The Senate Judiciary Committee will hold hearings on Spygate and issues related to unmasking requests made by Obama officials against General Mike Flynn.
“The Judiciary Committee will begin holding multiple, in-depth congressional hearings regarding all things related to Crossfire Hurricane starting in early June,” Lindsey Graham, the chairman of the Judiciary committee, said in a statement Thursday.
The Judiciary Committee will begin holding the hearings in early June.
“Our first phase will deal with the government’s decision to dismiss the Flynn case as well as an in-depth analysis of the unmasking requests made by Obama Administration officials against General Flynn. We must determine if these requests were legitimate,” Graham said.
During an interview with Fox Business on Thursday morning, President Donald Trump spoke out about the long list of Obama administration officials, including former Vice President Joe Biden, who unmasked his former national security advisor Michael Flynn.
The President slammed the former administration saying that this was the “greatest political crime” in American history and said that the Obama officials involved with the unmasking should be punished.
“It was the greatest political crime in the history of our country,” President Trump told Fox host Maria Bartiromo. “If I were a Democrat instead of a Republican, I think everybody would have been in jail a long time ago, and I’m talking with 50-year sentences. It is a disgrace what’s happened. This is the greatest political scam, hoax in the history of our country.”
President Trump went on to shred Obama officials for targeting Flynn.
“People should be going to jail for this stuff and hopefully, a lot of people are going to have to pay,” President Trump said. “No other president should have to go through, and I’ll tell you, Gen. Flynn and others are heroes, heroes, because what’s happened to them. They weren’t after Gen. Flynn. They wanted him to lie about me. Make up a story.”
