Graham: The FBI was a ‘political operation’ in 2016

Sen. Lindsay Graham (R-SC) just declassified some game-changing documents on Sunday that expose the grossly partisan behavior of the FBI during the 2016 presidential campaign. 

Graham described to Fox News’ Maria Bartiromo on “Sunday Morning Futures” the favor that “the seventh floor” of the FBI — the FBI leadership — showed Clinton back in 2015.

The FBI discovered that a foreign government was trying to influence then-Democrat nominee Hillary Clinton’s campaign with lobbying and millions of dollars, so they warned the Clinton campaign of the foreign interference in a “defensive” briefing. They did not apply for a FISA warrant to investigate foreign interference.

Graham explained:

The FBI finds out about a plot by a foreign government to lobby her campaign and funnel millions of dollars into the Clinton campaign illegally. They want a FISA warrant against a Clinton operative who is connected to the foreign government. What happens? The FBI seventh floor says we’re not going to let you get a warrant. And to you defensively, brief the Clinton campaign.”

The treatment of Candidate Trump, as is well-known now, was very different — less friendly, and much more adversarial.

The FBI did not provide the Trump campaign with any “defensive” briefing when they suspected foreign interference. Instead, they used it as an excuse to begin a counter-intelligence investigation called Crossfire Hurricane to investigate the Trump campaign. They targeted former Trump aide Carter Page and applied for FISA warrants so that they could “legally spy” on the Trump campaign. After Trump took office, FBI leadership sent FBI agents to the White House to mislead General Michael Flynn and entrap him.

Commenting on the FBI’s tactics, Graham said:

The FBI did the right thing by briefing Clinton and failed to do the right thing by never specifically briefing President Trump about their concerns.

In the interview, Graham stressed that “the seventh floor,” e.g. James Comey, Andrew McCabe, and Peter Strzok, was acting in a partisan or even a criminal manner:

 The seventh floor at the FBI was a political operation in the 2016 campaign and people in that seventh floor need to be fired and/or go to jail.

The Obama administration, the FBI, Congress, and the mainstream media worked together to attack a candidate they didn’t like and then a duly-elected president. They destabilized our country, and they compromised what should be the premier intelligence community in the world. They show no remorse, and they continue to maintain their narrative that President Trump is the criminal, but document after document reveals them as the real criminals.

This should be all over the news and it won’t because of the corrupt media. Who would have ever thought that so many corrupt criminals would infiltrate our government. To think this has been going on for years, none of them should be given any thing but all that they deserve. No breaks, no lessor sentences nothing. Treason stinks, play the game pay the price. !

The News Media has been corrupt and morally bankrupt for more than a CENTURY! Around 1930 the Hearst Family who owned a major news outlet was asked about how they feel about the honesty of the New Media. They responded that if the real truth was ever reported, THERE WOULD BE RIOTS IN EVERY MAJOR U.S, City the very next day to include Washington DC.

OBAMAnation has done more treasonous acts than anyone. Shadowing President Trump and I believe the 30 plus groups he has across the country to help him take down Trump are no more than BLM and Antifa. He said he would call them forth when he was ready to do it. He always wanted to use Marshall Law. Even more he wants Sharia Law in America. He wants a Caliphate system in the US like Iran and Turkey has. He needs to be brought up on charges of openly threatening the President. HIGH TREASON DESERVING TO DANCE ON THE END OF A ROPE OR STANDING IN FRONT OF A FIRING SQUAD.

However let’s not forget George Sorros. Enemy #1 in Hungary. Antifa et all are funded and directed by him. His goal is to bring us down.
Obama has always been his puppet.

If what you say they did then why are they not being brought up on charges? Four years of this crap and they are blaming our President Trump still today. Time for accountability!! And not just the underlings!!!

Obama was the first wave Sorros spent money on to get in office there were more , Obama was trained to take the poor out then the middle class then America would start to fall and he did it. My Granddaughter was in fourth grade when he ran the first time and we had books that Hitler wrote and Obama was saying so many of the same things then his wife got on stage and said she never liked America , my Granddaughter looked at me and said who can she be the First Lady if she hates America. Were was all the people that voted for him? They missed so much of what he said he was going to do, the government has got to stop all the people that backed this takeover just pray they do it before we go to the polls

I believe Sorros and the Deep State are too vast and the Government is too infiltrated to bring real justice. The double standard will prevail
