Sen. Lindsey Graham may be a NeverTrumper, but he certainly isn’t a Hillary Clinton fan, and he’s ready to make sure everybody knows that by reopening the investigation into Hillary Clinton’s emails now that Barack Obama is out of the way and unable to obstruct it.
Not only did Sen. Graham say he didn’t fully understand why there was a special prosecutor even being appointed to investigate the claims of Pres. Trump colluding with Russia, he even stated that he has not seen any evidence saying anything nefarious even took place.
Despite suggesting at a CNN Townhall earlier this month that he may be open to the idea of a special prosecutor. “There may be nothing there,” Graham said. “But if there is something there that the FBI believes is criminal in nature, then for sure you need a special prosecutor.”
Still, during his Fox News interview, he took it one step further and brought up Hillary Clinton’s email scandal in which he’s ready to reopen.
“I don’t know what caused the appointment. I haven’t seen any evidence of a crime yet. The bottom line is I respect the decision, but this pretty much shuts Congress down. Democrats, you got what you wanted. You got a special counsel. Now we’ll just move on. We’re not prosecutors.”
“There’s a new front opening here. I have reason to believe that there are emails between Clinton campaign officials, democratic operatives to the Department of Justice regarding the Clinton email investigation that happened on Obama’s watch. I have reason to believe those emails exist.”
“I’m on the Judiciary Committee. And I think it’s important that the Judiciary Committee be given any emails that were directed to the Department of Justice by Clinton campaign officials or operatives because we have jurisdiction over the Department of Justice.”
Things are definitely heating up, and the Clinton machine is going to have to go into overtime to get out of this one, again.
