Senator Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) recently doubled down on his intent to investigate the origins of the so-called Russia hoax. While talking to reporters on Capitol Hill Thursday, Graham said Robert Mueller was only a “figurehead” of the Russia probe. The senator believes the investigation by the former special counsel involved deeper motives, and more people than previously thought.

Mueller testified in Congress Wednesday, generally confirming the findings of his lengthy probe. Senator Graham said Democrats must finally move on from the Mueller report because there is nothing there.

“I’m gonna look at how the whole investigation started, why it went so long, assured Graham. “As to Mr. Mueller, he served his country long, well, wounded in combat in Vietnam, became FBI director after 9/11 — I don’t want this to define his career.”

The South Carolina Republican stressed the Russia probe was “a mess,” and said lawmakers should focus on ensuring the integrity of U.S. elections going forward.
