Maria Bartiromo Presses Lindsey Graham on Whether He'll Honor His Promise to Subpoena FBI and IC Officials Behind RussiaGate;
Miss Lindsey Hedges

He's a deep state operative tricking conservatives into thinking there's a real investigation into the deep state.

Following the release of documents related to the Michael Flynn case, Bartiromo reminded Graham on Sunday that he has repeatedly assured her that the Senate Judiciary Committee would seek testimony from current and former Justice Department and FBI officials as she committed to reporting on a "cabal" that allegedly tried to undermine President Trump. She asserted that Graham has yet to make good on his promises, to which the senator stressed that he doesn't want to interfere in the Justice Department's criminal inquiry of the matter.


[Bartiromo[ went over instances dating back more than a year in which she said Graham vowed to call and subpoena witnesses, -- such as former FBI Director James Comey, former FBI agent Peter Strzok, former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, and former Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein -- promised a "deep dive" into alleged surveillance abuse, and pledged to put a stop to any future misconduct.

"You are the only one with subpoena power right now in the Republican Party," Bartiromo said, adding, "We need you to call these individuals down to testify as witnesses. People want you to move on this, senator. Are you going to do it?"

Graham responded in the affirmative but couched that assurance by saying timing is a factor.

"Yes, but I have told you, and I will tell you again, I'm not going to interfere in an ongoing criminal matter," he said. "This is a rule of law nation. I'm a politician. My goal is to write a report of how it got off the rails."

The Senate Judiciary Committee chairman further promised he will carry out his oversight role the "right" way.

Oh, he'll posture like a Maori warrior on Fox and Friends, though.
