Lindsey Graham Says It's About To Get "Ugly and Damning" For The DOJ
In an interview with Maria Bartiromo, Senator Lindsey Graham said that he believes that the inspector general's report that is to be released relating to the FISA Abuse regarding Russian collusion and Donald Trump will be "ugly and damning" for the Department of Justice.
“I want it all out. I want people to see how off the rails this investigation got, and I want people to be held accountable.”
According to The Daily Caller,
Since March 2018, Justice Department inspector general Michael Horowitz has investigated whether the FBI and DOJ misled the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court in applications for wiretap warrants against former Trump campaign adviser Carter Page.
Horowitz told Congress June 25 he had completed the investigation and was in the process of writing a report of his findings. Some Republican lawmakers said the report is likely to come out shortly after Labor Day.
“I believe the Horowitz report is going to be ugly and damning regarding the Department of Justice handling of the Russia probe,” Graham said Sunday, adding he wants as much of the report as possible to be declassified.
“I want the American public to hear the story. I want all this information to come out. I want them to read for themselves how bad it was, the warrant application to the [Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act] Court I think was quite frankly a fraud on the court.”
Sen. Graham also goes on to say that he's very interested in what part the CIA played in all of this. In fact, he's wondering if the CIA isn't the organization at the very root of the entire Russia blame game.
“I really am very curious about the role the CIA played here. We know that the FISA warrant application was based on a dossier prepared by Christopher Steele who was biased against Trump that was unverified,” he said.
“But this whole intelligence operations — what role did the CIA play? Who knew about this in the White House?”
