Rep. Liz Cheney is sounding off on the FBI after the agency released some very suspicious statements.
While appearing on ABC’s “This Week,” Cheney voiced her concerns that the FBI’s statements on the investigation into Russian election interference “sounds an awful lot like a coup.”
Speaking with host Martha Raddatz, Cheney sounded the alarm on text messages between FBI agent Peter Strzok and former FBI lawyer Lisa Page.
“I think what is really, crucially important to remember here is that you had Strzok and Page, who were in charge of launching this investigation, and they were saying things like, ‘We must stop this president. We need an insurance policy against this president,’” Cheney said.
“That in my view, when you have people who are in the highest echelons of the law enforcement of this nation saying things like that, that sounds an awful lot like a coup, and it could well be treason, and I think that we need to know more,” she revealed.
“Think about the fact that we had people that are at the highest levels of our law enforcement in this nation saying that they were going to stop a duly elected president of the United States, saying they needed an insurance policy against him, that is something that simply cannot happen,” Cheney continued.
It’s looking like Attorney General William Barr will have plenty to investigate now that President Trump has charged him with getting to the truth of the matter.
