Graham urges Trump to defend democracy with Russia sanctions

WASHINGTON — A top Senate Republican is urging President-elect Donald Trump to defend democracy in the United States and around the world by punishing Russia for trying to interfere in the American presidential election as U.S. intelligence agencies allege.

“He’s going to be the defender of the free world here pretty soon,” Sen. Lindsey Graham, a frequent Trump critic, said in remarks broadcast Sunday on NBC’s “Meet the Press.” ‘’All I’m asking him is to acknowledge that Russia interfered, and push back. It could be Iran next time. It could be China.”
