Sen. Lindsey Graham stopped by ‘Hannity’ Thursday night to weigh in on Bruce Ohr’s recently released 302 documents; saying the material is “just the tip of the iceberg” on anti-Trump bias at the Department of Justice during the 2016 election.
“This is the tip of the iceberg. I know personally that there’s a lot more out there. The word that keeps coming out is: ‘Bias.’ The people investigating Clinton wanted her to win and Trump to lose. The people that started the investigation against Trump wanted him to lose and her to win,” said Graham.
“There’s a common theme here, that the investigation of Trump was very biased… They knew that if they brought a case against Clinton she would lose the election, and they didn’t want her to lose,” he added.
Former FBI agent Peter Strzok -know for his anti-Trump text messages with other employees- is suing the federal government for allegedly violating his First and Fifth Amendment rights.
“In a lawsuit filed on Tuesday, Strzok excoriates the Justice Department and FBI for their handling of his dismissal over a trove of text messages he wrote to a colleague that were critical of Trump. Strzok accuses the president of inappropriately bullying law enforcement officials deciding his fate, raises questions about why his texts were leaked to the media and lambastes the administration for only defending its employees’ free speech rights when they are praising Trump,” reports Politico.

“Specifically, Strzok’s lawsuit accuses the agencies of violating his First and Fifth Amendment rights by firing him over the texts and then depriving him of due process to challenge his expulsion. And, Strzok argues, DOJ’s decision to give the incendiary messages to reporters before handing them to Congress — generating blaring headlines — was ‘deliberate and unlawful,’ a violation of the Privacy Act,” adds the website.
