Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said the Senate is planning to "get answers" to the alleged Obama administration abuses, which targeted President Donald Trump's campaign and transition team.

“The American people deserve answers about how such abuses could happen, and we intend to get those answers,” McConnell said.

McConnell's statement supported the notion that Trump and his administration were the victims of improper or even illegal surveillance.

The Kentucky Republican's statement also supported the view that Trump was unfairly treated by the outgoing Obama administration and others who were seeking to undermine him.

McConnell also blasted U.S. District Judge Emmet Sullivan for not allowing the Justice Department to drop its prosecution of Trump’s former national security adviser Michael Flynn.

“No matter what some Washington Democrats may try to claim, you’re not crazy or a conspiracy theorist if you see a pattern of institutional unfairness toward this president,” he said.

“You would have to be blind not to see one.”

McConnell indicated his support for upcoming hearings in the Senate Judiciary Committee, which will seek the testimony of key Obama administration officials.

The officials include former FBI director James Comey and former national security adviser Susan Rice.

On Monday, Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham (R-SC) announced that the Senate is moving forward by voting to authorize subpoenaing dozens of top officials over their "Crossfire Hurricane" investigation into the 2016 Trump campaign and other related matters.

Sen. Graham (R-SC) announced a press release, revealing that the subpoena authorization “covers a number of documents, communications, and testimony from witnesses, including James Comey, Andrew McCabe, James Clapper, John Brennan, Sally Yates, and others.”

Last week, President Trump told Graham to move forward with a congressional investigation into Obama's administration regarding the spiraling "Obamagate" scandal.

On Thursday, Trump blasted Obamagate as "the biggest political crime and scandal in the history of the USA."

“If I were a Senator or Congressman, the first person I would call to testify about the biggest political crime and scandal in the history of the USA, by FAR, is former President Obama,” Trump said on Twitter.
