Sen. Lindsey Graham, chairman of the Senate Senate Committee, has pledged to launch an investigation into whether the senior officials in the Justice Department and the FBI have planned an "administrative coup" to get President Trump out of office.
Kevin Bishop, Graham's spokeswoman, tells NPR that a date for a hearing has not yet been set.
The senator attending the Munich Security Conference in Germany spoke to CBS Face The Nation after an interview with former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe on 60 minutes .
He also said he would call Rosenstein and McCabe if they were to.
McCabe spoke with NPR Morning Edition and said he tried to stop the allegations in a coup attempt. "I have never failed he ruled that Rod [Rosenstein] or someone else had a legitimate effort to remove the president from the 25th Amendment or in any other way, "he said, through Rosenstein's alleged proposal to carry wire
that he was "surprised by the proposal" by Rosenstein, McCabe said he had spoken with "lawyers at the FBI headquarters for that. We all agreed that this is a terrible idea, and that's not something we would pursue. "
Rosenstein denied proposing to wear a wire before William Bar took the oath as Chief Prosecutor last week, questions arose about how long will remain at the Ministry of Justice and is expected to remain in the transition period and a specific timetable for his departure is not defined, according to Phil Ewing of the NPR
As for McKeeb, last year the Grand Jury was commissioned to consider his case after the Inspector of Mines the General of the Justice has identified that he has misled the investigators for contacts with a Wall Street Journal reporter as reported by Cary Johnson of the NPR It remains unclear whether he will face criminal charges
Referring to the Investigator General's investigation , McCabe said, "I do not believe they were independent or honest in the process of this investigation or its outcome."
Trump said in Twitter that "McCabe's story is still on -upset". But he seems to have believed McCabe's description of Rosenstein proposing to personally carry a wire, saying that the two men "look as if they were planning a lot of illegal action."
