Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham announced this week that his committee will hold his first hearing into the origins of the Russia hoax next week.
During an interview Thursday on Hugh Hewitt’s nationally syndicated radio show, Graham revealed the names of 4 top Obama-era officials that he plans to call to testify before his committee.
Among those are former FBI Director James Comey, former Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe, former CIA Director John Brennan and former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper.
Graham added he did not know if former National Security Advisor Susan Rice and former Deputy National Security Advisor Ben Rhodes would be called to testify before his committee but said he was deferring to GOP Sen. Ron Johnson, chairman of the Senate Homeland Security Committee, to investigate matters pertaining to the period between the 2016 presidential election and inauguration.
Below is a partial transcript of Graham and Hewitt’s exchange:
HEWITT: Now I have a series of questions. I just would like to know yes, no, I don’t know as to whether or not you will be calling as a witness to the Judiciary Committee the following people. Will you be subpoenaing James Comey?
Earlier this week, Graham said former Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein will be the first witness to testify in the Russia probe hearing next week.
