Former New York City Police Commissioner Bernard Kerik says the terrifying premise of his new thriller “The Grave Above the Grave” – a horrific terrorist plot to launch another 9/11 – could come to pass if liberals continue trying to thwart President Donald Trump’s crack down on illegal immigration.
Kerik made his comments in an interview with nationally-syndicated conservative radio host Michael Savage on Friday.
“The Democratic Party, the socialist movement, is creating havoc on our national security. We have to stop this influx of illegals … because the bad guys know how to use our own failures against us,” Kerik told Savage.
“I think [Trump is] great, I think he’s a genuine guy, a super patriotic guy … He loves this country. If these guys would leave him alone he’d be able to do a lot better than he’s doing – and he’s doing phenomenally.”
In “The Grave Above the Grave,” Kerik’s first fiction work released this month, he tells the story of NYPD Commissioner Rick Raymond.
Raymond battles a cop killer with Islamic terror ties and uncovers a 9/11-like plot to launch another devastating attack on the city.
As he races against the clock, Raymond also must juggle the pressures of a grandstanding mayor, a disreputable reporter and a secret love — who just happens to be the district attorney.
Kerik, who was appointed to head the NYPD’s 34,000 uniformed officers by then-Mayor Rudy Giuliani, was in command when the Twin Towers were attacked on Sept. 11th, 2001 and ended up working closely with Robert Mueller, who was then the director of the FBI.
Kerik told Savage he was not impressed by Mueller, who is now special counsel in charge of the federal probe into Russian interference with the 2016 presidential election and whether the Trump campaign had any role in it.
“He was FBI director, but in my opinion, he was a mediocre kind of guy. A good FBI director in my opinion was Louis Freeh,” Kerik said, referring to the agency chief who served before Mueller.
Kerik also said he believes Mueller’s probe has gone too far.
“Not only do I think it went beyond the boundaries, it never should have been started,” Kerik told Savage.
Kerik’s "The Grave Above the Grave" has gotten early praise. Bestselling author Brad Thor calls the book an “an absolute homerun.”
