Graham: AG ‘Bill Barr is pretty upset’ over Spygate and ‘the way it was all handled’ (Video)

By Jon Dougherty

Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham promised on Sunday to haul before his panel every current and former Justice Department and FBI official who signed off on a series of Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) warrants authorizing the Obama regime to spy on the onetime Trump campaign adviser Carter Page.

Joining Fox Business‘ “Morning Futures” program on Sunday, the South Carolina Republican told host Maria Bartiromo that his panel will be busy in the coming weeks and months investigating former administration officials who were a party to the “Spygate” coup attempt against POTUS Donald Trump.

Former FBI Director James Comey, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, former Deputy Director of the FBI Andrew McCabe, and former Attorney General Sally Yates were all required to sign off on the FISA warrant applications before they were reviewed and ultimately approved.

Specifically, Graham wants to know how it was that the DoJ and FBI used an unsubstantiated political research document — the infamous “Steele Dossier” — to justify issuing FISA warrants, which are supposed to be used against foreign espionage targets, not American citizens.

Graham, who flew to Mar-a-Lago to play golf with the president at his club last week, also noted that Attorney General William Barr isn’t happy about the way in which Spygate played out and how it was allowed to play out at the FBI and Justice Department.

“I know Bill Barr and he’s pretty upset about how all of this was handled… I hope there is a special counsel appointed to look at DOJ corruption and political bias,” he told Bartiromo.

“I think it’s important to understand that political bias probably drove the Clinton outcome and not the facts… I just want the American people to know that the standards used against Clinton is an outlier. It’s not the way business is done,” he continued.

“And why did they choose that path? I think they had a political bias. They wanted Clinton to win, Trump to lose… Well May 1st, Barr is going to bring the Mueller Report over… I’m going to turn looking toward the counter-intelligence investigation. How the Clinton email investigation was handled and FISA abuse,” Graham pledged.

Watch:

Let’s also remember that Barr was critical of the Mueller probe from the outset — as the Left-wing media rushed to remind us after he was nominated by the president to become the next attorney general.

Why? Because Barr knew then what Graham and most other rational people in D.C. (all of whom aren’t Democrats) have always understood: Obama politicized everything he touched, including the Justice Department, in his quest to undermine POTUS and ensure that the most criminally investigated presidential nominee ever, Hillary Clinton, was ordained as his replacement.

And Barr seems to us to be far more interested in the legal process, not politics, which will require that he clean up Obama’s mess and get the DoJ and FBI back on solid footing, else half of America will never trust either agency again. We’re guessing that’s why Graham and a few other close POTUS advisers convinced the president to nominate him (notice the nod didn’t go to Rosenstein, who is actually on his way out of the Justice Department).

There are going to be lots of people who aren’t impressed by Graham’s pledge to get Spygate conspirators before his committee, and that’s a fair criticism.

But this is how the game is played in D.C. And certainly, AG Barr will benefit from whatever additional information Graham can glean from the witnesses.

Let the counterattack commence.

7 Comments on Graham: AG ‘Bill Barr is pretty upset’ over Spygate and ‘the way it was all handled’ (Video)

  1. A lot of us are upset over the $35,000,000 fiasco known as Spygate. We want our wasted tax dollars back. We want the pro-Hillary Mueller team of ‘investigators’ investigated. We want justice. Trump deserves an apology. Godspeed to Senator Graham and AG Barr. They will have to wade into a very deep, foul, snake-infested swamp to clean it out, so may God and all his guardian angels protect them. Danger lurks in the Deep State’s swamp, and we have a long list of accidented and suicided victims to prove it. MAGA!

    • If Graham’s buddy McCain was still alive which side of the fence would ‘ol Lindsey be on ? Keep an eye on him. He used to be a RINO. I hope he is truly on our side.
      Ever notice how a local team wins the championship and everybody jumps on the bandwagon ? Fair weather fans. Smells like Graham could be one of them. Hope not. MAGA

        Even a cross between a Chameleon & a Snake has its good uses.

        I agree: keep a diligent eye on him, because his disingenuity is probably 13, on a scale of 1 - 10 — but let him do our bidding now, if it ultimately serves to advance the ball toward the Goal Line ( actually, to start the ball rolling / moving at all ! )

        & then, when he finally does betray us, at least we’ll, by then, be that much further along the path; & by then, perhaps there will be others, as powerfully-situated as he is, who will take over the reins which he drops

      • There is speculation by some that McCain and/or his Deep State controllers used some kind of threat to keep Senator Graham in line and spewing their leftist dogma, voting their way on issues. After McCain conveniently died, Graham was supposedly released from whatever hold the black hats had on him. That’s just speculation and will probably never be verified or confirmed. We’ll see how it goes with Senator Graham. Keep hope alive.

        Never trust the backstabber Graham. His record is awful. He always pretends to be reasonable the 2 years before his election, then he reverts to his RINO ways.

    Certainly feels good — for a change.

    I see the loudmouth opportunist adolescent Graham is doing lots of talking about being tough in committee. He has done no “hauling”. A matter of a group of criminals plotting a coup is urgent enough for immediate action and less boasting. Graham was a supporter of the witch hunt until it became convenient for him to support Trump for election purposes. He read the polls to find out that Trump is much more popular among republican voters than he is.
