Sen. Lindsey Graham warned his Democratic colleagues that he’s prepared to “fight back” against their election playbook; saying it’s finally time to “change the make-up of the Senate.”
Graham was speaking with Fox News when he was asked to comment on his recent campaign trips across the country to help elect Republicans during the upcoming 2018 midterm election.
LINDSEY GRAHAM UNLEASHED:
"But, what you did is you basically took the rule of law, turned it upside down, you tried to destroy a good man in Brett Kavanaugh. You want power too much. And I’m fighting back. I didn’t do this to your nominees." pic.twitter.com/K25D0UwPr6

“What you did is you basically took the rule of law, turned it upside down, you tried to destroy a good man in Brett Kavanaugh. You want power too much. And I’m fighting back. I didn’t do this to your nominees,” said Graham.
“Now it’s time to change the make-up of the Senate. Chuck Schumer has control over all these people in Trump states. They’re trying to undercut the election. President Trump won all of these states,” he added.
GLOVES OFF: Lindsey Graham Calls James Comey a 'Rat'
Senator Lindsey Graham wants former FBI director James Comey to testify –again- before Congress after recent revelations regarding the bureau’s investigation of Hillary Clinton’s private email server raises serious concerns, saying, “I smell a rat.”
“This doesn’t add up, and I smell a rat here,” the Senator told Fox News. “[James Comey] needs to come back to committee.”
The Republican Senator was referring to newly released information that shows the former FBI chief drafter a letter exonerating Hillary Clinton of any criminal wrongdoing months before he met with the former Secretary and other key witnesses.
Graham and Senator Chuck Grassley came across the information while investigating the former FBI chief’s removal from the Trump administration; reviewing official transcripts and communications between senior Department of Justice officials.
The “draft letter” raises serious ethical and criminal concerns over whether James Comey was pressured to abandon Hillary’s investigation by Obama aides for political purposes.
The former Secretary of State was cleared of any wrongdoing just weeks before the 2016 presidential election.
GRAHAM ON HANNITY: Democrats Have 'NO BOUNDARIES' in 'Destroying' Donald Trump
Sen. Lindsey Graham stopped by ‘Hannity’ Monday night to weigh-in on Judge Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation process; saying “there are no boundaries” when it comes to opposing President Trump and his agenda.
“For [Democrats] to complain about the process is like an arsonist complaining about a fire. The allegations against Judge Kavanaugh are collapsing. This has been the worst low point in the Senate for me and that is saying a lot,” Graham said.
“I never thought it would get this bad. We are going to have a hearing Thursday and have a vote soon thereafter. And I look forward to supporting this good man,” the Senator added. “The takeaway for me, Sean, is that when it comes to Donald Trump, there are no boundaries, there are no rules. Whatever you need to do to destroy him or his agenda is okay.”
