(CNSNews.com) – Senate Judiciary Chairman Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) on Sunday promised to find out “who’s telling the truth, what actually happened,” in the days after President Donald Trump fired FBI Director James Comey.

Graham said he will subpoena former Acting Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe and current Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein to appear before his committee, “if that’s what it takes.”

Graham told CBS’s “Face the Nation” that “everybody in the country needs to know” if Rosenstein suggested wearing a wire into the White House to secretly record the president; and whether Rosenstein suggested invoking the 25th Amendment to remove the president from office.

Both allegations surfaced in a CBS “60 Minutes” interview with McCabe (details below).

Graham on Sunday promised to “get to the bottom of it.”

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.

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 has vehemently denied it, but we’re going to get to the bottom of it. 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.

Mr. Mueller is going to look at the Trump campaign, as he should, to see if they violated any laws during the 2016 election. And I’m going to do everything I can to get to the bottom of the Department of Justice/FBI behavior toward President Trump and his campaign.

Graham said no organization, including the FBI, is “beyond scrutiny.”

“If it happened, we need to clean it up,” Graham said. “And the FBI will come out stronger. But we’ve got to get to the bottom of it. What are people to think after they watch ’60 Minutes’ when they hear this accusation by the acting deputy — acting FBI director that the deputy attorney general encouraged him to try to find ways to count votes to replace the president?
