“I am not aware of any evidence whatsoever of any collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia or between Russia and the Trump campaign,” stated Rep. Peter King (R-N.Y.) on a Sunday radio interview with John Catsimatidis on New York’s AM 970. He added, “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.”
King also discussed Trump’s decision to fire FBI Director James Comey, noting that senior officials in the FBI would be the ones dealing with the nuances of an investigation relating to Russia, not Comey.
“Putin, whether it’s the Ukraine, whether it’s Syria, whether it’s flying jets too close to the 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,” said the lawmaker, noting that he believes that Trump will stand up to Putin in the future.
Critics who continuously call for the impeachment of President Trump be warned, said King. “If you are going to be accusing the president of the United States of treason, you better know what you are talking about. So far, none of these people know what they are talking about.”
Rep. King is a member of the Homeland Security Committee and Chairman of the Sub-Committee on Counterterrorism and Intelligence.
