Senator Graham plans to get former high-ranking FBI officials in front of the Senate.
Former Deputy US Attorney General Rod Rosenstein admitted he would not have signed FISA warrants if he knew then what he knows now.
President Donald Trump has long believed his predecessor spied on his campaign.
Michael Flynn is currently fighting for his life back after documents show he was targeted.
(NewsReady.com) – Earlier this year, Americans started receiving DOJ documents regarding the Michael Flynn and Russia investigation. The paperwork was shocking. Republicans had long suspected the FBI was unfairly targeting President Donald Trump’s campaign during the 2016 campaign, but they’d never had anything concrete.
The documents showed that former National Security Advisor Flynn was the victim of a targeted attack by former President Obama officials. As a result, Republicans in the Senate are investigating the former administration’s actions.
A Senator on a Mission
Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) is one of the most determined lawmakers and he isn’t going to let low-level FBI officials take the fall. Earlier this week, the lawmaker said he’s going to call former FBI Director James Comey and his former deputy director, Andrew McCabe, to testify in front of the Senate Judiciary Committee.
On June 7, Graham told Fox News’ “Sunday Morning Futures” he doesn’t think the high-ranking officials were unaware that ex-British spy Christopher Steele’s dossier had been proven false. The senator believes they knew and used it anyway to get a FISA warrant to surveil former Trump campaign official Carter Page.
Graham went on to say he isn’t going to allow “some low-level” employee blamed for “defrauding the court.”
Former Deputy AG Rod Rosenstein recently admitted he should not have signed to renew the surveillance warrant against Page. Not only that, but he said he didn’t fully read the documents he was supposed to read. Who knew high-ranking DOJ officials could just skim extremely important documents.
How these people were allowed to investigate the president of the United States is unbelievable. Senator Graham seems determined to get to the bottom of it, though.
