  • Graham: Connection between Trump campaign, Russian intelligence would be 'game changer'

    Reports that President Trump's campaign aides had regular contact with Russian intelligence officials would be a "game changer" if true and would warrant a select committee to investigate, according to Sen. Lindsay Graham (R-S.C.). The GOP senator in an interview early Wednesday called for a "preliminary investigation" to see if further scrutiny is warranted after The New York Times and CNN reported that Trump campaign aides and allies spoke regularly with members of Russian intelligence....

    We should not allow Dreamers to forget that this is a nation of law and they received mercy. On June 15, 2012, President Obama signed an executive order to protect those who arrived illegally to the United States as minors. Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals provides a two-year window to shield these people from deportation and allow them to work. They must have been under 16 when they arrived, be in school or have completed school, and have no criminal record. The order produced consternation on two fronts. First, the nature of the action. Many feel that immigration policy, legal...
  • Trump SLAMS senators for ‘provoking WORLD WAR 3’ instead of dealing with immigration

    Trump has hit back after two sentaors criticised his executive order on travel The President took to Twitter to criticise Republican senators John McCain and Lindsey Graham after they released a statement warning about the potential counterproductive effects of Trump’s executive order on travel from seven Muslim-majority countries. Trump tweeted: “The joint statement of former presidential candidates John McCain & Lindsey Graham is wrong - they are sadly weak on immigration. “The two Senators should focus their energies on ISIS, illegal immigration and border security instead of always looking to start World War III.”

    WASHINGTON — John McCain is making it very clear that he isn’t just going to go along with everything President Trump proposes, despite the fact they are both Republicans. The Arizona senator just won a six-year term so he isn’t concerned about being re-elected. And just a few days into the new administration, he’s showing that he has no problem speaking out against the president. “Look, there's no evidence of that and I think that those who allege that have to come up with some substantiation of the claim,” McCain said Wednesday on MSNBC’s Morning Joe about Trump’s claim that...

    Washington (AFP) - A senior Republican senator said Wednesday that his campaign accounts were hacked by Russians, taking issue with President-elect Donald Trump's rejection of Moscow's alleged interference in the US elections. Senator Lindsey Graham said he was informed three months before the November 8 presidential election that his accounts were broken into.

    DEC 9 2016 Is Trump Softening on Young Immigrants? Senators Hope So, Offer Bill by SUZANNE GAMBOA WASHINGTON - Seizing on President-elect Donald Trump's "encouraging" comments in a Time interview, two U.S. senators are pushing for a stopgap protection from deportation for young immigrants who arrived or stayed in the country illegally as children. Senate Minority Leader Dick Durbin, D-Ill., and Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., partnered to introduce legislation Friday that would protect the young immigrants should Trump repeal the executive action before Congress takes up immigration reform. The protection would be temporary to keep them from being deported while...

    Lawmakers in Congress intensified their calls Wednesday for a probe into hacking during the 2016 election, raising chances of a clash with President-elect Donald Trump. Trump continues to reject the US intelligence community's conclusion that Moscow is to blame, telling Time Magazine that he does not believe the intelligence community's assessment that Russia was behind the hacks.

    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...
  • Graham on Trump: 'He's in a death spiral'

    Sen. Lindsey Graham is worried Donald Trump's floundering presidential campaign will cost the Senate Republicans their majority. "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...
  • Donors for Bush, Kasich and Christie Are Turning to Clinton More Than to Trump [RINOS BACK CLINTON]

    People who donated to establishment Republican candidates in the primary season are more likely to give money to Hillary Clinton, the Democratic nominee, than to their own party’s candidate, Donald J. Trump. In a typical election year, donors whose candidates have dropped out of the race funnel additional contributions to another candidate in the same party. But this presidential election is different. Of the donors who gave at least $200 to Jeb Bush, Gov. John Kasich, Gov. Chris Christie or Senator Lindsey Graham in the Republican primaries, more of them have also contributed to Mrs. Clinton than to Mr. Trump,...

    Sen. Lindsey Graham said Thursday that presumptive GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump, who says he’s meeting with the National Rifle Association to talk about banning people on the government’s no-fly list from buying guns, is on the "right road" on the issue. “I want to applaud Mr. Trump. I think he’s [going] to the middle on something that’s very important," Mr. Graham said on 'Fox and Friends' Thursday morning. "If you're on a no-fly list, if the government has determined that you are too dangerous to get on an airplane, I believe you shouldn’t be able to buy a gun....

    DONALD J. TRUMP RESPONSE TO LINDSEY GRAHAM "I fully understand why Lindsey Graham cannot support me. If I got beaten as badly as I beat him, and all the other candidates he endorsed, I would not be able to give my support either. Every time I see Lindsey Graham spew hate during interviews I ask why the media never questions how I single-handedly destroyed his hapless run for President. As a candidate who did not receive 1% in his own state - compared to my victory at nearly 40% with many others in the race - he has zero credibility....

    Sen. Lindsey Graham tore into Donald Trump’s speech on foreign policy, calling it “unnerving,” “pathetic” and “scary.” The South Carolina Republican former presidential candidate told WABC Radio on Wednesday that the speech was “nonsensical” and showed that Trump “has no understanding of the world and the role we play.” “This speech was unnerving. It was pathetic in its content, and it was scary in terms of its construct. If you had any doubt that Donald Trump is not fit to be commander in chief, this speech should’ve removed it,” Graham said. “It took every problem and fear I have with...

    Residents of the Middle East should not be too alarmed at the prospect of Donald Trump becoming president, Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham told reporters in Cairo on Sunday. "The Congress is going to be around no matter who is the president," Graham, who is leading a Republican congressional delegation touring the Middle East, told reporters after meeting Egyptian President Abdel-Fattah el-Sissi. Graham said he and el-Sissi discussed Trump, among other issues. "All of us, regardless of what Mr. Trump says or does, we are going to keep being who we are, so don't let the political scenes at home get...

    Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham, whose own quest for the GOP presidential nomination ended unsuccessfully, on Thursday called Donald Trump a "nut job" who likely will win the party's nod, but lose in November's general election. "He's just generally a loser as a person and a candidate," the South Carolina senator told reporters, adding, "You can't nominate a nut job and lose, and expect it doesn't have consequences." Asked whether he'd endorse the billionaire businessman if nominated, Graham said, "I've got a ticket on the Titanic. So I am like on the team that bought a ticket on the Titanic after...

    Jeb Bush finished sixth in Iowa, fourth in New Hampshire, and the latest RealClearPolitics average for Saturday's GOP primary has Trump at 34 percent, Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio at 17 percent, Bush andJohn Kasich at 10 percent, and Ben Carson at 7 percent. New Hampshire breathed some life into the Bush campaign, because he finished narrowly ahead of Rubio. What does Bush need in South Carolina? "My hope for Jeb is that he solidifies that he's the governor choice, that he is competitive with Rubio," said South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham, a Bush supporter. "I don't see South Carolina...

    Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump and former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush (R) sparred in an early presidential debate exchange during which Trump confronted the audience multiple times. (SNIP) Trump took another shot at the audience shortly after. The crowd loudly booed Trump when he mocked Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-South Carolina), for having "0%" in the polls before dropping out of the presidential race and endorsing Bush.

    When Lindsey Graham began running for president last year, some analysts thought he was looking to knock out Rand Paul over foreign policy differences. Now, as an ex-candidate, Graham seems to be taking aim at Ted Cruz. "I have no doubt that he would be an ideologue in the eyes of most Americans," Graham said of Cruz during an interview Fox News Radio's Kilmeade & Friends. "He's been the most disruptive influence in the senate, he hasn't passed anything meaningful."
