One of President Donald Trump’s leading defenders on Capitol Hill told Fox News why he is simply ignoring the latest White House scandals.

Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) was interviewed by Brett Baier on Fox News on Tuesday.

“I want to ask you two more questions. One, there’s an investigation out on Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross, if he put his finger on the scale and NOAA scientists and the fallout of the Alabama ordeal we dealt with last week. What’re your thoughts on that?” Baier asked.

“Not going to give a crap,” Graham replied.

“That’s for the record?” Baier asked.

“Yeah, thank you,” Graham replied. “Next question.”

“I could care less, this whole thing is a bunch of garbage,” he continued. “This is the Trump world. The guy can’t do anything — the guy getting criticized by a bunch of people who just hate his guts and I’m not playing that game.”

“The story about the Russian asset that was extracted?” Baier asked.

“Another example of what I think is complete B.S. — trying to blame the president for something that didn’t happen,” Graham replied. “The president is a handful, he makes his fair share of mistakes, but the story about the president damaging our national security I think is unverified and untrue.”

Mitch McConnell crony running for Kentucky AG is ineligible for office: lawsuit

Published

on

On Tuesday, the Lexington Herald-Leader reported that a new lawsuit seeks to remove Daniel Cameron from the ballot as the Kentucky GOP's nominee for state attorney general.

According to the lawsuit, filed by retired union worker and "concerned citizen" Joseph Leon Jackson Sr. in Jefferson Circuit Court, Cameron does not meet the office requirement of having practiced law for eight years — because although he was admitted by the Kentucky Bar Association in 2011, he spent two of the following years clerking for U.S. District Judge Gregory Van Tatenhove.
