Sen. Graham: Judiciary Committee Will Subpoena FBI for Info on Russia Investigations if None Given

Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) said on New Day Wednesday that the Senate Judiciary Committee would issue a subpoena to the FBI if the organization did not respond to questions regarding investigations into Russia’s involvement in the 2016 presidential campaign.

Graham also made clear that FBI Director James Comey would not appear before the Committee, saying, “I never asked him to appear in person today.” However, Graham said he expected Comey to respond in writing to his and Sen. Whitehouse’s questions.

Graham and Whitehouse designated Wednesday as the deadline for an answer.

Graham said that a subpoena had support from both parties on the Senate Judiciary Committee. “I will subpoena the information requested in the letter with the support of my Chairman, Senator Grassley, who’s been terrific, [and] the ranking Democrat, Senator Feinstein.”

“I’m going to get to the bottom of it, and if it needs a subpoena, that’s what we’ll do,” Graham said.
