Republican Rep. Mark Meadows of North Carolina thinks former FBI Director James Comey lied under oath while testifying before Congress and believes an investigation is now warranted.
“We have a number of documents. A growing body of evidence that now would suggest that Director Comey, who under sworn testimony, a number of times, said there was no coordination between [former Attorney General] Loretta Lynch’s DOJ and our FBI investigation,” Meadows said on “Fox & Friends Thursday. “Not only was that false, but we know that over and over again now, we have emails that would suggest that, that testimony was false and at best mislead the American public.”
“At worse [Comey] was lying to Congress,” he said.
“We’ve got Director Comey out there saying well, you know, I was a boy scout, I was above reproach. Now we have evidence that would suggest that that’s not accurate,” he added. “So we have to look at it further.”
The FBI scandal goes beyond the texts between FBI agent Peter Strzok and attorney Lisa Page, Meadows said.
“What we have is beyond just the two of them though,” Meadows said. “It’s other people within the FBI and DOJ who know that the testimony that Director Comey gave before Congress was not entirely the whole truth and nothing but the truth.”
