’s impeachment trial, is offering free legal advice to his counsel, if they want to accept it.
So far, the House impeachment managers have “done a good job” of “painting … a tapestry, taking a series of events and telling a story,” Graham told reporters on Thursday. When Trump’s legal team starts delivering his defense on Saturday, they will “start pulling on the threads.”
Graham also thinks Trump’s attorneys will need to shift the focus to former Vice President Joe Biden and his son, Hunter Biden. Hunter Biden was on the board of Burisma, a Ukrainian gas company, and is in the center of a debunked conspiracy theory being peddled by Trump allies, including Rudy Giuliani. Graham said Trump’s team needs to “really go hard at the idea that when they tell you there’s not a scintilla of evidence, groundless, baseless, phony accusations regarding the Bidens, I would challenge that very hard.”
