Lindsey Graham says there’s no ‘smoking gun’ behind Biden impeachment inquiry: ‘If there was, we’d be talking about it’

During a wide-ranging interview on NBC this Sunday, Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) said he has yet to see any convincing evidence of serious wrongdoing behind the GOP’s impeachment inquiry into President Joe Biden.

The U.S. House’s recently voted to launch an inquiry into the allegations that Biden corruptly benefitted from an influence peddling scheme that was based on his family’s foreign business dealings.

NBC anchor Kristen Welker asked Graham about previous comments from Sen.Chuck Grassley(R-IA), who said that he hasn’t seen evidence to prove Biden is “guilty of anything” in regards to any financial dealings with his son, Hunter.

“I haven’t really been paying that much attention to it,” said Graham. “They have to prove that President Biden somehow financially benefited from the business enterprises of Hunter Biden.”

“Have they done it yet in your mind?” Welker asked.

“If there were a smoking gun, I think we’d be talking about it,” Graham replied.

“But you know, the narrative that Hunter Biden presented is falling apart,” Graham continued. “They added that Joe Biden knew nothing about the business dealings falling apart. I’m not worried about impeaching the president right now.”
