Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) has become a staunch defender of President Donald Trump in recent years, but some of his old comments on the issue of obstruction sound a lot different than what he’s saying today.
Just last month, Graham used one of Trump’s favorite phrases.
Mueller’s redacted report spelled out 10 instances in which Trump may have attempted to obstruct justice. Yet Graham didn’t seem inclined to revise his views based on those details.
Graham, chair of the Senate Judiciary Committee, also said on Thursday that he has no plans to call on Mueller to testify about the investigation.
“He’s done his job,” Graham said, per The Hill. “I’m not going to retry the case.”
