Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) on Sunday slammed the Justice Department's application for a secret surveillance warrant on a former Trump campaign adviser, saying that it was based on a "bunch of garbage."
Asked on CBS's "Face the Nation" whether a Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) warrant obtained on Carter Page, a former foreign policy adviser on President Trump's campaign, was justified, Graham insisted that it was not and that the opposition research dossier that helped lay the foundation for the warrant application was bunk.
"If the dossier is the reason you issued the warrant, it was a bunch of garbage," Graham said. "The dossier has proven to be a bunch of garbage."

Well Linda, whatchagonnadoaboutit?
You have the authority to call an end to this sham. Almost 500 days into this “investigation” with ZERO results. Somebody call the Waste, Fraud, and Abuse hotline.
And, there are no consequences to the perps.
Why would anyone think this behavior would not continue?
Flimsey Grahamnesty wants to be re-elected in 2020.
Simple as that.
He should not be re-elected after voting for amnesty.
Simple as that.
Brit Hume is an operative for the Deep State.
He has been telling US that we cannot, should not, will not enforce the laws and borders for decades.
My opinion is the judge(s)(I believe actually were only two judges as one signed off on the warrant three times, and one another time) had to be set off by the outrageous claims in the Dossier presented them as evidence, and CYA should have become the word of the day. I know if I saw such a compilation presented to me as evidence to try to make me think other than how I think of DJT, I’d have been demanding all sorts of proof.
Is it alright for me to think conspiracy?
Its not illegal to set someone up to possibly do time for a crime he didnt commit? How do these people sleep at night
Pretty much proves John has already assumed room temperature.
OK, so who goes to jail? (Nobody...nothing changes).
Spot on post!
Any legitimate political leader or law enforcement would have thought twice before beginning surveillance on the opposition political party during the presidential campaign. Instead they jumped in with both feet.
Correcto Mundo! And so are most of the so called conservative talking heads & career politicians in DC.
Nobody will go to prison because the authorities (DOJ & FBI) are in charge of any prosecutions, and their bosses are part of the deep state, so why would they do anything to make them look corrupt? The deep state is deeper than most realize.
Nice to have former prosecutor Graham onboard. McCain is irrelevant.
CRIMINAL GARBAGE WARRANTING FIRINGS, CHARGES AND PRISON SENTENCING
Or illegal to present false information to a judge for a warrant?
And yet, in late October this year, Mueller will issue arrest warrants for President Trump, based mostly on this 'dossier'.
