    It is no news that some Republicans have opposed Trump all along and do not support him as President. Anyone with a pulse knows that their opposition is budding into an insurrection, and some even make the case for a full blown putsch, as does Hoover Fellow Richard Epstein in "Presidential Chaos." Although, "the Republican case against Trump is in the whispering phase, as no one wants openly to state the obvious," Epstein does just that. He argues that because a self-inflicted "perpetual state of dysfunction and chaos" has claimed the Trump presidency, he instructs "cooler heads in the Republican...

    The United States will have no choice but to take devastating military action, says Graham A Republican senator said on Tuesday that US President Donald Trump has told him he would go to war to destroy North Korea rather than allow it to develop a long-range nuclear-armed missile. Influential lawmaker Lindsey Graham, a foreign policy hawk, told NBC's Today Show: "There is a military option: To destroy North Korea's program and North Korea itself." Last week, North Korean leader Kim Jong-Un boasted that his country could now strike any target in the United States after carrying out its latest intercontinental...

    Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) made it clear on Thursday what would happen if President Donald Trump fires his attorney general, Jeff Sessions. “If Jeff Sessions is fired, there will be holy hell to pay,” he told CNN. Graham also said he is looking to introduce legislation next week that would block the firing of special counsels without a judicial review. Rumors have been swirling around Capitol Hill this week that Trump is looking to dispose of Sessions and Robert Mueller, the special counsel appointed to investigate Russia’s election interference, and any potential links between the Kremlin and the Trump campaign....

    Fearing that President Donald Trump could short-circuit the investigation of Russian meddling in the 2016 elections, Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., plans to introduce legislation to block any such action. Graham said the bill he will introduce next week will block the president from firing a special counsel without a federal judge’s approval if that counsel is investigating the president or his administration. Graham said, “We need a check and balance here,” and that the bill will apply to Trump as well as to all future presidents.

    South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham is urging South Carolinians to vote against him when they disagree with his support for a national amnesty plus a greater inflow of foreign workers to take Americans’ jobs. “To the people who object to this, I don’t want you to vote for me because I cannot serve you well,” he said in a Capitol Hill press conference July 20. He continued: The key here is to be fair to the 11 million [illegal immigrants], starting with the [2 million younger illegals] ‘Dreamers,’ but convince people we’re going to do what our great friend [President]...

    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...

    Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-South Carolina, had a blistering message for members of his own party in a Capitol Hill press conference Thursday as he and Sen. Dick Durbin, D-Illinois, pushed their bill Thursday to grant legal status and a path to citizenship for some immigrants who came to the U.S. illegally as children. Graham and Durbin are reviving a new version of the bill, which has been introduced in previous years in the Senate, as the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program faces legal challenges in court. Graham said he appreciates the Trump administration's stated priority to prioritize deporting...

He clearly was a hurting guy," Graham told CNN. "I think they relieved the pressure, and he sounded like the old John McCain, dying to get back and talking about driving across the country. I said, 'No.' "

    “No one talks of it.” That is how Max Frankel, a reporter for The New York Times, described the feeling of “Middle Americans” in Dayton about the “remote controversy” called Watergate. Frankel published his Ohio dispatch on September 15, 1972, as President Richard M. Nixon was campaigning for reelection against Sen. George S. McGovern. Nixon won, but 692 days after Frankel published that article, the president resigned from office, felled by the very scandal Dayton deemed irrelevant. Think of Dayton every time you read an article about how supporters of President Donald J. Trump “don’t care” about the several investigations...

    A new list of approval polls for all 50 U.S. senators released this week seems to indicate that the Republican senators with the lowest popularity among voters at home are those who have been the most vocally critical of President Donald Trump — and who have historically supported amnesty for illegal immigrants. The least popular GOP senators, according to the series of polls from Morning Consult, were — in this order — Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.), Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.), Sen. Jeff Flake (R-Ariz.), and Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.). McConnell, McCain, and Flake were the three least popular senators overall,...

    Unlike state elected officials, members of the House of Representatives and United States Senate cannot be recalled. Not because it would take too much organization and/or money on the ground, but because there is no mechanism within the United States Constitution to even make that a possibility. And who do we have to thank for this?

    Senators John McCain and Lindsey Graham are at it again – continually trashing President Trump and his secretary of state, Rex Tillerson, for talking to Russia, or else implying they want to work with Russia. ...snip... The Russians also are under suspicion for hacking around during elections, including ours. Every one of us should remember that not one intelligence agency has seen the Democratic National Committee's computers that we have been told were hacked by the Russians. None of this bothers the two senators. But when President Trump tries to work out something constructive with the Russians, their aggravation is...

    Two senior Republican U.S. senators criticized Secretary of State Rex Tillerson on Sunday for saying that Russia may have the "right approach" on Syria and for what they called his lack of focus on Afghanistan and Pakistan. "His statements about Syria really disturb me. No, (Russian President Vladimir) Putin does not have it right when it comes to Syria," Senator Lindsey Graham said. In separate television interviews, Graham and Senator John McCain, prominent Republican foreign policy voices, took aim at Tillerson's remarks last week that Russia may have "got the right approach" and the United States the wrong approach to...

    Two top Republican senators are asking the Justice Department to turn over all applications by the FBI to the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court regarding its investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 elections. In a letter to Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein and Acting FBI Director Andrew McCabe sent Tuesday and made public Wednesday, Sens. Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, and Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., request "all proposed and final applications for surveillance warrants." "We are writing to request information regarding [Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act]-related actions by the FBI and the Justice Department in the course of the investigation of Russian interference in...

    The Wichita Eagle ^ | June 13, 2017 | Richard Lardner, The Associated Press
    The Senate on Tuesday narrowly turned back a bipartisan bid to rebuke Saudi Arabia and reject President Donald Trump's plan to sell the kingdom more than $500 million in precision-guided munitions, sparing the new Republican administration an embarrassing defeat. The vote Tuesday was 53-47, clearing the way for the sale to be finalized. The precision munitions are part of Trump's proposed $110 billion arms package to Riyadh, which the administration said would create U.S. jobs while also improving a key ally's military capability. But opponents of the deal, led by Sens. Rand Paul, R-Ky., and Chris Murphy, D-Conn., have been...

    Just days after launching a new political action committee, former Democratic Vice President Joe Biden will join Republican officials and donors at a weekend retreat hosted by former GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney. Biden will be interviewed by Romney during a Friday evening event in Park City, Utah, at the invitation-only summit, according to a Biden spokesman and participants briefed on the schedule. The speaker lineup for what is traditionally a gathering of Romney allies is packed with high-profile Republicans, among them House Speaker Paul Ryan and Sens. Lindsey Graham and John McCain. Ryan was Romney’s running mate in 2012....

    Sen. Lindsey Graham says U.S. intelligence agencies tell him that a conversation he had with a foreign individual was picked up in surveillance and that an unknown U.S. official or officials asked to know his identity as a party in the conversation. Graham says he doesn't know if intelligence agencies actually revealed his name. But he's sent a letter to the FBI, CIA and the National Security Agency seeking information on any incidental collection of his communications with foreign targets. Graham says he wants to know if Obama administration officials sought the unmasking of Americans in foreign intelligence reports for...

    Full title: 'None of it makes much sense': Experts are baffled by Comey's use of a fake Russian document to skirt the DOJ Former FBI, CIA, and Justice Department officials say they are baffled by reports that a fake Russian document affected former FBI Director James Comey's handling of the investigation into Hillary Clinton's use of a private email server. CNN reported Friday that Comey knew the document — a memo purporting to show collusion between Loretta Lynch, who was then the attorney general, and the Clinton campaign — was fake. That has raised questions about why he used it...
