Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham broke the news Wednesday that his campaign email account was hacked by the Russians.
“I do believe the Russians hacked into the DNC. I do believe they hacked into Podesta’s email account. They hacked into my campaign account,” he told CNN on “The Situation Room.” “I do believe that all the information released publicly hurt Clinton and didn’t hurt Trump,” he said.
Wolf Blitzer was unaware that Russia had hacked into Graham’s email accounts. “Our campaign vender that we use was hacked,” Graham said. “We were told by the FBI in August that we were hacked in June.”
In February, Graham “ran out of adjectives” to describe President-elect Donald Trump in front of a group of elites at the 2016 Congressional Dinner. At that dinner, he said the GOP was “bat-Sh$t crazy” without mentioning Hillary Clinton’s name a single time.
In December of 2015, Graham called President-elect Trump a “race baiting, xenophobic, religious bigot” who “is the ISIL man of the year.”
“You know how to make America great again, tell Donald Trump to go to hell,” he added.
Graham is up for re-election in South Carolina in 2020.
