On Friday Rep. Peter King, R-N.Y., came out with some interesting predictions on a New York radio show saying that there “no legal basis” for the Russian meddling investigation into the Trump campaign.King spoke with New York radio host John Catsimatidis and said,
“There was no legal basis at all for them to begin the investigation of his campaign, and the way they carried it forward and the way information was leaked, the improper applications they filed in the FISA court to get surveillance, all of this is going to come out.”
Attorney General William Barr is looking into the origins of the investigation and, along with others, I believe that there is much to expose from within the FBI and the CIA.The big question is allegedly how information was leaked and how the warrant was obtained under the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) to monitor former Trump campaign adviser Carter Page.
Republicans claimed that federal authorities did not fully disclose their reliance on an unverified dossier compiled by Christopher Steele.
That document, referred to as the Steele Dossier, was part of opposition research for Hillary Clinton’s campaign.Democrats, on the other hand, do not believe that anything improper happened.
Besides this, King is of the belief that special counsel Robert Mueller knew that there was no collusion long before his report came out.King said,
“I think that the Mueller people had obligations to tell the president, to tell the country, to tell the world, that there was no collusion whatsoever as soon as they found out there was none. This isn’t like you’re dealing with some local drug dealer … You’re talking about, whether you like him or not, he is the leader of the country. The leader of the Free World. And they let this hang over him for at least a year. It was wrong not to make it known.”
Allegedly, people have come forward to speak about misconduct after not doing so earlier on. At least one witness outside the Justice Department and FBI started cooperating with the investigation.
When Barr ordered U.S. Attorney John Durham to lead a separate investigation into the origins of the bureau’s 2016 Russia case that laid the foundation for the “probe,” the information started to flow.King stated,
“Just from evidence I’ve seen over the last several years being on the Intelligence Committee, being a member of Congress, there’s no doubt to me there were severe serious abuses that were carried out in the FBI, and I believe the top levels of the CIA.”
According to King, the failed narrative of Trump campaign conspiracy has gone on too long. Mueller let the president of the United States work under a “cloud” for at least a year, when in fact, he found no evidence of collusion.The report was way overdue.
Mueller is set to testify before Congress on July 17th. King is no longer on the House Intelligence committee but current members will be asking questions.
Folks, the show has begun. Get out the popcorn and prepare to be enlightened.
If you’ve been waiting for justice to be served, this show will be entertaining and it should give you some satisfaction, at long last.
