Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.), the chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, said the word “fucking” on national television while reading text messages between two members of the FBI during Attorney General William Barr‘s testimony on Wednesday.

Graham, during his opening remarks before Barr testified about the release of the highly anticipated report from Special Counsel Robert Mueller, read text messages from Peter Strzok and Lisa Page while discussing their anti-Trump sentiments.

The South Carolina lawmaker read a number of the texts between the FBI agents, eventually coming across one from October 19, 2016.

“Trump is a fucking idiot, he’s unable to provide a coherent answer,” Graham said, quoting the texts.

He added:

“Sorry to the kids out there.”

The f-bomb caught the attention of people watching the Barr testimony.

The Strzok and Page text messages have been the focus of Republican lawmakers for over a year, who believe they show a secret club within the FBI that worked against President Donald Trump.
