Countable Explains: Who's Who in the Russia Investigation

Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC)

Role:

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

Quote:

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

Graham on Trump’s decision to fire FBI Director James Comey

Key dates:

  • May 2017: after being briefed by Deputy AG Rod Rosenstein on the Russia investigation, Graham says, "It was a counterintelligence investigation before now. It appears to me now to be considered a criminal investigation."

  • However, Graham also says he believes the appointment of a special counsel to investigate Russia’s meddling in the election will hamper the House and Senate intelligence committee investigations.

  • August 2017: Graham and Democratic Sen. Cory Booker (N.J.) introduce legislation that would require a judge to approve a Justice Department request to fire Mueller or any other special counsel.

Current mood:

Dogged

    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.
