(Nov. 1, 2020) — On this morning’s “Sunday Morning Futures” hosted by Maria Bartiromo, Sen. Lindsey Graham, chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, said that former FBI Acting Director and Deputy Director Andrew McCabe will be testifying to the committee on November 10.
Graham had previously reported that McCabe would testify in early October shortly after former FBI Director James Comey provided his remote testimony, but McCabe reportedly feared exposure to the coronavirus given a spike of new diagnoses among Senate Republicans.
As did Comey, McCabe was reportedly given the option of appearing remotely rather than in person.
Graham additionally told Bartiromo that the investigation into the 2016 Trump campaign known as “Crossfire Hurricane” is possibly “the most corrupt investigation in the history of the FBI” and that U.S. Attorney for the District of Connecticut John Durham, appointed by U.S. Attorney General William P. Barr to investigate Crossfire’s origins, is “all over this.”
“I’d be shocked if people are not indicted” as a result of Durham’s investigation, Graham said.
The results of a 22-month Special Counsel investigation led by former FBI director Robert S. Mueller III ultimately found insufficient evidence that anyone associated with the 2016 Trump campaign “colluded” with the Kremlin to affect the outcome of the election, as the FBI had alleged.
In September, a former FBI attorney was charged for altering an email pertinent to the FBI’s ability to obtain surveillance warrants on Carter W. Page, a former 2016 Trump campaign adviser who was never charged with a crime and, in fact, had served as a CIA source “for decades,” according to Page himself.
Kevin Clinesmith agreed to plead “guilty” to the charge, multiple sources have reported.
Representing Georgia, Graham is facing a tight re-election race on Tuesday.
Weeks ago Bartiromo accurately reported that no interim report or status would be provided by Durham’s office on its probe of Crossfire before the November 3 election.
