Sen. Lindsey Graham’s (R-SC) Democratic opponent just called the senator’s bluff.

Last week, Graham demanded that his Democratic opponent Jaime Harrison release his taxes. It was an odd demand, given Graham’s golfing buddy, President Donald Trump, continues to fight attempts to see his taxes.

In a passionate press conference, Graham proclaimed his commitment to government transparency. But he has yet to apply the same philosophy to his friend.

“I think you should release your tax returns if you’re running for president in 2020,” Graham said in 2019. “I think everybody should. That’s just my view. It’d be good for the country.”

He hasn’t echoed the same sentiment as the November election nears, however.

President Donald Trump and first lady Melania Trump went to the Supreme Court Thursday morning to pay their respects to the late Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg but they were met with a very unfriendly audience.

Trump then hung his head and walked inside the building rather than listen to the jeers.

A whopping 62 percent of Americans don't want Trump to appoint the next Supreme Court justice, according to a Reuters poll posted earlier this week.

During a press conference on Wednesday, Trump refused to commit to a peaceful transfer of power if he loses in November.

"We're going to have to see what happens. You know that I have been complaining very strongly about the ballots. And the ballots are a disaster,” he remarked. “Get rid of the ballots and you'll have a very peaceful — there won't be a transfer frankly. There'll be a continuation.”

Republicans call out Trump’s comments on refusing to leave peacefully — but never mention him by name

Published

Several Republican lawmakers on Thursday seemingly called out President Donald Trump for refusing to say if he'd allow for a peaceful transfer of power -- but none of them actually mentioned the president by name.

Sen. Mitt Romney (R-UT) was the first out of the gate on Wednesday night, when he tweeted that "any suggestion that a president might not respect this Constitutional guarantee is both unthinkable and unacceptable."

He was followed on Thursday morning by Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL), who more opaquely said that "as we have done for over two centuries we will have a legitimate & fair election" and "at noon on Jan 20,2021 we will peacefully swear in the President."
