Lindsey Graham Rages: If Pelosi Doesn’t Send Us The Articles, She Is Committing “Constitutional Extortion”

NBC News reports:

Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) on Thursday said that House Democrats would be committing “Constitutional extortion” if they did not allow the Senate to promptly act on approved articles of impeachment against President Trump.

Following the House votes to impeach the president on abuse of power and obstruction of Congress, Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) declined to say when, or even if, the lower chamber would deliver the articles to the Senate.

Some Democrats have urged the Speaker to consider holding the articles as part of an effort to gain concessions, such as additional witnesses and documents, for the trial.
