Senator Lindsey Graham stopped-by ‘Hannity’ Monday night to weigh-in on allegations of abuse and political bias at the Department of Justice; saying there is little doubt that Hillary Clinton clearly committed Obstruction of Justice.
“The bulk of information in the FISA application in October 2016 that led directly to spying on the Trump campaign, was the Hillary, phony Russian Dossier. James Comey signed it,” said Hannity.
“It’s not a theory. We know that Comey told the President that I want you to know about the unverified dossier. That’s the same document given to the court in October. Those two things don’t add up. Those are facts that need to be reconciled,” said Graham.
“There was no collusion with the Russians. Case closed, let’s look at all these other people and find out how we got in this mess to begin with… Taking a hammer to a phone, bleaching evidence are classic examples of Obstruction of Justice,” he added.
Recently obtained emails exchanged between Peter Strzok and Lisa Page show the FBI aimed to accommodate requests from Hillary Clinton’s lawyers leading up to the 2016 race for the White House.
“Internal FBI emails released Monday show FBI officials in 2016 sought to ‘expeditiously’ accommodate a request for information from then-Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton’s lawyer, in what a conservative watchdog group claimed is evidence of ‘special treatment,’” reports Fox News.
“Judicial Watch – a group that routinely sues for government records – obtained and released 218 pages of emails between former FBI officials Peter Strzok and Lisa Page. Many of the emails have to do with the bureau’s investigation into whether Clinton improperly used a private email server as secretary of state to discuss classified information,” adds the article.
“The emails released Monday, meanwhile, show then-FBI General Counsel James Baker writing that he spoke with Clinton’s lawyer, David Kendall, in August 2016 and promised that the FBI would work to hand over a copy of the 302 from Clinton’s interview ‘expeditiously,’” writes Fox.
Clinton’s email probe was thrust again into the national spotlight last week when former Attorney General Loretta Lynch contradicted James Comey’s Congressional testimony regarding the investigation.
“So you do not believe you ever instructed him to call it a matter?” one lawmaker asked Lynch.
“I did not. I have never instructed a witness as to what to say specifically. Never have. Never will,” fired-back the former Attorney General.
Lynch’s comments directly refute Comey’s Congressional testimony.
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: Christopher Steele Not a ‘Reliable Informant’ for the FBI, Paid by DNC
Sen. Lindsey Graham stopped-by ‘Hannity’ Tuesday night to comment on recent revelations surrounding ‘Trump Dossier’ author Christopher Steele; saying the former British spy was “not a reliable informant” for the FBI.
“This new report and the closed-door testimony where we know Bruce Ohr under oath said it’s an unverified dossier and Steele hates Trump,” said Hannity.
“You’re supposed to say under oath to the court that the document is accurate, that’s the whole point of getting a warrant, you have to have reliable information… Christopher Steele went to the Department of State to get the Department to release the document for political reasons,” fired-back Graham.
“We know that without the dossier the warrant would not have been issued. He was not a reliable informant for the FBI… He was paid by the Democrats to take Trump down,” he added.
