(CNSNews.com) - Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.), the chairman of the Judiciary Committee, said on Wednesday he has an important message for House Speaker Nancy Pelosi:

"I want Nancy Pelosi to know that Republican senators are not going to impeach this president based on this (phone call) transcript, so she can stop now before she destroys the country."

Graham made the comment on "Fox & Friends," after he was asked about his invitation to Trump attorney Rudy Giuliani to testify before the Senate Judiciary Committee:

Well I talked to Rudy yesterday. He's claiming to have a lot of evidence about corruption in Ukraine that ties back to the Democrats, apart from what the House is looking at. The House could care less about fairness. Schiff is not looking for the truth.

I think Rudy's got a story to tell. I want him to tell it in my committee. He would be respectfully treated. This is a Star Chamber process (secretive) in the House behind closed doors.

There should be a vote on impeachment. You have to have a vote to make it legitimate, and at the end of the day I am going to shed light on all things Ukraine.

And I’m going to ask my colleagues in the Senate, Republicans, to sign a letter to Nancy Pelosi saying we do not believe the transcript of the phone call between the president and the Ukraine is an impeachable offense.

They're about to destroy the nation for no good reason. I've read the transcript. I do not see anything wrong there, and I want Nancy Pelosi to know that Republican senators are not going to impeach this president based on this transcript, so she can stop now before she destroys the country.

The House brings articles of impeachment, and the Senate holds the trial, either acquitting or convicting the president.
