Graham: Anyone “Celebrating” Russian Interference is a Political Hack

Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) says that Republicans who are celebrating Russia’s hacking into email servers during the 2016 presidential election are “making a huge mistake” and “political hacks.”

Sunday on NBC’s Meet the Press Graham said, “To my Republican friends who are gleeful, you’re making a huge mistake.”

He went on to criticize those same Republicans in the following statement:

“When Wikileaks released information during the Bush years about the Iraq War that was embarrassing to the administration, that put our troops at risk most Democrats condemned it, some celebrated it. Most Republicans are condemning what Russia did and to those who are gleeful, you’re a political hack. You’re not a Republican and you’re not a patriot.”

“When one party is compromised all of us are compromised. And here’s what I’m going to do with Senator McCain, we will introduce sanctions that are bipartisan that go beyond the sanctions today against Russia that will hit them in the financial sector and the energy sector where they’re the weakest. And we’re going to give President Trump an opportunity to make Russia pay a price for interfering in our elections so it will deter others in the future. I hope you will take advantage of it.”
