    Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) on Monday criticized President Donald Trump’s remarks on alleged Russia meddling in Helsinki, Finland on Monday and warned that Vladimir Putin may conduct surveillance with a soccer ball gifted to the United States. Graham took to Twitter to lament President Trump’s supposed “missed opportunity” to hold Russia accountable for meddling in the 2016 presidential election. “Missed opportunity by President Trump to firmly hold Russia accountable for 2016 meddling and deliver a strong warning regarding future elections,” Graham began in a series of tweets following the joint press conference between the two leaders. “This answer by President...

    Republican Senator Lindsey Graham told Fox News on Tuesday that Democratic hopefuls for 2020 feel the need to be "the most insane person" when commenting on President Donald Trump's federal court nominations. "It seems to be that if you are running for president on the Democratic side in 2020 or thinking about it, you have to prove you are the most insane person when it comes to Trump nominees," Graham said in the interview with Fox host Martha MacCallum. The senator added that "President Trump could nominate George Washington and they would all be up in arms." Graham was referring...

    Sen. Lindsey Graham says Republicans are holding “four lottery tickets” with President Trump’s final short list of judges who could be nominated to the U.S. Supreme Court. “Republicans are holding four lottery tickets, and all of them are winners,” Mr. Graham said on “Fox News Sunday.” “If you’re a conservative Republican, the four people named, particularly Thomas Hardiman, I’m glad he’s on the list, are all winners, and every Republican should embrace these picks.”

    Sen. Lindsey Graham says the landmark Supreme Court decision legalizing abortion should not be overturned “unless there’s a good reason.” In an interview aired Sunday on NBC's "Meet The Press", the South Carolina Republican said the decision has been reaffirmed "in many different ways" in subsequent rulings. "I would tell my pro-life friends: you can be pro-life and conservative, but you can also believe in ‘stare decisis,’” he said, using a legal term used to refer to precedent. Graham’s stance in support of Roe v. Wade came just days after Justice Anthony Kennedy announced he’d retire from the nation’s high...

    Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) on Sunday said it is “fake news” to say that Russia did not meddle in the 2016 presidential election. “The idea that Russia did not meddle in our election is fake news,” Graham said on NBC’s “Meet the Press.” “They did meddle in our election and they're doing it again in 2018,” he added. President Trump said on Friday that he will press Russian President Vladimir Putin on Moscow's meddling during their meeting later this month. “We don’t want anyone tampering with elections," Trump said, promising Russia’s interference in U.S. elections will be on the summit’s...

    Democratic IT aide Imran Awan solicited a bribe from an IT vendor in exchange for contracting opportunities with the office of then-Rep. Gwen Graham, the vendor alleged to The Daily Caller News Foundation, adding that Imran spoke to him in detail about his alleged financial fraud schemes in the House. The Department of Justice knows of the source — the longtime owner of a major House IT company — and what he is prepared to testify, a high-level official in Jeff Sessions’ DOJ with knowledge of the investigation confirmed. But the vendor said no law enforcement ever even tried to...

    Evangelist Franklin Graham says the practice separating children from their parents at the U.S.-Mexico border is "disgraceful.” But the North Carolina-based preacher isn’t blaming the Trump administration and its zero-tolerance policy toward people who enter the United States illegally. "I think it's disgraceful, it's terrible, to see families ripped apart, and I don't support that one bit,” Graham, president and CEO of the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association, said Wednesday in an interview with the Christian Broadcasting Network. "I blame the politicians for the last 20, 30 years that have allowed this to escalate to the point where it is today....

    "My wife went to school in North Korea. That was one of the reasons that we could get in and talk to the leaders – that made it possible for us to go," Graham said. Ruth Graham’s parents were Christian missionaries in Pyongyang, a city once called the “Jerusalem of the East.” Today, possessing a Bible there can lead to criminal charges. He drew the kinds of crowds in Asia usually reserved for a pope, famously preaching to more than 1 million people in South Korea in 1973. “Love one another!” Graham told the congregation during his tour through Seoul,...

    Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) said Friday that he “doesn’t give a shit” about critics who don't like him working with President Trump. “If you don’t like me working with President Trump to make the world a better place, I don’t give a shit,” Graham told CNN’s “At This Hour.” Graham, who unsuccessfully ran for the GOP presidential nomination in 2016 and blasted Trump throughout the primary, said he trusts and likes the president. “I’ve got a relationship with the president at a time when he needs allies,” Graham said. The South Carolina senator has praised Trump for conducting missile strikes...

    (CNN)President Donald Trump's reasoning for the United States stopping war games on the Korean Peninsula because of cost is "ridiculous," Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham said Tuesday night. "It is ridiculous," Graham told CNN's Anderson Cooper. Graham continued by saying he did support stopping the drills, but in order "to give North Korea some breathing space to see if we can get a deal," noting that "the money we spend training with our allies is money well spent." "It's not a burden onto the American taxpayer to have a forward deployed force in South Korea. It brings stability. It's a warning...

    Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) on Monday blasted Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) for drafting an authorization for the use of military force (AUMF) in North Korea should President Trump’s forthcoming meeting with Kim Jong Un go south. “Lindsey Graham is a danger to the country by even proposing ideas like authorizing war with Korea,” Paul said on CNN. “So that should be something that is seen as naive and seen as something that really serious people shouldn’t even be discussing,” he added.

    And what would a good deal look like? I want to tell you this. Seven Democratic senators, Senator Schumer led the effort, wrote a letter to President Trump, I have it right here. In this letter, they lay out what a good deal would look like. Give up your nuclear weapons, give up your enrichment program, dismantle your missile capability, anytime anywhere inspections any place in North Korea verifiable. I embrace that letter as a good deal. Now here's my challenge. Telling the president the United States what a good deal were built like is very good but you got...

    South Carolina Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham on Sunday urged Democrats to sign onto an authorization to use military force against North Korea as a precautionary measure in case Pyongyang and Washington fail to reach a diplomatic agreement during next week's summit in Singapore. On ABC's "This Week," Graham asked his Democratic colleagues, "If diplomacy fails, will you support my efforts to authorize the use of military force as a last resort to convince North Korea and China that things are going to be different this time?" Graham made the remarks after saying he agreed with Democrats' demands in letter to...

"I'm not so sure John's right about where America is on trade," Graham told ABC's George Stephanopoulos on "This Week." "The [Sen.] Bernie Sanders [I-Vt.] element of the Democratic Party doesn't stand for free trade. Hillary Clinton said she would get out of the Trans-Pacific Partnership if she had become president. There is a movement in our party that Trump's seized that got him the nomination, and...

    In an email Tuesday night, former Congressman and presidential candidate Ron Paul released an ominous statement claiming that a source they have in the Senate revealed Democrats are teaming up with Republicans to push through a massive gun control bill. According to their source, as Paul explained, “Senators Marco Rubio (R-FL) and Lindsey Graham (R-SC) are teaming up with Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) to ram through one of the worst nationwide gun confiscation schemes ever devised.” The gun confiscation bill, according to Paul, is designed to disarm Americans without any due process. The senators are using the recent tragic shooting in...

He must be driven from public office because of his constant insistence that Robert Mueller is a saint who should be given totally unfettered power to do anything he wants. Lindsey Graham makes me want to puke.”...

    WASHINGTON (Reuters) - A top Republican has urged the White House to speak out against an aide who mocked Senator John McCain’s brain cancer during an internal meeting, but stopped short of calling on U.S. President Donald Trump to apologize. South Carolina Republican Senator Lindsey Graham, a close friend of McCain, told CBS’s “Face the Nation” program in an interview to be aired on Sunday that he was not satisfied with the White House’s response to the controversy surrounding Kelly Sadler, a communications aid. “It’s (a) pretty disgusting thing to say, if it was a joke, it was a terrible...
