Evangelist Franklin Graham, an ardent supporter of President Donald Trump, is urging the commander-in-chief’s detractors to “give it a rest” following allegations that the president used foreign aid money to pressure Ukrainian officials to investigate the business dealings of former Vice President Joe Biden’s son.

The most recent accusations against the president were leveled by a whistleblower who maintains that Trump repeatedly asked that Biden’s son, Hunter, be investigated during a July phone call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky. Fox News, however, is reporting that a source close to the investigation says the whistleblower does not have “firsthand knowledge” of Trump’s conversation with Zelensky.

“I wish President @realDonaldTrump’s enemies would give it a rest. For 2 years all the American people heard was collusion. Not true. Then accusations seemed to come out of the woodwork by various women. Then all we heard was impeachment. Now it’s a whistleblower claim,” Graham, president of the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association, tweeted on Monday, adding, “President @realDonaldTrump was elected to do a job. Let’s pray for him, that God will give him wisdom to make the right decisions for the American people and to do his job well.”

According to Western JournalTrump acknowledged Monday during his trip to the United Nations that he discussed the Bidens while on a July 25 call with Zelensky but insists he did not try to link aid-money to Ukrainian investigations. He added that the U.S. is supporting Ukraine and “we want to make sure that country is honest.”

“If you don’t talk about corruption, why would you give money to a country you think is corrupt?” Trump asked.

A group of seven centrist Democrats said in an op-ed that if Trump did pressure Zelensky to investigate the Bidens for political benefit, it’s an impeachable offense.

“These allegations are stunning, both in the national security threat they pose and the potential corruption they represent,” the lawmakers wrote. “These new allegations are a threat to all we have sworn to protect. We must preserve the checks and balances envisioned by the Founders and restore the trust of the American people in our government. And that is what we intend to do.”
