Sen. Lindsey Graham said today that he wants to see former national security adviser John Bolton's manuscript.
“What we have to do here is evaluate the manuscript and see if it's a reason to add to the record,” he said.
Asked if he would support a subpoena to get the manuscript, the South Carolina Republican said, “I want to know what's in the manuscript, yeah, I think that’s important.”
He said the manuscript could change his thinking on calling witnesses.
“It could. I don’t know yet. The White House said there was no direct evidence of communications, maybe this suggests that one person said there might be," he said.
Graham emphasized that if Republicans do anything to call new documents or Bolton, they will also call the Bidens.
“What I’ve said all along is if you’re going to add to the record, we’re going to do it in a balanced way. So let’s see what’s in the manuscript, let’s see if it’s relevant, and if it is, then I’ll make a decision about Bolton,” said Graham. “But I promise you this— if we add to the record, then we’re going to call Hunter Biden, Joe Biden, all these other people.”
“I have no idea how this happened,” he added. “I don’t know who leaked this. They say they didn’t do it. I’m not going to make a commitment about something I don’t know.”
Remember: There's no evidence of wrongdoing by the Bidens.
