Senator Lindsey Graham delivered a fiery opening statement at former FBI Director Jame Comey’s Senate hearing on Wednesday.
Former FBI Director James Comey faced questioning from the Republican-led Senate Judiciary Committee about his role in leading the bureau’s investigation into ties between the 2016 Trump campaign and Russia. Sen. Lindsey Graham, the committee chair, led the questioning. Comey is the latest high-profile former official from the FBI or Justice Department to testify. The questioning of Comey underscores the extent to which the FBI’s investigation four years ago into potential coordination between Trump’s campaign and Russia remains front-and-center in the minds of Republican lawmakers.
