FBI Takes Possession of Lindsey Graham's Phone After He Gets a Strange Message from 'Chuck Schumer' – EVOL

Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina had his phone seized by the FBI this week after he said he received a message from someone impersonating Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer.

Graham said the device might have been hacked as he addressed the strange message while speaking at the annual The Hill and Valley Forum in Washington on Wednesday.

The summit pairs up people in the tech industry, private business and security with lawmakers and other people of influence.

While discussing concerns about espionage and artificial intelligence, the senator steered the conversation toward the topic of cybersecurity.

“My phone is in the hands of the FBI now,” Graham said. “So, I get a message, I think, from Schumer. It ain’t from Schumer.

“And the next thing you know, my phone is — I don’t know — anything you can create apparently can be hacked.”

The senator did not say how long his phone would be in the hands of the FBI.

After Graham’s revelation, NBC News contacted his office, Schumer’s office, the FBI and the U.S.
