Former senator Chuck Hagel will face tough questions on Israel and its enemies if nominated for defense secretary, said Sen. Lindsey Graham, a member of the House Armed Services Committee on Sunday.
"He is an antagonistic figure toward the State of Israel," Graham, a South Carolina Republican, told Candy Crowley on CNN's State of the Union.
Citing some of Hagel's expressed opinions on Israel, Iran and Afghanistan, Graham declined to say whether he would be willing to join a fillibuster to block the expected nomination.
