House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., should apologize to Attorney General William Barr for calling him a liar, Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., said Thursday.

Following Pelosi's comments in regard to Barr's testimony in front of the Senate Judiciary Committee, Graham — who chairs the panel that questioned Barr about special counsel Robert Mueller's Russia report Wednesday — said she was wrong.

"I actually admire [Pelosi] as a person," Graham said. "I disagree with her publicly, but it's an offensive statement. I think she should apologize to the attorney general, or be specific as to how he lied."

USA Today posted a clip of Graham's comments.

"I think his testimony regarding his interaction with Mr. Mueller about the letter, I believe it," Graham added. "You can almost send a letter to Mr. Mueller, asking him if he takes issue with anything that Mr. [Barr] said about the phone call they had. So, I just think it's over the top. I think it says more about her than it does about Bill Barr. I don't believe he lied one bit."

Graham was also asked if he has spoken to the White House about Barr's hearing appearance.

"I just talked to the White House counsel, they were very pleased," Graham said.

"I think what Mr. Barr went through [Wednesday] was unseemly and unnecessary. He did not misrepresent one word of the report. The findings by Mr. Mueller are what Mr. Barr said they were, and if you don't believe me, read the report."
