Sen. Lindsey Graham says Donald Trump "got it right" in calling for a special prosecutor to investigate Hillary Clinton's use of a private email server during her time as secretary of state.

The South Carolina Republican — who launched an unsuccessful bid for president and was a vocal critic of Trump throughout the GOP primaries — said the Justice Department can't be relied upon to do the job.

"I think Mr. Trump's got it right when he's calling for somebody outside the Justice Department to look into this matter," Graham, a member of the Judiciary Committee, tells Fox News

"If you're waiting on this Justice Department to hold anybody in the Obama-Clinton world accountable, you'll die of old age."

Graham added Thursday that Clinton's statements about her email setup while serving as secretary of State have "fallen," The Hill reports.

"She said she turned over everything that was work-related but there's thousands of work-related e-mails that have not been turned over. It's time for a special prosecutor to investigate this matter," he said in a statement, The Hill reports.

State Department lawyers also confirmed this week that the FBI uncovered almost 15,000 documents sent directly to or from Clinton that were previously undisclosed.
