Senate Judiciary Chairman Lindsey Graham, who has been a prominent defender of Donald Trump, came to Trump’s defense again on Wednesday while questioning Inspector General Michael Horowitz over his report.
Graham lashed out at Horowitz, demanding to know why the FBI did not notify then-candidate Trump and his campaign in 2016 that they were the subjects of a counterintelligence investigation to determine how Russia was attacking the U.S. and if any members of the Trump campaign were involved.
The FBI “never made any effort to brief Donald Trump about suspected problems within his campaign,” Graham lamented while ignoring the fact that the FBI was working to determine if Trump or anyone else was colluding with Russia.
“Why did they not tell him that” people like Carter Page and George Papadopoulos might be working with Russia, Graham asked.
Graham later says, “I hope all of us would appreciate if you really believe there may be somebody in my campaign working with a foreign power, please tell me. Why didn’t they tell Trump?”
Graham still continued to ignore the fact that the FBI likely had reason to suspect Trump was that somebody.
