Sen. Lindsey Graham Calls for a Special Counsel to Investigate FBI, DOJ

Kerik's remarks came in response to transcripts showing former Federal Bureau of Investigation legal counsel Lisa Page testified to Congress that the Department of Justice ordered the Federal Bureau of Investigation not to charge Clinton with "gross negligence" for mishandling classified information.

Graham made the remarks in response to a Democrat-backed resolution that passed in the House unanimously earlier in the day, which calls for any final report in special counsel Robert Mueller's Russian Federation investigation to be made public.

Page, who served as a special counsel to former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, has been criticized by Republicans for exchanging texts with Peter Strzok (a former FBI counterintelligence official) that were critical of Trump. "And that's, as I said, the advice that we got from the Department was that they did not think - that it was constitutionally vague and not sustainable".

Page went on to reveal that there was a significant assumption being made. Strzok argued that he "never took resources off one and put it onto the other" but that "a hostile foreign power. seeking to clandestinely influence our presidential election" was a far graver threat than the charge that Clinton was mishandling classified information.

President Trump has taken notice of the discrepancy. "Much more to come!" On the other hand, CNN explained away Page's testimony as another GOP witch hunt, so the average person may see this finger-pointing as politics as usual.

"No he won't. We'll stop it", Strzok replied.

Graham referenced the tarmac meeting between former Attorney General Loretta Lynch and former President Bill Clinton, as well as a number of unfounded claims which are prominent in conservative circles.

And consider that the DOJ is still "slow-walking" the case, according to Rep. Collins.

The use of private servers by then-State Secretary Hillary Clinton was a major factor in the 2016 campaign, with Trump repeatedly using it to attack his Democrat rival.

Page's testimony does shine a bit more light on the rank corruption that existed within the Obama Justice Department, but not enough to wake the mainstream media from its partisan slumber.
