Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) just about brought the house down at a fundraiser at Trump’s Mar-a-Lago resort over the weekend.
With Robert Mueller’s investigation into alleged Trump-Russia collusion finally over, Graham said it’s time to launch an investigation into Hillary Clinton over the infamous Christopher Steele dossier.
It didn’t take long for the crowd to erupt into chants: “Lock her up!”
Time To Go
Now that the focus is off Trump colluding with the Russians, the document that started this mess is coming under even more scrutiny.
The Steele dossier was originally ordered by a Trump enemy. But when he stopped financing it, Clinton’s campaign and the Democratic National Committee (DNC) chipped in so the dossier could be completed.
We now know the dossier was completed largely using a CNN research tool called iReport.
Once completed, the dossier forwarded to the Justice Department — in part thanks to the late Sen. John McCain — where it was used to convince a judge to grant a warrant to surveil a 2016 Trump campaign staffer.
Yet, no one has been held accountable for this. What gives?
Lock Her Up
One of the things we learned throughout the several investigations into Trump and his team is that the FBI investigation into Hillary Clinton may have been conducted with bias.
Time and time again, we have seen proof that former FBI Director James Comey and several members of his investigative team did more to protect Clinton than they did to actually uncover any wrongdoing.
Comey clearly thought Clinton was going to win, so it is fairly reasonable to assume he was conducting that investigation to protect his job.
The dossier mentioned above was actually debunked by Comey, and he still used it when filing for the warrants.
The fact that the dossier was financed by Clinton then ended up in the hands of Comey is, in itself, a reason for concern.
As Graham said, it’s time someone to start looking into all of this. Someone needs to be held accountable.
