Lindsey Graham has had enough of this nonsense. The daily attacks against Trump by the media, the out of control Mueller investigation that has yet to produce evidence of collusion.
But what is really getting to Lindsey is that the deep state’s actions surrounding the whole Russia fiasco.
Graham is demanding a new special counsel to get to the bottom of this and America deserves to know the truth.
As reported by The Hill: Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) said Thursday that he would renew a call for an independent counsel to investigate Republican allegations of bias at the Department of Justice (DOJ) and FBI.
Graham claimed in an interview with conservative radio host Laura Ingraham that a text message exchange between two former FBI officials focused on by House Republicans “is just one of a series of events that scream for a special counsel.”
The South Carolina senator, who has been an ally of President Trump, said he intends to send a letter to Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein asking that the Justice Department appoint an independent counsel to investigate alleged bias at the DOJ and the FBI.
The allegations center on communications between former FBI agent Peter Strzok and former FBI lawyer Lisa Page uncovered by a recent Justice Department inspector general investigation. Republicans say that the messages, which were critical of Trump, are evidence of systemic bias at the bureau during the concurrent investigations into Hillary Clinton’s emails and Russian interference in the 2016 election.
“What I can’t get over is how much more has to be uncovered at the Department of Justice regarding a political agenda,” Graham said Thursday on the “The Laura Ingraham Show.”
“The Department of Justice and the FBI were political operatives when it came to Trump, they weren’t investigators. This screams for a special counsel.”
The DOJ declined to comment on Graham’s remarks.
