Page Six reports:
Sen. Lindsey Graham on Friday gave a commercial flight a private preview of his appearance on CBS’s “Face the Nation,” a source told Page Six, including calling the whistleblower controversy “Kavanaugh on steroids!”
We’re told that the South Carolina pol was on a JetBlue flight from Washington, DC, to Charleston and was chatting loudly with “Jared” — presumably White House adviser Jared Kushner — before takeoff.
Our source related, “He was like, ‘We need to know why Hunter [Biden] was receiving $50K’ ” for being on the board of Ukrainian gas company Burisma. “He then said, ‘You can’t impeach someone on hearsay.’ He was laying out his story for Sunday.”
Graham’s spokesman didn’t deny the report.

“Apparently discussing the controversial whistleblower complaint involving President Trump’s interactions with Ukraine and the Bidens, Graham was overheard uttering, ‘This is Kavanaugh on steroids! This is hearsay — and this person has bias.’” –@PageSix https://t.co/yduwLVcxvZ

Weekend at the WH. Pres Trump has no public or press events at this writing. But @LindseyGrahamSC says he’ll be playing golf with Pres Trump on Saturday. By my count, it’ll be Graham’s 10th time golfing with @POTUS, one of most frequent partners we know of.
