Of the FBI, Sen. Lindsey Graham said, "I don't trust them as far as I can throw them.”

The New York Times dropped a bombshell story over the weekend, reporting that the FBI had opened a counterintelligence investigation into Donald Trump in 2017, concerned he might be a Russian asset after he fired former FBI Director James Comey — but Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) isn’t buying it.

According to an interview he gave to Fox News’ Chris Wallace in early January, Graham said he doesn’t “trust what [he reads] in The New York Times.”

Via RawStory:

“That story came from somebody who leaked it with an agenda,” Graham complained to Fox News host Chris Wallace on Sunday. “I’d like to know who leaked it because they have an agenda not very friendly to President Trump. And I, for one, don’t trust what I read in The New York Times.”

Graham plans to question FBI Director Chris Wray on the issue, he told Wallace.

“I find it astonishing,” he continued. “And, to me, it tells me a lot about the people running the FBI. I don’t trust them as far as I can throw them.”

“How could the FBI do that?” Graham concluded. “What kind of checks and balances are there?”

FBI is a professional patriotic organization protecting all AMERICANS, Graham is a Putin follower

The difference between stupid and ignorant is " can't learn" and "won't learn."

I used to trust lindsey Graham but NO more . He's a servant of the people he's turned away from the trust of FBI who is protecting American's. John McCain would be horrified.

The Trump cult of personality , emphasis on "cult", ensnares Senators and street sweepers alike. Regardless of the outcome of this nonsense, the well has been poisoned for a generation domestically and in foreign relations.
