    Washington, D.C. U.S. Senators John McCain (R-AZ) and Lindsey Graham (R-SC) released the following statement today on the Egyptian parliaments passage of legislation regulating non-governmental organizations (NGOs): The Egyptian parliaments passage of draconian legislation regulating non-governmental organizations (NGOs) undermines Egypts stated commitment to protecting constitutionally-guaranteed rights and to furthering Egypts democratic transition. We urge President al-Sisi to reject this legislation and uphold Egypts constitutional commitment to freedom of association and assembly. This legislation would effectively subject the operation of independent NGOs to powerful Egyptian security agencies.Egypts longstanding and vibrant civil society would be placed under unprecedented pressure to cede...

    President-elect Donald Trump ran on a platform of being extremely tough on immigration. One of his vows to voters was that hed get rid of President Barack Obamas executive actions, which could include those that provided protections to young undocumented immigrants from being deported. One Republican lawmaker and Trump critic is now prepping legislation that would keep those protections in place in case Trump moves forward with his pledge. Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) has said he is working with both Democrats and Republicans in order to protect immigrants, known as Dreamers, who willingly came forward to give their information in...

    In a Senate floor speech today, Senators John McCain and Lindsey Graham announced that they are offering an amendment to strip a key element of the recently passed Justice Against Sponsors of Terror Act (JASTA) that clarifies U.S. law for civil claims against foreign governments for funding terrorism. JASTA was passed in the Senate in May with no objections, and passed the House of Representatives unanimously in September. President Obama promptly vetoed the bill. The Senate and House successfully voted to override the veto and the bill became law. McCain and Graham specifically said they want to strip the "discretionary...

    WASHINGTON ― One of Donald Trump’s fiercest Republican critics, Sen. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina, said Tuesday that the president-elect should either provide evidence of his claims that millions of people voted illegally or stop spreading a false message. “I don’t know what [Trump] is talking about,” Graham told The Huffington Post. “If he has evidence, bring it forward. If he doesn’t, he shouldn’t say things like that.” Graham said he plans to introduce a bipartisan resolution in the Senate to show confidence in the integrity of the 2016 elections. “I want people to believe — at least, the Senate...

In a Nov. 10 post on Facebook, Rev. Graham wrote, "Did God show up? In watching the news after the election, the secular media keep asking 'How did this happen?' 'What went wrong?' 'How did we miss this?' Some are in shock. Political pundits are stunned. Many thought the...

I would apologize, Graham, a frequent and colorful Trump critic, told Bloomberg Politics on Tuesday. I think the whole movement was unseemly. I had a lot of distaste for it. No factual basis....

The ad, titled "Agree," features clips of GOP leaders criticizing the business mogul in interviews and on news programs. Criticisms come from 2012 Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney as well as longtime Trump critics such as South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham, Nebraska Sen. Ben Sasse and Arizona Sen. Jeff Flake. "He's not a serious adult," Sasse says in an interview he gave on MSNBC. The ad closes with the words: "Unfit. Dangerous. Even for Republicans."

"People are getting pretty nervous about our candidates because he's in a death spiral here and nobody knows where the bottom is at," the South Carolina Republican told the New York Times. The Republican presidential nominee overhauled his campaign this week following a string of controversial comments that angered many in the party. But it is unclear if that will help Trump avoid the fall he's seen in recent national and state polls. Specifically, Republicans worry that Trump's struggles in the swing states...

    Sen. Lindsey Graham will soon raise money for Ted Cruz's presidential campaign, as CNN's Dana Bash just reported. Which is an amazing turn of events, given the things Graham previously said about Cruz. He has said on multiple occasions that Cruz is would be the death of the Republican Party and is no better than Donald Trump. He has even joked about killing Cruz. To wit (in reverse chronological order): Feb. 26: I was asked the hardest question in my political life: Do you agree with Donald Trump that Ted Cruz is the biggest liar in politics? he said. Too...

    In addition to the intense disinformation campaign from corporate media, the disinfecting sunlight from visible alliances is now exposing the entire DC-based UniParty political apparatus.As apoplectic Paul Ryan supporting ‘conservatives’ gathered today to discuss how to protect the right side penthouse suites of the UniParty, the left-side residents have agreed to support the unified endeavors.Erick Erickson, famous for his “Jeb Bush is the most conservative governor in history” comment, leads the charge to support Cruz from the right-wing punditry of the UniParty apologists. The insufferable idiocy of the Erickson wing is best highlighted by reviewing the words in their...

    Lindsey Graham will host a fundraiser for Ted Cruz next Monday. While Graham has not formally endorsed Cruz, the fundraiser is a sign that Graham at least prefers Cruz over Donald Trump and John Kasich, something Graham confirmed in a comment to the Washington Examiner. "He's the best alternative to Donald Trump," he said.

    Republicans should have expelled Donald Trump from the Republican Party, Lindsey Graham said Monday. The former presidential candidate told CNN's Wolf Blitzer that the New York billionaire's rhetoric toward immigrants has exacerbated the problem the GOP had with Hispanics in 2012. "He took our problems in 2012 with Hispanics and made them far worse by espousing forced deportation," Graham said. "Looking back, we should have basically kicked him out of the party." Asked how that would be done, the South Carolina senator suggested Republicans could have united against him like many are doing now. "The more you know about Donald...

    Over the last few weeks, Reverend Graham has spoken out numerous times.... Yesterday, he made a scathing post on Facebook to Mitt Romney. This is interesting for several reasons, but lets check out his post first. Said Rev. Graham, Im 63 years old and Ive never seen anything like this. This Republican presidential campaign has not only sunk to new lows, but the Republican establishment seems to be desperate to pick their own candidate.

    Lindsey Graham has had some harsh words for Donald Trump, but that doesn't mean he thinks a brokered convention would be fair to the Republican frontrunner. In an interview with former Obama adviser David Axelrod on his podcast "The Axe Files," Graham said a fractured nomination process also wouldn't be good for the GOP. "If he got two-thirds of what he needs, which I think he's well on his way to doing, for us to steal from him is not going to help the party," he said in the interview, which was recorded before Trump's Super Tuesday rout and Mitt...

    Everything voters have come to despise about the GOP Establishment is incarnated in Senator Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC)of South Carolina, who grudgingly allowed that Republican maharajahs might just have to hold their noses and support that Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX)fellow, just a couple of weeks after Graham joked that he could get away with murdering Cruz on the Senate floor.
