Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) has been frequently mocked for transforming himself from a staunch Trump critic into one of his most devoted defenders — and a new report from ethics watchdog Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington will only add more fuel to that fire.

Other lawmakers who have frequented Trump’s properties on a regular basis include Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) and Rep. Kevin McCarthy (R-CA), who have visited Trump properties 11 times, and Rep. Mark Meadows (R-NC), who has visited Trump properties nine times.

Graham’s devotion to enriching the president by going to his resorts drew swift ridicule from CREW’s Twitter followers — as well as from Democrat Jaime Harrison, who is running against Graham for the Senate next year.

Check out some more reactions below.

It's not clear why, or who is receiving those checks. But experts say that the address may be of interest to Manhattan District Attorney Cy Vance, who in a court filing earlier this week made his clearest statements yet about the scope and focus of his criminal investigation into President Trump's finances.

Fox News got to claim victory on Thursday after a new ruling in a lawsuit brought against the company came out in its favor, but the win arrived at a steep cost. To deflect an allegation of defamation, the network was forced to claim that one of its highest-profile personalities can't reasonably be expected to consistently provide accurate information to viewers.

Here's the background. Karen McDougal, a former Playboy model, was paid for her silence about an affair she said she had with Donald Trump during the 2016 election by America Media, Inc., the parent company of the National Enquirer, on the Republican campaign's behalf these details were exposed and confirmed in the case against former Trump lawyer Michael Cohen, who pleaded guilty to participating in the illegal campaign finance scheme.
