South Carolina’s Lindsey Graham joined me this morning:
HH: I am joined by United States Senator Lindsey Graham from the great state of South Carolina. Happy Memorial Day to you, Senator Graham.
LG: Thank you, Hugh, very much. Appreciate that.
HH: I am reading Facts and Fears, James Clapper’s new book. Have you had a chance to read it, yet, or see it?
HH: All right. On Page 390, he recounts Sally Yates’ appearance before you and other senators. [About] her testimony about General Flynn…he writes, “At one point, she recounted this story. Senator Graham stopped her, asking, ‘okay, and I don’t mean to interrupt you, but this is important to me. How did the conversation between the Russian ambassador and Mr. Flynn make it to the Washington Post?’ I answered,” Clapper says “for us, ‘That’s a great question. All of us would like to know that.’” Senator Graham, do you know the answer to that question, yet?
HH: And why not?
LG: Well, we’re going to keep digging. I mean, clearly there’s a lot of, the past administration has got a lot to answer for. And we’ll keep digging. I think Clapper needs to come back to the committee. I think Comey needs to come back. I think Loretta Lynch needs to come back. And we just, and McCabe needs to come back. Bruce Ohr needs to come before the Judiciary Committee to see if we can find out what the Department of Justice and the FBI did regarding the 2016 Election.
