Graham On Leaks: "Somebody Needs To Go To Jail"

WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham (R-South Carolina) today on Fox News reacted to the leaks of transcripts of President Donald Trump’s calls with foreign leaders. 

  • GRAHAM: “Nobody is above the law in America and you don’t have the right, if you work in the White House or you’re a holdover from the Obama Administration or you’re a professional bureaucrat, to take the law into your own hands. That’s not the way we work here. So somebody needs to go to jail. I applaud [Attorney General] Jeff Sessions for trying to find out who’s doing this ‘cause they’re hurting the ability of the country to function and they’re hurting the presidency itself.”
  • BREAM: “What do you think it’s going to take for these leaks to stop?”

   GRAHAM: “For somebody to go to jail. I’ve never seen anything like it. You know, everyone leaks in the town [Washington, D.C.], but I’ve      never seen transcripts of presidential phone calls on the front page of the Washington Post. How would you like to be a world leader talking      to President Trump? So this undermines his ability to be an effective president. It’s got to stop.”
