Senator Lindsey Graham wants former FBI director James Comey to testify –again- before Congress after recent revelations regarding the bureau’s investigation of Hillary Clinton’s private email server raises serious concerns, saying, “I smell a rat.”
“This doesn’t add up, and I smell a rat here,” the Senator told Fox News. “[James Comey] needs to come back to committee.”
The Republican Senator was referring to newly released information that shows the former FBI chief drafter a letter exonerating Hillary Clinton of any criminal wrongdoing months before he met with the former Secretary and other key witnesses.
Graham and Senator Chuck Grassley came across the information while investigating the former FBI chief’s removal from the Trump administration; reviewing official transcripts and communications between senior Department of Justice officials.
The “draft letter” raises serious ethical and criminal concerns over whether James Comey was pressured to abandon Hillary’s investigation by Obama aides for political purposes.
The former Secretary of State was cleared of any wrongdoing just weeks before the 2016 presidential election.
