GOP Sen Lindsey Graham Says Lying To FBI Is Not A ‘Big Event’ As He Attempts To Defend Trump

Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) tried to defend Donald Trump on Sunday while appearing on Face the Nation claiming that lying to the FBI is not a “big event.”

During the interview, host John Dickerson asked the Republican Senator what he thought about Trump’s former campaign chairman Paul Manafort’s plea deal to cooperate with special counsel Robert Mueller.

“I don’t know yet,” Graham answered. “I know that from the [Judiciary Committee] point of view we found no evidence of collusion between the Trump campaign and the Russians. I think [Senate Intelligence Committee Chairman] Richard Burr said from the Intel point of view that he has seen no evidence of collusion.”

Dickerson asked Graham what he thought of Mueller’s investigation so far.

That’s when the Republican lawmaker said that lying to the FBI doesn’t hold the same weight as other convictions.

“You got to look at the substance of what people pled to,” Graham said. “Some people pled to lying to the FBI like [George Papadopoulos] got two weeks in jail.”

“I don’t see that as a big event,” Graham added. “Manafort could have a lot of stuff or he could just have stuff around financial transactions. I don’t know yet. You don’t look at the numbers.”
