Democrats are pursuing an impeachment investigation into Trump based on allegations the president attempted to use U.S. military aid to Ukraine to secure an investigation by the Ukrainian government into former Vice President Joe Biden and his son Hunter Biden for political gain. The proceedings launched after a whistleblower filed an anonymous complaint alleging the agreement was made in a July 25 phone call between Trump and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky.

The White House released a transcript of the phone call after securing Zelensky's approval to do so. Graham has repeatedly defended Trump against the allegations at the root of the impeachment process, referring back to the transcript of the phone call to do so.
