Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., slammed Democrats' response to special counsel Robert Mueller Russia report findings as an "Oliver Stone approach" in a new interview.
Graham, the chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, was on Fox News on Thursday afternoon to discuss Mueller's findings — which were summarized in a brief memo released by Attorney General William Barr last weekend.
"Do you really believe that Bill Barr would give us a summary of the key findings and it not be supported by the report? Give me a break," Graham said. "I mean, this whole Oliver Stone approach to the Mueller report by Democrats is getting a bit old."
Some Democrats, in particular House Intelligence Committee chairman Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Calif., said this week they still believe there is evidence President Donald Trump conspired with the Russians to win the 2016 election — despite Mueller concluding Trump did not collude.
Graham called Schiff "the Jim Garrison figure, trying to look for somebody who actually shot President Kennedy. This is getting to be a bit ridiculous. He told us time and time again he knows there's collusion, he's seen evidence of it. Well, Mr. Mueller undercut that narrative.
"So, Adam Schiff's got to make a decision about his political future. Does he want to be the guy that won't let it go when the authority of the investigation, Mr. Mueller, has concluded there was no collusion?"
