overreach. you don't think this was done by a judge for a political reasons, do you? no. this ruling makes us look weak. we're going to fight this terrible ruling. we're going to take our case as far as it needs to go including all the way up to the supreme court. this is a watered down version, and let me tell you something. i think we ought to go back to the first one and go all the way which is what i wanted to do in the first place. >> and the department of justice is saying it will appeal the ruling calling it, quote, flawed and releasing this statement. in response, quote, the president's executive order falls squarely within his lawful authority in seeking to protect our nation's security. and the department will continue to defend this executive order in the courts. >> this morning still no evidence a day after the senate held its hearing into russia's interference in the u.s. election. republican senator lindsey graham at the hill many, he demanded answers from the administration and the fbi.

claim so he wants congress to keep investigating. so, what's the president basing his accusation on? it's still not clear, but his attorney general says it didn't come from him. >> did you ever give him any reason to believe he was wiretapped by the previous administration? >> look, the answer is no. >> reporter: now time is running out for the fbi director to either back up his boss or admit the president's wrong. with some lawmakers out of patience, warning the administration is out of time. >> we'll issue a subpoena to get the information. we'll hold up the deputy attorney general's nomination until congress is provided with the information that finally clears the air. >> reporter: senator lindsey graham also wants james comey to confirm publicly the fbi is looking into whether russia got involved in the 2016 election, announcing comey promised answers but didn't say when. comey himself is in the hot seat monday as at least four congressional committees are now investigating any interference from the kremlin. >> thank you, halle jackson for
