GOP Lawmakers Not on Board With Lindsey Graham’s Proposed Biden Investigations

With the impeachment trial of Donald Trump nearing its completion, some Republicans have their eyes on retaliation. Among these lawmakers is Lindsey Graham who recently discussed the possibility of calling Hunter Biden to answer questions before the Senate Judiciary Committee.

And there are certainly some Conservative representatives that would like to see that happen. According to a report from The Daily Beast, though, there are also plenty of Republicans who don’t feel that this is the right time for vengeance.

On Sunday, Graham said of a potential investigation into political opponents, “You should expect us to do this. If we don’t do it, we’re letting you down.”

Rand Paul, who is never shy about airing his grievances was asked about the possibility of calling Biden. “I think we should all hold hands in a big circle, sing Kumbaya, and quit all the stupid investigations,” said the Kansas senator. “We can do these endless recriminations forever and ever if we want… I think people are tired of the damn impeachment. Why can’t we start talking about some things we could do to help the country, you know?”

Senator James Lankford agreed with Paul. He told the Daily Beast, “I don’t think there should be a tremendous, long-term protracted something unless something is there.”

At the end of the day, however, only one opinion is likely to matter. If Donald Trump asks Graham to investigate the Bidens, he likely will.
