Graham Talks with FBI Director Wray about Oversight of Crossfire Hurricane, Related FISA Abuses

WASHINGTON – Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham (R-South Carolina) today released this statement regarding a discussion this morning with FBI Director Christopher Wray.

“I had a very good discussion this morning with FBI Director Wray about providing witnesses and documents to the Senate Judiciary Committee related to our oversight of Crossfire Hurricane, related FISA abuses and the subsequent Mueller investigation. 

“I believe the Director is committed to being helpful in an appropriate manner by balancing the needs of privacy for Bureau employees with public transparency for the benefit of the American people. 

“Director Wray expressed to me his commitment to holding accountable those who may have committed violations of law or policy, providing appropriate due process sooner rather than later. 

“Like the Committee, Director Wray will be deferential to any ongoing criminal investigation being conducted by U.S. Attorney Durham. 

“I look forward to further cooperation between the Bureau, Department of Justice and Senate Judiciary Committee.”
