Pete King Compares FBI's Anti-Trump Bias to KKK

(Fox News' "America's Newsroom")

The FBI's alleged bias of President Donald Trump is similar to a jury of Klansmen wrongfully convicting a black person, Rep. Peter King, R-N.Y., said Wednesday during an appearance on Fox News.

King was responding to a question on what he thought the most significant finding was so far from Department of Justice General Michael Horowitz's testimony before Congress.

Horowitz led the probe into the FBI and Justice Department's handling of the Clinton email investigation. His report, released last week, was critical of former FBI Director James Comey's handling of the Clinton probe but said no evidence political bias tainted the investigation in the months and days leading up to Trump's election. 

"I think the fact that he was able to repeat just how many abuses there were, how much bias there was," King told Fox News host Bill Hemmer on "America’s Newsroom."

"Now, whether or not he concludes that the overall findings are biased, when you have everyone – almost everyone who's involved in the process being biased, to me, it'd be like if you had 12 Klansmen on a jury, and an African-American was convicted, and the evidence wasn't there. Maybe you can't find the bias in the courtroom or in the jury room, but you know that those people are biased going in, and that's the way I see this with the FBI."

Trump disputed the IG report, declaring the FBI was biased "at the top level" and "plotting against my election."

"The end result was wrong; there was total bias," he told reporters last week.

"Comey was the ring leader of this whole, you know, den of thieves – it was a den of thieves," he said.
