Graham says Pelosi has "orchestrated the church of holy hell" against Trump

Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) said on "Fox News Sunday" that when it comes to President Trump, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi "may pray for him privately, but she's orchestrated the church of holy hell from the time Trump has been sworn in until now."

Graham proposes changing Senate rules if Pelosi doesn't send articles of impeachment

Senate Judiciary Chairman Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) said on Fox News' "Sunday Morning Futures" that if House Speaker Nancy Pelosi does not transmit the articles of impeachment this week, he will seek to change the Senate's rules so that it can proceed to a trial without them.

Why it matters: Graham's comments follow a similar threat by Sen. Josh Hawley (R-Mo.) last week and reflect growing Republican frustration with Pelosi's decision to withhold the articles until the Senate agrees to a fair trial. There are currently 53 Republican senators, and changing the rules would only need a 51-vote majority.
