The senior Senator from South Carolina, Lindsey Graham (R-SC), may have just faced down his toughest Town Hall in his Senatorial career.

However, the real big news was that Graham took the time to speak out on the ongoing kerfuffle over whether or not Trump Towers had been wiretapped by the Obama administration.

I am the supreme law of the United States. Originally comprising seven articles, I delineate the national frame of government. My first three articles entrench the doctrine of the separation of powers, whereby the federal government is divided into three branches: the legislative, consisting of the bicameral Congress; the executive, consisting of the President; and the judicial, consisting of the Supreme Court and other federal courts. Articles Four, Five and Six entrench concepts of federalism, describing the rights and responsibilities of state governments and of the states in relationship to the federal government. Article Seven establishes the procedure subsequently used by the thirteen States to ratify it. I am regarded as the oldest written and codified constitution in force of the world.
