GOP Senator Lindsey Graham Accuses Clinton Campaign Of Writing To Email Investigators

There is “reason to believe” that emails the Hillary Clinton campaign allegedly sent to the Justice Department last year still exist, according to Sen. Lindsey Graham.

The South Carolina Republican, a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, called on the former Democratic presidential nominee to share the emails with the panel. He pointed out that the correspondence took place during the FBI’s probe of Clinton’s email practices when she was secretary of state. “If there was a communication to the Department of Justice about an ongoing investigation from people who are the subject of the investigation, I want to know that,” Graham told Fox News.

The senator also appeared on the program to comment on the latest revelations about the scandal involving Russian interference in the 2016 election and the Trump campaign’s alleged involvement. The FBI and several congressional panels, including the House and Senate intelligence committees, are investigating the matter. This week, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein appointed former FBI Director Robert Mueller to serve as special counsel in an independent probe.

Graham claimed he is unaware of any proof that Trump or his associates committed crimes. He said Mueller’s appointment “knocks Congress out of the game for all practical purposes,” adding: “Now I think the public will be one of the biggest losers of this decision” because there probably will be no more public hearings featuring former FBI Director James Comey or others.

During a recent appearance on NBC News’ “Meet the Press,” Graham called for a “reset” of the investigation. “The president has a chance to clean up the mess that he mostly created,” the senator said, according to CNN. “He really, I think, did his staff a disservice by changing the explanation.” Graham was referring to the administration’s conflicting versions of why Trump fired Comey last week. Initially, the White House said the director lost his job because of how he handled the Clinton email investigation.

Later, aides pointed to a letter from Rosenstein and Attorney General Jeff Sessions that recommended Comey’s dismissal. However, Trump told NBC News’ Lester Holt that he had decided to fire the director before he received the letter, which Rosenstein says the administration asked him to write. Trump defended his staffers by arguing that it is “not possible” to always be accurate.

On Friday, Trump threatened Comey. “Better hope that there are no ‘tapes’ of our conversations before he starts leaking to the press,” he tweeted. That did not stop the former FBI chief from accusing the president of pressuring him to end the bureau’s investigation of former national security adviser Michael Flynn, who was forced to resign in February because of his Russian connections.
