Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) said he wants to “triple down” on efforts to support Ukraine’s fight against Russia, noting global implications beyond Europe that have “no off-ramp.”

While appearing on Fox News Sunday, Graham listed several actions he believes the United States should take to support Ukraine, including passing a $33 billion supplemental package with $20 billion for weapons.

 

In March, Graham’s calls for Putin’s removal from power, including hints at assassination efforts, were met with rebukes from both Republicans and Democrats. The Republican senator stood by his statement, adding “the sooner the better.”

Later that month, while visiting Poland, President Joe Biden also said Putin “cannot remain in power.” The White House later attempted to walk back his comments, calling them an expression of “moral outrage” and not a statement of policy.

Graham also discussed with Bret Baier the leaked draft of the majority opinion in Dobbs v. Women’s Health Organization, which seemed to indicate that the Supreme Court will vote to overturn Roe v. Wade.

“I think Roe v. Wade created a constitutional right that doesn’t exist in the written Constitution,” Graham said. “It’s created division from the first day it was decided until now. If it does get repealed, which I hope it will, the issue goes back to the states, but Congress will still stay involved …The abortion debate will not go away in the country, it will be decided by the people, not a handful of judges.”
