House impeachment managers and Trump’s defense team gave closing arguments Saturday following days of evidence and arguments. The Senate ultimately voted 57-43 to acquit Trump, with seven Republicans crossing party lines. 

Democrats had argued that the Senate should vote to convict Trump and then vote to prevent him from ever running for office again, while Trump's defense team claimed the former president’s remarks challenging the results of the 2020 election were covered by the First Amendment and that he did not incite the deadly mob that stormed the Capitol on Jan. 6.

Graham’s decision was likely tied to his threat that Trump’s impeachment team would try to call a laundry list of witnesses if Democrats opened the door to depositions.

“If you want a delay, it will be a long one with many, many witnesses,” he tweeted Saturday.

Graham was one of the 43 Senators who voted to acquit the former president.
