Graham says intel officials concerned about exposure of 2016 misbehavior

Amid investigations into potential misbehavior by intelligence officials during the 2016 presidential campaign, Sen. Lindsey Graham said Sunday, “It doesn’t surprise me that the people we are looking at, they don’t want transparency.”

The South Carolina Republican told “Fox News Sunday” host Chris Wallace he agreed with President Trump’s decision to give Attorney General William Barr “full and complete authority” to work with the intelligence community in declassifying documents related to the origins of the Russia investigation and the conduct of the Justice Department and the FBI.

Barr’s move has drawn strong criticism from former FBI Director James Comey, ex-CIA Director John Brennan, and former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper. Each has said the declassification process could lead agencies vulnerable to revelations about intelligence sources and methods.

But Graham, chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, said it’s the ex-intelligence and Justice Department officials who should be on the defensive about their conduct in the 2016 campaign and early into Trump’s tenure.
