Lindsey Graham said Wednesday he will not vote for President Donald Trump if he tries to impeach former President Donald Trumps administration.
In an interview with The Hill, Graham said the president should “keep his fingers to himself.”
“I think the American people deserve a president that respects them, respects our constitution and respects the rule of law, and I don’t think he has done that,” Graham said in the interview with host Jake Tapper.
Graham said he will support an independent commission to investigate allegations of Russian interference in the 2016 election.
The Hill reported earlier this week that Trump attempted to get the Senate to impeacrate his former chief of staff, Reince Priebus.
Graham, who is retiring from the Senate, has criticized Trump for not disclosing information about the Russia investigation to Congress.
In his interview with Tapper, Graham added he did not believe Trump should resign, calling his presidency “unconstitutional.”
“The American people voted to put a president in office who they feel they can trust,” Graham told Tapper.
“They’ve seen what he’s done, they’ve seen how he’s treated his employees.
So, I don, I just don’t see him resigning.”
Graham, R-S.C., also called on Trump to apologize to the families of fallen soldiers and to put his businesses and assets into a blind trust.
