Less than 24 hours after the House passed—without a single no vote—a nonbinding resolution to make Robert Mueller’s final report public, Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) said on Thursday that he could not back the congressional effort. Graham is calling for Attorney General William Barr to appoint a new special counsel to investigate “misconduct” in the Department of Justice over the email investigation and the FBI’s surveillance of Carter Page, a former aide to the Trump campaign.
Speaking on the floor, Graham said,“Any American out there who did what Secretary Clinton did, you’d be in jail now. We let Mueller look at all things Trump related to collusion and otherwise. Somebody needs to look at what happened on the other side and find out if the FBI and the DOJ had two systems, one supporting the person they wanted to win and one out to get the person they wanted to lose.If the shoe were on the other foot. All hell would pay.”
