Video: Rep. Peter King: ‘Severe, Serious Abuses’ by FBI, CIA in Russia Probe ‘Going to Come Out’

Rep. Peter King, R-N.Y., said he is “confident” that when Attorney General Bill Barr concludes his investigation of the origins of the investigation of President Trump’s 2016 campaign, the American people will learn that the FBI and CIA under the Obama administration engaged in foul play.

President Trump and his supporters have questioned how the investigation started in the first place, accusing the FBI of carrying it out under false pretenses. King is among those leveling such allegations.

Rep. Peter King, R-N.Y., said he is “confident” that when Attorney General Bill Barr concludes his investigation of the origins of the investigation of President Trump’s 2016 campaign, the American people will learn that the FBI and CIA under the Obama administration engaged in foul play.

President Trump and his supporters have questioned how the investigation started in the first place, accusing the FBI of carrying it out under false pretenses. King is among those leveling such allegations.

But it is not just the FBI that King believes engaged in underhanded tactics. He believes U.S. intelligence was involved as well.

“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,” he said.

A recent RealClearInvestigations report of Mueller's findings pointed to various inconsistencies, as well as the influence of former CIA Director John Brennan, an outspoken critic of President Trump. That report also noted that Mueller's team did not personally investigate the hacking of Democratic National Committee emails, but used a DNC contractor to determine that Russia was behind it.

King is no longer on the House Intelligence Committee, but current members will have an opportunity to ask Mueller about this when he testifies before the committee on July 17.

Mueller was subpoenaed by Democrats, who have discussed impeaching Trump over evidence in Mueller’s report they believe support a case for obstruction of justice. Republicans, meanwhile, are looking forward to asking Mueller about the origins of the investigation, as well as exactly when Mueller determined that the evidence did not support claims that Trump’s campaign conspired with Russia.
