Senator Lindsey Graham says we need a second special counsel to investigate abuses of power at the FBI and Justice Department.
During an interview on Friday, Graham said he likes the FBI and the Department of Justice, but ‘somebody needs to watch the watchers.’
The South Carolina senator has raised concerns in the past about political bias at the FBI and DOJ, but said that the issues pre-date the Mueller probe and the Russia investigation should still continue.
“Let the legal system deal with the Russia investigation. I want Mr. Mueller to do his job without political interference,” said Graham. “I’ve seen no evidence of collusion between Trump and the Russians but we need to find out what actually happened.”
Senator Graham had previously called for a second special counsel investigation when the senate began examining the Steele Dossier and the FISA applications.
