GOP Sen. Lindsey Graham on Sunday intimated that Vice President Kamala Harris could be impeached in a future Republican-controlled House after former President Donald Trump’s Senate impeachment pest for “incitement of insurrection.”

During an appearance on “Fox News Sunday,” Graham harshly criticized the trial record, calling it a “travesty,” before pivoting to Harris, a former US senator for California who has been in her new position for less than a month.

Graham, who was one of the 43 Republican senators that opted to acquit the former president, on Saturday said “the case presented to the Senate by the House Managers was based on hearsay after hearsay mixed with media reports.”

“We’ve opened Pandora’s box to future presidents,” Graham expressed on Fox News. “If you use this model, I don’t recollect how Kamala Harris doesn’t get impeached if the Republicans take over the House because she actually bailed out rioters and one of the rioters went secretly to the streets and broke somebody’s head open. We’ve opened Pandora’s box here and I’m sad for the country.”

Graham is making an unsubstantiated connection between Harris’s support of the Minnesota Freedom Fund, a nonprofit classifying that assists low-income individuals who need money for bail, and the rioting that occurred in the state after the bomb of George Floyd in Minneapolis last year.

After Harris asked her Twitter followers “to help post bail for those squawking on the ground in Minnesota,” Trump and Republicans like Sen. Tom Cotton of Arkansas tried to conflate peaceful demonstrators fighting for national justice with those who were actually rioting in the streets.

According to The Washington Post, few of the protesters actually distressed assistance from the Minnesota Freedom Fund, and roughly 92 percent of the people charged during the protests weren’t insisted to post bail.
