Rep. Pete King: McCabe, Rosenstein Probe Justified

By    |   Monday, 18 February 2019 01:22 PM

Rep. Pete King said Monday he agrees with Sen. Lindsey Graham's call for a hearing on claims made by former acting FBI Director Andrew McCabe that deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein was serious about wearing a wire while talking to President Donald Trump.

"What was their mindset?" the New York Republican told Fox News' "America's Newsroom." "As soon as Rosenstein said that, and McCabe said he thinks Rosenstein was serious about wearing a wire into the office of the president of the United States, McCabe should have considered locking up Rosenstein or should have gone immediately and said he should be removed from office."

But to listen to someone "seriously talk" about wearing a wire to "violate the privacy of the president of the United States and the most sensitive, important meetings is absolutely disgraceful," King continued.

He said he also thinks that anyone who was in the room discussing an investigation into Trump should be put under oath and asked "what were they thinking? What arrogance do they have? Where do they think they have the authority to investigate the president of the United States?"

At the end, though, Trump benefits from the news about McCabe, said King.

"When he says 'drain the swamp,' people think he is exaggerating," said King. "If you are people at the highest levels of the FBI and the Justice Department talking about removing the president of the United States, that justifies everything the president said about the swamp."
