The federal investigators investigating the President Donald Trump, not Trump, are the ones who should be under investigation, former governor and political pundit Mike Huckabee says.
The investigation has become an assault on the presidency itself. If allowed to continue, political opponents will use every opportunity to impede and distract future presidents from their efforts to do their jobs, Huckabee said Friday in an interview on Fox News.
The use of federal agencies as a political weapon constitutes a frightening constitutional crisis that must be investigated and stopped, Huckabee said:
"This is really becoming an overgrown and outrageous assault on the presidency – not just Donald Trump – but, on the president’s ability to do his job. It needs to stop."
"If there’s any investigation that ought to be happening, it’s the investigation of the investigators – who, apparently, have abused their power, used their abilities as federal agencies as a political weapon.
"And, that is frightening. That is a constitutional crisis of great proportion and, Bill, that is something that we need to get to the bottom of."
