Graham, in an interview on Sunday, said he’s looking to declassify a document which could confirm authorities knew the “Steele Dossier” lacked substantial independent verification.

He claims the Dossier’s facts were never verified but the FBI and Department of Justice still used its contents as evidence to obtain warrants to conduct surveillance on the Trump campaign.

This comes as the DOJ’s Inspector General is expected to publish the findings of his own investigation into the start of the Russia probe sometime in 2019.
