Sen. Graham: DOJ Probe of Trump Campaign 'Corrupt at the Core'

Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., ripped the Department of Justice for starting the investigation into the Trump campaign — “corrupt at the core”— under the direction of DOJ No. 4 Bruce Ohr, whose wife worked for Fusion GPS and “was at least unethical.”

“Here’s what I would tell the American people — both campaigns were investigated by the FBI and the Department of Justice in 2016 — when it came to the Clinton campaign, she got a pass,” Graham told “Fox News Sunday.” “The criminal investigation of the Clinton campaign was a joke. When it came to the Trump campaign, it was corrupt, it was biased, and I think unethical.

“Mr. Ohr should not have had any role investigating the Trump campaign because his wife worked at Fusion GPS.”

Ohr’s wife’s company was hired by the Democratic National Committee and the Clinton campaign to find dirt on Trump, hiring Christopher Steele, a former British agent who went to Russia to gather “a dossier, which I think is a bunch of political garbage,” Graham said.

Graham pointed to a DOJ political double standard with then-candidate Trump and Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., who fired a potential Chinese spy after being alerted by the DOJ.

“When it came time to, they never did the same for Trump,” Graham said. “These investigations against Trump were corrupt at the core. They gave Clinton a pass.

“Bruce Ohr was at least unethical. We need a special counsel to look at all things Department of Justice and FBI when it came to the Trump investigation, particularly the counterintelligence investigation.”
