Countable Explains: Who's Who in the Russia Investigation

Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC)


Member of the Senate Judiciary Committee subcommittee on crime and terrorism; South Carolina Republican


"I believe a fresh start will serve the FBI and the nation well."

    I have not been a fan of Senator Graham’s policies but I do see him as loyal patriot of America and think he will support the Russian investigations and help get the answers we need to find out the truth wherever they lead.
