Sen. Lindsey Graham pledged to “get answers” for the American people Monday on allegations of FISA abuse at the Department of Justice; saying the nationwide scandal would make “front-page” news if the “shoe were on the other foot.”
Graham was speaking with reporters hours after Robert Mueller released his final report; confirming there was “no collusion” between the Trump campaign and Russian officials during the 2016 race for the White House.

“I’ve been talking since 2017 about the other side of the story. Nobody much appears to care but I hope you’ll find some interest now,” said Graham.
“A FISA warrant issued against Carter Page -based on a dossier prepared by Christopher Steele- is at a minimum disturbing. Whether or not it’s illegal I don’t yet know. I’m going to get answers to this… If the shoe were on the other foot, it’d be front-page news all over the world,” he added.
