Lindsey Graham: Don't #ReleaseTheMemo yet

Sen. Lindsey Graham said on ABC's "This Week" that House Intelligence Committee chairman Rep. Devin Nunes should not yet release the four-page memo he wrote alleging FBI abuses of FISA. "I want somebody outside of the Republican-led congress to look at the allegations," he said.

The backdrop: The Washington Post reported this morning that President Trump — who has the power to make the memo public — wants it released.

Highlights from Graham's interview:

  • Should the RNC return funds donated by Steve Wynn, who has been accused of sexual assault and harassment? "We should do of ourselves what we ask of the Democratic party."
  • On the White House's immigration plan, which asks for $25 billion for the border wall: "You don’t need $25 billion for a wall. You need wall systems, you need roads, you need redundancy, you need to fix old fencing ... we’re not going to build a 1,900 mile wall ... we're not going to build a wall in places it shouldn't go."
