Sen. Graham (R-SC) Presses IG Horowitz Over Text Message Between FBI Lawyer Lisa Page & FBI Agent Peter Strzok (VIDEO)
SENATOR GRAHAM PRESSES IG HOROWITZ …
Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) pressed Inspector General Michael Horowitz during yesterday’s Senate Judiciary Committee about August 2016 text message exchanges between FBI lawyer Lisa Page and FBI agent Peter Strzok asking if they showed bias against then-candidate Donald Trump. Graham pointed out the many cases of bias that Horowitz was concerned about, but yet some how all of thee very concerning, problematic and bias actions by the FBI never became, “enough already.”
Sen. Graham pointed out the obvious, Page, Strzok, and other unnamed FBI individuals hated Trump and stated that they would do things to stop him. But for some unknown reason, that was not considered actions of political bias. Graham points out that you could not find Hillary Clinton guilty of a crime and “STOP HIM, meaning Donald Trump. One wonders if Hillary Clinton had to win the election for this to be true? And if that happened, God help us all.
In the end, Sen. Graham says that he is not buying that there was not bias.
Sen. Graham went on FOX News with Shannon Bream to discuss is impressions of his questioning of Inspector General Michael Horowitz. Graham just is not buying that there was no political bias in the FBI’s handling of the Hillary Clinton server issue when there is nothing but examples of bias in the IG report. As Graham states, the #2 guy at the FBI, now fired Andrew McCabe, had a meeting with Lisa Pagea and FBI Agent Peter Strzok to develop an insurance policy if candidate Donald Trump was elected, then that is abuse at the highest level and needs to be dealt with. This time I find myself agreeing with Sen. Graham 100%. As Graham ended with, what the FBI and DOJ did should scare everyone and is dangerous to our Democracy.
“If the #2 guy in the FBI had a meeting with Page and Strzok in his office to find out how to create an ‘insurance policy’ against Trump being elected, that is abuse of the highest level of the government,” Graham continued. “That is Watergate stuff. That’s what the FBI used to do years ago and I want to get to the bottom of it.”
However, this was the senator’s biggest takeaway.
“I learned today is that what the FBI and Department of Justice did in the Clinton email investigation is dangerous to democracy,” Graham stated. “She got away with it and they were out to get Trump and it could be somebody new next time, so we need to fix this.”
