Rep. Paul Gosar said on Friday that the House intelligence memo on alleged FBI wrongdoing showed “clear and convincing evidence of treason” by law enforcement officials, regardless of persisting concerns in the intelligence community over its credibility.
Gosar, in a statement, blasted the FBI’s use of a surveillance warrant to gather information about a former Trump campaign adviser, Carter Page. The GOP legislator cited the document in accusing former FBI Director James Comey, former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, former Deputy Attorney General Sally Yates and current Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein of breaking the law.
“The full-throated adoption of this illegal misconduct and abuse of FISA by James Comey, Andrew McCabe, Sally Yates and Rod Rosenstein is not just criminal but constitutes treason,” Gosar declared in a statement.
Gosar said he would press Attorney General Jeff Sessions to seek “criminal prosecution against these traitors to our nation.”
Attorney General Jeff Sessions said Friday he would make sure the Justice Department deals with the issues raised in the House Intelligence Committee memo about the abuse of surveillance authorities.
“Congress has made inquiries concerning an issue of great importance for the country and concerns have been raised about the Department’s performance,” he said after its release. “I have great confidence in the men and women of this Department. But no Department is perfect.”
“Accordingly, I will forward to appropriate DOJ components all information I receive from Congress regarding this,” he said. “I am determined that we will fully and fairly ascertain the truth.”
“We work for the American people and are accountable to them and those they have elected,” Sessions added. “We will meet that responsibility.”
