    If Republicans hold the Senate and Sen. Lindsey Graham becomes chairman of the Judiciary Committee, he’ll continue to investigate the Justice Department and the FBI’s actions ahead of the 2016 election, the South Carolina Republican said Sunday. Mr. Graham praised the work House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte, Virginia Republican, and Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Trey Gowdy, South Carolina Republican, have done in their probe of the controversial Trump dossier’s connection to a FISA warrant on Trump campaign associate Carter Page.

    Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., is ready to show up Sen. Elizabeth Warren, saying Tuesday he plans to take a DNA test to find out whether he has more Native American heritage than she does. “I’m going to take a DNA test,” Graham told “Fox and Friends” on Tuesday. “I’ve been told my grandmother was part Cherokee Indian. It may all just be talk.” Graham said he would reveal the results on the show in a couple weeks.

    The former talk show host was slammed on social media Thursday for tweeting, "If you’re wondering why Republicans took a sick day today, it’s probably because it’s #NationalComingOutDay. Looking at you @LindseyGrahamSC." Many on social media were not amused and derided Handler’s joke as homophobic, tired, and lazy. “Not sure homophobic insults are the cleverest means of attacking opponents… Yikes.,” wrote one Twitter user. As for Graham -- he doesn't care what Handler has to say. "I don't think much about what she says at all," Graham told TMZ. "If she wants to live her life that way, that's up...

    Senator Lindsey Graham criticized Hillary Clinton, Eric Holder and the Democratic Party on Wednesday for their behavior towards Brett Kavanaugh and their recent rhetoric during his appearance on “The Story” with Martha MacCallum. MacCallum began the conversation by showing the clip of Hillary Clinton saying there’s no room for civility in politics, which originally aired during a CNN interview on Tuesday. “I would say that if you think what happened to Brett Kavanaugh was civil, we have a definite different view of what civil means. Civil means that you do not destroy a good man because you want power. You...

    Democratic U.S. Sen. Mazie Hirono says she was disappointed by recent comments Sen. Lindsey Graham made on Fox News, in which he sharply criticized her role in the confirmation hearings of Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh. Hirono said that she had been able to work with Graham on bipartisan issues in the past. “I do think Lindsey is channeling Trump to a great extent,” Hirono told the Honolulu Star-Advertiser on Tuesday. “I’m very disappointed because I worked with Lindsey on immigration issues and other issues … Frankly, it is so outrageous; it just shows that they will say anything to...

    CNN Politics ^ | October 8, 2018 | Michael D'Antonio
    To many, Brett Kavanaugh's confirmation to the US Supreme Court is not just a victory for President Donald Trump, but for Trumpism at large. And it is this fact that unsettles so much of the nation. Trump's presidency is marked not by political ideology but by personality. As former Secretary of State Colin Powell, a Republican, told CNN's Fareed Zakaria, "We the people" has been replaced by "me the president." This Trumpian way of operating values winning over decency and power over unity. It is also a force that has proven to be both effective and infectious, and its malevolence...

    Sen. Lindsey Graham, South Carolina Republican, said Sunday he was so disgusted at the Kavanaugh confirmation process that he plans to do something he has never done: campaign against a fellow senator. “All I can say is that this is going to the streets, at the ballot box,” said Mr. Graham on “Fox News Sunday.” “I’ve never campaigned against a colleague in my life. That’s about to change.”

    His fight for Brett Kavanaugh completed his transformation into Donald Trump’s slobbering manservant. The battle over Brett Kavanaugh’s nomination to the Supreme Court was an especially ugly episode of a reality-show presidency that degrades almost everyone swept up in it, and many characters stagger away from it looking worse than ever. That’s Senator Lindsey Graham you see at the head of the pack. That’s Graham you hear talking and talking and talking some more, in committee rooms and on stages and before the television cameras that he rushes to the way a toddler chases soap bubbles. His words are whichever...

    South Carolina Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham did not take kindly to a group of protesters who followed him to his car, yelling demeaning comments. The protesters were waiting outside of Graham’s Senate office building protesting Supreme Court justice nominee Brett Kavanaugh. The protesters ran from their position standing on the side of the road with “STOP KAVANAUGH” signs to harass the Senator on his way to his waiting car. The women yelled that Graham was “despicable” and needed to be “kicked out of office.” In response, Graham smiled and wondered aloud if the women were South Carolina voters. “We will...

    A hardline adviser speaks out against the president's lovey-dovey diplomacy with Kim Jong Un. On Wednesday—just after Donald Trump gushed about falling “in love” with North Korea’s dictator and ahead of another trip by Secretary of State Mike Pompeo to Pyongyang to prepare for a second summit between Trump and Kim Jong Un—Lindsey Graham delivered a stark message to the U.S. president: End the lovefest. “I’m telling President Trump, ‘Enough with I love you,’” said the Republican senator, a close ally of Trump’s who had spoken to the president right before joining Jeffrey Goldberg on stage at The Atlantic Festival....

    Where has this Lindsey Graham been hiding? The Senator from South Carolina has been nothing short of incredible during the Kavanaugh circus, letting the Democrats and any cronies attached to them have it with both barrels whenever he’s given a platform. Adding just another moment of awesome to his growing list of awesome moments, Graham absolutely schooled a leftist protester who confronted him over Kavanaugh’s confirmation and demanding he take a polygraph test. “We’ve humiliated this guy enough, and there seems to be no bottom for some of you,” Graham said, after snapping his attention to the protester and approaching...

    Sen. Lindsey Graham, the South Carolina Republican who called last week’s Judiciary Committee hearing into sexual assault allegations against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh an “unethical sham,” isn’t done yet. Now he’s taking on a pivotal moment during the hearing -- an exchange between Minnesota Sen. Amy Klobuchar and Kavanaugh. Klobuchar pressed Kavanaugh on whether he ever blacked out while drinking or had events he couldn’t remember, but instead of answering, he asked the same questions of her. After a brief break in the hearing, Kavanaugh apologized to Minnesota’s senior senator.

    The GOP senator told Sean Hannity that the president should basically appeal any Senate “no” vote to the American people. Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) released a statement on Tuesday calling on President Donald Trump to renominate alleged sexual abuser Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court should his current nomination fail. Graham opened by sharing his admiration and empathy for Kavanaugh and his family, imploring other senators to “not quit on him,” before diving into the senator’s suggestion to the president. “I believe Judge Kavanaugh will be confirmed to the Supreme Court very soon,” Graham said. “However, if his nomination were...

    Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) told reporters Tuesday that the darkest side of American politics would be unleashed if Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh is taken down by allegations of sexual misconduct. "I keep telling my colleagues, if this is the new normal, God help us all," Graham told reporters in the hallway, according to Fox News. "Taking Kavanaugh down would unleash forces from the darkest side of American politics in perpetuity." "And if you think only one side is capable of doing this, you're mistaken," he added. Christine Blasey Ford accused Kavanaugh of attempting to sexually assault her at a...

    Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) says he thinks Kanye West’s plan to bring Colin Kaepernick to the White House to meet with President Trump would be a “great thing” amid the chasm between the president and the former NFL player on national anthem protests. “Anything to bring the country together. I want to watch football without feeling guilty about it,” Graham told TMZ on Monday when asked about the pro-Trump rapper's suggestion. “I believe in speaking your mind and having your say. Respect the flag,” he continued. "I want to work on sentencing reform, prison reform. A lot of people in...

    Scroll through to the 4:00 point. Graham’s suggestion to Trump is that Trump in the event of Kavanaugh falling short by one vote, Trump should renominate Kavanaugh and take it straight to the voters in states like North Dakota, Missouri, Indiana, West Virginia and other states that Trump won by big margins, which have Democratic Senators and let the voters decide if Kavanaugh gets to sit in the US Senate, otherwise, Kavanaughh’s life would have been ruined for nothing. Graham is still confident that Kavanagh will be confirmed though.

    Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) on Monday accused NBC of being a "co-conspirator" in an attempt to bring down Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, criticizing the network for its coverage of assault accusations against Kavanaugh. "They’ve been a co-conspirator in the destruction of Kavanaugh from my point of view," Graham said during an appearance on Fox News's "Hannity." Graham attacked NBC for reporting last week that the Senate Judiciary Committee had questioned Kavanaugh about a fourth assault accusation. Senate investigators asked Kavanaugh about an anonymous complaint alleging that he physically assaulted a woman in 1998. The complaint was originally sent to...
