Lindsey Graham gave a quick interview to CNN’s Manu Raju about Attorney General William Barr’s statements about spying on the Trump campaign by the Obama administration. It seems Lindsey Graham may believe the Obama administration may have illegally spied on the Trump campaign.
Graham stated, “Clearly the foreign intelligence surveillance act was used against the Trump campaign,” said Graham to CNN’s Manu Raju.
Graham continued, “That’s a form of surveillance,” he explained. “It is, surveillance is fine, but it’s legal, it’s authorized. Counter-intelligence investigation was opened up against the Trump campaign. That by its nature, surveillance is fine.”
“That’s OK if it was legal,” Graham noted.
Graham established, “I think what Mr. Barr is saying is that this didn’t happen in the Clinton campaign, there was no counterintelligence investigation I know of against the Clinton campaign there was no FISA warrants opened up against her people. The question is why did the government open up a counterintelligence investigation into the Trump campaign, and was the FISA warrant legit?”
Graham concluded, “And those are issues that we need to find out about because the government did focus on the Trump campaign.”
