Lindsey Graham decries whistleblower complaint as ‘all hearsay’
Sen. Lindsey Graham on Sunday repeatedly dismissed the whistleblower’s complaint against President Donald Trump as “all hearsay.”
“This seems to me like a political setup. It’s all hearsay. You can’t get a parking ticket conviction based on hearsay. The whistleblower didn’t hear the phone call,” the South Carolina Republican said on CBS’ “Face the Nation,” adding he has “zero problems” with the president’s phone conversation with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky.
Graham pushed back against host Margaret Brennan’s assertion t hat the whistleblower complaint largely matches the White House summary of the call. The evidence laid out in the complaint, she added, is based on information gathered from numerous White House officials.
