The South Carolina republican said Monday the committee will investigate former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s private use of a private email server, and alleged abuse of the FISA Court by top Obama officials.

His announcement stirred dismay and anxiety among democrats. Senator Dick Durbin (D-Ill.) accused Graham of endorsing conspiracy theories, while fellow democrat Senator Sheldon Whitehouse (D-R.I.) called the probes a “political stunt.”

Graham responded saying looking into the issues are necessary to see the full picture of what happened during the 2016 presidential campaign.
