Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., slammed former FBI Director James Comey as “arrogant” in the wake of the release of a report by the Justice Department’s inspector general — and called on former Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein to testify on the matter before his panel.

“James Comey has done more damage to the FBI than anybody since J. Edgar Hoover,” Graham said Wednesday on “Hannity,” “and [Andrew] McCabe is in that category.”

Hoover — who served as the inaugural FBI director from President Calvin Coolidge’s administration through the early part of Richard Nixon’s — was accused of greatly abusing his power, creating enemies lists and harassing political dissenters. At the same time, Hoover was praised for expanding the crime-fighting concept of the FBI from the limits originally intended in 1924.

“Mr. Rosenstein, get ready to testify,” Graham later added. After then-Attorney General Jeff Sessions’ recusal, Rosenstein took over the supervision of Robert Mueller’s special counsel probe of possible links between the Trump campaign and Russia.
