New Emails Expose Close Relationship Between Lindsey Graham and Top Hillary Aides
New emails expose affinity between top Hillary deputies and NeverTrump GOP senator

Long before Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) became a prominent NeverTurmper, he appears to have been a favorite Republican among the Clinton camp.
According to emails obtained by Citizens United through a Freedom of Information Act request and first given to LifeZette, Clinton Foundation executive Doug Band referred to Graham as the “bff” of longtime Hillary Clinton confidante Huma Abedin in November 2009.
At the time, Band was traveling with former president Bill Clinton to a conference in Israel and mentioned in an email to Abedin, then the deputy chief of staff at the State Department, that Graham was at the event.
“So funny! Tell him hi,” Abedin replied.
“Lindsey said with all due respect I don’t measure up to Huma,” Band wrote.
