Graham opens IG hearing with scathing take on FISA report: The system failed

Show Video

You have labored. Hard and your work product is impressive, and, I just want to thank you all for what you've done for the country and. Mr.. Horowitz I'm dying to hear from you but I. Bet I haven't made 20 minutes of opening statements, in a year if I'm taking a little bit longer, to. Try to lay out what I think is before. Us as a nation. Crossfire. Hurricane was, probably the best name. Ever given, to an investigation, in the history, of, investigations. Because I think that's what we wound up with a crossfire. And a hurricane. There's. Been a lot of media. Reports, about, your report, before. It was issued, and. I remember, reading all these headlines. Lawful. Investigation. With a few irregularities. Everything. Okay. Low-level. People kind of got off track. If. That's what you get out of this report you. Clearly, didn't, read it. If. That's your takeaway that this thing was lawfully. Predicated. And that's. The main point, you. Missed the entire report. How. Do you get a headline like that that's what you want it to be. You. Want it to be that. And nothing, more and I. Can assure you if this has been a, Democratic, president going. Through what President Trump had gone through that would not have been the headline, the. Headline would be the FBI takes, law in this own hands, biased. Agents, cut corners, lie. To court. Ignore. Exoneration. So. The first thing I want you to know is, how. The, cake is baked here and. My goal is to make sure that. People. When this is over whether. You like Trump hate Trump, don't. Care about Trump. You. Look at this as more than a few irregularities. Because. If this becomes a few irregularities. In. America. Then. God, help us all. Now. The. People that were in charges, in this investigation, were hand-picked, by. Mr.. McCabe who. Is now CNN analyst, high. Up in the FBI, the number-two, guy. The. First question, I will ask in a bit. Is. This the best of the best. Are. These, people, normal, representatives. Of the, Department, of Justice, in the FBI I hope. You will say no. Because. I believe it to be no and. If. I believed otherwise I would. Be incredibly. Depressed. So. Ladies, and gentlemen. I'm. Going to assume something for the sake of argument that, there. Was a lawful predicate. To, open up a counterintelligence, investigation. And I want you to know the standard, to open one up is about, like that. And. I also want you to know a counterintelligence. Investigation. Is not. A criminal, investigation. They're. Not trying to solve a crime they're. Trying to stop foreign, powers. From. Interfering. In America. That. A counterintelligence. Investigation. Is designed, to protect. Americans. From, foreign. Influence, I want. The American people to know there. Was an effort to, affect Hillary, Clinton's, campaign by. Foreign, actors. The. FBI, picked up that effort they, briefed her about it and they. Were able to stop it, we. Will be receiving, a defensive, briefing tomorrow as a committee, from. The FBI to tell us all about what, we should be watching for and they, may be some, specific threats, against, us I don't, know but. I know they're going to brief us to. Protect, us not. To surveil us and here's. One on every American to know from. The time they opened up crossfire, hurricane. So. This debacle was over, they. Never made any effort. To brief Donald, Trump about, suspect. Problems, within his campaign, they. Had one briefing. Talking. About you know the Russians are out there you never you better beware. Nothing. About Carter, page nothing. About Papadopoulos, nothing. About the other people that, they thought might be working with the Russians why. Did they not tell him that I. Hope. You can give us an answer. Bottom. Line ladies and gentlemen a, counterintelligence. Investigation. Is a. Good thing. Until. It becomes a bad thing. Because. It doesn't take much to open one and the.

Worst Thing can happen is for. People to open one up whose. Real purpose is not to protect an, American. But. To surveil them. Senator. Feinstein, found herself in a situation all, of us may one day find ourselves in, a longtime. Employee was, suspected, of having ties to a foreign government they. Informed, her and she took appropriate action how. Easy would it be for. Somebody to come in our campaigns, as a volunteer. We. Really don't know who they are you just appreciate any help you can get. How. Does he would it, be for all of us to get caught up in this scenario I hope. All of us would appreciate if, you really believe there's somebody in my campaign, working, with a foreign power please tell me. So. I can do something about it. Why. Didn't they tell Trump. We'll. Figure that out later. But. I think it's a question needs to be asked. So. For. A moment let's assume that there was a lawful predicate, to open up a counterintelligence, investigation. What. Has been described as a few irregularities. Becomes. A massive criminal, conspiracy over. Time to. Defraud the FISA Court, to. Illegally, surveil an American, citizen, and keep. An operation, open against a sitting president the United States violating. Every norm known to the rule of law. Many. Of your prosecutors. I mean have you been US attorneys, I mean. Have you been defense attorneys. Trump's. Time will come and go. But. I hope we understand, that what happened, here, can. Never happen again. Because. What happened here is not. A few irregularities, what, happened here is the system. Failed. People. At the highest level, of our government. Took. The law in their own hands, and. When I say defraud, the FISA Court I mean it. To. Your team. You. Are able to uncover and, discover, abuse. Of power I never, believed would actually, exist, in 2019. How. Bad is it is. As it was is was, as if, Jagger. Hoover came back to life, the. Old FBI. The. FBI that had a chip on its shoulder and. Wanted to intimidate, people and find. Out what was going on in your life and the law be damned. Martin. Luther King and just fill in the names. So. Who. Ran this thing. The. People were hand-picked, by. McCabe. The. Number, two guy at the FBI. The. Supervisory. Agent. The. Dev the Assistant Director for counterintelligence as Peter struck, he's. A big player and all. Things. Crossfire. Hurricane. Lisa. Page you, may have heard of her who was she she. Was an FBI lawyer. Working for McCabe, these. Are two central, characters, in. This. Debacle. Let. Me tell you a little bit. About. Who these people are. And. Where. They're coming from. Thanks. To a lot of hard work by people. For. Mr. Horowitz the FBI and others. Here's. What we know, struck. The. Frontline supervisor. Fairbrother. 12 2016. Oh, he's. Trump abysmal. I keep. Hoping the, charade will end and people will just dump him the. Problem, then is that, Roubaix Rubio, will likely lose, to Cruz I.

Never. Quite made it and I couldn't understand what they would not consider me as serious candidate. The. Republican. Party is utter. Shambles. When. Was the last competitive. Ticket they offered. March. 3rd 2016. Page. God. Trump is a lo some human. Struck. Oh my, god he's, an idiot and, you. Know what newsrooms, all over the country people are nodding. This. Represents. The attitude, a lot of people in America and you can have that attitude but you should be in the, journalism business you. Shouldn't be at the FBI if, you were in the military and, you said anything, like, this about. A commander-in-chief you'd be charged with the crime remember. The McChrystal, debacle, where. They had a barroom, discussion. With a reporter, from The Rolling Stone what's, a takeaway don't, go to a bar with a Rolling Stone reporter. They. Started talking about how they dint like Joe Biden and, I, was one of the first people to say that is out of bounds you. Can have all the political opinions, you want but, if you're an officer in the United States military you. Will part those opinions and you, will not speak ill of the. Commander-in-chief but that obviously, is not a rule at the FBI Department, of Justice March. 16, 2016. I cannot. Believe Donald Trump is likely to, be actual. Serious, candidate, for president, July, 16th, we're getting closer to when this thing opens and while. Donald, Trump is an enormous douche, again a, lot of people agree with that. Trump. Barely, spoke but the first thing out of his mouth was we're going to win. So big, the. Whole thing is like living, in a bad dream July the 19th, 2016. Trump. Is a disaster, I have no, idea how destabilizing. His presidency, would be a lot of people believe that you're entitled to believe that but, you should not be an investigator. July. The 30th. The. Investigation. Is open and, damn. This feels momentous, about the investigation. Because, this matters, the. Others one did too but that was to ensure we didn't F something, up this, matters, because this, matters. So. Super glad to. Be on this voyage with you I hope. You understand, what, this voyage was about August. 8 2016. 3. Days. Before struck, was named the, frontline supervisor. He's. Not ever going to become president, right page, 2 struck. Struck. No, no. He won't, we'll stop it. These. Are the people in charge. August. 15th 2016. I want. To believe the path you threw out for consideration, and Andy's, office, that. There's no way he gets elected, but. I'm afraid we can't take that risk that. The American people will pick their presidents, what they're saying it's. Like an insurance policy in the unlike and like unlikely. Event you die, before you're 40. August. 26, 2016. Just. Went to southern. Just. Went to a southern Virginia Walmart, I could. Smell the Trump, support. People. In charge. October. 11 2016. Currently. Fighting was Stu for the FISA, Stu. Was a lawyer who thought this thing was not on the up-and-up, stood. His ground until. He couldn't stand it anymore. Eventually. Got run over. October. The 19th. I'm. All riled up Trump is an effing, idiot, is unable. To provide a coherent, answer, the. New york times probability. Numbers, are dry being everyday I'm scared. For our organization. November, the 3rd 2016. Oh my. God this. Is effing, terrifying. Referencing. An article, entitled a victory. By Trump, remains, possible. November. The night. 2016. Are. You ever going to give out your calendars. Some. Kind of depressing maybe. It should be the first meeting, of the secret society. November. The 13th, I, brought. All the I bought all the President's, Men I, figure. I needed, to brush up on Watergate. November. The 13th, 2016. Finally. To wait two pages away from finishing all, the President's, Men page. Destruct, did, you know the president, resigns at the end. Struck. What, god that would be so. Lucky. May. 18th. 2017. The. Date page accepted. A position on the special, counsels, team, for. Me in this. Case I personally, have a sense of unfinished, business. Unleashed. With. Nye, whatever, that means now. I need to fix it and finish it, struck. Who. Gives a F. One. More, assistant. Director, or whoever, an. Investigation. Leading to impeachment. May. 2017. You. Know I both know the odds are nothing. If I thought it was likely, I'd. Be there I'd be there I'd I'd. Be there no question. I hesitate. In part just.

Because Of my gut sense and concern there's, no big there they're. Talking. About impeachment. May. 22nd. 2017, I'm, torn. I think, no I'm, more, replaceable. Than you are in this I'm the. Best for it but, there are others who can do it okay. You're, different and more. Unique this is yours. Talking. To. Paige. Alright. That's. The front line supervisor, and, the. Lawyer to McCabe. There's. A guy named Klein Smith. Who. Eventually. Alters. An. Email. From the CIA. Through. The Department of Justice and FBI, and. Mr.. Horowitz has intein found, this out and how they did it I will never know I'm, jumping, ahead here but. When you read this report. What. They find is that, a lawyer. Supervising. The FISA process, at the. FBI. According. To mr. Horowitz, doctored. An email, from the CIA to the FBI and he's. Going to be referred for criminal, prosecution. Why. Is that important. Carter. Paige who's been on the receiving end, of all this. The. Foundation, to believe he was a foreign, agent comes from a dossier, that we'll talk about in a minute in, that. Dossier, provided, by Christopher, steel and we'll talk about him in a minute, they. Claim that, Carter Paige meets with three people known to be Russians. Russian. Agents. People. Associated, with Russia. Carter. Page while, being wiretapped by. His government. Says. I don't know two, of these people and to. This day there's. No proof that he, ever met two, of those three the. Third person, he says yeah. I met, him I told, the CIA about, my meeting because, I was a source for the CIA. So. They would have you believe that, Carter, page is working against, our government, not. With, our government. So. Carter page in the summer of 2017, is, trying. To tell anybody and everybody I. Was. Working, with the CIA I reported. My contact, with this person and, nobody. Believed, him. The. CIA had told the FBI it, was true earlier. But. It never made it through the system, somebody. Got so rattled at the FBI, they, asked mr., Klein Smith to check it out. He. Checks it, out, he. Communicates, with the CIA, is. Carter, page a source for you and. An. Email, exchange they, say yes he is. What. Does mr. Klein Smith do he. Alters, the email to say no, he's not and. You. Caught him I, don't. Know how you caught, him because. You got it dig into this email, chain. It. Would be like getting a lab report from the FBI the, fingerprints. Don't match and, the, agent says they do. That's. How bad this is, so. Now let me tell you a little bit about. Mr., Klein Smith if I can find it. All. Right this is the lawyer. Supervising. The FISA warrant, process the. Guy that altered, this CIA, email. Because, he didn't want the court to know that, Carter, page actually was a source and why does that matter because, that the court had known then, there's a lawful, reason, for mr. Page to be talking, to, the Russian guy he. Wasn't working against, his country he was working with his country which, undercuts, the idea he's a foreign agent that's why I climbed Smith lied because. He didn't want to stop this investigation. All. Right this is after the election I. Am. So stressed about what I could have done differently the day after the election. I've. Just devastated. I can't. Wait until I can leave today and just, shut off the world for the next four days I'm sure a lot of people felt that way after Trump got elected, maybe still feel that way but, you shouldn't be in charge of supervising, anything. About, Trump if you feel that way I just. Can't, imagine. The. Systematic. Disassembly. Of the progress, we've made over the last eight years the, Obama, administration. They're. Crazies, one. Finally. This. Is the lawyer that. They put in put in charge of supervising, the, warrant process, this. Is the Tea Party on steroids, and I'm. Sure their newsrooms all over America is saying that's absolutely, right what is wrong with that Oh.

Also. Pence is stupid. Whatever. This, is what the guy is saying right. After. The election and, it's. Just hard not to feel like the FBI calls, some of this it was, a razor-thin, in some. States, plus. My. Goddamn, name is all over the legal documents, investigating. Trump's path. And. This. Is the. One that. Gives me the most. November. The 22nd. Shortly. After the election of Donald J Trump, the. FBI, lawyer, in charge of supervising the, FISA process. Tweets. Out to friends. Viva. La resistance. What. Are the odds that this guy might do something wrong. Would. You have to be part of a right wing right, wing conspiracy, to. Protect, in the future maybe this guy will get off-script. Folks. If. These are a few irregularities. The. Rule of law in this country is dead, and, here's. The good news good, news these. Are not a few, irregularities. These, are a few bad, people. They. Couldn't believe Trump, won that want him to believe didn't, want him to win and when he won couldn't. Tolerate the fact that he won and. All. These smelly people elected, him. This. Is bad stuff. So if you get out of this report. Lawful. Investigation. With a few irregularities. It says, more about you than, mr. Horowitz. How. The hell did this whole thing start. What. Got us here today. They. Open up a counterintelligence, investigation. In July, we. Know the Russians, are messing in our election, and, it. Was the Russians, ladies and gentlemen who stole the Democratic. National Committee emails, Podesta's. Emails and screwed. Around with Hillary Clinton it wasn't the Ukrainians, it was the Russians and they're. Coming after us again, so. To be concerned, that. The Russians, are messing, with presidential, campaigns, was, a legitimate. Concern. Said. They looked around at the Trump campaign. And. Said well let's see, if we can protect the Trump campaign. Carter. Paige went. To Moscow, a lot made speeches, if. You've, ever met Carter page one thing you will not accuse him of as being James Bond. This. Poor guy Papadopoulos. Picked. By Sam Clovis, to be part of Trump's national security, team, this. National, security team was literally picked up off the street if you've. Had a photo with Donald Trump you spent more time with Donald Trump than Papadopoulos. And Paige. They're. Not paid they're volunteers. But. The FBI, thinks we, need to watch these guys for manna port as. Well as, who's, the other one Flynn. General Flynn so, they opened up a counterintelligence, investigation. Let's assume for a moment that the, small, predicate. You need has been, met. What. The hell happened, after, they opened it up what. Did they find. Were. Their suspicions, validated. Or. Did they find at every turn it's, really not true and they ignored it. So. One, of the first things they tried to do was. To get a warrant, under the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance. Act, to, follow car, Paige a volunteer. For the campaign an American citizen. They. Apply for the warrant internally, in August. Of. 2016. And the lawyers say you don't have enough. Why. Because, they had nothing. Maybe. This reasonable. Articulation. Is this. Small but. To get a warrant, from a court you've got to have probable, cause, so. The lawyers saying you don't have it. Everybody. Is now frustrated. Folks, that's. Not the right answer. So. McCabe's, suggests. The. Number two got the FBI well. Let's go look at this still dossier. Maybe. That will get us over the hump. Just. Stay tuned we'll, talk about that in a minute so.

In September the 19th, for the first time they. Introduced, the steel dossier. Into. The warrant application. Process, it. Worked. September. The 21st. They. Get a sign-off let's go get a warrant the. Dossier. Got. Them to where they wanted to go as you. Say mr. Horowitz, it was central, and basically. Outcome-determinative. Without. This dossier. They. Go nowhere with, it they're off to the races. Who. Is Christopher, Steele. You. Know these other people, were bad wait, to hear about this guy. Christopher. Steele was. A former. Mi6. Is, that right. Six. Five whatever it is he, was a British agent. Retired. He. Had a new line of business he. Was hired by a company, called fusion. Gps. To. Investigate. Donald Trump. Okay. You. Want to look at foreign influence, you're about to find it, fusion. GPS, is, on. The payroll of the Democratic, National Party. Christopher. Still is working. For a need to find dirt on Trump, and the, money comes from the Democratic, Party, did. They tell the court this no, is, that. A bit unnerving would, be to me. So. Christopher, still is. On the payroll of a company funded by the Democratic, Party here's. What Bruce or tells the FBI FBI, about Christopher still he. Was desperate, that Donald Trump not get elected, and was, passionate about him not being the US president. This. Is the guy that gave them the word product, to. Get the warrant. Still. Told. Or that if Trump won the elections, still, source, network may be in jeopardy by, a new FBI director. And new agency, heads appointed, by Trump who would have a higher degree of loyalty to the new president and could, decide to take action against still in his source network. Let. Me tell you about Christopher's, steel or. Was, right he. Was on a mission, to get Donald, Trump. Not. Only did he provide the. Dossier, that made, the difference in getting a warrant. His. Biases. Were well-known. He. Was shopping the dossier to. Anybody, in everybody. In the. Media and in politics, to, see if they would print it. The. Reason, the FBI cut, him loose because. They found out he was shopping this thing around to media outlets rather. Than being a valid. Source. But. After. They. Knew he was shopping it around they kept him around anyway, because, mr. hora kept talking to him and, you, think that's a bit Bruce ORS wife worked. With Christopher, steel. She. Was employed by fusion, GPS, the, life of the number four guy at the FBI. Christopher. Still went all over the, United States trying. To get media outlets, to publish, this garbage. The. First thing is about the golden, shower. About, the sexual encounter that President, Trump supposedly. Had and a. Ritz-carlton, hotel, in Russia. Let. Me tell you how I've come to find out about Christopher. Steele's work product, in. December. Of, 2016. John. McCain goes to a national, security conference, in, Canada, and. Somebody. Tells him about the, still, dossier. And it's. Bad and you need to know about it and, it. Gets to John McCain John. McCain puts, it in his safe he, gives it to me and I read it and the. First thing I thought of was oh my god. What. Are two things this could be Russian disinformation, or they may have something on Trump if you read this document, the. First thing you would think of is they got something, on Donald Trump. It. Is stunning it is damning, it is salacious, and it's. A bunch of crap. They. Finally, find the guy that, prepared. All the, information. But. A little bit about Steele in. 2015. The. British intelligence service. Said you. Need to watch this guy he's not reliable. They. Take time to go to London, to check. Still, out and they're. Told he demonstrates, lack of self-awareness poor, judgment. Keen. To help but, underpinned. By poor judgment, judgment. Pursuing, people political, risk but no Intel, value, if. You'd, spend 30 minutes, looking. At Christopher, still you, would understand, this guy is bias, he's. Got an axe to grind he's on the payroll of the opposing party take. Anything, he says with, a grain of salt. In. January. 2017. The. FBI, figures, out who. The sub source of the, steel dossier, is what. You need to know this, is not what steel found himself. This. Is what he gathered, from one person. They. Finally, found out who this one, person, is. They. Go talk to him in January, 2017. Five. People. Interview. The. Primary, sub source the guy that provided, steel with everything, and. They. Showed him the dossier. Read. Pages, 186. To 190. What. Does the russian guy tell. The FBI about, the FBI. About the dossier that. Still. Misstated. Or exaggerated. The prime sub, sources, statements, that. Trumps, alleged. Sexual, activities. At the ritz-carlton, hotel, in Moscow was. Rumor in speculation. He, went on to say he, heard it at a bar and. In. The report, it suggests, that a Western. Employee, of the ritz-carlton. Confirmed. This escapade, by, then.

A. Private. Citizen, Trump when. He read that he says that's not true, I never. Told still that somebody, working for the ritz-carlton, confirmed. This I heard, it at a bar. Primary. Sub source stated that. He never expected, still to put the primary, sources, statements, in report so present them as facts, they. Were word of mouth and hearsay. Conversations. Had with friends, over beers where, statements. Made in jest, that, should be taken, with a grain of salt. So. In January 2017. The. Person, who did all the assembling, of the information. For, the now-famous, steel, or still dossier, tells, the FBI, i disavow, everything, in there. Now. What. Should happen. Timeout. Let's. Reassess. Maybe. We got this wrong, what. Would you hope to happen. That. The FBI would slow down because, this is the outcome determinative. That's just had a hole blown through it, they. Don't slow down, they. Use the document, they now know to be a bunch of garbage twice. More to, get a warning against. Carter page, I hope, Carter page gets, a lawyer and sues the hell out of the Department of Justice and the FBI. Two. More warrants, were obtained, by the department justice and the FBI after being, told in January, by the Russian, guys all a bunch of bull. But. It gets worse. Here's. How they describe. The. Interview, to the court. The. FBI, found that the Russian based sub source to. Be truthful in cooperative. Nothing. About and oh by the way he, said everything in there is a bunch of bull. You. Knew in January. 2017, if there was no doubt before you, know by the guy who prepared, it that, he disavowed, everything, it's not true, it's a grain of salt you shouldn't, I didn't, say all these things instead. Of stopping they. Keep going, and instead. Of telling the court the, court the truth what they're required to do they, lie to the court a. Few. Irregularities. How. Would you like this to happen in your life how. Would you like to be on the receiving end, of this. To. Our people in the news, business what. Would you like how would you like this to be your news organization. In. January. 2017. There. Is no benefit, of the doubt to be given these. Five people, from. The Department, of Justice and the FBI have. Been told, by the one, guy who did, all the work as a bunch of garbage and the. Question, is how, far up to the system, did it go why. Did they apply for a warrants twice, more, why. Didn't they stop, everybody. Wants to know is there any bias here, what motivated, these people why do you think they kept going. Maybe. Because. They were on a mission, not. To protect Trump but, to protect, us from Trump, that's. What they were trying to protect all of us mentally people from Donald Trump that's, what this is about, what you believe it or not I believe it and, you. Know what it could happen y'all next time. There's. Some pretty passionate, people on our side that I wouldn't want to be investigating. Any of you. So. What happens, next. They. Get a warrant twice more when they know us a bunch of garbage they. Lie to the court about the actual interview I don't, know what McCadden called me knew but I'm dying to find out and should they have known. June. 2016-2017. This. Is the next time, they. Take the law in their own hands mr.. Klein Smith. Six. Months, after being told the dossier is a bunch of garbage. Kline. Smith alters. An. Email. From the CIA to change it from he is that he's not. Because. If they had told the court that, Paige. Was working for the CIA it, explains, the contact, in the dossier. Mr.. Klein Smith. Had. A chance. In. His. Mind to make things right and he took it why. Did he take, the law in his own hands why, did he doctor, the email did, it have anything to do with the way he sees Donald.

Trump's Presidency, you. Know, what it really, doesn't, matter. What. He was thinking. It. Matters, what he did. And. I'm. Glad you found out what he did, I'm. Glad you told the country what he did. Because. I'm hoping that nobody will ever do it again. So. Mr., Horowitz. 17-year. Regularities. That you found. Some. Of them are earth-shattering. Some. Of them should scare the hell hell. Of a hell, out of all of us I, just. Want to end sort of where I began. This is not normal. Don't. Judge the FBI and the, Department of Justice by. These characters. We're. Better than this. Like. Many of you I've worked with the FBI a lot of my time in government, have. A great respect for it. Director. Ray you've got a problem and. For, this hearing to mean anything. We. Got to fix it and. The. Way we fix it is. Listen, to mr. Horowitz and. Get, the director of the FBI in here to try to find out a way to make sure this never happens again to any politician in this country. It's. Trapped a day it could be you're me tomorrow and. Imagine. Ladies and gentlemen, if. They can do this to the candidate, for the President of the United States what could they do to you. So. They Trump, presidency. Will. End in a year or five years I don't know when I hope he gets reelected. But. We can't write this off as. Being. Just, about. One. Man or one event. We've. Got to understand how if the rails, to system guide and, I'll. Leave. With. Some optimism, here I think. Democrats and Republicans. Are. Willing. To make sure this never happens again that if. You open up a counterintelligence. Investigation. On a presidential, campaign in the future, there needs to be more checks and balances, I. Want. You to audit, the FISA process. Mike, Lee and, Senator. Leahy. Are. Probably, the standard bearers, for civil liberties. Cruz. A lot, of people we, all care but these are the two that constantly. Want to make sure that somebody's. Watching those who watch us they're worried about metadata. Well. I may not agree with all of your concerns or all of your solutions. I, respect. The fact that you care I. Hope. You, treat this report, is finding, a lawful, investigation. With a few irregularities. I'm. A pretty hawkish guy. But. If the court doesn't take corrective action, and. Do. Something about being, manipulated. And lied to. You. Will lose my support I. Know. A lot about what's going on out there to hurt us and they're. Real threats, and they're. Real agents, and they're. Really bad actors out there. I'd. Hate to lose the ability of. The FISA Court to operate, at a time probably when we need it the most, but. After your report, I have. Serious, concerns about. Whether the FISA Court. Can. Continue, unless there's fundamental, reform. After. Your report, I think. We need to rewrite the rules of how you start, a counterintelligence, investigation. And the. Checks and balances that, we need. Mr.. Horwitz and for, us to do justice, to the report. We. Have to do more than try to shade this report, one way of the other we. Have to address the underlying problem. Of. A system, in the. Hands of a few bad people can. Do a lot of damage. Thank. You very much.

it should be THE DISHONORED DEMOCRAT COUP DIRECTOR MICHEAL WHORIST

The counter intelligence investigators warned Hillary and foreign efforts were stopped? NO, she was funded by foreign efforts and sold herself to the highest bidder. DiFi was warned and she took the proper action? Hell no, don't tell me she didn't know that chinese guy was working against the US, I'll bet she has been paid handsomely for working for China. The system failed us? Nope, it was weaponized against us, just like the IRS was against conservatives organizing to defeat Obama. Government is rotten to the core. Politicians making deciscions, not for the good of the country but to enrich and empower themselves while they impoverish and enslave the people they are supposed to be serving!

Republicans think the American people are idiots.

they've been fixing the outcome of elections for a long time!!!

With the 17 irregularities when are people going away in handcuffs?! Irregularities is another word lies , omissions are known lies. This is a coup and people need to be hung!

I don’t care what anybody says Lindsey Graham would make an amazing United States president he’s smart he’s honest he cares about the people in the United States and best of all he’s an amazing speaker reminds me of RONALD regan

FISA is criminally flawed, and this agency needs to be shut down permanently, with a new agency that has integrity.

Unbelievable

When a President is being impeached, the media SHOULD BE FORCED to show THE FACTS! To ALLOW CNN, ABC, MSNBC etc etc to LIE & deceive 'the people' is "Election tampering & fraud"

failure of the system because of rotten apples are spreading corruption in the swamp

If they know every move we make I think Frankenstein could have known she had a spy working for her in less than 20 years

Drain the Swamp!!!!!!!!!

This is a speech that should go down in history.

All you have to do is research how much Lindsay Graham hate's President Trump. He Is a traitor!

How old are these idiots running the FBI!! All of these rats have been trying to break Trump since he was elected! From everyone that hates Trump......FBI,CIA, Politicians......all of them!! Trump is one tough man.....Just for all he's been through. I wonder if Seth Rich was also being followed for some reason by his own Dems and killed!!! This Graham is my man!!

This is the kinda stuff that should wake up the Demorats.

Crossfire Hurricane is turning into a category 10.

I am getting pretty good at reading body language and when Clapper or Brennan speak the lies they spew get caught in their throats! Clapper squirms..and they were CIA now at CNN!! How low can they go?

None of this was shown on CNN.

Sen. Lyndsey has done a fantastic job of laying out the honest corrupt events that took place! WE THE PEOPLE NEED JUSTICE IN THIS! THESE PEOPLE NEED TO BE PROSECUTED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Start with this bought off IG Horowitz..put him in prison

Why hasn't Trump brought up corrupt things many of these people have done? Because he's not petty or holding grudges like they do. He could have all these evil scum investigated! Kip Simpsons Channel......all kinds of Democrates being arrested!!

Why aren't raids on these peoples homes and offices being made? Comey, McCabe, Strock etc. Go get em Handcuffs at 3am on National TV.

Because Hillary and Obama had their ASZES ON THE FIRING SQUAD If they DID NOT STOP TRUMP. It goes ALL THE WAY to the Top and ABOVE THEM THERE is a GLOBALIST OCTOPUS That OWNS OUR BAD POLITICIANS. These EVIL SCUMBAGS Attempted a COUP AGAINST WE THE AMERICAN PEOPLE.

Someone needs to show this clip to Juan Williams. He’s in serious denial.

USA Social Business School.

38:39 YESSSSSS!!!

CNN didn't show this, they showed commercials. MSDNC talked over him telling their viewer in realtime what was wrong with what he was saying, despite the fact they had his volume off.

The concept of you wearing a tin foil hat is hilarious-but don't really do it. You may regret it down the road. My two cents.

Why hasn't anybody killed a democrat polictian yet ?

Way to go Mr Graham. The champ!!

Would replacing Horowitz with Rachel Madcow in the hearing have sounded any different?

Everything you need to know about the past three and a half years is right here in BLACK AND WHITE. In spite of media spin.

that finestine looks like a Halloween witch without her pointy hat...js

It wasn't the Russians Lindsay. We all know it was Seth Rich the download speed could not have been met over the internet. It had to be a thumb drive. Now lets talk about what was in them emails.

601 democrats in denial didn't like this video.

Amen!

I’m shocked! Is this really happening in this country or I’m just dreaming? If I don’t see people handcuffed after this America as we know it will cease to exist

THE BEGINNING OF THE END. Senator Lindsay GRAHAM, Chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, starts the deliberations by an impressive charge against the material used on the FISA report. Clearly and factually, showing the bias and the lies, broughted up to the Court in the FISA reconductions, is clearing FBI as a all and, pointing to the heads of the FBI as responsables of the derailing of Justice process. As expected, the DEMS are in the background orchestrating the charges against PRESIDENT TRUMP. The only serious problem at that level, is that the DEMS by manipulations of the JUSTICE process, induced a frenzy of News Outlets. While most of the news succeeded to disgust the electorate, Senator GRAHAM is reanimating the hopes to darkened the President. INTERESTING ENOUGH, the electorate is not impress and the support to President Trump is still very strong. The INTELLIGENCE of the electorate is reading threw the process that a start of inquiries on assumptions and lies, is not to produce good results. MORE OVER and, Senator GRAHAM is right, the DEMS made the demonstrations on how easy it is to fool the COURT system. It's like a suspense film, where the conviction peaces have disappeared. Fortunately, the limitations of Horowitz (IG) as to FISA abuses, are recuperated by AG BARR and DURHAM in their authority to go deeper. Already, the reactions of DURHAM inquieries to the HOROWTZ report, give us indications that there has been criminal activities that they will expose. The SENATE, up to now, is doing its job carefully but, Senators GRASSLEY and Mc CONNELL, manifested a certain interest to cut short the deliberations for political reasonnings has to the case loads of the Senate and the next election (2020). In other words, the legitimate concerns of President Trump and of the Republicans at the Congress deliberations, is on the verge to happen again at the SENATE level, witnesses fitted to the cause of DEMS. THAT'S OF BAD OMEN ! In that respect, Senators FEINSTEIN and LEHAY, taking the baton of SCHIFFTY and NADLER, are supposed to flex their muscles to bias again the SENATE works. That would be a very dangerous precedent for the SENATE, putting them on the wrong side of History for expediencies. We have to keep in mind that the SENATE and the Chief JUSTICE ROBERTS are the last line of defence to the LAW and the CONSTITUTION. If they failed on the abscence of fairness as to the process, BYE BYE AMERICA, see you in HELL. This time, HELL will be for all americans, by a clear call of the desappearing of JUSTICE principles and the introduction of the FREE FOR ALL. Maybe it would be for the best in the reassertion of order necessity ?! VOTE PEOPLE, VOTE, you are call to choose your own future, FREEDOM or SLAVERY, again and again. Gerry

I'm surprised Pelosi didn't say" you have to impeach him first then read the report".

Watch out! You got a Chinese spy on your left!

This is business as usual they just got caught this time

@22:35 Nope. Sorry Lindsey. Kilnton/Podesta etc e-mails were not hacked by the Russians. Still no justice for Seth Rich or Julian Assange either for that matter.

Dispicible DemonRATS!

ALL showboating...Bill Bar and Durham can do absolutely nothing...The ONLY crime that they can prove is the tampering of the FISA document by changing carter page from U.S. Asset to Russian Spy...Everyone else no matter how criminal they are even in their e-mails...will be completely immune to prosecution, protected by POLICIES... calling it probable cause after the fact of the crime tampered document. Exactly like a cop saying "I feared for my life" or "I smell something in your car"...and from that point justifies ANYTHING they do thereafter relentlessly protected by policies...The upper corrupt echelon might be fired at best...if they haven't been already... protected by POLICIES...It is policies that have completely undermined the constitution to its bumper sticker state...But Hillary on the other hand is possible to indict...but she is poised and waiting for Bar and Durham's flinch of investigating her then she will Dive into the 2020 election as the front runner for election law protection...which seems to show is the only place one is above the law... Except for Trump that is....

(democrats) DO NOT CARE WHAT WE KNOW ,BELIEVE, HEAR OR THINK ! They are not sufferable Americans and act like communist drones. This is a coup that started in 2016 and a tactic, that even Mussolini would be proud of. The basic plan of action, for all (democrats) involved, is Deny , fabricate, occupy and disrupt ! In glad Graham has broken all of this down, from a real American Democrat perspective ,with facts. This is a runaway train fixing to derail !! IF SOMETHING ISNT DONE TO HOLD EVERY POLITICIAN ACCOUNTABLE , WE WILL LOSE THIS GREAT NATION AND A WAR FOR REVOLUTION WILL ,SURELY FOLLOW !

Thank God for Trump!!

Thank god I'm an Atheist!

Wray has never made a statement that reassured me he was the man for the job. He has never outlined a strategy for truly restoring the good name of the FBI, and he is always playing defense instead of showing strong leadership. Next.

How corrupt the swamp is with all the rotten republican decaying in it .

I swear Graham was trying to hold back laughter. As I was watching this for the second time, I couldn't help but laugh. The democrats are currupt. Lucky for is they are incompetent and left a trail a mile wide.

Oh poor poor Lisa, such a victim of circumstances, mean people and.....tissue? You Jackwagon. Fry.

Obama is in this up to his Dumbo ears.

Complete exoneration.

At some point, people watching Fox have to say say "Wait, how can the Dems be crooked, the FBI be crooked, CIA be crooked, Mainstream media, some of Fox News, but Trump and Cohen and Flynn and Roger stone are all innocent?" I know they are saying its a witch hunt but, there has to be a point you say maybe he did do something wrong. Especially when he is on TV telling us.

I'd say that makes a case for collusion and foreign interference; between the British and the DNC, for the purpose of interfering in an election. Why are we not sanctioning the UK or treating them like an enemy nation, for this? Oh, that's right, because they worked with the Democrats to do it to Republicans. This is proof positive that we need to stop the clock on the time for talking, and start preparing for what really needs to happen to keep this from ever happening again. That side has proven they don't tell the truth, and if they want to burn you, they'll lie, cheat and steal to do so. The only just punishment for this is to remove ALL Democrats from power, and financially punish the DNC with lawsuits and fines. Otherwise, the conflict they (Democrats) will start will be the worst this world has ever seen, and all because one "party" doesn't get it's way whenever it wants it.

If we cannot see the contempt for American voting rights, maybe we deserve to be subjugated by these criminals.

Graham better get his Schiff together and pick sides. We will forgive, him.

Scared for our organization... Which is organized crime..

Very well told! EVERY AMERICAN CITIZEN needs to watch this! I don’t normally share things on FB or in fact go on FB much in the past 6 months but I just shared it on my wall because of the lack of coverage in the fake news.

Comey is Putin's asset in interfering USA election in 2016. The evidence is obvious

Feinstein is a deep state Alinskyite snake, with a healthy portion of socialism on the side.

A few bad people? Come on now. We the people deserve justice for All involved is this treasonous attack on our country. It goes far beyond just an attack on one man ( Trump). This is about treasonous acts on our government, by our government.

Thank you Sen. Lindsey Graham ! I only wish this could have been done a few days earlier but because of the shenanigans going on it was impossible - But Great job!

Hey Lindsey you are doing a great job of explaining what actually happened but the bad actors are not listening.. or if they are... they know all they need to do is remain quiet or deny, deny, deny and nothing will be done ..then they can just go back to business as usual.. blaming Trump ,the republicans, conservatives or anyone that supports the President as the bad guys. We all need to make sure the Dems do not get back into office this next election. OUR DEMOCRACY DEPENDS UPON IT!

This is why every president should fire all the old staffs as soon as possible

Make America GREAT AGAIN lock Trump and friends up.

McTurtle will attempt to protect the RINOS in the Swamp.

Camera standpoint showes different background people ...cgi ?

good job

Manipulating and lying ? What joke Lindsay bad actors ? Mfr.

This is supposed to be about not letting any president future or present to be a rogue president.

Lindsey Grahm has given his life to his country. So proud of you

Bravo. Well said Mr Graham.

Man Lindsay is a true defense attorney all the republicans have turned into defense attorneys they are no longer working for the American people they are now working for and defending the president this isn't about what Donald is doing it's about not getting away with lying cheating and stealing.

More intrigue than in any Hollywood movie. Truth is coming out, what a relief.

Talk, Talk, Talk.. Loads of Proof...These criminals will just keep repeating thier crimes cause they will never face True Justice...VERY SAD AND DANGEROUS FOR AMERICA! Hey, but dont you dare as a average American come even close to doing what these top levels actors have done...as you surely will be locked away for life! Again: .VERY SAD AND DANGEROUS FOR AMERICA!

Republicans 2019: FBI and DOJ bias against Trump and yet... Trump 2016: praises FBI and DOJ for opening the Hillary Email scandal. Awwww.... isnt that a good turn of events. Hilarious.

first time i have heard anyone, ask why did the Obama admin" not inform and give all details to the Trump admin's about all this, instead of just blaming him for everything the DEM's, DID and left open for others to do wrong, not the President ! wake up you woke people !

I love how all of the Democrats are completely disinterested in what Graham has to say. They're either complicit because of feelings or they know already knew what he was going to say because they're in on it. This is all good and well but unless there are prosecutions this is all for nothing.

This can and will happen again if another Democrat ever gets into the White House.

The way we fix it is to prosecute!! No prosecution, no change!

Wray and Horowitz are working for Obama and Clinton! We all need to make sure the Dems do not get back into office this next election. OUR DEMOCRACY DEPENDS UPON IT!

Could the creepy HC lawyer sitting behind Feinstein be any more annoying? What's she looking at at 27:16?

I WANT THAT MAN FOR MY PRESIDENT IN 2024..AMERICA NEEDS REAL PRESIDENTS LIKE MR LINDSEY GRAHAM.....A REAL AMERICAN...FOR THE PEOPLE

Great opening statement Senator Graham! You laid it out beautifully!

Justice for Seth rich

Senator Graham earnrd his salary today.Great job and I know true Americans appreciate your effort.

38:00 LG “the way we fix this is listen to Mr. Horowitz.” HUH? He concluded no fraud. He should be held accountable. He pulled a Comey Cover. We see the smoke screens!

25:54--Totally burns James Bond.

It is totally terrifying how power and control can be seized before anyone is aware it is happening. A major reason to thank God for putting President Trump in the White Office. All the bad acts would remain hidden. America would be much different now. I believe you!

The NWO shills are there attempting to debunk Factual tweets, comments etc, with faith based opinions, the FBIs systems cant be corrupted by workers - *because the FBi systems cant be corrupted by the workers* , they even stick to the faith based opinions, *even when the factual evidence comprised of only facts, shows the the FBI systems/fisa was corrupted by FBI workers* *Conclusion* To peddle faith based opinions to counter facts - is the only avenue they have left. * *We see these faith based opinon attempting to debunk real facts all the time , with the shills and thought police all over the internet* *Then we also see the same NWO shills actually knowing distinctions between facts and opinions*- So when these people use faith based opinions in conjunction with other things mentioned in intelligence reports , this shows *intent of deceptions and cover ups, disinformation operations* *It would be mathematically impossible to think there stupid faith based opinion arguments were mistakes, when all the facts are laid out and framed in the 100 % correct contexts* *We can even predict, when they will be useing faith based opinions - over facts* - Predict with 90% + accuracy , rising to 100% accuracy in certain contexts.

So when do we start putting them in prison????

clearly treason they should be all lined up on a fucken brick wall and SHOT.

22:00 LG propagates the Russia Hoax by crying it was the Russians who hacked he DNC. This is the big Lie. He knows it’s not true. This is why we know he is part of the problem. Too bad. Good Job laying out the case but notice the conclusion: a few bad apples- mid-level. Then he talks about Steele but omits Clinton’s role. Is he not aware? I think not.

The FBI is so competent Diana feinstein had a spy working for her for 20 years, then for some reason they found out and told Feinelsteiner that she had a spy working for her, then the spy and the story went away like it never existed. in other words - The chinese spy was covered up for 20 years because Elements in the FBI and other government agencies/ institutions/churches have been working with the chinese in a global shadow government otherwise known aas the deep state /NWO. Think its time they obliterate these NWO gangsters

When Senator Graham said that he didn't want this sort of thing (leftists in the system working against a presidential candidate and then a sitting president) to happen again, does he believe that leftists are principled enough to agree with him?

2016 open investigation

I remember when this douchebag said Trump would never be president

WHO is the idiot now strozk

Harry Reid was initially all over the news saying that he would give Trump fake CIA Intel. Sen. Harry Reid: Give Trump fake CIA intel briefings. See following - YouTube Jul 28, 2016 · Harry Reid told CNN's Manu Raju that the CIA should give Donald Trump fake intel briefings and that he "won't know the difference." ... Well now we REALLY can't trust anything the CIA says

Awesome expose by Senator Graham.

take down any political hack that bolstered the fake news media that brought us here Senator!

If this doesn’t expose the dark depths of the evil in our government then those who refuse to see deserve the WRATH that’s coming

Lol Graham really thinks he can get the media to stop their propaganda with facts.

God help us all

Awesomeness

I disagree with Graham on the “investigation” coming from a legitimate concern over Russia interference in the Trump campaign. If they had legitimately been concerned they would have briefed Trump. They have briefed everyone else ...Feinstein even got a pass. This was a smear campaign from it’s inception. Hillary was a horrible candidate and needed an “insurance policy” ...their words. Gloves need to come off ... this is bigger than Trump. THIS IS ABOUT AMERICAN RULE OF LAW and TRUST.

Why can't that Feinstien aid sit still and shut up that's sitting behind them?

Since McCain died or was killed, the real Graham has showed up. So far so good with him and I believe the best is yet to come....The Globalist scheme is failing...Soros is on the ropes....WWG1WGA

wow

Well done Mr. Graham. We need to dismantle the deep State because it exists, it is VERY alive and well, and it is VERY dangerous for our freedom at it's very core. Our very Constitutional Republic is at stake here. Let's get it together here people!!! Tine to get to work!!!

Has everyone noticed... both parties are passing items underneath the surface while playing this charade... be careful- both parties stealing from America

Who is the (creepy looking) guy taking notes, sitting behind Lindsey?

Triump time will come and go.

The worlds most dumbest crooks. They left finger prints everywhere.

Mr Wray....please wake up and do the right thing for this Nation.....the world is Watching....

That female (I think) sitting behind him in the grey suit was so distracting...she couldn't sit still ,very antsy, maybe too much coffee?

I'll say it again: leftists have never, will never, be held accountable for their crimes in America.

Why not talk about facts that have to do with the actual impeachment: 1) Trump had the call, transcript and testimonies all align with each other (fact) 2) Trump conditioned white house visit and military aid on Ukraine announcing publicly investigations into his domestic political rival (fact) 3) Trump insisted on this favor THE NEXT DAY after Mueller report, even Mueller did not believe Trump would intentionally ask for foreign interference, he was wrong (fact) 4) Trump will continue to meddle in 2020 elections and lie, steal and cheat also going forward, if not impeached IMMEDIATELY and removed from office (fact) 5) Which is even worse is GOP's unwillingness to discuss these facts and to stonewall testimonies and evidence should be punished, because this is putting the party over the country and the constitution, which is against the oath that GOP members took and they should know better.

A wonderful magnificent and knowledgeable take from Lindsay! My opinion of him continues to go up. Thank Yah we have him in the Senate!!!

In my opinion Lindsay Graham is just as corrupt!

CNN wouldn't air this live. Wonder why.....

Clowns..lions..tigers..elephants ponies.....more clowns......more tigers..

No one would believe that a low level lawyer in the FBI would initiate on his own ("like or dislike of Trump") the falsification of a document for a FISA warrant.

It's so hard to believe that senior officers of the FBI could be caught red handed expressing such political bias against the subject of their investigation. Is simply being fired even sufficient punishment? Just as hard to believe is an IG report which confidently declares not finding any political bias having taken place when it's plain for all to see and hear from text messages. Obviously the guilty parties were not a part of the IG investigation since they no longer work for the FBI which means the report is standing without legs.

Listening to Lyndsey and knowing he is only up there acting like he's on the side of justice, it makes me wonder how many of our politicians knowingly have Chinese spy's working for them? Sounds like Graham is trying to make it so that if spies are discovered, the politicians themselves will never be investigated. Is the Chinese government paying you to harbor spies too Lyndsey? This is how Lyndsey will turn these Deep State crimes into positive outcomes for the criminals in DC. It also sounds like Page, Strzok, and McCabe are the ones who will be hung out to dry. The rest will be protected.

They are all corrupt.

CNN minions of the "deep state" did not show this !!! Poooor and very sad CNN .

Very well said, Senator. It is about time some truth was told.

Amazing! And no one watching any channel but Fox saw it

SETH RICH SETH RICH SETH RICH SETH RICH RUSSIA SMUSSIA

Is Trump draining the swamp, or just pissin' it off real good for the next democrat president to get some major payback?...

Yes System failed to send to jail all Russian collaborators.

Democrats should consider themselves fully 'scathed'? When they're actually 100% UNSCATHED...!!! Anybody buying the bs FOX and the RINOS are sellin'?

Nice one Lindsey

Why does Graham have such a hard time reading the transcript without stuttering?

As a Bartender for years, I'd cut Lindsey off.What he says is All TRUE, just slurry. Liquid Courage. He was deep state B4 McCain Died.

Only seen these levels understand is cover up their tracks, the devil hates truth me he's God we know these liberals are full of the devil

People do not change and the laws the framers put in place are as valid and important today as when they were put in place.

Go Lindsay Graham.

Great summation

lindsy here was working with ukraine a couple years ago

We wish trump could stop the app ,lies that lame people like. It's too many people being lied to,fooled. Trick to be so stupid.

He's such a poser. Clips all over of him trashing Trump, but he acts appalled that other humans may share his disdain for mr. orange.

What happens now? Indict and prosecute ALL involved to the absolute fullest extent of the law. I don't care what side of the fence people are on. There can be NO MORE of this happening in our highest government agencies. This is illegal, wrong. How would YOU feel if this was you or someone you love that was treated this way. We cannot have this ever happen again. And it will unless these people are prosecuted! They better put them in prison or face the wrath of an entire nation, one like they have NEVER seen before in this country.

Thanks very much Lindsey, now it is time to take them down and make them pay for a totally biased investigation based on mislead FISA process.

Liberals are too stupid to understand any of this.

Look at the Demonrats next to Sen. Graham... nobody raise their eyes from their desk! They know they are guilty, but their conscience is completely seared!

This is after three years worth of investigation on MY PRESIDENT TRUMP! Now let’s see who’s in trouble at the first truth that comes Comey and the boys of the FBI. OH BY THE WAY OBUMERS FBI! Stand by more to come gots lot worthless SOBs up there. THIS IS THE PART I LOVE! Hold on you know there won’t be one shameful enough to chose suicide!

I think everyone in comments should send this to cnn Twitter page asap and share with anyone else this will go down as legendary

Wow! Our FBI is corrupt beyond belief! At least these FBI agents. It is a shame they have disgraced themselves amd the entire agency in the process. I bet Carter is relieved to finally get the truth out and be vindicated. Unbelievable they changed the CIA email. Liars and criminals...Page, Strauk...and all of them involved. Prosecute them!! Voting Trump 2020!

Im just glad Graham found a pair after McCain died...

Dems said Graham had a brainsnatch. NO, He just knew the truth ahead of when we were told. He is NOT under the thumb of Trump he just knows Trump was right he is a victim of illegal surveillance by the FBI. This is big. Forget a stupid little phonecall look at the abuse of power at the FBI! And obstruction of justice at the FBI. Funny they try to impeach Trump over what very clearly the Dems did and Obama did and the FBI under Obama did. I dont know what they hope of by doing this maybe it worked in the past but it is not anymore. Alinskys method is failing here it was overused too many times. Blaming somebody with the crimes you committed works only a few times.

"A counterintelligence investigation is not a criminal investigation". - Nope, the real crime is the producer not substituting the word 'counterintelligence' for the words 'enemy intel' in order to be politically correct while being politically 'counterintelligent'. I sure hope RT's Russian is better than Fox's fkn American. Oh, not American-English because that would suggest a linguistic basis and not a word union based purely on a made-up hybrid law concerning a make-it-up-as-you-go-along Constitution/Government/Language/Nation.

Don't panic, dear Trans-Atlantic gun-toting cousins. You can justify general population gun ownership when you justify anything without looking, well, like you look. Oh, sugar, I nearly forgot. Hide and go seek? Thanks for inserting the word 'go' in there. I nearly made the mistake of hiding then actually seeking why in the fk I was counting to ten (or don't tell me now, they use metric in that small island you call 'not USA' (namely mainland Europe to non-US tribes like us), thus necessitating constant hot-air emissions to drown out the sound of 10 million homeless, 40 million healthcare-free citizens and only God knows how many undocumented immigrants flooding through that gaping chasm called 'one border between the US and the guys with the big drug problem due South who just can't seem to (want to) stop shipping harmful narcotics your way despite the Great Wall of (well) national narcissism. On the bright side, you can blame Trump. The punchline to a joke which, if it were actually funny, would be a useful irony. Irony, no that's not the product of a country beside Iraq, but sarcasm as you well know, is the name of a geographical void created over many billions of years (fact) in a valley betwixed and between two 'non-US' mountain villages called France and Germany.

Great speakers, horrible congressmen

BRAVO BRAVO BRAVO - FANTASTICALLY CLEAR THINKING!!!! BRAVO, GRAHAM.

They are not a flock of sheep who can be herded by dogs. You seem to give their possible humanity too much credit. This is not intended to be a manhunt, but an extermination of pests.

Can. They fixes. These. Problems

It comes down to this buddy.... If these people cannot police themselves they have no right to police the rest of us. Cannot get more down to earth common sense than that Sen. Graham. If the Deep State wants to waste time and resources in what amounts to a treasonous attempt to distract everyone and try to force an agenda THEY want... and doing so to the point its putting us all in danger with the chaos and distraction... and basically an overthrow of the elected Government.. They all need to GO, and be tracked down in some kind of Maccarthyesk type witch hunt by a new special agency Sen. Graham.

What is going on is the fruit of the poisonous tree. The Democratic Party is fairly broke and have been so since the last Obama election. So apart from Hillary Clinton paying their way in 2016, does that tell you why they want to impeach Trump? Hillary was behind all of this from the getgo, can anyone honestly think her hands are not in it or even, behind it all, calling all the shots? Wouldn't it be far more interesting to look where her money is going these days? Who is the poisonous tree? What role is Obama playing, and are his hands still in it too? If you are waiting for Nancy Pelosi to come clean, she is the number one errand boy.

Worth every moment to hear, wow, Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Sen. Lindsey Graham just aired all the dirty laundry from the swamp.

CNN did not air this because it goes against their agenda and narrative. CNN 's agenda is to shape public option,.... that opinion is opposite of what conservatives think and believe.

Put them in prison unite this Country now..only way is to show people no more! Demacrats that are part of this seditation prison..Pelosi and Schiff Hillary Obama and all involved end this now

Graham is all mouth and no muscle. He wants to sweep it all aside and move on. These things are too serious to go unpunished.

hope you link the gurgle link to the corruption in the 16 elections... filthy

I just love Sen Graham always passionate, glad Sen Feinstein sitting next to him must be painful to listen hahaha.

Seize the emails!!

Everyone one of you DO have foreign agents or are one through the British Acreddited Registry (BAR) are you registered as Foreign Agents or filed a FSIA?

I know I’m being targeted for my sharing the truth about our courts. But people need to be educated. And like yesterday. Our education is a system for poisoning minds and consent to poison our bodies. The academia is trying to say we should only live to 38 if we didn’t have pharmacopeia pills making us live longer which is just another communist lie. Problem action solution technique. People lived to 100 if they made it through childhood as far back as can remember. Science in academia is an abomination to truth along with our statutory legal system and our bankrupt private banking system that has plunged us in the deepest debt ever imagined on the Earth! God please inform all my brothers and sisters and stop these pastors from supporting this system of enslavement but have them teach truth of what we are living in now. Please Yahuah

I hate to say this! But the president has arrest no one not even the People that have tried to assassinate him therefore I Predict that No Arrest will take Place! I hope and Pray that I am Wrong!.

Graham just barely broke the surface of that. There’s so much more truth to tell the public so things can get better. Until then it’s pointless. Sad thing is Christopher Steele has the right idea about a voting reform for only private citizens able to run for office. No career politicians. Trumps own news and educational channel on history and TRUE LAW. We have to get rid of the nobility in our courts and have equal law. No more statutory code criminals. Only violent and property crime

What we experience as "the mainstream media" is Operation Mockingbird. That's the real Matrix.

The law is to busy filling prisons with nonviolent commerce code breakers instead of govern. We are being pushed to clash with whoever doesn’t agree with another’s views. It’s totally being manipulated by Albert Pike Kabbalist members

Until the enemy's of the state are assassinated nothing will change

My fellow Americans., I would seriously prepare!!!! if the coup takes place, there will be civil unrest and it will be serious... from the banking cartel to the CIA to the industrial-military complex write down to the darkest of the deep state we live in a corrupt reality and it's a beast and it's fed by gain,vanity, lust and Power and you're seeing it..... prepare greatly. Senator Graham you got guts!!!

Some people failed!  Which is a better explanation on what Trump did?  What would a 'reasonable man' think?  Trump did nothing wrong! Follow the threads and you will see that the democrats are lying once again. All they have is here say---?Trump turned in the recorded call, people did not understand what he was saying as they did not hear the other said .And the topper is Ukraine's current president  said that nothing was wrong with the phone call.  even the Ukraine's current president said there was nothing wrong with the call. Everything President Trump said t he dems twisted it to make it sound that he was doing wrong.  same old thing the dems been saying, lying, taking what Trump said  taking everything out of context and if Trump is thinking only of himself  he sure has shown otherwise.

And so did Graham.. the IG said the predicate for the investigation was lawful. He said the Steele Dossier was NOT the predicate for the investigation. It was the predicate ONLY for the FISA warrant to surveil Carter Page. Don't let ppl fool you.

Is that Bruce Jenner behind him???

GOOD JOB!!!!

Grassley needs to step up to the plate .

A system designed by geniuses and being run by evil idiots.

What is that ugly thing behind Lindsey ?

Wow, just WOW!!! Now this is an impeachable/prison time conversation!!!! Get a clue Democrats! Your heads are up your asses, wayyyy upppppp there!

It took a while for that dude sitting behind Graham's left shoulder to settle down.

Russia hoax. Yeah Lindsay you do have foreign lobbyists in administration. They're zionists.

One added comment, Sen. Graham shows anger because I think he has been shown that he has been played by liars in the past. I support Senator Graham !!! Thank you for standing up for the American people element of justice and supporting the Bill of Rights. Go Senator Graham !!!

Democrats in a circular fireing squad.

Sooo many people in power didn't and don't want President Trump is because they know their corruption is going to be revealed by President Trump and his administration. They have to take the President down so they can continue in their corruption.....on and on and on to steal from the hard working American people while they think we the people are LOWER than them. They are disgusting !!!

CNN etc. all cut away when Graham made his opening statement!!!! Then came back to broadcast anything the Dems said that pushed their narrative. I'd like to say I was surprised.... but I wasn't.

Very fine speech Mr. Graham.

Is Kevin Clinesmith dead or in prison, or is he Democrat?
