Sen. Lindsey Graham stopped by ‘Hannity’ Wednesday night to weigh-in on CNN’s recent decision to hire former Deputy Director of the FBI Andrew McCabe; saying the network just employed the “alleged architect of a criminal conspiracy” against the Trump campaign.
“Wasn’t he fired for lying and leaking?” asked Hannity.
“Compare the coverage CNN gave the Mueller report to the Horowitz report… Here’s what happened: CNN has just hired the alleged architect of a criminal conspiracy against the Trump campaign. How much time and attention do you think they’re going to give the Horowitz report when they hired the guy Horowitz was investigating?” said Graham.
“Former FBI deputy director Andrew McCabe, who became one of President Donald Trump’s top enemies within his own administration, is joining CNN as a contributor, a network spokesperson said. His first day is Friday,” reports CNBC.
“The CNN gig comes as McCabe is fighting that termination in court. Earlier this month, McCabe filed a lawsuit in U.S. District Court alleging that his removal was part of a scheme by the president to remove government employees ‘because they were not politically loyal to him,’” adds the website. “McCabe’s hiring was reported earlier by CNN’s senior media reporter Oliver Darcy.”
McCabe filed a lawsuit earlier this month against the FBI and the Department of Justice; suing the agency for his pension and retirement funds while blaming President Trump for his termination.
“The former acting director and a 23-year veteran of the Federal Bureau of Investigation filed a lawsuit against the Department of Justice and the FBI Thursday, demanding taxpayers foot the bill for his full pension and healthcare benefits he missed out on when he was fired last year,” reports Fox Business.
“Andrew McCabe – whom an inspector general found had improperly leaked information to a reporter and lied about it to his boss, then-FBI Director James Comey – is blaming President Trump for his firing, according to the lawsuit,” adds Fox.
McCabe’s lawsuit comes just hours after former FBI agent Peter Strzok filed a similar claim against the Department of Justice.
GRAHAM ON HANNITY: America Today is Far ‘Safer Than Two Years Ago’
Sen. Lindsey Graham stopped by ‘Hannity’ Tuesday night to comment on the President’s State of the Union address; saying Trump’s policies have made America far “safer today than we were two years ago.”
“Unlike Obama, he’ll adjust his policies where it makes sense. He’s unleashed the military on our enemies, he’s gotten out of a bad deal and replaced it with a better deal. We’re more respected, we’re safer today than we were two years ago,” said Sen. Graham.
“He took everything Obama did to suppress economic growth and replaced it with pro-growth policies… Everything Obama did, this guy’s doing the opposite and it’s working,” he added.

GRAHAM ON HANNITY: Bruce Ohr’s 302s ‘Just the Tip of the Iceberg’ on Anti-Trump Bias at DOJ
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.
