Both CNN and MSNBC Refuse to Air Senator Graham’s Full Opening Statement

Senator Lindsey Graham gave a powerful opening statement to kick off Wednesday’s Senate Judiciary Committee hearing with Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz, but if you were watching CNN or MSNBC,  you wouldn’t know it.

Horowitz is on Capitol Hill to testify before senators about his report on the FBI’s investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election and the Trump campaign’s ties to Russia.

His report, published Monday, concluded that the investigation was adequately predicated and not influenced by bias, but his team found many disturbing deficiencies and inaccuracies in how the bureau conducted its probe.

Both MSNBC and CNN blocked their viewers from watching Graham’s entire opening statement.

Apparently, MSNBC switched to full screen coverage the minute ranking Democrat Dianne Feinstein began her statement.

Rather than covering Graham’s opening statement, CNN aired Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) blathering about the impeachment of President Trump, an update on Boeing airplane safety and a discussion about capital punishment, the Daily Caller reported.

During his important and effective opening statement, Graham read the damning text messages from FBI lovebirds Peter Strzok and Lisa Page, and Kevin Clinesmith, the FBI lawyer who was referred for criminal prosecution for improperly altering a document, making it clear that something beyond innocent “irregularities” was going on between the FBI investigative team.

“What’s been described as a few irregularities becomes a massive criminal conspiracy over time to defraud the [Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act]  FISA court, to illegally surveil an American citizen and to keep an operation open against a sitting president of the United States, violating every norm known to the rule of law,” Graham charged.

Here is Graham’s entire opening statement, which was covered uninterrupted by Fox News.
