Graham releases Crossfire Hurricane transcripts, slams ‘incredibly biased’ investigators

The FBI investigation into President Donald Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign over allegations of Russian collusion has long been decried as a “witch hunt” by the president and many key allies.

In the ongoing saga’s latest wrinkle, Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham (R-SC) authorized the release of a treasure trove of documents related to the federal probe dubbed “Crossfire Hurricane.”

“Incompetent and corrupt”

While he said he wanted to release everything possible in an effort to expose the alleged corruption of the intelligence officials behind the investigation, he noted that some details from the 11 witness transcripts remained classified and could not be released.

Graham thanked the witnesses for their “candor” and cooperation in the probe before sharing his conclusions.

“I believe that Crossfire Hurricane was one of the most incompetent and corrupt investigations in the history of the FBI and DOJ,” he said.

The South Carolina Republican went on to claim that the “FISA court was lied to” in the pursuit of warrants against Trump campaign officials.

“Exculpatory information was withheld on those being investigated,” Graham added. “The investigators, with some notable exceptions, were incredibly biased and used the powers of law enforcement for political purposes. The subjects of the investigation had their lives turned upside down. It is my hope that counterintelligence investigations will be reined in and this never happens again in America.”

“A blind eye”

Pointing a finger directly at former FBI Director James Comey and top attorney Andrew McCabe, he said the bureau leaders were either “grossly incompetent” or criminal.

“There was a blind eye turned toward any explanation other than the Trump campaign was colluding with foreign powers,” Graham said.

Although officials in the FBI and Justice Department reportedly knew by August 2017 that there was no concrete evidence supporting a Trump-Russia connection, Graham noted that special counsel Robert Mueller continued to investigate the president for another year and a half.

“Former FBI Director Comey and his deputy Mr. McCabe, through their incompetence and bias, have done a great disservice to the FBI and DOJ, and the senior DOJ leadership who signed off on the work product called the Crossfire Hurricane investigation have created a stain on the department’s reputation that can only be erased by true reform,” the GOP senator said.

U.S. Attorney John Durham continues to lead a team investigating the origins of the Trump-Russia collusion probe, but his findings have yet to result in an official report.

  1. Our republicans knew everything was a lie against trump just like they know there was voter fraud but did anyone say anything. No. We need a new party. Don’t send a dime to any republican they all betrayed us

    1. That RINO Party is on its last leg and I will never ever support it again! We must break off and either go Independent or form a MAGA Party !

    1. They are going back to lick their wounds and sink back into the same old rut with Trump gone! I hoped they’d find a good strong backbone and give the demonRATS some once overs but I’m not holding my breath! Democrats are in charge now and we’re going to become a communist country if he sells us to China!

    2. I’m not a lawyer and I’m not a fan of lawyers and demonRATS but I will go after democrats and rinos to expose them!

  3. Trump has done GREAT for our country. Everyone knows it, but as we all know dems will do anything (much fraud) to get what they want!

    1. Our party new it was all a lie&the rhinos that voted to impeach him again,don’t deserve to even be there.
      Mitch McConnell needs to resign along with the other traitors in our party.
      We need a patriot party.

    2. Amen to that!!! Its disgusting what they have done to this poor man after all the amazing he has done for the American people.

      That pos Pelosi is the biggest domestic terrorist we have today. All of these corrupt swamprats should be rotting in prison for treason. !!!!

      1. Disagree with the comment of rotting in a prison.

        They should be executed by Public Hanging or Firing Squads. Nothing less otherwise other Traitors will continue following the same directions. Americans deserve so much more from OUR elected members.

        Until these Pukes are dealt with in a severe manner, NOTHING will ever change!!!!!!!!

      1. Every state get petitions and get all the signatures we can and present it to the court’s against Pelosi and the Democratic Party show them we the people have had enough, they have committed crimes against the American people and especially President Trump, they are not fit to run our government, Biden will hurt America and its citizens by allowing all other countries border crossers into the USA. His policies are week and China Joe is in their pockets their money is their power and needs to be cut off We need to fight back. Petitions

      1. And the illegals are waiting at the wall to get into our country and rape and pillage and kill Americans! Blame Biden when it happens and the voters that voted for him!!!!

  4. From what I have seen in the last 4 years, even if there is indisputable proof, the courts will not allow the case to be seen or prosecuted, so what is the point.

  5. 75 Million Trump Voters have known this for four years and there doesn’t seem to be any traction, to what looks like Treason. Why would a country accept the spying on a Candidate for the USA Presidency and there are no consequences. 75 Million Trump Voters need to see a Justice System that is even handed. And, more importantly the Truth is the Truth, or we are screwed.

  6. The democrats and the mainstream media have lied for 4 years. Why does anyone believe them now?? I sure dont. The riot was staged by dems and their buddies they’ve been getting out of jail when they protest.

  7. Obama ,cliton comey ,biden ,The reason I don’t capitalize their names is they are “CROOKS”And the rest of the crooks that helped them should all be in “jail”

  8. Same thing happened when election fraud was discovered and proven…..From what I heard, it was just dumped by many courts as well as the SUPREME COURT! It all sucks but nothing we can do!

  9. Well, basically, a LOT of time and money spent on nothing! They will probably never release the Durham report, you might find pages of it used as bathroom tissue in congress, or the senate, but no prosecutions. There is ample evidence, but most redacted, never to see the light of day. More accurate covering for Obama, killary, Biden and the rest of the sewer roaches pretending to be politicians! Sorry bunch of losers!

  10. Move the rhinos out or go to independent and go after them that way but I know that would not work but got to do something if they get away with this one we as a free country are doomed, god bless America.

  11. True, True, and True. There needs to be immediate action/prosecutions. There needs to be a fair election with the elected being Statesmen /( women ), not career politicians. Term limits. Pay cuts , as well as pension cuts. They should feel the same inconveniences as “We the People”.
    Obama, HR & B Clinton, Biden, Bush, Kerry, Palosi, Comey etc. all need to be jailed for treason and /or all their specific crimes. If a noose is valid then so be it. Our Constitutional Republic must be returned to We the People.
    The Patriot Party is long overdue !

  12. Well Obama got a 65 million dollars to write a book, think about that? How many other people get that deal?? Besides Democrats??
    What scarred me is that Democrats think they are doing right by trying to turn our country into a communist country. They can not see past their Own propaganda.

  13. Trump should take advantage of the military in DC ,and arrest all the conspirators on the day of the swearing in.Maybe the rioters we are being told to prepare for are the Democrats when there party is declared to be the anti American anti Constitution traders

  14. While I know everyone including myself are very upset with the Republican party and the Rhinos for NOT supporting Trump. Leaving the party IMO is wrong at this time. Until there is a firm 3rd party that we can support we have to have voting reform! If you leave the 2 party system now isn’t it TRUE and Law that YOU would be unable to vote in primaries??? And if that were the case I would rather be voting for the better of Republican candidates than not to be able to vote at all. Please correct me if wrong, TYIA
