“Lock Her Up!”: With Trump in Attendance, Crowd at Mar-a-Lago Fundraiser Cheers Lindsey Graham Call to Investigate Hillary Clinton Over Dossier
Hours after the Mueller report was released with no new indictments, President Donald Trump and First Lady Melania attended a GOP Lincoln Day Dinner fundraiser held at Trump’s Mar-a-Lago estate in Palm Beach, Florida, Friday night. Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) headlined the dinner; former Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi was the emcee. Press was barred from the event but a few bits leaked out.

Video of the President and First Lady addressing the crowd was posted by Politico reporter Marc Caputo. Caputo noted Trump did not mention the Mueller report released earlier Friday to Attorney General William Barr.
