Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) is the most recent GOP member to slam the report that there was a plot in the Department of Justice (DOJ) to remove President Donald Trump from office.

Graham tweeted out demands for former acting FBI Director Andrew McCabe to appear before the Senate Judiciary Committee to answer for alleged comments he made during a “60 Minutes” interview.

“After Mr. McCabe’s 60 Minutes interview, it is imperative that he, and others, come before [Senate Judiciary Committee] to fully explain how and why a FISA warrant was issued against Carter Page and answer questions about what appears to be, now more than ever, bias against President Trump,” Graham tweeted.

While the interview will not be aired until Sunday, host Scott Pelley revealed the details of the interview.

“The most illuminating and surprising thing in the interview to me were these eight days in May when all of these things were happening behind the scenes that the American people really didn’t know about. There were meetings at the Justice Department in which it was discussed whether the vice president and a majority of the Cabinet could be brought together to remove the president of the United States under the 25th Amendment.”

As IJR previously reported, Pelley revealed that the talks occurred during the time of Comey’s firing and that the DOJ was attempting to figure out its strategy moving forward.

“The highest levels of American law enforcement were trying to figure out what to do with the president,” Pelley said. “[…] They were counting noses. They were not asking Cabinet members whether they would vote for or against removing the president, but they were speculating — this person would be with us, that person would not be.”

McCabe is the only official to go on record that these conversations took place. He left the FBI in 2018 and was replaced by Christopher Wrey.
