Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., blames the Obama administration for having "politicized" the Department of Justice and FBI — and supports President Donald Trump's reported intent to declassify documents related to ex-campaign adviser Carter Page and DOJ official Bruce Ohr.

In a pair of tweets Tuesday, Graham linked to The Daily Caller report on Trump's expected move, and lashed out at former President Barack Obama's administration.

"I completely support House Republican efforts to have President Trump declassify the FISA warrant applications, the Bruce Ohr/Chris Steele interactions, and all other relevant information regarding allegations of corruption in the DOJ & FBI," Graham tweeted.

He followed up with a second tweet declaring: "It is increasingly clear it was the Obama administration who politicized the DOJ/FBI, not the Trump administration."

The president's allies have been clamoring for the release of documents they say will prove anti-Trump bias at the Justice Department.

"After two years of investigations and accusations from both sides of the aisle about what documents indicate, it is past time for documents to be declassified and let the American people decide for themselves if DOJ and FBI acted properly," House Freedom Caucus head Rep. Mark Meadows, R-N.C., told Axios on Sunday.

Both Page and Ohr have been in the spotlight: Page was at the center of a controversial GOP memo made public last year that alleged surveillance abuses at the DOJ, while Ohr has come under attack because his wife worked for the firm that funded a controversial dossier on Trump compiled by an ex-British spy.
