Republican Sens. John McCain and Lindsey Graham have joined the chorus expressing outrage at the bombshell confirmation that the CIA was snooping on the Senate. The two senators indicated they looked forward to having conversations with colleagues over the August recess about a variety of responses, including congressional inquiries or a special prosecutor.
"This is to me [of] the utmost seriousness. What did the director of the CIA know and when did he know it?" McCain said. Both senators blasted CIA Director John O. Brennan for having issued a public denial of the original allegations made by Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif. Other senators have begun to call for the resignation of Brennan, as New Mexico Democrat Martin Heinrich did just after noon Friday on MSNBC.
