Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham says as he wants to question former FBI Director James Comey and former Attorney General Loretta Lynch to find out if they gave Hillary Clinton a ‘free pass’ on her email investigation.
“I know Bill Barr pretty well, and he’s pretty upset about the way all this was handled,” said Graham. “I don’t know if he’s going to have a special prosecutor to look at the probability of criminal misbehavior,” Graham said. “I’m going to look at what happened from an oversight role. But I hope there’s a special counsel appointed to look at DOJ corruption and political bias, you know? Because Mueller did his job against Trump. Nobody’s really looked at the Clinton campaign, the FISA warrant abuse or the counterintelligence investigation for criminality yet and somebody should.”
Asked if he thinks the Clinton emails investigation will be reopened, Graham demurred.
“I’m not so much worried about retrying her, but I want to make sure that the public understands that she got away with something they wouldn’t get away with,” he said. “I think it’s important to understand that political bias probably drove the Clinton outcome, not the facts. I really don’t believe that Comey just took over the investigation from [former Attorney General Loretta] Lynch based on a tarmac meeting. I just want the American public to know that the standard used against Clinton is an outlier. It’s not the way business is done. And why did they choose that path? I think they had a political bias. They wanted Clinton to win, Trump to lose. And here’s the point. How could she win if the Department of Justice indicted her? I think that’s what drove the decision not to indict. They wanted her to win.”
Trump has long attacked Clinton for the email controversy. During the 2016 campaign the chant “Lock her up” became a mainstay at his rallies and during one of their debates Trump told Clinton she would “be in jail” if he was elected president.
