Steve Schmidt, the former adviser and strategist on former Sen. John McCain's (R-Ariz.) 2008 presidential campaign, blasted Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) on Thursday night, saying he has become "corrupted by ambition."
Schmidt, a frequent critic of President Trump, publicly denounced the Republican Party in June and said he will begin voting for Democrats.
His broadside against Graham came a day after the senator ripped into Democrats for their handling of the Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh's confirmation.
"He's corrupted by ambition, corrupted by politics," Schmidt told MSNBC's Brian Williams in an interview. "And it's tragic because this country could use a statesman right now and Lindsey Graham, for a long time, was on a path that he would be that person. That he

“You don’t bring me flowers, any more.”
Takes one to know one...
Best thing Lindsey Graham has ever done. Left complains because Graham punched the school yard bullies.
GRAHAM has been set from whatever hold NO NAME MCCAIN had on him.
Hopefully this will further cut Graham’s cords with the McCain’ism derangement.
In other words, an uppity Republican dared to stand up against the mob, and must be destroyed.
aRnie say HI and T’anks for all your help, Steve, in the 2003 Recall getting me elected.. you helped him pull the wool over folks eyes real good.
LOL - Graham hasn’t changed, Steve Schmidt - you have - to keep getting checks from MSNBC. Changed your party affiliation, your views on all of the issues, etc. That’s being corrupted by ambition by very definition.
I am 100% convinced that Schmidt’s job in 2008 was to throw the election for Obama.
Another rabid mccaniac dumps a pantload while staging a temper tantrum.
You lost. Get lost.
Steve Schmidtone of Juan McCains obedient pit vipers. Hes REALLY upset that Lindsey Graham is now a real GOP hero.
Schmidt knows one reason Jeffy Flake is the most hated man in Americabecause Juan MCCain is DEAD, otherwise Jeffy would be the second most hated man in America. S*cks to be you, Stevie Boy!!
LOL - Graham hasnt changed, Steve Schmidt - you have - to keep getting checks from MSNBC. Changed your party affiliation, your views on all of the issues, etc. Thats being corrupted by ambition by very definition.
This man should not have one thread dedicated to his opinion.
He’s an empty suit sellout to the highest bidder. He looks like he’s a sleaze too.
Yep..the minute that casket went in the ground freed Linsey.
Mark my words: behind this are Bush operatives and neocons. Kristol has called for an investigation into Kavanaugh. This is coming from both parties.
Isn’t Schmidt a YUGE looser, Big Time?
Was his Schmidt guy EVER a republican.
If he said he was...he was lying.
I thought Kavanaugh was a deep imbed of the Bushes.
