Republicans have frequently asserted the FBI’s Russia probe was really a Democrat-led means of going after President Trump, which led to a number of security compromises.
During the hearing, senators questioned former FBI Assistant Director of Intelligence Kevin Brock, who argued the partisan investigation violated FBI regulations.
“These disgraced former FBI executives never should have opened the Crossfire Hurricane Investigation,” Brock stated. “They did not, despite the DoJ inspector general’s subsequent comments to the contrary, have adequate predication for starting an intrusive investigation of U.S. citizens.”

Witnesses confirmed ‘Crossfire Hurricane’ was an abuse of power and merely served as a witch hunt against President Trump.
