The Senate Judiciary Committee will hold hearings on Spygate and issues related to unmasking requests made by Obama officials against General Mike Flynn.
“The Judiciary Committee will begin holding multiple, in-depth congressional hearings regarding all things related to Crossfire Hurricane starting in early June,” Lindsey Graham, the chairman of the Judiciary committee, said in a statement Thursday.
The Judiciary Committee will begin holding the hearings in early June.
“Our first phase will deal with the government’s decision to dismiss the Flynn case as well as an in-depth analysis of the unmasking requests made by Obama Administration officials against General Flynn. We must determine if these requests were legitimate,” Graham said.
“Our next area of inquiry, later this summer, will be oversight building upon the Horowitz report about FISA abuses against Carter Page. My goal is to find out why and how the system got so off the rails,” he added.
Senator Graham also said his committee will explore whether Robert Mueller should have ever been appointed as Special Counsel.
“Finally, we will look at whether Robert Mueller should have ever been appointed as Special Counsel. Was there legitimate reason to conclude the Trump campaign had colluded with the Russians?”
US Attorney General Bill Barr told Fox News host Laura Ingraham last month there was ‘no basis’ for the FBI’s ‘Crossfire Hurricane’ investigation into then-candidate Donald Trump.
Recall, FBI counter-intel chief Peter Strzok opened a CI investigation into Trump’s campaign in July of 2016 dubbed ‘Crossfire Hurricane,’ based on bogus claims his camp was working with the Russians.
