    Today’s Campaign Update (Because The Campaign Never Ends) He said, she said, Lindsey said. Game over. – I’ve said this several times over the last year, ever since John McCain took ill and was forced to pretty much remove himself from the scene in the nation’s capital, but it bears repeating here: It is absolutely amazing just how great Lindsey Graham has become now that he is free from the pernicious influence of John McCain. It is not an overstatement to say that Lindsey Graham changed the course of history yesterday. Not an overstatement at all. Up to the point...

    Sen. Lindsey Graham said Wednesday that President Donald Trump called him after he delivered an emotional farewell to Sen. John McCain on the Senate floor, telling the South Carolina Republican he "did right by his friend." "He called yesterday after my speech and he couldn't have been nicer. He said, 'That was very sad. I just want to let you know you did right by your friend.' I said, Thank you Mr. President.'" Graham told CNN's Dana Bash in an interview on "Inside Politics" Wednesday, adding that the call from the President was "right out of the blue." Never one...

    The Hill ^ | 04/26/2018 | Jordain Carney
    The Senate Judiciary Committee approved legislation on Thursday to protect special counsel Robert Mueller. In a 14-7 vote, the panel approved the bipartisan proposal that deeply divided Republicans on the committee. With every committee Democrat backing the legislation, only one Republican was needed to secure passage. In the end, 4 Republicans voted for the measure. The vote marks the first time Congress has advanced legislation to formally protect Mueller from being fired as Trump has publicly railed against him, and reportedly privately talked of firing him. The bill, sponsored by Sens. Chris Coons (D-Del.), Thom Tillis (R-N.C.), Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.)...

    The possibility of a government shutdown grew dramatically Thursday as House and Senate GOP leaders struggled to round up the votes to keep the government open past midnight Friday. Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) predicted that the House would pass a short-term funding measure on Thursday night. GOP leaders are gambling that rank-and-file Republicans won't want to risk being blamed for a shutdown and will end up supporting the short-term spending bill, which would keep the government open until Feb. 16.

    Sen. Lindsey Graham said Wednesday he won't vote for a short-term spending bill -- also known as a continuing resolution or CR -- that Republicans are attempting to pass by Friday night to avoid a government shutdown. The South Carolina Republican continued to push for the bipartisan proposal that he and five other senators pitched to the President last week -- which addresses the expiring Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program -- though that plan was rejected. "I'm not going to vote for a CR," Graham told reporters Wednesday. "I want to be fair to the DACA population. I want...

    Sen. Lindsey Graham bemoaned President Donald Trump's support for Alabama Senate Republican candidate Roy Moore on Sunday, calling the move a lose-lose situation. "If he wins, we get the baggage of him winning, and it becomes a story every day about whether or not you believe the women or Roy Moore, should he stay in the Senate, should he be expelled?" Graham said on CNN's "State of the Union." "If you lose, you give the Senate seat to a Democrat at a time where we need all the votes we can get.

    RINO Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) told voters on Thursday that if they do not support amnesty for illegal children then he does not want their vote. He made the remarks during his press conference with far left Illinois Senator Dick Durbin. Its an attitude like this that may explain Graham’s lack of success in the 2016 presidential primary election. PJ Media reported: Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) urged President Trump to support a revived DREAM Act and said at the “snap of his fingers” Trump could convince the Republican Party to unite behind providing a pathway to citizenship for all undocumented...

    U.S. Republican Senator Lindsey Graham said he wants to examine fellow Republican President Donald Trump's business dealings for any ties to Russia, CNN reported on Tuesday, one day after the issue was raised at a Senate hearing. Graham said it would be helpful to see Trump's tax records but that it was too soon to say whether he would be willing to subpoena them, according to CNN. Representatives for Graham could not be immediately reached to confirm the report or give more details. Representatives for the White House also could not be immediately reached.

    Sen. Lindsey Graham said on Sunday that the U.S. airstrikes on Syria demonstrate that, after eight years of President Barack Obama, “there’s a new sheriff in town.” The South Carolina Republican applauded President Trump’s decision to send Tomahawk cruise missiles last week to bomb the Shayrat Airfield in Syria, which launched chemical attacks April 4 that left as many as 80 civilians dead. “I’m glad Trump did this,” Mr. Graham said on NBC’s “Meet the Press.” “He is no longer Obama in the eyes of our enemies, but he needs to do more to close the deal. There’s a new...

    Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) says President Trump’s temporary ban on travelers from seven Muslim-majority nations can likely weather all legal challenges. “I think he’ll probably prevail at the Supreme Court,” he said Wednesday on “The Mike Gallagher Show." "Here’s what most people don’t get.” “The proposal is to slow down travel for 90 days, not to revoke everybody’s visa,” the 2016 GOP presidential candidate added. "I think he’ll win on that because that makes sense to me.”

    South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham blasted President Donald Trump, saying Tuesday he was undermining confidence in both the American democratic system and himself with the continued claims of voter fraud. "I would urge the President to knock this off; this is the greatest democracy on Earth, we're the leader of the free world, and people are going to start doubting you as a person if you keep making accusations against our electoral system without justification," Graham said. "This is going to erode his ability to govern this country if he does not stop it." Sen. Jeff Flake, an Arizona Republican...

    Lindsey Graham was not in complete agreement with President Donald Trump's inauguration speech on Friday, saying that he "doesn't know what America first means." “To the president, if America first is a throwback to the 20’sand 30’s isolationism when it was first used as a phrase, the world would deteriorate even quicker, if it is a new way of Ronald Reagan’s peace through strength I would like to work with him. I don’t know what America first means,” Graham said on CBS’s “Face the Nation."

Lindsey Graham (R-SC) said any Republican celebrating Russia’s hacking into the 2016 presidential election were “making a huge mistake” and described them as a “political hack.” Graham said, “To my Republican friends who are gleeful, you’re making a huge mistake. When when Wikileaks released information during the Bush years about the Iraq War that was embarrassing to the administration, that put our troops at risk most Democrats condemned it, some celebrated it. Most Republicans are condemning...

    WASHINGTON — Republican Sens. John McCain and Lindsey Graham pushed Sunday for greater sanctions against Russia for trying to influence the U.S. election and said President-elect Donald Trump is in danger of being in conflict with congressional Republicans if he doesn't get tougher on Russian President Vladimir Putin. The two senators, in a joint interview on Meet the Press, also said the U.S. intelligence community's evidence of Russian interference during the American presidential campaign is overwhelming, and that Trump should accept those findings. "You can't go on with your life as a democracy when a foreign entity is trying to...

"We're going to put sanctions together that hit Putin as an individual and his inner circle for interfering in our election

    It’s not even December, and one Senate Republican is already undermining Donald Trump’s plans in regards to the country’s broken immigration system. Republican South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham told Politico Wednesday that he is working with Senate Democrats to propose legislation guaranteeing young illegal immigrants the protections outlined in President Obama’s wide-ranging executive actions on immigration. Donald Trump promised throughout the election that he would repeal all of Obama’s executive actions, which would leave the 740,000 “Dreamers” legally living in the America through the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program open to deportation. “The worst outcome is to repeal the...
