Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., now says he did read the testimony, and his conclusion is that the administration’s Ukraine policy was too “incoherent” for it to have orchestrated the quid pro quo that is at the heart of the probe. © Provided by Oath Inc.

Clinton said earlier this week she was “under enormous pressure from many, many, many people,” to consider running for president in 2020.

"But as of this moment, sitting here in this studio talking to you, that is absolutely not in my plans,” she said, but she also added, “As I say, never, never, never say never.”

Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) doubled down on his defense of President Trump amid the ongoing impeachment inquiry, arguing there's "nothing there" in the call between Trump and Ukrainian leaders to suggest the president did anything wrong.

President Trump bested Clinton in the 2016 election, though the former Democratic presidential nominee won the popular vote.

"From a Republican point of view, people laugh, but I'm not so sure I would be laughing, you know, she lost in a close race," Graham told ABC News on Tuesday.

Graham said Clinton, 72, could be a better candidate than the other Democrats running because she is less progressive.

"I think President Trump feels that he's gonna win because he's done a good job," he said. "But the thing about her candidacy that would be different: She hasn’t promised crazy stuff. She hasn't promised to give illegal immigrants free health care. She hasn’t promised to decriminalize illegal entry into the country. I don't think she supports the Green New Deal or Medicare for All. In that regard, it would be more difficult for the Republicans to have somebody not as wacky."

The window for Clinton to run may already be closed as she’s missed the deadline in several states to be on the Democratic primary ballot.
