Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) reacted to the House impeaching President Donald Trump by predicting that the articles will meet a “quick demise” when it reaches the Senate.

Graham had previously implied he and his Republican colleagues would seek to hold a swift trial.

The South Carolina Republican stated he is “ready to go,” adding that his “goal” is to “end this as soon as possible," during an interview with Fox News.

“I don’t want to give it any legitimacy because it’s a crock,” he told America’s Newsroom.

In October, Graham (R-SC) warned Nancy Pelosi that the Democrats' push to impeach Trump would not make it through the Senate.

The Republican said the GOP-controlled Senate is "not going to impeach this president" over his phone call with the president of Ukraine.

“My goal is to end this as soon as possible for the good of the country because I think it’s a danger to the presidency to legitimize this.”

Following eight hours of debate, the House of Representatives voted to impeach a sitting president, charging him with abusing the powers of the presidency and having obstructed Congress.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said during a press conference:

“Dec. 18, a great day for the Constitution of the United States, a sad one for America that the president’s recluse activities necessitated our having to introduce articles of impeachment."

Article one charged Trump with abuse of powers.

Article two charged the president with obstruction of Congress.

The White House issued a statement slamming the vote, describing it as “one of the most shameful political episodes” in U.S. history.

“Without receiving a single Republican vote, and without providing any proof of wrongdoing, Democrats pushed illegitimate articles of impeachment against the President through the House of Representatives,” said press secretary Stephanie Grisham.

“Democrats have chosen to proceed on this partisan basis in spite of the fact that the president did nothing wrong.
