At a news conference yesterday, Republican Senator Lindsey Graham promised that his committee will investigate the “shady behavior” and possibly illegal abuses of power carried out by the Obama administration to help the Clinton campaign.
Now that Robert Mueller’s report shows that the president did not conspire with Russia, despite two years of lies by the mainstream media and democrats, Graham intends to get to the bottom of the real motivation behind the attempted set up.
“When it comes to the [Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act] warrant, the Clinton campaign, the counterintelligence investigation, it’s pretty much been swept under the rug except by a few Republicans in the House. Those days are over. Going forward, hopefully in a bipartisan fashion, we’ll begin to unpack the other side of the story,” Graham said at a news conference.
Graham wants to know the other side of the story.
Graham said, “The FISA warrant issued against Carter Page was based on a dossier prepared by Christopher Steele is at a minimum disturbing. Whether or not it is illegal, I don’t know. So I’m going to get answers to this. No one seems to care it seems to be only Republicans that do and that’s sad.”
“If the shoe were on the other foot it would be front page news—the double standard has been striking and frankly disappointing,” Graham said.
The senator has called for an independent special counsel to be established for the investigation, and he will personally investigate “whether or not a counterintelligence investigation was opened up regarding the Trump campaign as a backdoor to spy on the campaign.”
He also explained that he will look at Fusion GPS’ role in the 2016 presidential election, potential FISA abuse, and more.
“I will be doing oversight to try to put this puzzle together,” Graham said.
“To those who were abusive of the process in 2016 on the other side, you haven’t had much scrutiny, but that’s coming,” Graham added.
Graham also questioned the FBI’s actions during its investigation into Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server while she served as secretary of state.
He said that there could be more about Loretta Lynch’s behavior than just a secret tarmac meeting with Bill Clinton where they talked about ‘grandchildren.’
“What was the conflict that made Loretta lynch so unable to preside over the Clinton email investigation? Was it just a tarmac meeting or was it more? I believe there was more there. And I intend to get to there,” he said.
Graham stated that he hoped Barr will appoint a special counsel to investigate these claims.
“What I hope Mr. Barr will do is what I hope for the country’s sake, appoint somebody outside of the current system into these allegations somebody we all trust, and let them do what Mr. Mueller did,” Graham concluded.
Although many people suspect that this new Lindsey Graham is simply trying to cover his previous support of the democrat agenda, they also argue that if he helps bring down the deep state, much of his prior behavior will be atoned.
