Sen. Graham: Comey Will 'Testify in the Light of Day'

By    |   Wednesday, 03 April 2019 08:33 AM EDT

Former FBI Director James Comey will be brought back to Capitol Hill to testify about the origins of the investigation into Russia and President Donald Trump's campaign, and he'll "get to testify in the light of day," Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham promised Tuesday.

“Millions of Americans believe that the top level of the Department of Justice and the FBI, they wanted [Hillary] Clinton to win and Trump to lose," the South Carolina Republican told Fox News' Sean Hannity. "They manipulated the law to let her off, manipulated the facts and the law to go after Trump and that’s a big deal to a lot of people."

Graham said he'll ask Comey about the Christopher Steele dossier, including about whether it has ever been verified and if it was the chief reason for a FISA warrant against former Trump aide Carter Page. He said he also wants to know why Trump wasn't told that there had been a counterintelligence investigation opened against his campaign.

"At the end of the day, how could you write that Clinton did nothing wrong even before you interviewed her, and why did you interview her with two people in the room -- her aides -- and not under oath?" Graham said he'll also ask. "Most people don’t get that treatment."

However, Graham said it's not his job, as committee chairman, to determine if there were any crimes committed, but rather to provide oversight of the executive branch.

Graham also repeated his belief that a special prosecutor is needed to investigate the people involved in the Trump probe.
