Senate Judiciary Chairman Lindsey Graham confirmed new advancements in his FISA investigation, announcing he plans to call on 21 people to testify in front of committee investigators to determine whether or not FBI Director James Comey and Deputy Director Andrew McCabe were aware of the fact that the Steele dossier used to spy on Trump was debunked.
If true, witnesses could implicate top ranking FBI officials knowingly misleading FISA courts to spy on Donald Trump with illegal warrants.
“I find it impossible to believe that, once the case fell apart in January 2017, that McCabe and Comey were not told about it,” the Senator said during an appearance on Fox News on Monday.
“You’ve got to remember that the last two warrants were invalidated by the Department of Justice,” he added.
From Fox News:
GRAHAM: What I'm going to do is call the people who are involved in investigating the counterintelligence investigation. You have 21 people involved that I have named.
And I want to find out, what did McCabe and Comey know? When did they know that the dossier was unreliable? The Department of Justice has withdrawn the two warrant requests, saying they were illegal.
Lindsey Graham added that he hopes to question four individuals who were directly told that the Steele dossier was debunked, and ask them if they ever informed Comey or McCabe of the fact.
“I want to find out: did the four people who heard from the sub-source directly ever inform the top tier of the FBI the case fell apart? I’ll be astonished if they didn’t tell somebody above their pay grade,” he said.

Along with requesting a handful of witnesses, Senator Graham also asked Attorney General Barr to make DOJ official Gabirel Sanz-Rexach available to testify earlier today. This individual is an Obama holdover and was noted to be a key figure in the alleged FISA abuses by the IG report released last year.
