South Carolina sen. Lindsey Graham to attorney General Barr testified that the spying on Trump campaign has occurred.

Sen. Lindsey Graham said on Sunday that the Russians “again” when it comes to interference in the elections in the United States and called on President Trump to crack down on Moscow’s efforts in the case of faults.

Graham, R-S. C., broke with the White house senior adviser Jared Kushner’s assertion that Russia’s role in the election disturbances in the year 2016 “was a couple of Facebook ads,” and said the government of President Vladimir Putin is trying to pit “Americans against the other,” if it’s hacked, Democratic E-Mails.

“This is not a big deal, this is a couple of Facebook ads,” Graham said in an interview on CBS’ “Face the Nation”. “You were actually in the campaign E-Mail system of the Democratic party…An attack on one party is an attack on all.”


Graham added: “Everything that we did not have to work with the Russians. We need more sanctions, not less. More Sanctions.”

Graham, a close confidant of trump, and the Chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, promised to work with both the heads of the Senate Intelligence and the Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee, “harden our infrastructure against Russia or anyone else in 2020.”


“The takeaway for me is that they were very involved in the election in 2016, they are with us again. I would like to stop you. And a way to stop them is to give you a price to pay,” he said.

In his report to Attorney General William Barr, Special Counsel Robert Mueller to the conclusion that the Russian government handle in the 2016 presidential election “in the profound and systematic manner”, and that his efforts were designed to Trump.


The FBI warned of a trump campaign in July 2016, Russia would probably try to infiltrate or influence their election efforts. This month, Trump publicly called on Russia to find some of Clinton’s missing E-Mails, a note, which he identified later as a joke. And in October, the U.S. intelligence community released a unanimous statement by accused formally of Russia, was behind the hacking of the Democratic National Committee, a conclusion Trump repeatedly challenged.


Müller wrote that the Trump campaign, “it would have stolen the election system of information to profit and published by Russian efforts.” But the special counsel said, the investigators concluded, “During the investigation, numerous connections between individuals with connections to the Russian government, and individuals in connection with the trump campaign were not, the evidence was sufficient to support the criminal complaint.”
