Lindsey Graham Warns Not to Allow 'QAnon Shaman' Impeachment Testimony, Says Trial Could 'Go For Months'
Aila Slisco 5 hrs ago

Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) has warned against allowing "QAnon Shaman" Jacob Chansley to testify at former President Donald Trump's unprecedented second impeachment trial.

Chansley, also known as Jake Angeli, is facing multiple charges for his participation in the insurrection that the article of impeachment alleges the former president incited on January 6. Although Graham denounced the House for impeaching Trump on January 13 without calling any witnesses, on Friday the senator said that allowing witnesses at the Senate trial could lead to a lengthy "circus" featuring testimony from the likes of Chansley.

"I cannot think of a better way to turn the upcoming impeachment trial into a complete circus than to call the QAnon Shaman as a witness on anything," Graham tweeted. "The House impeached President Trump without a witness. If we open the witness door in the Senate there will be lots of witnesses requested on a variety of topics. And the trial will go for months, not days."

Chansley was the subject of photos that quickly went viral after the Capitol was violently breached by pro-Trump rioters. The shirtless "shaman" was pictured wearing a memorable outfit that included a furry horned hat and patriotic face paint.
