I've spent years saying I do NOT believe Sens. Graham and Paul are on the receiving end of foreign leverage. I've said that because there's no evidence of it. There's STILL no evidence of it. So all I'll say is that I have NO explanation for the bizarre behavior of these two men.

(2 of 2) And here's a link to Paul acting like a lunatic. Obviously I'm suspicious at the Russian cash flowing into Kentucky, and of course Paul and Graham have received suspicious donations, but that's not enough for me to see leverage rather than lunacy.

PS/ One of the countless articles on strange donations made to GOP senators and others. But I still can't believe it's enough to get these men to betray America. Either they're just lunatics who're actually unwell or some unknown other thing is happening. 

PS2/ A reader observes that Graham *may* consider himself a promising 2024 #MAGA candidate if he keeps exhibiting unwavering loyalty to Trump and none of Trump's kids run for office. It's possible, given that Graham has run for president before and clearly wants the Oval Office.
