One of several candidates President Donald Trump is considering to replace fired FBI Director James Comey sees no need for a special counsel to investigate possible collusion between the Trump campaign and Russian Federation.
Cornyn, the Senate majority whip, was interviewed along with FBI's Acting Director Andrew McCabe, New York associate judge Michael J. Garcia and Alice Fisher, who formerly served as assistant attorney general for the Justice Department's Criminal Division.
Cornyn is the second-ranking Senate Republican and has been more vocal in his support of Trump in recent weeks.
The petition accused Cornyn, the No. 2 Republican in the Senate, of supporting "discriminatory policies and politicians", and argued that hosting him as a commencement speaker would contradict the university's values. So unless the conference gives Cornyn a waiver to serve longer, the senior senator from Texas will go from the number two Republican in the Senate to just another senator, albeit one with seniority. During the campaign, Cornyn and McConnell, along with many other Republicans, questioned Trump's tone and suggested that his angry tweets may not always be productive.
"If this were any other circumstance, any other president, you might find Cornyn at the top of that list, and maybe not even a controversial listing", Rottinghaus says.
The latest example of his too-rare rationality was his objection to the suggestion that President Trump should appoint Graham's colleague Sen.
A statement released by university spokesman Kendrick Callis said commencement speaker Sen.

The search for former FBI Director James Comey's replacement is on.
U.S. correspondent Scott Malone said that President Trump is due to leave on Friday on his first global trip since being in office, and he may make his pick before he leaves.
"That's a ridiculous position", Cornyn said May 10, the day after Comey was sacked.
It's rumoured current acting Federal Bureau of Investigation director Andrew McCabe, or Republican Senator John Cornyn of Texas, could be in line for the position.
The protests - or the reactions to them - often make national headlines and are something officials have to take seriously. "That issue was settled many years ago when the Supreme Court ruled in 1974 that the tapes that President (Richard) Nixon had should be turned over to Congress". "I think the process is going to go quickly", he said, according to pool reports.
Trump also tweeted a warning to Comey on Friday, saying he "better hope that there are no "tapes" of our conversations before he starts leaking to the press".
