Following Wednesday remarks from Speaker John A. Boehner saying IMF aid to Ukraine is unnecessary, Sen. Lindsey Graham personally offered assistance to Secretary of State John Kerry as the House and Senate began debating the appropriate response to the Ukrainian crisis. “Hey John good job,” the South Carolina Republican said to the secretary of State. “Let me know what I can do to help you with Boehner.” Graham’s remarks were caught on a hot mic following a Senate Appropriations Subcommittee hearing on the State Department’s fiscal 2015 budget. Kerry will travel to London Friday to meet with Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov. Correction: 10:23 a.m. üAn earlier version of this post misstated where Kerry is traveling Friday.
