On Friday, Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) attempted to brush President Donald Trump’s scandals under the rug while interviewing with Fox News Host Neil Cavuto.
Graham confessed that he didn’t always believe that Trump told the truth but argued his actions mean more than his words.
While talking about campaign fiance violations, Russian hacking, and adult film star Stormy Daniels, Cavuto asked, “Do you believe everything the president has said on these subjects?”
“No. He is always under siege. He is saying this one minute and that the next. It’s what he does that matters,” Graham responded.
He added, “He is like every other person. Bill Clinton lied about having sexual relationships with that woman. I voted against that article of impeachment because I think most people would lie to protect their family.”
“I’m the one Republican to vote against that article of impeachment because I think the average person in that circumstance would be compelled to lie,” he said. “Did Trump do some of this? I don’t know, but I think I would at least understand it. Lying about sex wasn’t enough for me then and it’s not enough now.”

About 75% of Trump’s proposed coronavirus capital gains tax cut would go to the top 1% of earners
Trump has repeatedly floated a cut to capital gains taxes, which are taxes paid by investors on profits made when an asset, like stock or real estate, is sold. The capital gains tax rate is already 35% lower than the top income tax rate, and only about 6% of households in the bottom 80% of earners claim any capital gains, meaning the overwhelming majority of benefits would flow to the wealthy.
