WASHINGTON – Sen. Lindsey Graham, the chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, told reporters on Tuesday he does not plan to read the newly released transcripts of testimony in the House impeachment inquiry, calling the entire process an illegitimate “sham.”  “I’ve written the whole process off,” Graham said, according to CBS News and The Associated Press.

“I’ve written the whole process off,” Graham said, according to CBS News and The Associated Press. “I think this is a bunch of B.S.”

The South Carolina Republican had previously demanded the testimony be made public. He has been a leading critic of the closed-door hearings being held by the Democratically-controlled committees conducting the initial investigation, calling it “a star-chamber-type inquiry.”
