FNC’s Maria Bartiromo gave voice to many viewers of her show “Sunday Morning Futures” during an interview with Sen. Lindsey Graham, asking him point-blank why he is not using his powers as Senate Judiciary Chairman to launch investigations into a wide variety of matters:
MARIA BARTIROMO, FOX NEWS: I’ve got to tell you though, I mean, we’ve been talking about this now for three years and when I first came on the scene and said, “Look, this is a coup to take down Donald Trump, I got slammed.” Everybody out there was just going on this, you know, “Russia collusion witch hunt,” which was ridiculous, and you told me repeatedly off the last couple years as I continued to bring this evidence forth, in February 2019 you said, “I’m going to subpoena Rosenstein, Yates, Strzok, Comey.” In July 2019 you vowed to do a “deep dive.” In August 2019, you said, “We’ll make sure this never happens again.” September 22, 2019 you came on this show and said, “We’re ready to start calling people.” October 2019 you said, “I’m going to call Horowitz and subpoena. And November 2019, I’m going to call Horowitz after the report.” And you are the only one with subpoena power, we need you to call these individuals down to testify as witnesses. People want you to move on this, senator are you going to do it? SEN. LINDSEY GRAHAM: Yeah, but I’ve told you and I’ll tell you again. I’m not going to interfere in ongoing criminal matter. This is a rule of law nation. I’m a politician. My goal is to write a report on how it got off the rails, but I can promise you we’re going to do it right. I’m not jumping in the middle of this case but when it’s over we’re going to find out why the Mueller investigation lasted two years. We’re going to find out what kind of FBI shop was run out of the seventh floor and find out how you could issue warrants against Carter Page when the Russian subsource told the FBI in January of 2017 it’s all a bunch of garbage. Durham is a prosecutor, I’m an oversight guy, but I’m not going to interfere in an ongoing criminal matter, period. BARTIROMO: Another lane of yours is the China lane. GRAHAM: Right. BARTIROMO: You also have bills coming out to keep China’s feet to the fire. They lied and hit this coronavirus. Now the whole world is suffering tell me what you’re going to do and where are your colleagues on the left in terms of partnering with you against china?
