Lindsey Graham Is Either ‘Worried’ of ‘Very Worried’

I’m very worried that our president is suggesting the former president has done something illegal.

It’s my job as United States senator to get to the bottom of this.

Lindsey Graham Must Really Hate the Justices: Cruz for SCOTUS

I’m here to tell my Democratic colleagues that I voted for Obama’s nominees. I expect them to give Trump’s nominees a fair shake. He won this election. He will pick a conservative. I would put Ted Cruz on that list… There are some really strong people in there. And there is no stronger constitutional conservative than Ted Cruz.
