WATCH: Sen. Lindsey Graham- DOJ wanted Hillary Clinton to win presidency
Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) dropped some pretty tantalizing information during an interview on Fox Business with Maria Bartiromo on her show, “Sunday Morning Futures.”
From Daily Caller:
Graham says he is well acquainted with the attorney general and his opinion on the Clinton email investigation.
“I know Bill Barr pretty well, and he’s pretty upset about the way all this was handled,” he said, although the senator added that he could not speak for Barr.
“I don’t know if he’s going to have a special prosecutor to look at the probability of criminal misbehavior,” Graham said. “I’m going to look at what happened from an oversight role. But I hope there’s a special counsel appointed to look at DOJ corruption and political bias, you know? Because Mueller did his job against Trump.”
Graham said that it’s time for an investigation to turn its eyes on what Clinton and the Democrats did. “Nobody’s really looked at the Clinton campaign, the FISA warrant abuse or the counterintelligence investigation for criminality yet and somebody should,” said Graham.

Graham outlined what he would be looking at in his oversight role and what he hope that a special counsel would look at.
From Daily Wire:
“I’m not so much worried about retrying her, but I want to make sure that the public understands that she got away with something they wouldn’t get away with. I think it’s important to understand that political bias probably drove the Clinton outcome, not the facts,” Graham continued. “I really don’t believe that Comey just took over the investigation from Lynch based on a tarmac meeting. I just want the American public to know that the standard used against Clinton is an outlier. It’s not the way business is done. And why did they choose that path? I think they had a political bias. They wanted Clinton to win, Trump to lose. And here’s the point. How could she win if the Department of Justice indicted her? I think that’s what drove the decision not to indict. They wanted her to win.”
Graham said it’s his job to make sure that all the questionable actions don’t happen again.
“Do we need to rewrite the FISA laws to make sure this never happens again?” Graham added. “Do we need to have congressional rules about counterintelligence investigations or presidential campaigns? But somebody needs to look at the behavior and see if they violated the law [in the manner that] Mueller looked at the Trump campaign extensively. Nobody’s taking a look at the other side and I hope Bill Barr will either appoint a special counsel to do that or do it himself because it’s important that both campaigns be looked at, not just one.” [….]
“There’s three things I’m going to look at, as Judiciary chairman. The Clinton e-mail investigation: Why did Comey take over the investigation? I would like to talk to Lynch and Comey — I would like to find out whether or not they basically were in the tank for Clinton and gave her a pass,” Graham said. “When it comes to the counterintelligence investigation, I want to find out why they never went to Trump to tell him he may have a problem with people in his campaign working with the Russians. They told Feinstein she had somebody in her office working the Chinese. Why didn’t they do that with Trump? And the last thing is the FISA warrant. How could this document, the dossier, be used to get a warrant against an American citizen four times, and it’s still be unverified to this day?”
Good on Graham for continuing to push for the truth and for accountability.
When it involved President Donald Trump, you had an over two year investigation without any actual collusion.
Meanwhile on the Clinton side, you have a failure to address any of her clear actions, those of her staff or the involvement of Democrats in creating and spreading the fake dossier to the FBI and the media.
Time for real action.
