Rep. Peter King: 'Severe, serious abuses' by FBI, CIA in Russia probe 'going to come out'

Rep. Peter King: 'Severe, serious abuses' by FBI, CIA in Russia probe 'going to come out' | 07 July 2019 | 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. "There was no legal basis at all for them to begin the investigation of his campaign," King said in a Friday interview with New York radio host John Catsimatidis, "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."
