U.S. Republican Senator said Russia hacked his email

U.S. Republican Senator said Russia hacked his emailRepublican Senator Lindsey Graham accused Russia in hacking his campaign email account during his interview on CNN on Wednesday.

"I do believe the Russians hacked into the (Democratic National Committee). I do believe they hacked into (John) Podesta's email account. They hacked into my campaign account," he told CNN's Wolf Blitzer on "The Situation Room."

"I do believe that all the information released publicly hurt Clinton and didn't hurt Trump. I don't think the outcome of the election is in doubt,” Graham said.

He believed that the hacking didn’t affect the elections.

"I think Hillary Clinton lost because she wasn't an agent of change and she tried to disqualify Trump and she wasn't able to do it," he said.

Graham added that the U.S. needs to work together to stop this from happening.

“What we should do is not turn on each other but work as one people to push back on Russia," the Senator explained.

"This is not a Republican or Democratic issue," Graham said.

"They're trying to destabilize democracy all over the world. Not just here," he said about the Russians.

"Here's what we should do. We should tell the Russians that on no uncertain terms, you interfere in our elections, we don't care why, we're going to hit you and hit you hard, we're going to introduce sanctions, it'll to be bipartisan."

"Russian hacking during the US presidential election is not a Republican or Democrat issue. It's an American issue. We must stand together," Graham tweeted during the interview.

"If you don't go after Russia for hacking during 2016 election you're inviting other bad actors (China, N. Korea, Iran, etc.) to do the same," he added in tweets.
