Graham: Special Counsel Should Have Been Appointed to Investigate 'All Things Clinton'
Hannity: real agenda of 'destroy Trump forces' emerging.
Sen. Lindsey Graham said Tuesday that a special counsel should have been appointed to investigate "all things" related to Hillary Clinton.
Graham responded to Sean Hannity's opening monologue (below) on the infamous anti-Trump dossier, alleged Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) abuses and the Uranium One scandal, all of which he tied to Clinton and her presidential campaign.
“We should have had a special counsel appointed a long time ago to look at all things Clinton,” Graham said.
The South Carolina Republican, who is likely to become chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee in January, said he plans on investigating if the dossier was used in obtaining a FISA warrant to spy on Trump campaign associate Carter Page.
He said he wants to know how someone could swear before the FISA court that an unverified dossier, which was funded by the Clinton campaign and the Democratic National Committee, was accurate.
"Somebody misled the court. So I promise you and your listeners that we’re going to find out how this warrant was issued," Graham said. "How did the system break down?"
He said if the tables were turned and it was the Trump campaign and the Republican National Committee that hired a foreign agent to compile unverified political opposition research that was later used to obtain surveillance warrants on a Clinton associate, it would be "front-page news all over the world."
"We're not going to let this go, because it's important [to] the American people that the FISA warrant application process work correctly."

In his opening monologue, Hannity said the real agenda of the left is now emerging, but questioned whether it will benefit the average American citizen.
"Every night, as we go over the news, I want you to look at things from a different perspective. As we talk to these new newsmakers on the Democratic side, ask yourself very important questions because you're going to come to a conclusion pretty quickly. Ask yourself this: Are those in power - is what they are doing - good for this country? Do their comments, do their remarks, do their actions -- do they strengthen the country?"
