Republican Senator Chuck Grassley (R-IA) has dropped the hammer on Hillary Clinton, saying he is “outraged” by the allegations that have emerged from Special Counsel John Durham’s investigations.
Grassley, the ranking member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, responded fiercely to the allegations that the Clinton campaign spied on President Donald Trump’s White House servers.
The senator accused Hillary Clinton of “abusing access to govt info” in an effort to weaponize the data against the sitting President of the United States.
“In 2016 the Hillary Clinton Campaign spied on Trump Campaign,” Grassley said:
“After she lost, the Clinton Campaign spied on the Trump Admin by abusing federal govt contracts and by abusing their access to govt info.”
Grassley then took aim at the Democrats’ allies in the corporate media who have turned a blind eye to the whole scandal.
“Meanwhile, mainstream media ignores all of it,” he blasted.
“The American ppl should be OUTRAGED – I am.”

Grassley also wrote a letter with Ron Johnson to Attorney General Merrick Garland demanding he declassify all records related to the FBI’s original Trump-Russia probe.
“We remain concerned that over one year from the date then-President Trump directed the Justice Department to declassify certain Crossfire Hurricane records the Justice Department has not only failed to declassify a single page, the Department has failed to identify for Congress records that it knows with certainty to be covered by the declassification directive.
“Your letter noted that on July 9, 2021, the Department ‘offered to compare the documents we understand to be covered by the Memorandum with the documents that had been previously provided to Congress.’
“However, your letter also stated that the Department ‘has been taking steps to determine’ which documents can be disclosed and that review is ‘ongoing.’
“It is incumbent upon the Department to determine which records are covered by the declassification directive.
“When the Department is able to (1) identify with certainty the records subject to the declassification directive; (2) confirm the records are not those that have already been reviewed by our staff; and (3) agree that no improper redactions will be placed on those records, our staff stand ready to review in camera prior to production to Congress.
“Absent those conditions, our staff should not have to spend potentially multiple days and countless hours in the Department’s classified facility only to play a guessing game with the Department about what document may or may not be covered by the declassification directive and potentially review records that have already been produced to Congress.
“Our oversight efforts are based on our unyielding belief that the American people deserve to know the complete truth about the Crossfire Hurricane investigation.
“We request a detailed response with respect to those questions and a commitment to the aforementioned conditions no later than March 1, 2022.
