One would certainly hope so, after Michael Horowitz’ devastating Inspector General report. Yesterday on CBS’ Face the Nation, Margaret Brennan asked Senate Judiciary Chair Lindsey Graham to decode a Donald Trump tweet urging Graham to “start up Judiciary” to “clean up D.C. now, last chance!” Graham chuckled and answered, “I think what he’s talking about is oversight of the FISA warrant system that failed,” and on that subject Graham promised Trump some good news, but not perhaps precisely what Trump is hoping to get:

MARGARET BRENNAN: The President’s up. He’s watching, apparently, because he sent out a tweet this morning about you appearing on this program.

SENATOR LINDSEY GRAHAM: I think what he’s talking about is oversight of the FISA warrant system that failed. I can promise the President and your viewers that I’m going to call witnesses about–
MARGARET BRENNAN: Foreign surveillance warrants–the Horowitz report.
SENATOR LINDSEY GRAHAM: Yeah. The Horowitz report. You know, McCabe, Comey, Rosenstein, Yates. How did you miss it so badly? How could you issue four warrants against an American citizen based on information that was unreliable? But here’s what I want to tell the President. I’m not going to be the Republican Christopher Steele.
