Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., chairman of the Senate Judiciary Subcommittee on Crime and Terrorism, reacts to questions on the firing of FBI Director James Comey by President Trump on Capitol Hill.

Philip Bump, writer for The Washington Post's politics blog, The Fix, discusses the latest political news, including whether or not there are actual tapes from the Oval Office that could be subpoenaed, and how Republican Senators are publicly criticizing President Trump's policies while quietly voting with him in hopes of scoring points with "non-Republicans."

"Polling suggests, as long as there is political cover for Republicans to stand with Donald Trump, then they’re going to do so," said Bump.
