Sen. Lindsey Graham (SC) said Sunday that Senate Republicans are planning to investigate the whistleblower whose report led to Donald Trump’s impeachment, as well as former Vice President Joe Biden’s son, Hunter after the trial concludes as early as Wednesday.
On Fox News’ “Sunday Morning Futures,” Graham said that Americans should expect more investigations from Republicans in “the coming weeks.”
“The Senate Intel Committee under Richard Burr has told us that they will call the whistleblower,” Graham said. “I want to understand how all this crap started.”
Graham also urged Sen. James Risch, chairman of the Foreign Relations Committee, to interview former Secretary of State John Kerry’s former chief of staff about how Biden handled Ukraine while his son held a position on Burisma’s board.
“If the whistleblower is a former employee of — associate of Joe Biden, I think that would be important. If the whistleblower was working with people on [Democratic Rep. Adam] Schiff’s staff that wanted to take Trump down a year-and-a-half ago, I think that would be important. If the Schiff staff people helped write the complaint, that would be important. We’re going to get to the bottom of all of this to make sure this never happens again,” he added

“Let me tell Republicans out there: You should expect us to do this. If we don’t do it, we’re letting you down,” Mr. Graham said.
