Rep. Pete King: Brennan 'Evil Force' Throughout Mueller Probe

By    |   Thursday, 28 March 2019 02:56 PM EDT

Former CIA Director John Brennan has been an "evil force" throughout the Trump-Russia investigation, Rep. Pete King said Thursday, adding he's suspected him of rigging intelligence reports against President Donald Trump during the 2016 campaign and during his transition period.

"Since then, he's repeatedly been on television and in the media talking about collusion," the New York Republican told Fox News' "America's Newsroom." "Now he says maybe he misinterpreted the evidence. If that's the case, it means number one, either he's a liar, or number two, he wasn't smart enough to be CIA director."

Brennan "disgraced his office," King said.

"For him to say the president's guilty of collusion, of treason, that, to me, was evil to say unless he had absolute proof. As it turns out, he had none," King said.

His comments followed claims by Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., that Brennan had been pushing for the discredited Christopher Steele dossier created about Trump during the election to be attached to an intelligence report to help legitimize it.

The lawmaker also said that if Brennan and other Obama-era intelligence officials knew that the dossier had been funded by Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton's campaign and the Democratic National Committee, then they should not have been in office.

"I hope I would say the same thing if this were done against President Obama or Hillary Clinton if she had been elected," King said. "This is wrong to have the law enforcement and intelligence agencies of the United States conspiring to unseat and to bring down a duly elected president of the United States when they know there's no evidence there."
