If you wanted someone to get to the down of the scandal surrounding the surveillance on Carter Page, it looks like Lindsey Graham is your man. From the Washington Examiner:
The Senate Judiciary Committee chairman promised to call four signers of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act warrants targeting Carter Page to testify in the wake of the Justice Department watchdog’s report on FISA abuse.
Sen. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina told CBS News that he would seek private depositions and public testimony from former FBI Director James Comey, former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, former Deputy Attorney General Sally Yates, and former Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein.
Wow. That will be riveting television. And there’s a good chance someone is going to slip up and admit something damaging. And they aren’t the only one:
The Republican committee leader also plans to call current FBI Director Christopher Wray, who took over the bureau after Comey was fired in 2017 and wasn’t involved in approving FISA applications on former Trump associate Page.
I’ve seen a lot of people question whether Wray is a devoted enough Trump loyalist, so I’m sure they’ll love to see him questioned about just what the FBI discovered while investigating the FISA warrant against Carter Page.

That’s it for Friday, onto the weekend!
Have an open thread. Here’s some comment fodder:
SCOOP: Multiple Sources tell @FoxNews that @realDonaldTrump is planning to take a lap at the @DISupdates Daytona International Speedway in the “Beast” presidential limo ahead of the Daytona 500. It’s not 100%, but that is the plan at the moment.

Wouldn’t you like to be a fly on the wall of that conversation….
