Chairman Graham on Clinesmith Guilty Plea: “The Wheels of Justice are Turning”

WASHINGTON – Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham (R-South Carolina) today made this statement after Kevin Clinesmith, an attorney formerly in the FBI’s Office of General Counsel, pleaded guilty to one charge of making a false statement in the course of the FBI’s Crossfire Hurricane investigation. Clinesmith doctored an email that the FBI then relied upon as evidence to obtain the Carter Page FISA warrants.

“The wheels of justice are turning. 

“It is imperative we restore trust to a broken system and the only way that is possible is for people to be held accountable for their actions. 

“More to come.”
