  • Like other Trump supporter, Graham argues Justice Department in the 2016 presidential race with Trump and Democrat nominee Hillary Clinton investigated Clinton about her handle as secretary of State of emails with sensitive government information but conclude actions careless but couldn’t be prosecuted.
