Senator Lindsey Graham defended President Donald Trump’s ouster of two witnesses from his administration whom he blames for his impeachment, and suggested he would like to see one of the men questioned further.

Graham, a South Carolina Republican and top Trump ally, said Sunday on CBS’s “Face the Nation” that the removal of Army Lieutenant Colonel Alexander Vindman from the White House’s National Security Council “was justified.”
