[Ed. – It’s a start.  Graham has been slow-moving and unenthusiastic about this, or so it appears to me.  I get the sense he’s trying to retain control over what comes out in such a probe.  But I’d like to imagine the best about his intentions.  Everybody think your own thoughts.  We’ll see.]

Sen. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina told CBS News that he would seek private depositions and public testimony from former FBI Director James Comey, former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, former Deputy Attorney General Sally Yates, and former Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein.

The Republican committee leader also plans to call current FBI Director Christopher Wray, who took over the bureau after Comey was fired in 2017 and wasn’t involved in approving FISA applications on former Trump associate Page.

Graham told CBS’s Catherine Herridge he planned to deliver a witness list for the FISA hearings to the Justice Department shortly and indicated weeks of FISA witness hearings might begin as soon as late February or early March.
