Graham Calls For Senate Hearing On McCabe Firing

The Hill reports:

Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) on Sunday said he believes the Senate Judiciary Committee should hold a hearing on the firing of former FBI deputy director Andrew McCabe.

“I think we owe it to the average American to have a hearing in the judiciary committee where Attorney General Sessions comes forward with whatever documentation he has about the firing, and give Mr. McCabe the chance to defend himself,” Graham, a member of the panel, said on CNN’s “State of the Union.”

“I believe when it comes to this issue we need as much transparency as possible to make sure it wasn’t politically motivated,” he added. Sessions on Friday fired McCabe. President Trump, who has personally attacked McCabe in the past, quickly praised that decision on Twitter, accusing McCabe of corrupt tactics and calling his firing a “great day for Democracy.”
