Sen. Graham: Comey's Actions on Fake Russian Email 'Incompetent'
Sen. Lindsey Graham lashed out at fired FBI Director James Comey Sunday, calling his intervention in the 2016 election an "incredibly incompetent thing to do" if it was based on "fake information generated by the Russians."
In an interview on CNN's "State of the Union," the South Carolina Republican said "I don't know who to believe anymore."
"He never briefed the Congress, the Judiciary Committee," he said. "What he told the Intelligence Committee about this e-mail – he never suggested it was fake. So, if he intervened in the election based on fake information generated by the Russians, that was an incredibly incompetent thing to do."
Graham called the disclosure "a huge deal."
"The idea that the FBI director's decision to jump into the election and say that Hillary Clinton did not commit a crime but [that] she was pretty much incompetent was based on a fake e-mail from Russia," he added "is a stunning story."
"From [a congressional] point of view, he never told us it was fake," he said. "So, he needs to be held accountable and if … it is not fake, we need another investigation."
"If this is a true email, I want to see the email," he added.http://www.newsmax.com/Politics/lin...5/28/id/792794/
