Lindsey Graham Urged John McCain To Hand Over Russian Dossier To FBI
Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) informed reporters on Monday that he urged late Senator John McCain (R-AZ) to give the FBI a dossier composed by a former British spy, which heavily detailed potential connections between Donald Trump’s 2016 campaign and the Russian government.
After telling CNN reporters that he’s told President Trump that his longtime friend “deserves better” than all the horrible attacks Trump has been leveling at the deceased war hero, Graham publicly acknowledged he had advanced knowledge of the dossier that enraged President Trump. However, it seems McCain’s role in the dossier was limited.
“I told the President it was not John McCain,” Graham said. “I know because John McCain showed me the dossier. And I told him the only thing I knew to do with it, it could be a bunch of garbage, it could be true, who knows? Turn it over to somebody who’s job it is to find these things out and John McCain acted appropriately.”
