Hot Mic Catches Graham Offering Kerry 'Help' With Boehner

Secretary of State John Kerry appeared on Capitol Hill Thursday to make the case to the Senate Appropriations Committee on approving an aid package to Ukraine.

After his testimony, Sen. Lindsey Graham approached Kerry to offer help negotiating with House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) -- an exchange caught on the desk microphone before Kerry turned it off.

"Hey John, good job," Graham said. "Let me know what I can do to help you with Boehner."

During his testimony, Kerry pressed Congress to include reforms to the International Monetary Fund, as proposed by the Obama administration, in an aide package to Ukraine.

Boehner, however, has remained firm in his opposition to the IMF boost.

"Let's make sure we all understand something: The IMF money has nothing to do with Ukraine," he said Thursday.
