Sen. Graham response to Sessions resignation, media conduct


GREENVILLE, SC (WSPA) – Senator Lindsey Graham has released a statement on the resignation of Attorney General Jeff Sessions.

“Jeff Sessions served our nation well and honorably as Attorney General.  He has dedicated his whole life to conservatism and upholding the Rule of Law. 

“I look forward to working with President Trump to find a confirmable, worthy successor so that we can start a new chapter at the Department of Justice and deal with both the opportunities and challenges our nation faces.

“As to me, I will be part of a larger Republican majority in the United States Senate — working with the President and my Republican and Democratic colleagues — to make America safer and more prosperous.”

He also issued a statement on media conduct during a news conference with President Trump Wednesday.

“It’s apparent to me the White House press corps lives in a bubble and the way they are conducting themselves today will do nothing to improve their standing with the American people.
“Certain members of the press cannot stand the fact that President Trump and Republicans defied expectations in the midterm elections – actually growing our Senate majority.
“The mainstream press are not – in my opinion – ‘Enemies of the People’ but rather ‘Allies of the Democratic Party’ playing an activist role in support of their agenda.”
