Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) has announced the Senate Judiciary Committee will soon begin holding hearings regarding General Michael Flynn, former Foreign Policy Adviser Carter Page and the Obama administration’s involvement in the Russia probe.

On Thursday, he confirmed the hearings will begin June 1st. He also expressed his great concern over the potential precedent that could be established by calling a former president to testify.

“No president’s above the law, but we do have separations of powers. I think it’d be a bad precedent to compel a former president to come before the Congress. That would open up a can of worms and, for a variety of reasons, I don’t think that’s a good idea. But we will do a lot of oversight.”– Lindsey Graham, U.S. Senator

Earlier this week, Director of National Intelligence Richard Grenell sent Congress a list of Obama administration officials who “unmasked” General Flynn, which later turned into the FBI ambushing him.

Sen. Graham has questioned whether there was enough evidence to initiate the Mueller investigation in the first place. In the meantime, he has opened the door for former President Obama or President Trump to come testify as part of the committee’s investigation.

This came after the president encouraged Sen. Graham to call Obama to testify.
