    Washington (CNN) President Donald Trump has long resisted releasing his tax returns in a break with historic precedent, but even one of his closest allies in the Senate thinks he should. Asked if Trump should release his tax returns, Sen. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina told CNN on Thursday, "Yeah, I think everybody should. I've said that for a long time." Graham has sought to make financial disclosure an issue in his reelection by releasing 11 years of state and federal tax returns for press review and demanding that his Democratic opponent, Jaime Harrison, do the same. "What is he...

    Senators aim to limit Trump's ability to remove troops from Germany BY JORDAIN CARNEY - 06/29/20 03:19 PM EDT A bipartisan group of senators is trying to place limits on President Trump's ability to remove troops from Germany unless the administration is able to meet a slew of requirements. The proposal, spearheaded by Sen. Mitt Romney (R-Utah), would prohibit the administration from reducing the number of active-duty troops in Germany below 34,500 unless the Pentagon can certify to Congress that it is in the national security interest of the United States and would not negatively undermine European alliances or NATO....

    Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) said Monday that the order President Trump signed earlier in the day suspending certain temporary work visas through the end of the year will have a “chilling effect” on the nation’s economic recovery amid the coronavirus pandemic. “This decision, in my view, will have a chilling effect on our economic recovery at a time we should be doing all we can to restore the economy,” Graham said in a series of tweets. The order Trump signed Monday applies to H-1B visas, H-2B visas, H-4 visas, L-1 visas and certain J-1 visas. “Under ordinary circumstances, properly administered...

    Sen. Lindsey Graham kicked off a Senate hearing Tuesday on police brutality by contrasting his experience with police with that of his fellow South Carolina GOP colleague Sen. Tim Scott to illustrate the problem with policing today and to make the case for federal reform legislation. Scott, the Senate's lone black Republican, revealed in an emotional 2016 speech that he was stopped seven times in one year by law enforcement and experienced discrimination even on Capitol Hill as a sitting senator. “Tim and I have completely different experiences with the cops," Graham, the chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, said...

    In the next step of a race already on pace to become the most expensive in South Carolina history, U.S. Sen. Lindsey Graham has defeated three little-known GOP challengers, the last marker ahead of an expected general election face-off with Democrat Jaime Harrison. Graham, 64, bested fellow Republicans Duke Buckner, Michael Lapierre and Joe Reynolds in Tuesday’s primary election. Harrison was unopposed in his primary, and two Libertarians and one Constitution Party candidate have also filed to seek the seat.

    The president has been under siege, literally, since before he took office in January 2017. Since then, he’s had to endure withering attacks on his motives, his character, his policies, and his family, up to and including an outright attempt to remove him from office and, if the deep state can manage, to throw his ass in jail afterward. And all because he managed to beat the most corrupt bitch ever to run for the Oval Office and, in doing so, screwed up the deep state’s plan to transform our country and all Americans into a global piggy bank for...

The president came under fire for telling members of Congress, including Democratic Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York and Ilhan Omar of Minnesota, to go back” and fix the countries “they originally came from,” after a series of perceived anti-American comments by the members.

    Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham is stuck once again between a President whose support he needs to win re-election and his lifelong friendship with the late Arizona Sen. John McCain, who encouraged all to put country first. But time and political necessity have softened Graham's public grievances with President Donald Trump. The presidential embrace has been months in the making. Beginning with golf outings with Trump, Graham now frequently takes calls from the President. In recent months, the South Carolinian has become a close Trump confidant on Capitol Hill, an alliance that has afforded him broad influence over the GOP conference...

    President Trump should reopen the federal government for three weeks before declaring a national emergency, according to Sen. Lindsey Graham. "Before he pulls the plug on the legislative option, and I think we're almost there, I would urge him to open up the government for a short period of time, like three weeks, before he pulls the plug, see if we can get a deal," the South Carolina Republican said during an interview with "Fox News Sunday." "If we can't at the end of three weeks, all bets are off, see if you can do it by himself through the...

    Does the deal involve a word that begins with “A” and ends with “mnesty”? No ending to an Ann-Coulter-led push for a big fight over the wall would be more ironic than Trump agreeing to amnestize a few millions DREAMers to resolve it.Also, does POTUS realize that the entire reason Graham has been so gung ho on fighting for the wall lately is because he hoped/expected it would lead to a DREAM deal? I know you know that because you’ve been following immigration politics and Graham’s squishy role in it for years. I’m asking if Trump knows. Graham, I...

    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...

    Yesterday, the Department of Justice released a heavily redacted version of the FISA warrant used to surveil 2016 Trump campaign volunteer Carter Page. Sen. Lindsey Graham told CBS's 'Face The Nation' on Sunday that Steele's dossier was "garbage," and because "they never told the court that he was a paid operative in the Democratic Party" the FISA warrant (and those who filed it) need serious scrutiny. MARGARET BRENNAN: This morning the president is again accusing the Justice Department and the FBI of misleading courts and illegally surveilling his campaign. He’s pointing to these documents that were just released about Carter...

    Sen. Lindsey Graham says the landmark Supreme Court decision legalizing abortion should not be overturned “unless there’s a good reason.” In an interview aired Sunday on NBC's "Meet The Press", the South Carolina Republican said the decision has been reaffirmed "in many different ways" in subsequent rulings. "I would tell my pro-life friends: you can be pro-life and conservative, but you can also believe in ‘stare decisis,’” he said, using a legal term used to refer to precedent. Graham’s stance in support of Roe v. Wade came just days after Justice Anthony Kennedy announced he’d retire from the nation’s high...

    The White House appears to have banned Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) from participating in immigration reform negotiations due to recent strain between Graham and the Trump administration, as well as other Republicans in the House and Senate. Tensions first rose when Graham advocated for an immigration deal that failed to address President Donald Trump’s main concerns regarding chain migration and border security alongside Sen. Dick Durbin (D-Ill.). The situation worsened when the Republican senator criticized chief of staff John Kelly as never having “closed a deal before, politically” and top policy adviser Stephen Miller as being an “outlier” on immigration,...

    Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) said the Republican-led Congress should offer a path to citizenship for DREAMers now and pass a bill that deals with border security and “chain migration later” in exchange for granting “amnesty” to all undocumented immigrants. Rather than waiting until Congress can agree on some sort of comprehensive immigration package, conservatives in Congress have argued that any deal granting legal status to “Dreamers,” called so in reference to the DREAM Act, should be tied to additional border security measures, such as funding for the border wall and legislative language that prevents “chain migration,” or family reunification, in...
