Fireworks erupted on Capitol Hill Wednesday when Sen. Lindsey Graham abruptly shut-down Sen. Mazie Hirono’s line-of-questioning; saying she was only interested in “slandering” Attorney General William Barr.

“Please give us some credit for knowing what the hell is going on around here,” said Hirono.
“Not really,” interrupted Graham. “Listen, you’ve slandered this man. All I can say is you slandered this man from top to bottom. If you want more of this, you’re not going to get it. If you’re going to ask him questions you can.”
