Republicans in the Senate are pledging to force James Clapper and James Comey to appear before Congress to find out who committed perjury regarding a briefing with President Barack Obama about a call between Gen. Michael Flynn and a Russian ambassador, The New York Post reported.

"You don't have to be a senior at city college to realize one of them is lying," Sen. John Kennedy, R-La., told the New York Post. "I think we ought to call them both back in and ask them: Which one of you guys is lying to Congress?"

"If you or I lie to Congress, it's supposed to be a felony," Kennedy said.

Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman, said he is planning to hold hearings about a Jan. 5, 2017, meeting at the White House where Obama shocked then-Deputy Attorney General Sally Yates, who was in charge at the Justice Department. He told her about two December 2016 calls between Flynn, who helped to transition President Donald Trump into his role, and Sergey Kislyak, who was Russian ambassador at the time.

"We'll have hearings about the Jan. 5 meeting," Graham told the Post.

He added Comey and Clapper would "definitely" be invited.

"It is important for John Durham's team to get to the bottom of this discrepancy between Clapper and Comey's accounts to Congress," Rep. Lee Zeldin, R-N.Y., said. "One of them wasn't telling the truth and, last I checked, lying to Congress was a federal crime."
