U.S. Republican Senator Graham seeks quick impeachment trial without new witnesses

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The Republican chairman of the U.S. Senate Judiciary Committee said on Wednesday he would want any impeachment trial in the Senate to be quick and without new witnesses.

“When it gets here, my goal is to have as short a trial as possible,” Senator Lindsey Graham told reporters. “I am not going to support witnesses being called for by the president. I am not going to support witnesses being called for by (Democratic leader) Senator Schumer.”
