Sen. Graham Blames FBI For Trump Campaign's 'Improper' Russian Contacts [View all]

Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) is troubled that staffers on Trump’s 2016 campaign had “inappropriate ties” with Russia, and he knows just whose fault that is: the FBI.

In a strange and clumsy attempt to cover for the White House, Graham sent a letter to FBI Director Christopher Wray, wanting to know why the FBI didn’t try to protect the Trump campaign from possibly colluding with Russia.

“Upon developing concerns that Trump campaign staffers George Papadopoulos, Carter Page, Michael Flynn and Paul Manafort had improper ties to the Russian government, what defensive briefings did the FBI provide to then-candidate Trump or the Trump campaign of the potential threat?” Graham wrote.

“Given the continuing efforts by Russia and other bad actors to infiltrate American elections, what policies does the FBI have in place to warn current and future candidates of foreign efforts and attempts to infiltrate their campaigns?”
