Evidence is mounting that the FBI embarked on a counterintelligence investigation against Donald Trump’s campaign for the president in 2016. Federal law enforcement misled a FISA court in order to seek a wiretap and they worked on the public dime to scrutinize a political campaign for president. Sen. Mitch McConnell criticized the FBI and said “we’ve been painfully reminded that our nation and our liberties are not only threatened from without. The fabric of our country is also hurt when tools and capabilities that are meant to keep us safe are abused — in ways that are, at best, reckless, sloppy and unaccountable; or, worse, polluted by political bias.” In order for the Senate to investigate further, Sen. Lindsey Graham is seeking subpoenas for James Comey, Andrew McCabe, and Loretta Lynch in.
