Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-SC, is still raising has about how the FBI handled President Donald Trump’s 2016 campaign.

According to The Post and Courier after reports that Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-CA, was warned a few years ago that one of her staffers was a suspected Chinese spy, Graham wrote the FBI asking about how the situation with Feinstein was handled.

Graham said he is grateful for the work the FBI did to weed out the Feinstein staffer, however, he does not understand why the agency did not do the same thing when suspicions were raised in the Trump campaign camp.

Graham wants to know what the FBI has in place to warn current and future political candidates about foreign efforts to interfere in their campaigns.

Graham asked the FBI three focused questions:

*Why did the bureau brief Feinstein about a threat from one of her staffers but not Trump?

*What steps did the FBI take to inform Trump about possible improper ties between his staffers and the Russian government?

*What policies does the FBI have in place to warn current and future political candidates about foreign efforts to infiltrate their campaigns?
