These type of claims are concerning that the executive branch of the government can be weaponized against an incoming President who's ideals are not the same as the sitting president.
Rep. Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, touted Monday the upcoming release of Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz's report on the FBI's alleged abuse of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) during the Russia investigation.
The comments came after House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., promised Sunday on Fox News Channel that the guilty parties--including former FBI leaders James Comey and Andrew McCabe--will be held accountable.
"We came the closest ever to this country having a coup, and now we need accountability," he said on "Sunday Morning Futures."
“Kevin’s characterization of this is exactly right,” Jordan said, pointing to the actions already uncovered by Horowitz.
