Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) let a rare jab against President Donald Trump fly during his opening remarks at Wednesday’s Senate Judiciary Committee, saying that it was not a “400-pound man on a bed somewhere, it was the Russians.”

“They did it,” he said of 2016 election hacking. “And they’re still doing it.”

Trump said during a September 2016 debate with Hillary Clinton that “it could be Russia, but it could also be China. It could also be lots of other people. It also could be somebody sitting on their bed that weighs 400 pounds, okay?”
