Graham Shuts Down Hirono For Slandering AG Barr

Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham shut down Sen. Mazie Hirono’s questioning Wednesday of Atty. Gen. William Barr, saying she “slandered” Barr “from top to bottom.”

Hirono told Barr, “You’ve chosen to be the president’s lawyer and side with him over the interests of the American people… You lied to Congress. You knew you lied. And now, we know… America deserves better. You should resign.”

During Hirono’s questioning, Graham interrupted, saying, “Not really to this line of questioning. Listen, you’ve slandered this man. You slandered this man from top to bottom, so, if you want more of this, you’re not going to get it, if you want to ask questions, you can.”
