GOP Rep. King: ‘Serious abuses’ carried out by FBI, CIA are ‘going to come out’ of Barr’s probe
Ordinarily, we don’t get too excited these days when we hear a politician make a prediction about what will and will not come out of the ongoing “Spygate” origins probe being conducted by Attorney General William Barr and U.S. Attorney John Durham.
But that’s because we often hear such predictions coming from the usual suspects who belong to the House Freedom Caucus.
Don’t get us wrong, many of those members have doggedly pursued details and leads in this massive scandal involving an operation to literally depose a sitting, duly elected president. But all smoke and no fire gets old.
So when someone like Rep. Peter King (R-N.Y.), who isn’t prone to making predictions about what’s coming down the pipe, makes one, it’s noteworthy and newsworthy.
During a weekend appearance on John Catsimatidis’ New York AM 970 radio show, “The Cats Roundtable,” King said he believes “serious” and “severe abuses” by the FBI and CIA during the 2016 presidential run are “going to come out” following declassification of top-secret documents by President Donald Trump that are related to former Justice Department special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation.
He added that he’s “hopeful and confident” AG Barr [and Durham] will uncover the “bias” by the two agencies against then-candidate Donald Trump.
“There is no doubt to me there was severe, serious abuses that were carried out in the FBI and, I believe, top levels of the CIA against the president of the United States or, at that time, presidential candidate Donald Trump,” King told Catsimatidis.
“There was no legal basis at all for them to begin this investigation of his campaign and the way they carried it forward, and the way information was leaked.”
Continuing, King said, “The improper applications they filed in the FISA courts to get surveillance. All of this is going to come out. It’s going to show the bias, it’s going to show the baselessness of the investigation and how dangerous it is to democracy.
“I would say the same thing if this were done to Hillary Clinton or Bernie Sanders. It’s just wrong,” he added.
King is a member of the House Intelligence Committee, so he’s seen all of the smoking gun evidence. Yet he’s not been making appearances on cable news programs for months on end with the latest prediction about what is and isn’t about to ‘come out.
We know that Barr is investigating. We know that Durham is investigating. We know — well, we suspect — that criminal behavior occurred. We’re confident enough in what we’ve seen via open-source reporting to say that an actual coup attempt was made to unseat POTUS Trump.
What we now need to see are people suffering real consequences from those acts. King’s statements give us renewed hope.
