Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Sen. Lindsey Graham is prepared to investigate if a coup was attempted against President Donald Trump.

Graham spoke to Margaret Brennan on “Face The Nation” Sunday on CBS when he revealed his plans.

Brennan played video of former acting FBI Director Andrew McCabe in which he said former Deputy Attorney general Rod Rosenstein considered using the 25th Amendment to remove President Trump.

“While he’s publicly denied it, but, the whole point of Congress existing is to provide oversight of the executive branch,” Graham said.

“So through good reporting by “60 Minutes,” there’s an allegation by the acting FBI director at the time that the deputy attorney general was basically trying to do an administrative coup, take the president down to the twenty fifth amendment process,” he said.

“The deputy attorney general denies it. So I promise your viewers the following; that we will have a hearing about who’s telling the truth, what actually happened. Mr. McCabe, you remember, was dismissed from the FBI for leaking information to the press. So you’ve got to remember the source here,” Graham said.

“There has been some parsing though of whether these were extended discussions versus conversations about the 25th Amendment. Do you know whether those conversations have taken place?” Brennan asked.

“No but I think everybody in the country needs to know if it happened. It’s stunning to me that one of the chief law enforcement officers of the land- the acting head of the FBI- would go on national television and say, oh by the way I remember a conversation with the deputy attorney general about trying to find if we could replace the president under the 25th Amendment,” Graham said.

“We’re a democracy. People enforce the law- can’t take it into their own hands. And was this an attempted bureaucratic coup? I don’t know. I don’t know who’s telling the truth. I know Rosenstein vehemently denied it but we’re going to get to the bottom of it,” the senator said.

“I do know there was a lot of monkey business about FISA warrants being issued against Carter Page, about dossiers coming from Russia that were unverified,” he said.
