Senator Lindsey Graham reacted to the email chain Donald Trump Jr. released by saying “that email is disturbing.”

“On its face, this is very problematic,” he said. “We cannot allow foreign governments to reach out to anybody’s campaign and say we’d like to help you.”

He also made a point of saying that “any time you’re in a campaign and you get an offer from a foreign government to help your campaign, the answer is no.”

Trump Jr. released the full email chain which makes it clear he was told “this is obviously very high level and sensitive information but is part of Russia and its government’s support for Mr. Trump”:

Graham also said earlier that if “there’s an email from a Russian suggesting that the Russian government wants to help, that would be very problematic.”
