Clinton campaign had 2016 investigation of foreign influence

Turns out, the Clinton campaign in 2016 had an FBI investigation involving a foreign influence operation. Instead of taking out a FISA, the FBI gave the campaign a defensive briefing. It's a very direct contrast with how the FBI handled the bogus investigation into the Trump campaign, suggesting even more political bias.

Seems Lindsay Graham actually found something useful?

Mind you, giving a defensive briefing seems like what you would want the FBI to do in this situation. Even if it tips off the candidate who, in Hillary's case, is clearly pretty casual about foreign money flowing into her coffers. It's the contrast with the treatment of the Trump campaign that makes this a serious matter.
