Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Chairman Ron Johnson is leading his own investigation, and his committee voted Wednesday to authorize subpoenas for depositions to dozens of individuals, including Comey and McCabe.

Democrats on the Senate Judiciary Committee had said they wanted to hear from Mueller, arguing the committee has not heard testimony from the special counsel or his team since the Mueller report was released in 2019. After Mueller wrote an op-ed defending the prosecution of Roger Stone following President Donald Trump's commutation of Stone's sentence, Graham said he would call in Mueller to testify.
