Note: This is not a "Saturday Night Live" skit.

On Sunday, Republican Senator Lindsey Graham said he has never sent an email. Not one.

He does appear to know what an email is, however.

In reference to the Hillary Clinton controversy surrounding the private email address she used during her time at the State Department, "Meet the Press" host Chuck Todd asked the South Carolina senator if he, too, had a private email address.

"I don't email," Graham responded bluntly. "You can have every email I've ever sent. I've never sent one."

Graham continued -- unfazed by his admission except to say "I don't know what that makes me" -- to criticize the former secretary of state. "Did she communicate on behalf of Clinton Foundation as secretary of state? Did she call the terrorist attack in Benghazi a terrorist attack in real time?"

"I want to know," Graham said. "And the one thing I'll never agree to is let the State Department tell us what emails we should receive or let her and her team tell us some independent group should do that."

Graham's attack on Clinton comes as other Republican lawmakers weighed in on the controversy on the Sunday political talk shows. 

South Carolina Republican Rep. Trey Gowdy, who is overseeing the Benghazi committee investigating the Obama administration’s handling of the 2012 attacks in Libya, said on CBS’ “Face the Nation" that “it’s not up to Secretary Clinton to decide what’s a public document and what’s not.” On CNN's "State of the Union," Rep. Darrell Issa said it'd be a crime if investigators were to find out that Clinton knowingly withheld emails from congressional investigators. And Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said he was a "bit worried" in regards to the security of Clinton's emails, adding that they "would have been prime targets for cyber attacks."

Clinton has asked the State Department to release 55,000 pages of emails, tweeting last week: "I want the public to see my email."
