(CNSNews.com) - When it comes to investigations of things past, two sides can play that game. That's the message from Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.), who is expected to chair the Senate Judiciary Committee in the next Congress.
Earlier this week, Graham said yes, he "totally" will investigate how the FBI handled the Trump-Russia investigation as well as the way the Obama Justice Department and the FBI handled the Hillary Clinton email investigation.
Graham elaborated Wednesday night, when he appeared on Sean Hannity's show:
You know, to my Democratic friends, if you want to look backward, we're all going to look backward.
I want to know if the FBI reached a conclusion along with the Department of Justice that Hillary Clinton didn't commit a crime. Was it because of political bias? If you really wanted to stop Trump, how in the world could you indict her? Was the reason she wasn't indicted is because they wanted to make sure that they stop Trump, and how can you stop him if you indict her?
Did the Department of Justice and the FBI use a document paid for by the Democratic Party, researched by a foreign agent, to get a warrant against an American citizen that was inappropriate, potentially unlawful?
We need a special counsel to look at all of this. But I intend to look at it. I'm going to look at it.
If you're going to keep plowing everything up in 2016, count me in. If you want to look forward, I'll look forward. If you want to look back, we're gonna all look back to everything and everybody, not just Trump.
Graham also said he doesn't believe President Trump is going to fire Special Counsel Robert Mueller, and all the Democrats' hype surrounding what might happen "is a manufactured problem.
As chairman of the Judiciary Committee, Graham said he wants to put as many conservative judges on the bench as he can. "If I'm chairman next year, we are going to do judges, judges, and more judges," he said.
