Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham (R-SC) said Wednesday that he wasn’t planning on calling special counsel Robert Mueller to testify before the committee.

“Enough already, it’s over,” Graham told reporters asking about a potential Mueller hearing¬†following Attorney General Bill Barr’s testimony before the committee.

Democrats have sought Mueller for hearings both because of his own probe into Russian election meddling and related matters, and because of Mueller’s letter¬†in late March, first reported Tuesday, that protested Barr’s handling of the rollout of the probe’s final report.

Graham did say during Wednesday’s hearing, and afterward, that Mueller could be asked to testify if he disputed Barr’s characterizations of conversations he had with the special counsel.

Graham also said he wouldn’t call former White House counsel Don McGahn to testify, though McGahn was a key witness in Mueller’s probe.

“I’m not going to retry the case, I’m not calling McGahn, it is over,” he said.
