Senator Lindsey Graham (R., S.C.) challenged former senator Chuck Hagel (R., Neb.) over his controversial remarks about the pro-Israel lobby.
Graham asked Hagel to name one person who had been intimidated by the pro-Israel lobby, but the former Senator could not. “I don’t know,” he said. Graham then asked the prospective defense secretary to name a “dumb thing” the federal government has done as a result of such intimidation or influence. Hagel said he could not think of an example.
