Two Republican senators on Thursday released hundreds of pages of documents pertaining to the FBI’s Crossfire Hurricane probe, alleging that “agency bureaucrats” refused to hand over more information.

Sens. Ron Johnson (R-Wis.) and Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) released the documents as part of their investigation into the FBI—starting from the end of President Barack Obama’s administration—about how they surveilled President Donald Trump’s campaign. Ultimately, a special prosecutor found that Trump’s campaign did not collude with Russia.

“For years, the American people have demanded answers to questions regarding the FBI’s Crossfire Hurricane investigation and its targeting of the Trump campaign, the presidential transition, and the Trump administration,” said Grassley, the head of the Senate Finance Committee, and Johnson, the head of the Homeland Security Committee. “Our committees have sought to uncover and expose misconduct by calling on agencies to declassify and produce text messages, internal emails, and other investigative material, which in turn we have made public.”

They argued that it’s necessary to release documents about the probe so the public has an idea about what happened.

“Although agency bureaucrats have fought tooth and nail to keep records hidden, our commitment to transparency has never wavered. The documents we are releasing today are the product of our continued fight for transparency,” the senators added. “These documents are far less than what we have requested, but we are making them public so the American people can decide for themselves what wrongdoing did and did not occur.”

The DOJ’s inspector general, Michael Horowitz, issued a rep ort last year finding that the FBI committed a series of errors or omissions when it surveilled 2016 Trump campaign aide Carter Page, who said last month he’s filing a $75 million lawsuit against the FBI, DOJ, and former FBI Director James Comey.

Johnson, in a Senate Homeland Security hearing on Thursday discussing the documents, said that media outlets have failed in their responsibility to cover their investigation into the FBI and DOJ.

“This is troubling and just amazes me how the press has turned a blind eye to it,” he said during a Senate hearing Thursday, while also referring to reports of ties between Democrat presidential candidate Joe Biden’s family and Chinese Communist Party (CCP)-linked firm CEFC, which “disappeared off the face of the Earth” several years ago.

Johnson and Grassley have also sought and released documents suggesting Joe Biden’s son, Hunter, had an extensive relationship with a CCP-linked billionaire. Last month, the senators claimed that the Biden family had stronger ties with Chinese foreign nationals than previously expected.

Johnson on Thursday further stated that the FBI and DOJ took no action on irregularities that were uncovered during probes of the FBI’s Crossfire Hurricane program, arguing that investigations in the political realm are “totally backward.” He posited that Congress should first investigate politicians, not intelligence agencies filled with bureaucrats.

“It’s far more important to expose this so the public knows what’s happened,” Johnson said, as opposed to a criminal prosecution “to put somebody in jail.” The alleged corruption should concern every member of Congress regardless of political affiliation, he added.

Georgia DA opens criminal probe of Trump call urging secretary of state to find votes

The top prosecutor in Fulton County, Georgia, has opened a criminal investigation of a phone call to Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger by then-President Donald Trump, who last month urged the official to “find” him enough votes to overturn his election loss to Joe Biden.

Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis sent a letter to Raffensperger and other state government officials asking that they preserve documents related to Trump’s highly unusual call, a state official with knowledge of the letter told NBC News.

Raffensperger’s office confirmed to CNBC that it received the letter Wednesday, but declined to comment further. The letter comes as the Senate is conducting an impeachment trial for Trump that could end with the ex-president being banned from ever running for the White House again.

The letter says the request is part of a criminal probe that “includes, but is not limited to, potential violations of Georgia law prohibiting the solicitation of election fraud, the making of false statements to state and local government bodies, conspiracy, racketeering, violation of oath of office and any involvement in violence or threats related to the election’s administration.”

The letter was sent two days after Raffensperger’s office opened its own investigation of Trump’s Jan. 2 phone call to the secretary of state.

In that call, Trump told Raffensperger, “All I want to do is this: I just want to find 11,780 votes.”

That was the number of votes Trump needed to overtake Biden’s lead in Georgia, one of several he needed to reverse Trump’s Electoral College loss.

At the time, Trump and his allies were promoting a series of baseless claims that he had lost the election due to widespread ballot fraud in states including Georgia.

The call to Raffensperger occurred four days before Trump urged supporters at a rally near the White House to help him fight to overturn the election results by getting Congress or Vice President Mike Pence to refuse to confirm Biden’s win.

After that rally, thousands of Trump supporters rioted outside and then inside the U.S. Capitol, where Congress was meeting in a joint session to confirm the results.

Five people died in connection with the riot, including a Capitol police officer.

Trump was impeached by the House of Representatives for inciting the riot.

His trial in the Senate began Tuesday with a debate over whether a former president could be tried after leaving office.

Evidence in the case is being presented today.
