(CNS News) -- Commenting on the Senate impeachment trial of former President Donald Trump, evangelical leader Franklin Graham said there is no precedent for impeaching a president who is no longer in office, and added that Trump's "enemies are terrified that he might have a political future" that could threaten their positions and agendas.

"Today the impeachment trial against former President Donald J. Trump begins in the US Senate," said Rev. Graham in a Feb. 9 post on Facebook. I don’t understand why there’s so much hatred for a president who did so much good for our country and did exactly what he told the American people he would do."

"There’s nothing in the Constitution that allows them to do this—they’re just making the rules up as they go," said Graham.

"It’s obvious that Donald Trump‘s enemies are terrified that he might have a political future that would threaten their positions and their agendas," he added. Let’s pray for our country and our leaders in Washington today."

"This impeachment is just further dividing our country when they should be focused on so many other issues," said the reverend. "President Biden could take the leadership and speak out to condemn this evil hypocrisy."
