Senate takes over SpyGate investigation under Graham

Daily CallerSenate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham is resuming an investigation of potential surveillance abuse by the FBI with an expansive request for records related to the bureau’s vetting of the Steele dossier.

In a letter sent Thursday to Attorney General William Barr, Graham asked for all FBI and Justice Department documents related to investigators’ attempts to verify allegations made in the dossier, which was authored by former British spy Christopher Steele and funded by Democrats.

The FBI will be in a bind here. Either they tried to verify it, or they did not. If they did, there will be records, and since it's not true, those records will show at best ambiguity and at worst that it was NOT verifiable, ie false... but they kept going to the court anyway. If they did not, they have no records, which is itself a problem.

On the other hand, I have no confidence in Graham. So we'll just have to see where this goes.

UPDATE: Graham wants a new special counsel.
