Graham Warns Democrats: Impeachment Talks Will Only Get Trump Re-Elected
South Carolina Republican U.S. Senator fires warning shot to Democrats
Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., has warned Democrats pushing for president Donald Trump's impeachment will only lead to his re-election in 2020.
The Democrats have been focusing on Trump's impeachment despite the conclusion of Mueller's Russia investigation showing there was no collusion.
Speaking with Fox News' Jeanine Pirro on Saturday's installment of "Justice with Judge Jeanine, Grham said:
"To my Democratic colleagues in the House, if you bring impeachment after [Special Counsel Robert] Mueller issued his report ... then it's going to blow up in your face."
"You're being unfair to the president, and he's going to get re-elected," he said.
"She knows that impeachment would be political suicide because there's no reason to impeach the president," Graham said during an interview on "Fox News Sunday."
On the subject of growing tensions with Iran, Graham praised the presdient for pulling out of the Obama-era Iran nuclear deal and for applying sanctions against the country.

Yesterday, the South Carolina Republican U.S. Senator didn't hold back as he suggested sinking the Iranian Navy and attacking one of Iran’s refineries.
Graham urged Trump to stand tough and not let Iran flex its muscle over the Strait of Hormuz.
The waterway separates Iran and the United Arab Emirates and is 21 miles across at its narrowest point.
The strait is used to ship more than 22 million barrels of oil and products per day in the first half of 2018.
"To President Trump, do not let them take over the Strait of Hormuz," Graham said.
"Keep the pressure on, and if they continue to do this, sink their navy like Ronald Reagan did back in the '80s."
"He has put Iran on the run. He's taken on China. He's got [Venezuelan President Nicolas] Maduro on the ropes," Graham said.
"I love this man's foreign policy."
