Graham Plans to Meet With Barr to Discuss ‘How Best to Tell the Story’ of Russia Probe Origins

Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) announced that he will be meeting with Attorney General William Barr this week to advise him on the rollout of documents relating to the origins of the probe into President Donald Trump‘s 2016 campaign.

During an interview on Fox News’ “Hannity,” Graham — the senior senator from South Carolina and staunch Trump ally — announced his upcoming meeting with the attorney general, saying that he wanted to work with him on finding “how best to tell the story” about the origins of the Trump-Russia investigation.

“I’m going to meet the attorney general this week to talk to him about how best to tell the story,” Graham said. “I don’t want people to conjecture as to what happened. I want you to read it.”

Graham continued on to say that he wanted people to “see all the 302s” — transcripts of interviews by the FBI with witnesses — as well as the “full” application used to obtain the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) warrant to look into the Trump campaign.

“I want you to see all the 302s that we possibly can get to you. I want you to see the full FISA warrant application,” said the Senate Judiciary chairman. “I want to release the transcripts of the confidential informants talking to Papadopolous.”

“I want you to hear in real-time that the guy said, ‘I’m not working with the Russians. If I were, it’d be a crime of treason.”

Graham was then asked by host Sean Hannity whether or not he believed former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton (D) “committed multiple felonies” and the FBI “rigged her investigation.”

The Senate Judiciary chairman said that “there’s a good-faith reason to believe that it’s all true” but that he wanted the public to read Inspector General Michael Horowitz’s report as well as the “documents” so that they can “make up [their] own mind.”
