As the dust begins to settle on special counsel's Russia probe, and Donald Trump's critics face the reality that Mueller's report exonerates the president of Russian collusion claims, Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) has hinted where the saga may be heading next as the script flips back on to the Democrats.

Disgraced former FBI Director James Comey joined the flood of responses to Robert Mueller's final report on his investigation into the Trump campaign by tweeting a cryptic photo.

On Sunday, Comey posted a picture, on Twitter, of himself standing in the forest with a caption that simply stated: "So many questions." 

Republican Sen. Graham, the chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, replied to Comey's tweet with a devastating two-line response, saying: "Could not agree more. See you soon."

Comey posted the tweet after the attorney general sent a letter to Congress sharing the findings of Mueller's investigation.

After reviewing the report, AG William Barr told Congress that Mueller did not find evidence that that the Trump campaign conspired or coordinated with Russia to interfere in the 2016 presidential election.

According to the Daily Mail, Senator Graham on Sunday celebrated the news that Mueller did not conclude that Trump or his associates conspired with Russia to influence the election.

Graham, a close ally of Trump, in released a statement saying this is a "great day for President Trump and his team," adding that the report shows there was "no collusion and no obstruction."

Graham also said that "the cloud hanging over President Trump has been removed by this report."

Graham's "see you soon" message appeared to be a warning that he hopes to question the former FBI head.

According to Fox News, Comey's tweet followed Attorney General William Barr’s announcement that Mueller did not find evidence that Trump’s campaign “conspired or coordinated” with Russia to influence the 2016 presidential election but reached no conclusion on whether Trump obstructed justice.

Trump and his team celebrated the outcome but also laid bare his resentment after two years of investigations that have shadowed his administration.

“It’s a shame that our country has had to go through this. To be honest, it’s a shame that your president has had to go through this,” President Trump said.

The Hill reached out to Graham for clarification about his tweet and his office referred the website to a letter from Graham to the attorney general about investigating a FISA surveillance warrant against Carter Page, a former campaign adviser to then-candidate Trump.

The surveillance of Page became a contentious matter between Republicans and Democrats.

Republicans say the FBI had abused its surveillance powers and improperly obtained the warrant, a charge that Democrats rebutted as both sides characterized the documents in different ways.

Critics have charged that Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, who signed off on the FISA application renewals, should not have approved them without more reliable intelligence.

Trump has claimed that his campaign was “illegally” spied on for “the political gain of  Crooked Hillary Clinton and the DNC.”
