House Republicans are reportedly outraged over Senate Judiciary Chairman Lindsey Graham’s “showboating” since taking over the chairmanship from Senator Grassley.
Senator Chuck Grassley was serious about getting to the bottom of Spygate when he was Chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, but House Republicans are saying that Senator Graham (R-SC) is putting on a “charade” on Fox News for South Carolina voters and “not doing a f*cking thing,” according to investigative reporter, Paul Sperry.

Last month Lindsey Graham appeared on “Sunday Morning Futures” and told host Maria Bartiromo that he is working to declassify a ‘sensitive document’ that will prove the FBI knew the Steele dossier lacked credibility before it was used to obtain a spy warrant on Carter Page.
So what is taking him so long?
Even worse, it has been 18 months since the American people learned that Hillary Clinton and the DNC paid for the phony Russia dossier that was used to spy on Donald Trump during the 2016 presidential election, yet Hillary still hasn’t answered any questions about the scandal.
In January of 2018, the Senate Judiciary Committee, chaired by Grassley at the time, sent Joel Benenson, the Chief Strategist for ‘Hillary for America’ a letter demanding answers about the funding and motivation behind the dossier.
Senators Grassley and Graham asked Mr. Benenson to respond to 12 questions about Hillary and her campaign’s involvement in commissioning the Steele dossier.
“Prior to the Washington Post ‘s article in October of 2017, were you or anyone else at Hillary for America aware of Mr. Steele’s efforts on behalf of the Clinton campaign to compile and distribute allegations about Mr. Trump and the Russian government? If so, when and how did you first learn of his activities on the campaign’s behalf? Please provide all related documents.” the lawmakers demanded a year and a half ago.
The Republican lawmakers also asked Hillary’s campaign if they received any memos from Steele about Donald Trump.
“Did you or anyone else at Hillary for America receive other memoranda written or forwarded by Mr. Steele regarding Mr. Trump and his associates that were not published as part of the Buzzfeed dossier? If so, how and when? Please provide all related documents,” Grassley and Graham wrote.

It appears that once again Hillary Clinton is above the law because it has been 18 months since the Senate Judiciary Committee demanded answers and documents from Hillary’s camp and they still have not responded.
Top House Republicans such as Devin Nunes, Jim Jordan and Mark Meadows have worked hard to expose the Spygate scandal only to watch the Republicans in the Senate, who are enjoying the majority (for now) do nothing with all of the information and documents gathered so far.
