Madsen has described Senator Lindsey Graham as a “disgrace for the United States.”

US investigative journalist Wayne Madsen has described Senator Lindsey Graham, who is planning to run for president, as a “disgrace for the United States.”

Madsen made the comments in an interview with Press TV on Sunday after the Republican senator said there would be no chance at all for a possible nuclear agreement with Iran to be approved by the US Congress.

In an interview with Fox News on Sunday, Graham described the framework nuclear agreement reached between the Obama administration, its negotiating partners and Iran as “weak.”

“I don’t think there’s a snowball’s chance in Hell this framework will get approved by Congress after review,” the senator said.

The Republican senator was referring to legislation that would allow Congress to review any nuclear deal with Iran before allowing sanctions to be lifted if approved by the House and Senate.

President Barack Obama had earlier threatened to veto the bill, but he said last week that he would sign it.

Madsen also noted that Graham represents the state of South Carolina that has been a rebel against the executive branch during the history.

“Lindsey Graham is a right-wing extremist who happens to be running for president. He hasn’t announced his candidacy yet, but he plans to run,” he said.
