    Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) said on Tuesday at a Senate Judiciary Committee’s Subcommittee on the Constitution that the nightly assaults on the federal courthouse in Portland, Oregon, required government intervention, because local law enforcement refused to quell the attacks on the building and the federal officers already stationed on the property. Graham asked Department of Homeland Security Acting Deputy Secretary Ken Cuccinelli about the fate of the courthouse if additional officers had not been deployed.

    Former senior adviser to President Barack Obama Valerie Jarrett talks to FOX Business’ Maria Bartiromo about the Trump/Russia investigation. "I have a high degree of confidence in our intelligence community, investigators comported themselves responsibly," Jarrett said. "Lindsey Graham is the one that encouraged Sen. McCain to turn over the dossier in the first place to the FBI.""I do know that it’s nearly four years ago and I don’t understand why our focus isn’t on what’s happening right now and today. That’s the investigation I’d like to see," she said. Bartiromo asked about the origins of the Steele dossier: "What’s happening...

    Democrat Jaime Harrison's Senate campaign released an internal poll on Monday finding him in a statistical tie with Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.). The survey, conducted by veteran Democratic pollster Cornell Belcher, finds Graham at 43 percent and Harrison at 41 percent. That's within the survey's 3.5-point margin of error. The poll found that 51 percent of respondents disapprove of the job Graham is doing. About 33 percent of South Carolina voters polled said Graham deserves to be reelected, with 59 percent saying it's time for someone new. "The polling paints a clear picture: This is a close and competitive race,"...

    Lindsey Graham once said he had no interest in hearing from Robert Mueller Now, 100 days out from Election Day, the South Carolina Republican and Senate Judiciary Committee chairman is teasing a blockbuster hearing with the former special counsel, joining Democrats’ months long push for Mueller to appear before the panel. But hauling Mueller back to the Capitol won’t be easy. And some doubt it will even happen so close to the election, in part because of the political land mines such an event would create for both Republicans and Democrats. “I’ll believe it when I see it,” Sen. Richard...

    Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham revealed in an interview with Fox News' "Sunday Morning Futures" that in 2018 Congress investigated Christoper Steele's Russian dossier, and that the FBI lied to lawmakers about it. Graham, R-S.C., has been leading an oversight investigation into the FBI's conduct during the early stages of the Russia probe, with a focus on the unverified dossier, which was used to get a Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) warrant to monitor former Trump campaign adviser Carter Page. SECRET SOURCE FOR ANTI-TRUMP STEELE DOSSIER IS REVEALED With new documents recently released that have shed light on the...

    Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham told "Hannity" Wednesday that he wants a key memo from the Russia investigation made public because it will likely indict the character of several individuals. The memo in question, according to Graham, concerns a January 2017 FBI interview of a Russian "sub-source" who provided material for the now-infamous Steele dossier, which was compiled by former MI6 spy Christopher Steele prior of the 2016 election and detailed various salacious, unconfirmed allegations against Trump. "The Russian was on Christopher Steele's payroll, he wasn't a contractor," Graham said. "After you talk to the guy who put the...

    Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) said Tuesday that any effort by the White House to undermine the nation’s top infectious disease expert, Anthony Fauci, would be unproductive as coronavirus cases surge across the country. “Has he been right all the time? No. We don’t have a Dr. Fauci problem. We need to be focusing on doing things that get us where we need to go. So I have all the respect in the world for Dr. Fauci. I think any effort to undermine him is not going to be productive, quite frankly,” Graham told reporters Tuesday when asked about reports of...

    WASHINGTON (AP/Gray News) - Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham tweeted Sunday that he plans to call Robert Mueller to testify before the Senate Judiciary Committee about the Russia investigation. This came after former special counsel Robert Mueller sharply defended his investigation into ties between Russia and Donald Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign, writing in a newspaper opinion piece Saturday that the probe was of “paramount importance” and asserting that a Trump ally, Roger Stone, “remains a convicted felon, and rightly so” despite the president’s decision to commute his prison sentence. The op-ed in The Washington Post marked Mueller's first public statement on...

    Following George Floyd's death, the nation may not be ready for reparations on racism issues but the "church can lead the way in biblical restitution," according to the president and CEO of Christianity Today. Timothy Dalrymple said "repentance alone is not enough" for white evangelicals to atone for the nation's "original sin" of racism in an op-ed for the magazine. "The virus of racism infected our church, our Constitution and laws, our attitudes and ideologies. We have never fully defeated it," Dalrymple wrote.

    Sen. Lindsey Graham says that he plans on calling former FBI Director James Comey and former deputy director Andrew McCabe to testify before his Senate Judiciary Committee, because he doubts they were unaware the dossier compiled by ex-British spy Christopher Steele had been debunked before it was used to get a FISA warrant to monitor former Trump campaign adviser Carter Page. After former Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein denied having knowledge of any altered documents or that the Steele dossier had been disavowed beforehand, McCabe responded by saying that Rosenstein’s claim that he was misled by him or anyone else...

    Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) is postponing a vote on authorizing subpoenas for more than 50 individuals as Republicans ramp up their investigation into the Russia probe. Graham said he was delaying the vote to give senators enough time to fully debate the issue, as the meeting brushed up against a pre-scheduled vote on the Senate floor. "We're going to do what this committee needs to do, and we're doing to fight it out and we're going to vote. And we're not going to be done today, so I don't see a resolution this day, if you need...
  • Sen. Lindsey Graham raises doubts about Antifa's role in riots, looting (plans hearings on police 'use of force')

    Sen. Lindsey Graham on Tuesday questioned how much blame should be directed at Antifa for the violent protests and looting in the wake of George Floyd’s death in police custody. Mr. Graham, who chairs the Senate Judiciary Committee, said Antifa has played “a part” in the civil unrest. But the South Carolina Republican noted that rioting and looting happened during protests long before the militant anti-fascist group became a movement. “We will try to find out how organized this violence is,” Mr. Graham said. “But I am old enough to remember 1968, and Antifa was not around in 1968, that...

Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.), the chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, announced Friday his panel will hold a hearing on police use of force after the killing of George Floyd in police custody in Minneapolis. Graham said in a statement he’d spoken with Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.), the committee’s ranking member, about the killing, which has resulted in days of protests and charges against one of the officers involved. “Both of us are appalled at what we saw and believe it is important to have a hearing as soon as possible as to how to combat this outrage,” Graham said....

    Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) said Tuesday that he wants to release the findings of his investigation into the federal Russia probe before the November election. Graham, speaking to a small group of reporters, said that he planned to wrap up the Judiciary Committee investigation by September or October. "I want to do it before the election, I want to get all the information out there," Graham said when asked if the plan was to release the report before the election. Graham's timeline, which was first reported by The Hill last week, would have him releasing a report on the committee's...

    Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) on Thursday rebuffed President Trump's demand that he call former President Obama to testify before the Senate Judiciary Committee as part of oversight on the origins of the Russia investigation. “I think it would be a bad precedent to compel a former president to come before the Congress. That would open up a can of worms, and for a variety of reasons, I don't think that's a good idea," Graham told reporters on Capitol Hill. Trump urged GOP lawmakers on Thursday morning to call Obama to testify in front of the Senate panel — the latest...

Graham said in a statement that the hearings will deal with the Justice Department's decision to drop its case against former White House national security adviser Michael Flynn, the warrant applications against former Trump campaign adviser Carter Page and if former special counsel Robert Mueller should have been appointed. “The Judiciary Committee will begin holding multiple, in-depth congressional hearings regarding all things related to Crossfire Hurricane starting in early June," Graham...
