Lindsey Graham is eager to investigate DOJ, Hillary Clinton

By Steve Benen, MSNBC, November 16

As Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) gets ready to take the reins as chair the Senate Judiciary Committee, he spoke with Fox News’ Sean Hannity this week about his plans for the new year – specifically as to the kind of issues Graham is prepared to investigate. From the Lexis-Nexis transcript:

“You know, to my Democratic friends, if you want to look backwards, we are all going to look backwards. I want to know why the FBI reached to the conclusion along with the Department of Justice that Hillary Clinton didn’t commit a crime. Was it because of political bias? […]

“Did the Department of Justice and the FBI use a document paid for by the Democratic Party? Research by foreign agents to get a warrant against an American citizen that was inappropriate, potentially unlawful? […]

“We need a special counsel to look at all of this. But I intend to look at it. I’m going to look at it. If you are going to keep plowing everything up in 2016, count me in. If you want to look for it, I will look for it.”

Lindsey Graham poised to lead Judiciary panel after Grassley steps down

By Kevin Freking, Associated Press, November 18th, 2018;

Sen. Charles Grassley of Iowa is giving up the chairmanship of the Senate Judiciary Committee after shepherding 84 of President Donald Trump’s judicial nominees through the confirmation process over the past two years, including Supreme Court Justices Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh.

Grassley said he plans to become chairman of the Senate Finance Committee next year. To do that, he’ll have to give up the gavel of the Judiciary Committee, which he has held since 2015. Democrats have accused Grassley of unfairly disregarding Senate protocols and courtesies to get Trump’s nominees confirmed.

The move paves the way for Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C. to become the next Judiciary chairman. Graham has become a close Trump ally and was a vocal supporter of Kavanaugh’s confirmation, pushing back against sexual misconduct allegations, which

“If I am fortunate enough to be selected by my colleagues to serve as Chairman, I will push for the appointment and Senate confirmation of highly qualified conservative judges to the federal bench and aggressive oversight of the Department of Justice and FBI,” Graham tweeted Friday.

Grassley, 85, is serving his seventh term. As chairman of the Senate Finance Committee, Grassley will oversee legislative efforts on taxes and health care. The committee also has jurisdiction over trade issues, a huge issue in his home state of Iowa where farmers and manufacturers have dealt with retaliatory tariffs from China, the European Union and elsewhere for those imposed by the Trump administration.

Grassley said he would focus on more tax cuts. “I want to continue to work to make sure that as many Americans as possible get to experience this good economy for themselves,” he said in his announcement.

But prospects for agreement on taxes probably got harder with Democrats taking control of the House. Democrats opposed the Trump tax cuts, saying they went mostly to the rich and increased the nation’s debt.
