Graham: FBI investigation in 2016 turned into a ‘criminal conspiracy’

Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) ripped the FBI’s investigation into Trump campaign associates on Monday, arguing it was a “criminal enterprise” and showed a system that “got off the rails.”

“I believe there will be no debate among reasonable minded people … about how the system not only got off the rails but, in my view, became a criminal enterprise to defraud the FISA court, to deny American citizen Carter Page his constitutional rights and to continue an operation against President Trump as president of the United States that I think was fundamentally flawed and unlawful,” Graham said during a press conference.

His remarks to reporters followed the release of Justice Department inspector general Michael Horowitz’s findings from a two-year investigation into the FBI’s decision to open up a probe during the 2016 campaign into Trump associates.
