The Russia’s probe was “a coordinated effort from certain people on the top level of the government” after President Trump, it must be checked, Rep. Peter King, said Friday.
A day after the publication of the redacted Muller report, the Long Island Republican, told Fox News’ “America’s Newsroom” on Friday, he started the questions, why the investigation was, in the first place.
King said that, as a member of the House Intelligence Committee, which conducted its own probe in Russia interference, while the 2016 presidential elections, he never saw any evidence “whatsoever” of the agreement.
“An investigation to law enforcement–they called it” counter-intelligence–but it was an investigation to law enforcement with complaints and everything else is based on the infirmities of the evidence,” king chlichste said the FBI-Russia probe.

He is of the opinion that for people like the former FBI Director, James Comey and former Deputy FBI Director, Andrew McCabe, the investigation was just an excuse to probe the trump card.
“That was said to me a coordinated effort that will be investigated should by certain people at the highest level in the government, and to find out how it came to be,” king.
“I would say the same thing if it was Hillary Clinton or Bernie Sander, or anyone else,” he added.
King said it remains a mystery even now, as the Russia probe began.
