Lindsey Graham Says He Will Subpoena Wiretapping Evidence from Intel Community (Video)
Senator Lindsey Graham told CNN he will subpoena wiretapping evidence from the intelligence community.
Graham said he will request intelligence on whether a warrant was obtained or sought by the Obama intelligence community.
Sen. Lindsey Graham said Wednesday he is ready to subpoena the intelligence agencies for evidence that would prove President Donald Trump’s claims that he was wiretapped last year by then-President Barack Obama.
Asked by CNN if he would subpoena for any evidence, the South Carolina Republican said, “Yes.”
“All I can say is that the country needs an answer to this. The current President has accused the former President of basically wiretapping his campaign,” Graham said, one day after he joined Trump for a one-on-one lunch at the White House.
Graham and Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse, a Rhode Island Democrat, sent a letter to FBI Director James Comey and the acting deputy attorney general Wednesday, requesting any information regarding Trump’s claims.
