During a keynote speech given at a fundraising dinner at Mar-a-Lago, Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) made a pitch for President Donald Trump to put former House Oversight Committee chairman Trey Gowdy (R-SC) on the Supreme Court when the next seat opens up.

During a speech where Graham also vowed to open another investigation of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton — as the crowd cheered “Lock her up” — Graham singled out Gowdy who was also in attendance at the gala and had been seen talking to the president.

According to the report, Trump stood on the sidelines while Graham effusively praised him.

Politico reports Graham “gave a shout-out to Gowdy, who represented Graham’s state of South Carolina in the House until earlier this year. When Graham jokingly asked the crowd whether they wanted to see Gowdy on the Supreme Court, the guests applauded.”

Graham also joked about Trump’s decision to move the U.S. embassy in Israel to Jerusalem, telling the laughing crowd, “There will be a Trump hotel there in 10 years.”

The House of Representatives is expected to pass articles of impeachment on Wednesday, setting up a Senate trial in the new year.
