When word came from CBS last week that former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe essentially admitted to sedition and being part of a conspiracy to remove an elected president of the United States from office for no apparent reason other than he wasn’t one of the people approved by a group that was not elected, shock reverberated across the land.
A follow up to that story, leaked testimony from former FBI counsel James Baker, appeared in Fox News’s offerings and seemed to confirm that a group of people in the cabinet and associated agencies were actively working to use the 25th amendment as a way to remove President Trump. (That could well be why there were so many stories about his mental state for a while.)
One place where the earthquake was felt keenly was with the Senate Judiciary Chairman. Senator Lindsey Graham of South Carolina was particularly disturbed, and during an appearance on Face the Nation Sunday morning, the gentleman of the Senate got a bit heated talking about wanting to know more about the plot that was afoot.
“We’re going to find out what happened here and the only way I know to find out is to call the people in under oath and find out, through questioning, who’s telling the truth because the underlying accusation is beyond stunning,” Graham, the chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, said on CBS’ “Face the Nation.”
Graham added that he also plans to subpoena both McCabe and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein if they won’t voluntarily agree to testify before the committee.
“There is no organization beyond scrutiny,” Graham said. “There is no organization that can’t withstand scrutiny. And the FBI will come out stronger.”
He said: “But we’ve got to get to the bottom of it. What are people to think after they watch “60 Minutes” when they hear this accusation by the acting deputy — acting FBI director that the deputy attorney general encouraged him to try to find ways to count votes to replace the president? That can’t go unaddressed.”
We the people will wait for the rest of the names.
