South Carolina Senator Lindsey Graham calls for an investigation into allegations of systemic anti-Trump bias at the Obama-Era DOJ and FBI.

The Republican announced plans Thursday, to get in touch with Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, to appoint an independent counsel to look into the accusations.

Graham went on to criticize Rosenstein for failing to look into the matter himself, saying the Strzok-Page texts alone “scream for the need of a special counsel.”

The FBI fired Peter Strzok in August, about a month after he was grilled on Capitol Hill for sending anti-Trump texts while investigating alleged Russian collusion.

“So you hadn’t interviewed anyone, you’re investigating this alleged Russian collusion with the Trump campaign, you’re the lead investigator, you originated the investigation, you’re the point of contact, you drafted the document, and here you are before you’ve interviewed a single solitary witness saying F Trump.” – Rep. Trey Gowdy (R) South Carolina

Graham did not give a deadline for when he would send his request to Rosenstein, but hinted it may come in the next few weeks.
