Lindsey Graham appeared on Sean Hannity’s show to discuss the breaking details of the crimes James Comey made according to the OIG report. Graham claimed that he believes Obama was in the know on the investigation into Trump’s campaign, and is wanting Obama to testify on the stand over his knowledge.
Graham stated, “the counterintelligence investigation, there is no real credible evidence I’ve seen to suggest that Papadopoulos actually was working with the Russians, that came from our own people that told him about the Clinton emails. The bottom line is who briefed President Obama if anybody about the counterintelligence investigation against the Trump campaign. And finally, why did they not tell the Trump campaign that they had concerns about people working for him tied to Russia. That’s what you’re supposed to do in a counterintelligence investigation.”
Hannity asked, “Would you agree with Andy McCarthy that any counterintelligence investigation has to have a President behind it and Strzok and Page referred to the White House wanting to know every detail. Does that mean that Barack Obama, the president at the time should be asked what he knew and when he knew it about all this?”
Graham answered, “I can’t imagine an investigation of the Republican nominee for president. Counterintelligence investigation of his campaign was not approved at the highest level. I cannot imagine it happening without somebody in the White House knowing about it. And the question for me is who told Obama. And when you find out who that person is you begin to put the puzzle together.”
Hannity asked, “Do you think he needs to be asked those questions, sir. Under oath?”
Graham answered, “Absolutely. If there is – I’m going to call, talk to McCabe, Comey, all of them, Brennan Clapper. Did you ever inform President Obama about the counterintelligence investigation? What did you tell him? When did you tell him? Yes, and I’d like to know what President Obama thought about the investigation. Why did not somebody tell Trump? The whole point of a counterintelligence investigation is to protect people.”
