WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham (R-South Carolina) today made this statement on the resolution which passed the House of Representatives calling for the release of the Mueller report.
“As currently constructed, I cannot support the House-passed resolution calling for the release of the Mueller report.
“However, I would agree to the resolution with a simple change – it be amended to call for the appointment of a Special Counsel to:
- Investigate alleged misconduct around the handling of the Clinton email investigation.
- Investigate the abuse of the FISA warrant process against Mr. Carter Page.
“I have been calling for a Special Counsel to investigate these matters for more than a year and one should have been appointed a long time ago.
“I believe we owe it to the American people to look at all potential misconduct related to 2016 campaign investigation, not just some.
“Mr. Mueller has been allowed to do his job. It is past time for someone to look at the other side of the political coin.”
