Lindsey Graham Calls For Investigation Into FBI's Handling Of Hillary Clinton
Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman says bureau treated Clinton leniently
Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham called for an investigation into the FBI and Justice Department handling Hillary Clinton claiming they treated her more leniently than they did President Donald Trump in the 2016 election.
Graham said he would introduce legislation to secure that investigation.
“We let [Robert] Mueller look at all things Trump-related, to collusion and otherwise. Somebody needs to look at what happened on the other side, and find out whether the FBI and the DOJ had two systems — one supporting the person they wanted to win, and one out to get the person they wanted to lose,” he said.
His comments came on the Senate floor.
“There’s more than smoking guns here. There’s overwhelming evidence that somebody outside the political system should look into,” he said.
Graham's comments came just hours after release by Rep. Doug Collins began unveiling transcripts of interviews from people involved in the anti-Trump FBI probes.
It's not just Graham who wants a full probe into the FBI
There were more calls for a full investigation into "obstruction of justice" after revelations that former Presdient Barack Obama's Justice Department prevented the FBI from investigating Hillary Clinton in 2016.
Former NYPD Commissioner Benard Kerik said that US citizens would “never have faith” in the US Government until the FBI’s handling of the Hillary Clinton email probe is investigated.
The calls have followed the bombshell revelations from former FBI legal counsel Lisa Page this week.

On Tuesday, Rep. John Ratcliffe (R-TX) provided a transcript from Page's July 2018 testimony before Congress in which she stated under oath that the Department of Justice ordered the FBI, under then-Director James Comey, not to charge Clinton with “gross negligence” for mishandling classified information.
Yesterday we reported that Disgraced former FBI lawyer Lisa Page testified that the FBI considered Espionage Act charges against Hillary Clinton, indicating “gross negligence," but was shut down by the Justice Department.
Page’s secret testimony transcripts in front of the House Judiciary and Oversight committees shows new perspectives on the investigation into Clinton's emails.
The transcripts revert to the FBI’s "Midyear Exam" investigation, which examined whether Clinton broke the law when she sent and received classified information on her unauthorized private email server.
