Lindsey Graham: Kushner Report Could Be Russian Disinformation

The GOP senator expressed the belief that Russia could be spreading disinformation to undermine the Trump administration.

Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) said on Sunday that he does not trust reports that President Trump’s son-in-law Jared Kushner tried to establish a back-channel to Russia.

“I think it makes no sense that the Russian ambassador would report back to Moscow on a channel that he most likely knows we’re monitoring. The whole storyline is suspicious,” Graham said.

“I’ve never been more concerned and suspicious about all things Russia than I am right now, so I’m not going to jump to the conclusion that [Evan] McMullin jumped to,” he continued.

CNN’s Dana Bash asked Graham if Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak purposefully made these comments on an insecure channel to undermine the Trump administration.

“That’s a possibility,” Graham said. He then cited the fake Russian document upon which then-FBI Director James Comey acted during the 2016 election.

According to Graham, the potency of Russian disinformation clouded investigations into the Trump campaign’s connections to the Russian government.
