Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina accused the left of ignoring corruption at the FBI and Department of Justice, on “Fox & Friends” Tuesday, and said Democrats don’t even seem to care.

“Word of caution to the public: A lot of people are trying to convict President [Donald] Trump, don’t be so fast,” Graham said. (RELATED: Lindsey Graham: ‘Liberals Would Kill Themselves’ If Trump Wins The Nobel Peace Prize)

“I’ve seen no evidence of collusion after two years,” he continued. “[Special counsel Robert] Mueller’s looking at it. We’ll see what he says. Plenty of corruption at the Department of Justice and the FBI — should be stunning. Not one Democrat seems to care.”

Graham said if the roles were reversed and Republicans were accused of these types of intelligence abuses, it would be front page news across the country.


“Reverse the roles. Just imagine if the Republican Party had hired a foreign agent to go to Russia to get dirt on Hillary Clinton and they used it to get a warrant and never told the court about it. It’d be a front page story everywhere,” he declared. “That’s pretty corrupt. When the two, FBI agent and the U.S. attorney, I mean, the DOJ lawyer — ‘It’s our job to stop Trump.’ Can you imagine what would happen if it’s our job to stop Clinton?”

Graham also slammed former FBI agent Peter Strzok for allowing his bias to interfere with his duty and accused him of trying to stack the deck in favor of former Secretary of State Clinton.

“Peter Strzok clearly was in the tank for Clinton — hated Trump. No American would get the same treatment she did,” Graham added. “If you were charged or suspected of this kind of misconduct, you’d be in jail now. An interview, not under oath — a couple lawyers who really didn’t ask hard questions. And you pivot to Russia before Clinton’s done.”

“They had a bias against Trump, for Clinton. It was obvious,” he concluded “They gave a politically corrupt document to get a warrant on an American citizen. This dossier to this day is still unsubstantiated.”
