Lindsey Graham says he won't call Mueller in front of Senate panel: 'It's over'

Senate Judiciary Committee Chair Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) told reporters on Wednesday he will not be calling on Special Counsel Robert Mueller to testify before his committee.

"I'm not going to do any more," he said. "Enough already. It's over." Earlier in the day, his committee questioned Attorney General William Barr about Mueller's report. In April, Barr said he wasn't aware of any concerns Mueller might have had about the way he was handling the report, but on Wednesday, a letter Mueller sent to the Department of Justice in March was made public, showing that he was concerned about Barr's summary of the document, saying it "did not fully capture the context, nature, and substance" of his work.

Graham might not want Mueller to appear before his committee, but his colleague Sen. John Kennedy (R-La.) said he sees "no problem" with Mueller testifying, and would like to know why he's "unhappy" with Barr.
