Senator Lindsay Graham Predicts IG Report Will Be ‘Ugly and Damning’

Senate Judiciary Chairman Lindsay Graham predicted that the Inspector General report into FBI surveillance of the Trump campaign will be “ugly and damning” for the FBI and Department of Justice.

Appearing on Maria Bartiromo’s show on Sunday, Graham said “I want it all out. I want people to see how off the rails this investigation got, and I want people to be held accountable.” Inspector General Michael Horowitz has been investigating the government’s misleading shenanigans with the FISA court since March of 2018.

“I believe the Horowitz report is going to be ugly and damning regarding the Department of Justice handling of the Russia probe,” Graham said on Sunday. He also said he wants as much as the report declassified as possible.

“I want the American public to hear the story. I want all this information to come out. I want them to read for themselves how bad it was, the warrant application to the [Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act] Court I think was quite frankly a fraud on the court.”

There has been speculation that the CIA had some kind of involvement with the investigation into the Trump 2016 campaign.

“I really am very curious about the role the CIA played here. We know that the FISA warrant application was based on a dossier prepared by Christopher Steele who was biased against Trump that was unverified,” he said.

“But this whole intelligence operations — what role did the CIA play? Who knew about this in the White House?” asked Graham.
