Congressman says Flynn victim of political assassination
Administration sources have expressed concerns that elements of the “intelligence-industrial complex” are trying to discredit Donald Trump to forcibly remove him from office.
“I think there’s a point there, and there are a number of different people on Capitol Hill and in the administration who I’ve talked about who are concerned that there is, in fact, this intelligence-industrial complex that is trying to take out Donald Trump or somehow discredit him, or get under and disqualify him or some of his officials that are working for him,” said Fox News host Bret Baier during an interview with Melissa Francis.
“It’s a real issue, and it is something that Sean Spicer got to right there in that answer.”
Iowa Congressman Steven King argued that the “political assassination” of Michael Flynn was the result of actions by elements of the intelligence community who do not want Donald Trump to succeed.
“It’s clear that there are people within the intelligence community who disagree with President Trump, who don’t want to see his administration succeed — that’s part of the configuration of these timed leaks that have come out,” he said on CNN.
