BREAK IN TRANSCRIPT
HANNITY: Here with reaction to all this, Senator Lindsey Graham.
Senator, I'm going to be blunt. I don't believe a word. This is not an accident. I do not believe them.
SEN. LINDSEY GRAHAM (R-SC): Right.
HANNITY: The same people that were out charging people for what they themselves may have done here.
GRAHAM: Well, if you can't manage your own phone, why should we trust you to investigate a crime? So, I guess they just ran out of hammers and bleach -- bleaching material.
So the question is, did they obstruct justice? Did they intentionally delete information from their phone because Horowitz was on on the case? That's the question for Durham.
My job as chairman of the Judiciary Committee is to find out how the Department of Justice and the FBI got Crossfire Hurricanes so wrong, why they meant -- lied to the FISA court to make sure it never happens again. As to future prosecutions, I would be shocked if the only person prosecuted is Clinesmith.
HANNITY: So they went after -- you -- well, let's stay there. You believe it will be more.
How was James Comey escape here? He's so arrogant.
HANNITY: He signed three warrants. He was warned before the first one.
GRAHAM: Right, right.
HANNITY: The sub-source told him that none of this is real. They admit now, there was no evidence of collusion. The media mob lied, Mueller's team lied.
They never should have had Mueller even appointed, Senator. They dragged the country through hell.
GRAHAM: Right. So, I made an invitation to Comey, McCabe and Strzok to come before the committee. They will be respectfully treated, to answer questions about the Horowitz report.
I'm working with their lawyers to try to get them into the committee, so we can ask questions and let them give answers to the questions we've been asking on this show. They may have good answers but they need to be asked the question.
HANNITY: OK. So where are we with this and what about these new developments? Because I think they owe us answers, that they all, oh, made password errors so now we're just going to erase the phone completely, and wipe it clean? You mean like with a cloth, that kind of clean? Bleach Bit clean, hammer clean?
GRAHAM: We cannot live in a country where this is tolerated. Trump-Russia, look how much money they spent, how many agents were involved investigating all things Trump and Russia, how many subpoenas issued, how many lives turned upside down.
The question for me, was there a double standard here? It's pretty obvious to me there was.
But stay tuned, Sean. You think you're mad about the phone's been wiped, stay tuned. We'll talk in about 10 or 12 days and we'll see if there's something else you could get mad about. Just stay tuned.
HANNITY: I hate when you're basically telling me you know something I don't know. I hate that.
By the way, congrats on your campaign. You're doing well against --
HANNITY: -- let's see, Barbara Streisand and Rosie and -- by the way, people can get to all this information on your website?
GRAHAM: Yeah, https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=http-3A__LindseyGraham.com&d=DwICAg&c=cnx1hdOQtepEQkpermZGwQ&r=tgDLkJy54PfJyWJwul3dKe54qGxqO7b7d5vjo7RcZds&m=Amp3TgN-xagBtWlReSi33-PFffEru4YiQtxf8Gm_Nek&s=UE8r9dsMpQeQ7-kLFmPbLS4HlPaIlyu0j7s4A_GPClI&e= . My opponent's going to raise $75 million from every liberal in the country trying to defeat me. Five or ten bucks goes a long way. We need to keep this seat.
HANNITY: Well, I was talking more about the information about the Mueller investigation, but that's OK, it's all good. Thank you, Senator.
GRAHAM: Yeah, that's coming too.
HANNITY: You're right. We need South Carolina not to be --
GRAHAM: If I lose, you will never hear about --
HANNITY: And Barbra Streisand. Yeah, no, thank you.
GRAHAM: Can I just say in this? If the Republicans lose the Senate, you're never going to hear about this crap again.
HANNITY: That's true. We need the truth.
