Is the investigation into Benghazi over?

Not by a long shot, says Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC).

When he was asked on Sunday morning about the Friday report from the Republican-controlled House Intelligence Committee that cleared Obama administration appointees of wrongdoing regarding the 2012 attack on the U.S. diplomatic mission in Benghazi, Libya, Graham didn't mince his words.

"I think the report's full of crap," he told CNN guest host Gloria Borger.

He said he was looking forward to hearing more from Representative Trey Gowdy's (R-SC) Select Committee on Benghazi, and while he wasn't accusing the House Intelligence Committee of lying, he didn't trust the report:

I’m saying the House Intelligence Committee is doing a lousy job policing their own. I’m saying that anybody who has followed Benghazi at all knows that the CIA deputy director did not come forward to tell Congress what role he played in changing the talking points. And the only way we knew he was involved is when he told a representative at the White House, I’m going to do a hard review of this, a hard rewrite.

Watch Graham go into detail in the clip below:
