Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) is the chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, but on Monday was caught out-of-the-loop on the resignation of Attorney General Bill Barr.

Graham, who is a major Trump supporter, on Monday evening took to lobbying the president through Fox News instead of calling him on the phone.

The South Carolina Republican urged Trump to back his legislation to remove protections for technology companies. Trump had attempted to insert the legislation as an amendment to the Pentagon spending bill, vowing he would veto it otherwise. But the amendment was not added and the legislation passed the Senate with a veto-proof majority.
