Graham calls for hearing on McCabe firing

Sen. Lindsey Graham on Sunday said the Senate Judiciary Committee should hold a hearing on Attorney General Jeff Sessions’ firing of FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, telling CNN’s “State of the Union” that the decision merits extra scrutiny “to make sure it wasn't politically motivated.”

“I think we owe it to the average American to have a hearing in the Judiciary Committee, where Mr. Sessions, Attorney General Sessions, comes forward with whatever documentation he has about the firing, and give Mr. McCabe a chance to defend himself,” said Graham (R-S.C.), who sits on the committee.

“I believe, when it comes to this issue, we need as much transparency as possible to make sure it wasn't politically motivated.”

McCabe’s firing late Friday came just before the former deputy director’s scheduled retirement Sunday, likely denying him the pension he would have received had he been allowed to retire as planned. Sessions said the firing was prompted by a forthcoming inspector general report expected to accuse McCabe of unauthorized leaks to the media and lacking candor in interactions with investigators.

McCabe has said he is the target of a smear campaign by the Trump administration because of his role in the FBI’s Russian investigation and his ties to special counsel Robert Mueller and fired FBI Director James Comey.
