Christian evangelist Franklin Graham said on Tuesday that the Democrats’ ongoing impeachment effort against President Trump is “dividing our country even further” and added that Trump’s enemies are hellbent on “destroying him & his presidency regardless of the damage it does to our nation.”
The House Intelligence Committee kicked off Tuesday’s public impeachment hearings with both Jennifer Williams, an aide to Vice President Mike Pence, and Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman, White House National Security Council (NSC) director of European Affairs.
The hearing featured a number of heated moments, one which included an interruption from Chairman Adam Schiff (D-CA) stressing his desire to “protect the whistleblower” despite both Schiff and Vindman claiming that they do not know his or her identity.
Graham weighed in on the ongoing public impeachment hearing on Tuesday, noting that Trump’s enemies are “focused on destroying him & his presidency regardless of the damage it does to our nation” and urging Americans to pray for the president and his family “as the Democrats in Washington continue to try to destroy him & drag his name through the mud.”
It makes me sick to my stomach. We’re now in the 2nd week of the impeachment inquiry & this is just dividing our country even further. Pres. @realDonaldTrump’s enemies are focused on destroying him & his presidency regardless of the damage it does to our nation. Let’s look at Pres. @realDonaldTrump’s record. The US economy is better than it has ever been, the stock market is at its highest levels, Trump has made key conservative judicial appointments as promised, unemployment is the lowest it has been in 50+ yrs. Should I continue? Pray for President @realDonaldTrump & his family as the Democrats in Washington continue to try to destroy him & drag his name through the mud. Everyone is benefiting from his policies—even those who want to tear him down.
