Rep. Peter King, R-N.Y., on Sunday called on FBI deputy director Andrew McCabe to “step aside” amid apparent conflicts of interest and “contradictions” over his alleged political bias.

In remarks on Fox News’ “Sunday Morning Futures,” King, a member of the House Intelligence and Homeland Security committees, said he’s worked with McCabe over the years, but now, “there’s been so many questions raised.”

”The issues that come up in the last 16 months regarding the Hillary Clinton investigation, regarding the opening of the investigation of the [President Donald] Trump campaign …appear to be conflicts of interest that Andrew Mccabe has,” he said. “It's better for everyone that he does step aside.”

“Maybe there's more to it than that but at the very least because of these apparent conflicts and contradictions, I think the time has come.”

King said Gov. Terry McAuliffe’s political alliance with Hillary and Bill Clinton “and the fact he was steering… $700,000 … to Andrew McCabe's wife in a hotly contested race in Virginia, to me that's such an apparent conflict on its face.”

“Andrew McCabe having any role in [the investigation of Hillary Clinton’s email investigation] at all to me goes against all of the ethical standards we should be having in the FBI and federal government,” he said.
