Lindsey Graham Calls Out the FBI for Biased Clinton Investigation

The FBI applied a different standard of justice to Hillary Clinton in 2015 than it did for Donald Trump in 2016, Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., charged Sunday.

In an interview on Fox News’ “Sunday Morning Futures,” Graham said newly declassified documents unveil the disparity.


“In March of 2015 the FBI finds out about a plot by a foreign government to lobby the [Hillary Clinton] campaign and funnel millions of dollars into the Clinton campaign illegally,” he explained.

“They open up an investigation, they want a FISA warrant against a Clinton operative connected to the foreign government. What happens? The FBI’s [leadership] says ‘we’re not going to let you get a warrant until you brief the Clinton campaign’ and in October of 2015, FBI personnel met with the Clinton campaign to tell her about the problem so she could fix it and they never issued the FISA warrant.

“That was the right way to do business.”

But in 2016, it was a different story, Graham said.

“Four counter intelligence investigations opened by the FBI against the Trump campaign” in 2016, he said. “They never tell him about it so he can fix it… They never told Trump ‘oh, by the way, you’ve got a Carter Page problem, you’ve got a George Papadopoulos problem.’ As a matter of fact not only did they not tell Trump, they used a generic briefing to spy on Trump.”

Graham acknowledged foreign governments are going to try to influence U.S. elections “for the rest of our lives.”

“We need to have tools to find out about that and when you find out about a foreign government trying to influence a campaign, you need to protect the campaign, not spy on it.”

“They did it right for Clinton, they used the counter intelligence investigation to spy on Trump. That is a double standard. That is political bias…. I cannot tell you how inappropriate it is to do what they did to Trump. They never told him about the problem, they used the problem as a way to spy on him.”

    when an education system indoctronates students to hate America, are we surprised when they graduate and take a job in government they will do their best to bring down our Country. It will be a good day when we can bring charges against them in the form of treasonable actions and put them in prison.

    The Clintons’ are crooked and EVERYONE knows it. But the republicants can’t/will not do anything about it. They’re spinless to the core, trump even said it. “The Democrats play a more vicious” until the republicants grow a spine, they will keep getting stomped on. TRUMP is the only one that counter punches and hits back. The rest are all elementary school boys.
