Downplaying "desperate attacks against Donald Trump," Rep. Peter King, R-N.Y., said there are "probably more evidence of links" between Russia and the Hillary Clinton campaign than there are with President Trump.

"There is probably more evidence of links between Russia and the Clinton campaign than anyone even could imagine between Russia and people involved in the Trump campaign," Rep. King told Sunday's "The Cats Roundtable."

Rep. King added there is "no basis" for the narrative against President Trump, pointing to past connections of Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta, which also do not prove any collusion.

"If you are going to be accusing the president of the United States of treason, you better know what you are talking about," Rep. King told host John Catsimatidis. "So far, none of these people know what they are talking about."

King admitted there is sometimes business done with Russia, but it does not mean there is any influencing of policy in Washington.

"I am not aware of any evidence whatsoever of any collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia or between Russia and the Trump campaign," King said.

King said President Trump, despite the narratives of being tied to Russia, is going to hold Russia's Vladimir Putin accountable when they meet, which has been reported will happen in July.

"Putin, whether it's the Ukraine, whether it's Syria, whether it's flying jets too close to United States, Putin has to realize he cannot be getting away with this, and that Donald Trump is very serious about standing up to Russia, which I am convinced he is," King said.
