05-25hhs-graham

Transcript:

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?

LG: No.

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?

LG: No.

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.

Senator John Thune On Whether The Senate Will Be In Session In August

Email Email Print

Senator John Thune joined me this morning to discuss the Senate’s August schedule (and a new circuit judge nominee for the Eighth Circuit):

Audio:

05-24hhs-thune

Transcript:

HH: Joined now by United States Senator John Thune from the great state of South Dakota. He along with John Cornyn, Mitch McConnell, lead the Republicans in the Senate. John Thune is the chair of the Senate Conference. Senator Thune, welcome back, always a pleasure to talk to you.

JT: Always great to be with you. Thanks, Hugh.

HH: Is the Senate staying in session in August?

JT: We will if necessary. If there are things we can do, and you know, judges we can clear, and if we can actually get the Democrats to cooperate on some appropriations bills, there are, if there are things that we can get done, yes. Our members are committed to keeping the agenda moving forward.

HH: Now let’s get more specific, because there are obviously going to be judge nominees if Judiciary does its job every two weeks and hold hearings and they’re requiring 30 hours. There are going to be a lot of nominees to work on.

JT: Yeah.

HH: Are you saying that you’re going to stay there all August if there is any nominee out of the Judiciary Committee that could be acted on?

JT: Well, you know, we’re keeping, as long as the administration will keep filling the pipeline, we’re going to keep processing them. And you know, there may be some cooperation from Democrats. I think that Senator Schumer is going to be very interested in getting his vulnerable Democrats who are running this year back home into their states. And so we’re going to be interested to see whether or not they’ll work with us to clear nominees, both judicial and executive, and whether or not they’ll help us move funding bills. And I think the next couple of months, we’ll know the answer to that. But if they don’t, and if that’s what it takes to get some of this stuff done, yeah. Our folks are committed to doing it.
