Former Republican Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee called intelligence abuses within the FBI “disgusting,” on “Fox & Friends” Friday, and accused the agency of colluding with the Department of Justice to bring down President Donald Trump.

“We have the most disgusting both conspiracy and cover-up and I just don’t know if Americans fully understand what’s happened here,” Huckabee said. “What’s happened is the highest levels of the FBI and the Department of Justice conspired and colluded to bring down a president.” (RELATED: Mike Huckabee Mocks Media For Calling Trump Treasonous)

“Think about that for a moment,” he continued. “The highest levels of government — these weren’t political operatives, these weren’t people from the [Democratic National Committee] — they conspired with people from the DNC. They used money that the DNC and Hillary [Clinton] supplied. These were our taxpayer-funded government officials who were trying to bring down an elected president in our own country.”

Huckabee said if those responsible aren’t held accountable, America will be lost.

“If somebody doesn’t hold them accountable for this, if we don’t unravel it and if some of those smug arrogant people sitting on the other networks this morning around their little tables, talking about the president and dismissing him — if they don’t open their eyes and see what’s happening, we’ve lost our country,” he declared. “I know that sounds mellow dramatic, but I’m telling you, it is that serious. It truly is.”

Huckabee also said oversight investigations have become purely partisan and claimed the GOP can’t rely on its Democratic counterparts to play fair, if Congress was asked to look into it.

“This is not like Watergate when Democrats and Republicans worked together to uncover things that were hurtful to the country,” he concluded. “These are people in the Democratic Party leadership that are only wanting to protect the Democrats and protect the people who conspired and covered up. And they don’t want to uncover criminal activity and that is a real threat.”
