Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) confirmed in an interview with NBC this morning that he thinks it's time for Attorney General Jeff Sessions to be replaced with someone who can work with Trump as "this relationship is beyond fix", but vowed that "nobody is going to take Jeff's place that doesn't commit to the Senate and the country as a whole that Mueller will be allowed to finish his job without political interference".
Schumer continued to push his proposal, saying on the Senate floor Tuesday that he was circulating a letter to colleagues urging them to join the effort. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) that he could inherit McCain's dumb jokes, while name-dropping Sen.

Lamar Alexander, R-Tenn., said McCain deserves "a significant memorial" in the nation's capital, adding that the office building where McCain worked and where the Armed Services Committee is housed may be where a memorial should be located.

Graham is "lucky enough to have walked in his shadow". "It's time that we recognize that as times change, so do our heroes".
I'd rather believe that the Senate is still a place where someone believes that some things are more important than politics and that nothing is more important than country. "I cry for a man who had honor and who was always willing to admit to his imperfection".
McCain embodied that message in all that he did - and didn't do - in his own life. In fact, it seemed like he had "ten lives". We have helped liberate more people from tyranny and poverty than ever before in history.
Trump and McCain did not get along.
