Now it is pretty obvious that ranking members of the Justice Department and U.S. intelligence community believe they are at a point in their careers where they think they are above congressional oversight.
From Daily Caller:
Sen. Lindsey Graham said Sunday that he has been denied access to interview an FBI agent and an FBI analyst who met with a key source for the Steele dossier who disavowed the salacious document.
Graham has sought interviews with the FBI case agent and supervisory intelligence analyst to discuss their interview in January 2017 with the primary source for Christopher Steele, the former British spy who investigated the Trump campaign for Democrats.
“I made a request to interview the case agent and the intel analyst…and they’re denying me the ability to do that,” Graham said in an interview on Fox News’ “Sunday Morning Futures.”
“I’m going to keep working the system,” Graham said.
“The question is, did the case agent and intel agent refuse to tell the system about exculpatory information? Does the fault lie with two or three people, or was it a system out of control?” Graham said on Fox News.
“Here’s what I think. Every time there was a stop sign for Carter Page or Flynn, the system moved forward because the people at the top did not want to stop.”
Earlier, Rod Rosenstein who appointed Robert Mueller to investigate Russian interference in the 2016 election faced serious grilling from Senate Republicans over new revelations regarding the probe’s origins that have drawn significant political scrutiny in recent months.
Rosenstein spent Wednesday morning being peppered by Republican lawmakers for his handling of special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election and the FBI investigation that eventually sparked it.
Here’s a key moment from Rosenstein’s testimony…

What’s your take on this. Why do you think the FBI denied Senator Lindsey Graham the access to interview those FBI agents. Is it a part of a cover up plan? PLEASE LEAVE A COMMENT IN THE COMMENT SECTION BELOW…
