"He hasn't answered that letter. If he doesn't answer it today, I'm going to go to the chairman of the [Judiciary] Committee, Sen. [Chuck] Grassley [R-Iowa], and seek his support to subpoena," Graham said during a Fox News radio interview.

The Hill's Morning Report - Ins and outs: Powell renominated at Fed, Parnell drops Senate bid MORE (D-R.I.) sent a letter to Comey and Dana Boente, the acting deputy attorney general, last week asking for any warrant application or court documents tied to potential legal wiretapping of the Trump campaign, Trump or Trump Tower. 
 
Graham separately told reporters that he hadn't gotten any indication that he would hear back from the FBI by Wednesday. 
 
"The only thing he can be assured of is if they don't answer my letter, the committee as a whole, I think, will subpoena the documents and I will stay on them to disclose whether or not there's a criminal investigation," he added.

Graham and Whitehouse, who oversee a Judiciary subcommittee, are investigating Trump's claim, which he offered without evidence, that his predecessor wiretapped him. 
 
“Terrible! Just found out that Obama had my ‘wires tapped’ in Trump Tower just before the victory. Nothing found. This is McCarthyism!” Trump tweeted. 
 
Graham added on Wednesday that he has seen "no evidence of collusion," but his panel will continue digging into whether the Obama administration wiretapped the presidential campaign. 
 
"I'm going to find out if there was ever a warrant issued against the Trump campaign. Period," he told Fox News radio. 
 
Graham's comments come after he fired a warning shot to the FBI on Tuesday, telling reporters that the bureau was about to "screw up big time" if they didn't respond to his letter. 
 
"They're about to screw up big time if they keep running to the [Intelligence] Committee and not answer that letter," the South Carolina Republican told reporters. 
 
In addition to Graham's subcommittee, the Senate and House Intelligence Committees are probing Moscow's meddling in the White House race and any potential contacts between the Trump campaign and Russia.
