Former FBI Director Comey’s opening remarks show that President Trump is not under investigation, according to Graham’s analysis.
Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) said that he thought former FBI Director James Comey’s prepared remarks show that there was no obstruction of justice by President Trump during an interview on CBS’ This Morning on Thursday.
CBS News’ Charlie Rose asked Graham why he thought Comey’s opening statement was a pretty good day for the President.
“Well, number one, in the statement Comey said that the President is not the target or subject to an investigation – counter-intelligence, criminal, or otherwise – regarding Russian collusion as of this moment,” Graham explained.
“Unless [special counsel Robert] Mueller is a complete idiot, which he is not, he’s concluded there’s no obstruction of justice case because if he had concluded otherwise, Comey wouldn’t be testifying,” Graham said. “You wouldn’t let your chief and only witness go through this process if you really believed you had a case to prosecute, and Mr. Mueller is a good prosecutor.”
