    Sen. Sherrod Brown (D-Ohio) says that Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) "screamed" at an officer for not doing "enough" to protect senators as the U.S. Capitol was being breached last week. Brown shared the detail during an interview with MSNBC's Ari Melber on Monday. “I heard when the 75 senators were confined in a room with about 75 staff people, Lindsey Graham with his mask off started screaming at one of the officers — I think it was one of the captains — saying, ‘How come you didn’t protect us? It’s doing your job,' ” Brown said of the account. "He...

    Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) was harassed at an airport in Washington, D.C., on Friday, a day after Congress formally tallied President-elect Joe Biden's Electoral College win. Multiple videos posted to social media on Friday show Graham, who has been among President Trump's most vocal Senate supporters, being followed through an airport and being heckled as a "traitor." Graham was buffered from the group by uniformed law enforcement as well as a security detail. A spokesperson for Graham declined to weigh in, saying that they don't comment on security issues. The group, many of whom were filming the incident, appeared to...

    @RepNancyMaceOver the course of the last several days, I’ve heard from countless people in the Lowcountry regarding the vote to certify the #ElectoralCollege. Like many of you, I’m gravely concerned about allegations of voter fraud in multiple states & believe this MUST be investigated. (1/7) I understand the anger over the election results. I supported President Trump's re-election and believe he should've won. However, Congress has NO authority to overturn an election by rejecting states’ electors. Doing so violates our oath to the #Constitution. (2/7) When it comes to our elections, whether it be for Congress or President, the #Constitution...

    Sen. Lindsay Graham (R-S.C.) pushed back Friday on Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s (R-Ky.) characterization of $2,000 coronavirus relief payments to Americans as “socialism for the rich.” “With all due respect to my Republican colleagues, a $2k direct payment for individuals and families who are struggling is not socialism,” Graham tweeted. “In my view it is necessary in the times in which we live.” Last month, congressional leaders reached a long-sought deal on a new coronavirus package that included $600 checks for taxpayers, though both Democrats and President Trump have called for the amount to be increased to $2,000.

    President Donald Trump and Team Trump attorney Jenna Ellis have both indicated that there are no plans to use the Insurrection Act and impose Martial Law to intervene on the contested election. However, there are other routes to take using military involvement which attorney Sidney Powell could potentially be suggesting through her telegram channel.Powell has developed a very powerful tool for communicating in an ‘end around’ the corrupt corporate media. The new medium — the encrypted app Telegram, which is very easy to use and very effective.The legacy media has lost all credibility and is dying; a Telegram channel is...

    President-elect Joe Biden called Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) "a personal disappointment" when asked about his friendship with his former Senate colleague in an interview that aired on Friday. "Lindsey's been a personal disappointment because I was a personal friend of his," Biden told talk show host Stephen Colbert when asked whether he could patch things up with the Republican senator. Biden and Graham served in the Senate together before Biden became vice president in 2009. Graham has previously spoken emotionally about his friendship with Biden, notably calling him "the nicest person I think I’ve ever met in politics" in a...

    Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) is poised to become the chairman of the Budget Committee if Republicans keep the Senate. He said he wants to create a new commission to propose ways to reduce the deficit and address the country’s debt. “I think we’ve got to understand that we’re going to be raising the debt ceiling in perpetuity if we don’t find a way to bend the curve,” Graham said. The battle over spending could quickly come to a head with fights looming over budgets, pandemic spending and the debt ceiling, which was suspended under a deal between Trump and Congress....

    Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) said that he would investigate “all credible allegations of voting irregularities and misconduct” after receiving a sworn affidavit from a Pennsylvania postal worker alleging officials devised a plan to backdate mail ballots. The senator’s remarks came less than two hours after The Associated Press and other news outlets officially projected Joe Biden and Kamala Harris the winners in the race for White House. President Trump has since refused to concede, repeating his claims without evidence that there have been several cases of voter fraud as part of a Democratic effort to steal the...

    South Carolina state Rep. Nancy Mace (R) is projected to unseat Rep. Joe Cunningham (D-S.C.) in the state’s 1st Congressional District. The Associated Press called the race at 2:04 a.m. EST. Mace’s victory returns the district to GOP control after Cunningham became the first Democrat since 1981 to win it in 2018. Numerous national Republicans endorsed her bid, including President Trump, second lady Karen Pence and former South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley, who also served as U.N. ambassador under Trump. Mace, who was elected to the state legislature in a 2018 special election, was the first woman to graduate from...

    Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.), who is battling for his Senate career in a toss-up re-election race, on Sunday brushed off a sharp attack from Fox Business host Lou Dobbs, telling reporters, “I don’t really worry much about Mr. Dobbs.” Graham, when asked whether he wanted President Trump to stand up for him against attacks from the right, said Dobbs “has a right to his own opinion” but “people at home get the big picture.” “I think people in South Carolina understand why it’s important for me to get re-elected,” Graham said. Dobbs on Friday expressed incredulity over why conservatives are...

    The race for the South Carolina first congressional district is far more competitive than Democrats would have you believe. In fact, according to new polling released on Monday morning by Republican challenger Nancy Mace – she has taken the lead in her battle to unseat first-term Democrat Joe Cunningham. According to a Monday morning news release from Mace’s campaign, the second-term state representative from Daniel Island, S.C. is drawing the support of 47 percent of likely first district voters in her bid to reclaim this Lowcountry coastal district – which was held by the GOP for nearly four decades prior...
