Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) lamented to Fox News' Sean Hannity on Tuesday that if Democrats call witnesses for the second impeachment trial of Donald Trump, then it's going to go on for months because then Republicans will want to call witnesses.
It prompted responses from viewers who noted that they actually do want to hear what the witnesses have to say on both sides of the aisle. It's unclear what witnesses the Republicans could call to discount what many saw on video.

Oh no! Threatening due diligence?! looking for information? That actually sounds fair and reasonable...
Sadly, that's not what he's saying. @LindseyGrahamSC is threatening to waste time and distract with more disinformation.
If truth is on your side, discovery is a good thing.
