Senator Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) it out for justice.
Graham, on Friday, sent a letter to Attorney General Barr requesting interviews with a laundry list of DOJ officials for their role in the bogus Russian interference investigation.
Time to Talk
In all, Graham has asked Barr to send him 17 employees of the Department of Justice.
His letter stated, “As you are aware, the committee is continuing to investigate matters related to the Justice Department and the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s handling of the Crossfire Hurricane investigation, including the application for, and renewals of, a Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act [FISA] warrant on Carter Page.”
In addition to the employees named in the letter, Graham is also expected to call James Comey, Andrew McCabe, Rod Rosenstein, and Sally Yates, all top former FBI and DOJ officials in office at the time of the launch of the investigation.
Graham stated, “I am going to get to the bottom of the FISA work process because it was an abuse of power of the Department of Justice, the FBI.”
This is all in response to the report that was issued by Inspector General Horowitz that was released earlier this year outlining a slew of FISA abuses during the Russian investigation.
Will We Get Justice?
I would like to believe something will actually come of this, but after the events of this past week, it would seem that when it comes time to put people behind bars, Graham will be swimming upstream.
Don’t get me wrong, Graham is going to find out what happened and I have no doubt he will make recommendations for changes to the FISA process.
However, as far as these officials go, do not expect any indictments to be handed down from this investigation.
Attorney General Barr proved Friday that he may be very much tied into the corruption of the DOJ.
Remember, Barr previously served during the Bush administration, so he has ties that run very deep in the DOJ.
The fact that he allowed McCabe to walk free after he both lied to FBI investigators and leaked confidential information tells you all you need to know about how far he is willing to go.
Barr has provided us with nothing but lip service. He says all the right things and will prosecute anyone, as long as they are not politicians and not former DOJ employees, at least those in leadership.
Our only true hope at this point, though, is that the system is fixed moving forward to ensure what happened to Donald Trump never happens to another president again.
