Monday night Senator Graham took to the Sean Hannity show to discuss:What is happening to Judge Brett Kavanaugh; an 11th hour accusation of sexual molestation dating back 35 years — is “part of a pattern,” Sen. Lindsey Graham told Fox News’s Sean Hannity Monday night.“I think it’s part of a pattern. They can’t beat him on the law so they are trying to destroy his life. If a conservative had edited a tape of a liberal nominee to the court where you take their words and turn them upside down.” Graham was referring to the notion that judge Kavanaugh used the word or term ‘abortion-inducing drugs,’ when it was the plaintiff, the Priests for Life.
ㅤ"’I am disappointed that not one Democrat came. What does that say? It’s not for me to tell you what that says. It hurts me. Because I work across the aisle on a regular basis. I think it was a mistake, because there’s too much going on in this region,’ LindseyGraham said, noting that there has long been bipartisan support for American recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital."
ㅤô¿ô …What a surprise. Democrats have become so predictable. There is no way all the Dems are representing the people who elected them, that being the true enemy of our Representative Democracy.

SEN. LINDSEY GRAHAM CALLS ON TRUMP TO FOLLOW THROUGH WITH SYRIA THE WAY ‘OBAMA NEVER DID’ㅤ
Pictured: Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC)
ㅤô¿ô …As usual, I disagree with Graham. The USA succeeded in its objective to drive ISIS out of Syria. The fact that Assad continues use chemical weapons after a U.S. military response indicates we can’t stop Assad.
ㅤIt’s time for Americans to get the hell out of Syria. However, as Afghanistan is the hub of terrorism in the Mideast and Pakistan, the U.S. must maintain the terrorism deterrent in Afghanistan which has been successful so far.

ㅤ”The centrist deal, backed by Sens. Susan Collins (Maine), Jeff Flake (Ariz.) and Lindsey Graham (S.C.) and other Republicans, represented perhaps the best chance to advance legislation in the Senate, but was opposed by Trump and his allies in part because it did not cover all four immigration ‘pillars’ he had demanded.”

ㅤô¿ô …No way. The Trump admin is right about Graham. He may have experience with Clinton’s impeachment. But he is out-of-touch with current doubt about Mueller’s objectivity. The GOP has justifiable reason to vote against impeachment if it is based solely on the special counsel investigation.

ㅤ”A GOP aide told the Examiner that allowing Graham to take part in immigration discussions could ruin the chances of any deal being reached on the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program.
ㅤ’Anything that Graham is a leader on is, honestly, dead on arrival in terms of the White House and also in the House,’ the aide told the publication. ‘The problem right now, even more than policies, is the personalities, the people who want to spearhead their sides of the aisle. I don’t think Graham carries weight in the GOP conference.’
ㅤStaffers within the White House also said Durbin would be difficult to work with on the issue.
ㅤ’I respect Durbin and the rest of them, but their version of solving this problem is not the President’s version of solving this problem,’ a senior White House aide said. ‘What Sen. Graham, Sen. Durbin, Sen. Flake, those kinds of people are doing relative to a DACA bill is just not where [Trump] is, and not where the Senate and the House is.'”
ㅤô¿ô …I say it’s about time.

ㅤ”‘I told the President that if Graham-Cassidy became law tomorrow, you’ve got two or three years before this thing gets implemented. You’ve got to do something in the interim period,’ Lindsey Graham said in an interview. ‘You can’t save Obamacare but you can keep the markets from collapsing until we get a replacement, which will be Graham-Cassidy.'”
