    Republican Senator Lindsey Graham, one of Trump’s closest allies, says he spoke to the former president Tuesday night after the first day of the trial and assured him that “the case is over” and the trial will end in acquittal.

    The South Carolina senator said he told Trump that one of his defense attorneys, David Schoen, “did a pretty good job,” despite widespread criticism of his other attorney, Bruce Castor.

    “Bottom line is, I reinforced to the president, the case is over,“ Graham said Wednesday. “It’s just a matter of getting the final verdict now.”

    Graham told reporters he expects more than 44 GOP senators to vote to acquit Trump. Only six of the chamber’s 50 Republicans yesterday voted with Democrats to declare the trial constitutional. It would take 67 votes to convict Trump when the trial ends.

    “I think the vote for not guilty will probably grow beyond 44,” he told reporters.
