Graham: IG Report a Stunning, Unprecedented Rebuke of Former FBI Director

WASHINGTON – Today Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham (R-South Carolina) released this statement on Department of Justice Inspector General Michael Horowitz’s report on former FBI Director James Comey.

“The Inspector General’s report is a stunning and unprecedented rebuke of a former Director of the FBI. 

This is the first of what I expect will be several more ugly and damning rebukes of senior DOJ and FBI officials regarding their actions and biases toward the Trump campaign of 2016. 

“I appreciate the time and effort Mr. Horowitz and his team spent documenting the off-the-rails behavior of Mr. Comey regarding the leaking of law enforcement materials to the media. I also appreciate Mr. Horowitz for reinforcing the proper standards expected of senior DOJ and FBI officials. Well done Mr. Horowitz.”
