Graham, son of the late evangelist Billy Graham, pointed out to ”Eric Bolling The Balance” the FBI search of former President Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago residence and a proposal by congressional Democrats to double the IRS’ staff.

Graham then turned to Democratic proposals to expand the IRS, sharing his organization’s experience with the agency under the administration of then-President Barack Obama.
