‘Is there an investigation?’ Graham demands answers from FBI on Russia.

Written by  Karoun Demirjian

Sen. Lindsey O. Graham warned that he will subpoena the Trump administration for evidence supporting the president’s claim that his offices were wiretapped and that he may soon join efforts to hold up the nominee for deputy attorney general.

The South Carolina Republican — one of the chief skeptics of President Trump’s Russia policy — said he will block the nomination of Rod Rosenstein as the No. 2 man at the Justice Department if FBI Director James B. Comey does not clarify on Wednesday whether the bureau is investigating the Trump team’s alleged ties to Russia.

Graham made the statements on NBC’s “Today” show Wednesday morning, warning that “Congress is going to flex its muscle” with the Trump administration if it does not provide lawmakers with answers regarding Russia.

“We’ll issue a subpoena to get the information, we’ll hold up the deputy attorney general’s nomination until Congress is provided with information to finally clear the air as to whether or not there was ever a warrant issued against the Trump campaign,” said Graham, who is leading the Senate Judiciary Committee’s investigation of allegations of Trump-Russia ties.

Frustration with Comey is boiling over in the judiciary panel, where Chairman Charles E. Grassley (R-Iowa) said Tuesday night that he would not schedule Rosenstein for a confirmation vote until the FBI director briefs the panel on Russia.

Lanie,
You are a total fool.
the Trump mafia has done nothing but try to divert attention form the subject any time it comes up.
There should be a major investigation, and if it is found that Trump is in bed with Russia, his next bed should be in Leavenworth prison.
From what information is out there, it looks like Trump is giving the Russians a big wet kiss, at our expense.

This was his time to speak up as his coach RINO Mc Cain has told him the money will stop if he doesn't. These are the two biggest RINOS in the Repub. party in congress. Both need to GO and the sooner the better.

Enjoy the next 8 years, snowflake.

When a Republican from the deep south manages to piss you idiots off, I know I am truly dealing with a bunch of brain dead dolts who must be thankful that respiration is an autonomic response else you would all be toast. When will you understand that your hero is a serial lying, pussy grabbing scum only interested in himself!

Wow, here we have further proof from a liberal idiot that liberalism is indeed a serious mental illness that requires professional help. I do hope that Mr. Waldman will seek professional help before he hurts himself or someone else!

John in many circles I am considered a centerist. I believe in my bones that the Cheeto is dangerous to America in so many ways there isn't space to write it down! You have bet on someone who doesn't give a rap for anything or anyone but his sick self and I further believe that time will prove me right!

Bob,
Both your comment and your follow up scored a bull's eye with the "dumpster fire".

What I am concerned with is, will there a USA left to put back together when we get rid of this ass.

This Southern weasel needs a beat down. Is he a RINO? They are afraid of Trump and the swamp will be getting drained soon. Enough of this Russian inquiry. I guess he had deals in place with Hillary and the Democrats that got screwed up.
Really have to get a person stronger than Paul Crying Ryan to get things done along with the Senator Counterpart McConnell. I believe computer hacking and even wiretapping was going on . The Professional Politicians are stinking like 3 day old fish.

If any it's likely bogus. They all have issues with Trump and his agenda because it's the right thing to be doing. They were & still are lacking in the way to do anything that would upset the status quo of the corrupt and political perk dealings that are all questionable. FBI, CIA, NSA etc, are well know for illegal bugging ops, so what's to stop them now...NOTHING.
Think Watergate for one good example. Hillary was involved in that one too.
Bury the swamp people.

Hey softball,
Your post is insane.
Watergate was 100% republican, namely NIXON. He was just one more corrupt republican
Watergate was before Hillary's time in Washington, and she is a democrat, and Watergate was ALL republican.

Wrong. The investigation needs to be obama 2012 re: russia AND IRAN ! ! "tell vlad i'll do anything' and a skew of 30% vs exit polling in key corridors says so ! 1
This other bs is a distraction from THAT!

Simon.
Do you have enough sense to come in out a pouring rain.
Your post is total elephant crap.

The investigation was on the Russians, NOT the Trump campaign...it was just that they were continuing the wiretaps of Trump's people...then giving the transcripts to the MSM...And RINO's Lindsey Graham & McCain know it, they are just trying to deflect...to keep their involvement under wraps...The truth is finally about to make an appearance!
