Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) joined “Fox & Friends” Friday morning after President Trump gave Attorney General William Barr the green light to declassify documents pertaining to spying on President Trump’s 2016 campaign.
Graham believes that the declassification will contain a lot of information showing the FBI overstepped its authority.
Sen. Lindsey Graham said that declassification is “long overdue” and [Republicans] will be interested in it, but added that “not one Democrat will give a damn.”
“Barr is going to look at it from a criminal point of view. Horowitz is going to tell us about the FISA warrant, internally how the FBI and the Justice Department behaved. And I’m going to look at all of it, to make sure it never happens again. I’m going to make sure we have FISA laws that can detect when someone is giving the court a bunch of garbage. I’m going to make sure we have some rules– you just can’t open up a counterintelligence investigation on a Presidential candidate without having a good reason,” he explained.
The South Carolina Senator pointed out that the people involved had “political motives” who were out to get Trump and help Hillary Clinton. “How do you prosecute her, if you want her to win? The reason she wasn’t charged, I think, is [be]cause they knew if they charged her, she probably wouldn’t win the election. The people in charge had a deep-seated bias for her and against Trump and they ignored stop sign after stop sign because they wanted to get an outcome. The big thing is, they gave [Hillary] a pass,” Graham said.
Graham also cautioned Democrats against embracing impeaching President Trump and noted that “most Americans” think impeaching Trump is “nuts,” but added that impeachment is what all Democrats want to run on. (Continued Below)
“The Democrats are going to get him reelected! I don’t think you can become the nominee of the Democratic party unless you embracing impeachment. If you’re a House member of the Democrat caucus, you’re going to get a primary if you vote against impeachment because the people that want to impeach this President have lost their mind and they’re driving the Democrat party over an edge. Between what President Trump has accomplished for this country and how crazy they’ve become, he’s going to get reelected,” Graham said confidently.
He suggested that Speaker Nancy Pelosi is going to lose her job if she doesn’t “embrace impeachment” because the people she’s in charge of have lost their mind when it comes to Trump.
Their nominee will say that Donald Trump needs to be impeached, and that’s why he’s going to win because most Americans think that’s nuts– 53% want to end the Russian investigation,” Graham said. “The President’s done a damn good job on the things that matter to you: keeping you safe, increasing your paycheck, and the best is yet to come.” (Continued Below)
