Senate Judiciary Committee chairman Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) on Sunday took aim at former FBI Director James Comey on Twitter, hinting toward possibly bringing in Comey for committee questioning in the wake of special counsel Robert Mueller’s report.
In his response to a particularly broody Sunday tweet by Comey, Graham — an outspoken advocate of President Donald Trump — set the stage in seven words on Twitter to potentially bringing in Comey for questioning in front of the Senate Judiciary Committee.
Proclaiming that he “could not agree more” with Comey’s statement of “so many questions,” Graham told the former FBI director that he’d “see [him] soon,” alluding that Comey may face another round of questioning from the Senate Judiciary Committee.
Could not agree more.
See you soon. https://t.co/KNGzyDizdq

Graham’s tweet came the same day Attorney General William Barr delivered his bombshell letter to Congress containing the key findings of the Mueller report, where Mueller’s investigation concluded that the 2016 Trump presidential campaign did not collude with Russia.
The South Carolina senator serves as the chairman of the Senate Committee on the Judiciary, succeeding President Pro-Tempore of the Senate Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa).
The report also said that Mueller’s investigation could not conclude whether or not Trump obstructed justice while serving in the Oval Office. Barr and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein opted not to go after the president for obstruction after going through the Mueller report.
Graham said last month that he wanted to bring in former acting FBI Director Andrew McCabe for committee questioning following his explosive “60 Minutes” interview in which he claimed that the Department of Justice weighed the idea of invoking the 25th Amendment to remove the president from power, as IJR Red previously reported.
Graham — once a staunch critic of the president during the 2016 campaign cycle — changed his attitude toward Trump, saying that the president “exceeded every expectation [Graham] had.”
