Lindsey Graham: Special Counsel Needs to Investigate FBI Corruption
The Sentry Bugle ^ | Aug. 17, 2018 | James Ledbetter

Posted on 08/17/2018 5:49:58 AM PDT by JamesLedbetter

The Washington Post reported that a former top FBI official, Peter Strzok, who had been assigned to and then removed from special counsel Robert S. Mueller III’s investigation, had “exchanged politically charged texts disparaging [President] Trump and supporting Democrat Hillary Clinton” and that Strzok was “also a key player in the investigation into Clinton’s use of a private email server.”

This is a blockbuster revelation, carrying the possibility of shattering public confidence in a number of long-held assumptions about the criminal justice system generally and the FBI and the Justice Department specifically. The Justice Department should appoint a special counsel to investigate Strzok’s actions as soon as possible.

The Strzok report comes on the heels of the widely derided Justice Department investigation into IRS discrimination against conservative groups, including the disposition of allegations against IRS senior official Lois Lerner, and after the wildly erratic behavior of then-FBI Director James Comey during 2016. It also follows the vote to hold then-Attorney General Eric Holder Jr. in contempt of Congress — the first ever against a sitting member of the Cabinet — with 17 Democrats voting in support. Mix into this battering of the Justice Department’s and the FBI reputations the still-murky charges and counter-charges of abuse of “unmasking” powers during the waning days of the Obama era.

As a result, a large swath of responsible center-right observers is demanding a full review of the investigation and prosecution powers wielded by the Obama-era Justice Department and FBI. Former federal prosecutor Andrew C. McCarthy wrote in National Review on Saturday that President Donald Trump should call for a second independent counsel to investigate abuse of the counterintelligence authorities under President Barack Hussein Obama, abuses he suggests were undertaken to protect controversial Iran deal on nuclear weapons.

The FBI also needs to investigate why FORMER Federal employees still need a security clearance. That’s boo****!

Linda has been very vocally supporting Trump the last several weeks.

Has he really seen the light or is he up for reelection?

Linda has something there - the single largest result of the Mueller investigation is its revealing FBI corruption. And as he believes he can investigate anything he wants, the logical conclusion is that he turn the whole focus on FBI corruption.

Ain’t gonna happen. Those are his former best buddies. He will move anywhere but there..........

Judge Mueller might be able to earn back some self-respect if he had TRUTH and JUSTICE on his mind.

Linda is finally deeply concerned about something other than Trump saving the country. I never thought it could happen.

The fbi is corrupted. This must have happened during a dem administration. All the left-leaning agents must go.

I sure as hell don’t want THIS SC looking at this. Mueller’s entire team are HRC loyalists. What do you suppose they would come up with?

If they assigned special councils for all the crime and corruption in D.C. There wouldn’t be enough people in the U.S. to fill the positions in the special councils.

“Lindsey Graham: Special Counsel Needs to Investigate FBI Corruption”

We need a special counsel to take over all aspects of federal law enforcement since there is no real DOJ/FBI anymore.
