4:05 PM ET – Retired Air Force Colonel Senator Lindsey Graham of South Carolina, joins us today to discuss his exchange with IG Horowitz yesterday, and the ridiculous answers he was given when questioning the investigation process. Graham caused quite a stir over the weekend when during an interview he told people who were bothered by his cooperative nature with President Trump, to essentially go fly a kite. From Graham’s exchange yesterday:

Senator Lindsey Graham (R- SC) on Monday directly challenged the Justice Department inspector general’s conclusion that there was no “documentary evidence” to prove that political bias affected the federal investigation into Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server.

“I’m not buying that the Clinton email investigation was on the up and up,” Graham told DOJ I.G. Michael Horowitz during his appearance before the Senate Judiciary Committee to discuss his 568-page report.

Graham, like other Republicans, focused on the contents of an Aug. 8, 2016, exchange of texts between FBI lovebirds Peter Strzok and Lisa Page, in which Strzok, the lead investigator in the Clinton probe, had indicated that he could prevent then-candidate Donald Trump from getting elected.

“We’ll stop it,” Strzok had told Page.

“I don’t know how you feel about that — that’s pretty unnerving,” the senator noted, pointing out that just a week later, they were texting about an “insurance policy” following a meeting in “Andy’s office” to stop Trump. (h/t PJ Media)

4:30 PM ET – House Freedom Caucus Member, Rep. Jim Jordan of Ohio, was a part of the sham hearings today for the Inspector General, Michael Horowitz and the FBI Director Christopher Wray. Jordan held their feet to the fire asking the questions that no one else would. He has been an outspoken voice for the people, unlike so many others in Congress who choose to ignore the facts.

On Tuesday, June 19, 2018 at 10:00 a.m., the House Committees on the Judiciary and Oversight and Government Reform will hold a joint hearing on “Oversight of the FBI and DOJ Actions in Advance of the 2016 Election.” At the hearing, Inspector General Michael Horowitz will testify before the Committees on the findings of the forthcoming report on Justice Department and FBI actions in advance of the 2016 presidential election.

In October 2017, the House Judiciary Committee and House Oversight and Government Reform Committee announced a joint investigation into decisions made by the Department of Justice in 2016 and 2017. To date, the Committees have interviewed several key witnesses and reviewed thousands of documents.

5:05 PM ET – Chris Farrell, Director of Investigations for Judicial Watch and Francisco Hernandez, an immigration attorney based out of Texas, will discuss the truth about the border, the DACA ‘kids’ and the issues that our nation faces if we do not close our borders. The need for border security has everything to do with protecting our children here in America, and one of the deadliest threats coming across illegally are drugs, specifically fentanyl and heroin. These are brought over by drug mules, many of whom are children as well. The only way to stop these illegal crossings is to enforce our laws.

“Why do we have a 200 percent year over year increase in the number of people coming across? Why do we have the biggest month to month increase between February and March that we’ve seen since 2011?

“And the answer to that is the activity of the Mexican cartels, who use these migrants as essentially a distraction to clog systems so they are able to funnel drugs across the border.

“In the last week, we saw two more political candidates in Mexico murdered in broad daylight. One a mayor running for Congress right across the Rio Grande. Another mayor who, you know, has been a reformer, fighting against the cartels. That brings the total to 113 political candidates in Mexico who have been murdered by the cartels in less than a year.
