Sen. Lindsey Graham: Trump's Misleading Statement 'Bothers Me'

NBC's "Today"

By    |   Tuesday, 01 Aug 2017 04:55 PM

Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., on Tuesday said during an appearance on NBC's "Today" show that he was bothered about a report that said President Donald Trump crafted a misleading statement to the media regarding Donald Trump Jr.'s meeting with a Kremlin-linked lawyer.

"It bothers me a lot because, one, he put his son in jeopardy. Now we have to wonder about what Don Jr.'s team will tell you about what he actually did," he said. "If you didn't know about the email, the statement may have fooled you. If you know about the email with Don Jr., it's a misleading statement."

A Washington Post story published Monday said Trump, against the advice of his staff, personally dictated the statement his son gave to The New York Times — a statement that was later shown to be misleading.

"If that's true, then that was a bad decision by the president, which will make us ask more questions," said Graham when NBC host Matt Lauer suggested that Trump was trying to cover up the truth. "When you get caught in a lie about one thing it makes it harder to just say, 'let the other stuff go.'"
