I'm not saying we shouldn't investigate, something happened that shouldn't have happened. This shouldn't be a political witch hunt at this point.
Well, I don't expect it not to be a witch-hunt with someone like Lindsey Graham at the helm.
There's always one of these scandals that the opposition exploits. I think there's a lot of bad eggs in govt, particularly at the top that don't get caught. There's a lot of corruption up there — no matter who is in power.
