Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) asserted this week that President Trump is unable to distinguish between arguments that Russia interfered in the election and accusations that his campaign was in contact with Russia’s government.
Graham told The Washington Post for a story published Saturday that Trump’s inability to distinguish between the two assertions is based on his concerns that any acknowledgement of Russia’s role in the 2016 election undercut his legitimacy as president.
The article goes on to state the following:
“The biggest problem is that he believes meddling equals collusion,” Graham said. “Nobody else believes that. I think he’s very sensitive about going there because he thinks it undercuts his legitimacy.”
Trump faced sharp criticism from members of his own party, including Graham’s top ally in the Senate, Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.), after he appeared to side with Russian President Vladimir Putin against the assessment of his own intelligence agencies on the scope of Russia interference in 2016.
McCain and other lawmakers sternly rebuked Trump over the remarks, with the Arizona senator calling Trump’s performance “disgraceful.”
