Four years after the 2016 election, Senate Republicans eager to stroke Donald Trump’s ego launch an attack on the FBI during a hearing with former acting director Andrew McCabe.

The hearing, led by Senator Lindsey Graham of South Carolina, a close ally of President Trump’s, was a recounting of perceived injustices that the president and his supporters have amplified over the investigation into the 2016 Trump campaign’s ties to Russia. They included the botched applications to wiretap the former Trump campaign adviser Carter Page, the treatment of the former national security adviser Michael T. Flynn and a notorious dossier about purported Trump-Russia links.

Senator John Cornyn of Texas accused the F.B.I. of going “rogue,” while Senator Marsha Blackburn of Tennessee said the bureau had a “culture of corruption and cover-up.” Senator Josh Hawley of Missouri described the investigation as the “biggest scandal in the history of the F.B.I.”

The New York Times

The DOJ found unmistakable errors last year in evidence the FBI used to legally spy on Trump campaign adviser Carter Page. However, the DOJ report identified the FBI agent responsible for the errors. It was not Andrew McCabe.

The point of the hearing seems to be for show, and the show is for an audience of one: Donald Trump, who is still obsessed with proving that he’s not a Russian asset.
