Despite Democrats constant proclamations that Hunter Biden, who was - unarguably - paid millions to serve on the board of a Ukrainian gas company, is irrelevant to the impeachment charges against Trump and has no knowledge of the president’s conduct related to Ukraine, GOP Senator Lindsey Graham vehemently disagrees.
In a brief press conference this evening, Graham went 'scroched earth' blasting that:
"...there's not a scintilla of evidence that the Bidens' connection to Ukraine was inappropriate, there's a tsunami of evidence."
Graham added that while the House managers claimed this was "debunked," the White House counsel "made a damning indictment" of what Hunter and Joe Biden allowed to happen and predicted that all 53 Republicans would vote to call Joe Biden’s son Hunter Biden as a witness if Democrats get enough votes to subpoena any witnesses.
“The only thing I know for sure, that if we call one witness, there’ll be 53 votes -- not 51, not 52, but 53 -- to call Hunter Biden because he’s incredibly relevant as to whether or not the president, Trump, had a reason to believe that corruption was afoot in the Ukraine,” said Graham.
Finally the Senator warned that "if we're gonna open this up to further enquiry, we're going to go down the road of whether it was legitimate of the president do believe their was corruption and conflicts of interest on the Bidens' part... and whether there is any credibility to the reports that the DNC met with Ukraine official in 2016."

Lindsey Graham says that if the Senate chooses to bring in impeachment witnesses, there will be "a lot" of them, including the Bidens, Schiff and the whistleblower whose complaint began impeachment.
