Graham: It’s ‘Stunning’ Comey Never Told Congress About Fake Email

3

Sen. Lindsey Graham said Sunday that former FBI Director James Comey would have been “incredibly incompetent” if he took actions based on email he knew to be fake.

Graham said in an interview on CNN’s “State of the Union” that Comey told the Senate and House select committees on intelligence about such an email, but never indicated it was fake.
“He talked to members of the Senate and House intel committee that he was sitting on emails that the Russians had between the Democratic Party and the Department of Justice that were highly explosive,” Graham said. “He never once told a member of the House or the Senate that he thought the email was fake.”
Graham is not a member of the Senate intelligence committee, but is helming an investigation from a Senate judiciary subcommittee into Russian involvement in the 2016 election.
On Wednesday, The Washington Post reported that the FBI received a document detailing a supposed email from Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, who was at the time the head of the Democratic National Committee, where she said someone in the Department of Justice told her Attorney General Loretta Lynch was containing the investigation into Hillary Clinton’s email practices as secretary of state. The report said the details came from “a dubious Russian document” and that this document influenced Comey’s decision to make his thinking on the case public. On Friday, CNN reported that Comey acted on this document, even though he knew it to be fake. Read more at CNN.

  1. Why can’t Trump be a bit more proactive and investigate Clintons and Obama’s backroom deals with Russia, China, North Korea, Iran and ISIS?! There is plenty of incriminating evidence to shift the focus were it really belongs. While at it, Trump should also investigate Soros’ manipulation of the US government.

    • Because Trump is a closet Liberal, controlled by the Rinos of the defunct Republican party and they won’t dare make a move before they get the approval of the Editorial board of the NY Times. They are a bunch of sissies who are petrified of their own shadow. It amazing how they got elected in the first place. I warned you idiots not to throw Mike Huckabee under the bus, but you didn’t listen. You chose to listen to Karl Rove & the like, and got all excited about the big dummy himself, Jeb Bush. How stupid can you be?
