Graham Statement on Trump's Intel Briefing

WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham (R-South Carolina) made this statement in response to the President-elect Donald Trump’s meeting with Intelligence officials.

“I agree with President-elect Trump that Russian cyberattacks did not affect the vote tally and were not responsible for the outcome.

“I take his statement as an encouraging sign that he wants to push back against those who engaged in cyberattacks against our country’s national security, economic and political interests. More specifically, when it comes to Russia I look forward to working with President-elect Trump to achieve those goals. Now is the time to throw rocks, not pebbles, and a good place for us to start would be to institute additional punishments on Russia for their cyber interference in the 2016 elections.”
