'What the Hell's Going on at the FBI?' Graham Rips Feds for Feinstein-Trump 'Double Standard'
South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham said he is sending a letter to FBI Director Christopher Wray asking for an explanation of DOJ policy after news of a troubling incident five years ago involving a top Democratic senator and a suspected Chinese spy.
At the time, the FBI informed Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) that a man employed by her office was suspected of being a spy for the Chinese government. Feinstein took action and fired the man.
Graham said President Donald Trump was not afforded the same courtesy during a similar counter-intelligence investigation by the FBI into Russian election hacking.
Graham said the FBI should have told Trump it was suspicious of then-aides Carter Page and George Papadopoulos and the pair's alleged ties to Russia.
"Why didn't they do for Trump what they did for Feinstein?" he asked. "What the hell is going on at the FBI?"
Harris Faulkner added that if the FBI indeed was concerned about counter-intelligence versus its alleged partisan leanings, it also should have informed Trump of then-campaign chairman Paul Manafort's past alleged indiscretions.
