Sen. Graham Rips Sen. Hirono: You Slandered This Man, So If You Want More of This, You’re Not Going to Get It

‘If you want to ask him questions, you can’

EXCERPT:

HIRONO: "You’re telling me that it is okay. Let me ask you the last question that I have in 17 seconds. Do you think it's okay for a president to offer pardons to people who don’t testify against him, to threaten the family of someone who does? Is that okay?"
BARR: "When did he offer a pardon to someone —"
HIRONO: "I think you know what I’m talking about. Please, please, Mr. Attorney General, you know, give us some credit for knowing what the hell is going on around here with you."
GRAHAM: "Not really. To this line of questioning. Listen, you’ve slandered this man."
BARR: "What I sort of want to know, how did we get to this point?"
HIRONO: "I do not think that I’m slandering anyone."
GRAHAM: "All I can say —"
HIRONO: "Mr. Chairman, I am done, thank you very much."
GRAHAM: "And you slandered this man, from top to bottom, so if you want more of this, you’re not going to get it. If you want to ask him questions, you can."
HIRONO: "You certainly have your opinion and I have mine."
