The Senate Judiciary Committee struck on Thursday, voting to approve Sen. Lindsay Graham’s (D-SC) subpoenas of several Obama-era officials as part of the probe into the origins of the Russia collusion hoax.
Multiple high-level Obama officials will now be made to answer for their role in attempting to undermine the duly elected incoming president, including former FBI Director James Comey, FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, ex-National Intelligence Director James Clapper, former CIA Director John Brennan and former Deputy Attorney General Sally Yates and others.
The Washington Times reported:
It would also cover documents, communications and testimony from top FBI and Justice Department officials James Baker, Bruce Ohr, Lisa Page, Peter Strozk and Bill Pirestrap
Mr. Graham, South Carolina Republican, said the subpoenas were necessary to get to the bottom of why special counsel Robert Mueller’s probe moved forward when it was clear there was no evidence President Trump or members of his campaign had colluded with Russia.
“I think we need to look long and hard at how the Mueller investigation got off the rails,” said Graham.
Of course, the vote prompted a massive outcry from Democrats, who are attempting to add their own subpoenas for Trump administration officials, but Graham smacked them down, saying:
I don’t understand why you would want to do the Mueller investigation all over again after we’ve two-and-half years and $25 million dollars doing it. I’m sorry it didn’t turn out the way people liked but it is behind us and how we are going to look at what happened and the misconduct involved and hold people accountable.
