Senator Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) outlines several Obama-era scandals the Senate Judiciary Committee will probe now that he’s chairman.
The South Carolina republican said Monday the committee will investigate former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s private use of a private email server, and alleged abuse of the FISA Court by top Obama officials.
His announcement stirred dismay and anxiety among democrats. Senator Dick Durbin (D-Ill.) accused Graham of endorsing conspiracy theories, while fellow democrat Senator Sheldon Whitehouse (D-R.I.) called the probes a “political stunt.”
Graham responded saying looking into the issues are necessary to see the full picture of what happened during the 2016 presidential campaign.
