Steve King: Russian Election Interference Just 'CNN Narrative'

Rep. Steve King, R-Iowa, denounced reports of Russian interference in the November election as a "CNN narrative," and not proven by intelligence agents.

"I think it's a CNN narrative that the allegations that the Russians were trying to influence the U.S. election between Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton," the congressman said on CNN, according to the Washington Examiner.

"There was dissent among that, and furthermore, I sat in on that classified briefing, and they divulged not one fact," he added. "They only gave us their opinions. So we're back at the same place again. We need facts to work with."

King was then asked if he accepts the general opinion of the intelligence community.

"I don't know," he said. "I don't know whether they meddled or not. I want to see a transcript. I want to hear some audio. I want to see a chronological timeline that we can say, these things we know that are facts."

"Because what we're dealing with are opinions, and obviously now, they're opinions of people from the intelligence community that are the direct enemies of Donald Trump," King continued.

The New York Times released a report Tuesday alleging that President Donald Trump’s associates, both in his campaign and out, "had repeated contacts with senior Russian intelligence officials in the year before the election, according to four current and former American officials," who claim that U.S. intelligence and law enforcement agencies intercepted the communications.
