Addressing the FBI collusion probe hearings on his nationally syndicated radio talk show Friday, host Mark Levin said Republicans in the House and Senate have been focusing on the wrong issue and the wrong people and should be holding hearings on the “epic failure” of the Obama administration to protect America.

“They were [the Obama administration was] responsible for protecting our nation from the Russians,” Levin said.

“And they didn’t,” Levin said later. “They failed. …

“The Senate Intelligence Committee and the House Intelligence Committee should be holding hearings on the epic failures of the prior administration to protect the American electoral system from an enemy.”

Levin’s comments come after former FBI Director James Comey testified in front of the U.S. Senate intelligence committee on the agency’s Russian investigation.

Here is part of the transcript from Levin’s show on June 9:

“We have the Russians, Mr. Putin, our enemy, interfering with our election in 2016. So, I’m sitting here thinking to myself, ‘Well what in the world did Donald Trump have to do with that?’

“Nothing.

“What in the world did his campaign have to do with that?

“Nothing.

“What in the world did his transition team have to do with that?

“Nothing.

“Who was President of the U.S. in 2016?

“Barrack Obama.

“Who was the Attorney General in 2016?

“Loretta Lynch.

“Who ran the FBI in 2016?

“James Comey.

“Who was the National Intelligence Director in 2016?

“James Clapper. Who was the CIA director in 2016?

“Brennan.

“Who was the National Security Advisor in 2016?

“Susan Rice.

“Who was the Secretary of State in 2016?

“John Kerry.

“They were responsible for protecting our nation from the Russians. They were responsible for protecting our voting system from the Russians. They were responsible for protecting the DNC database and the RNC database from the Russians.

“And they didn’t. They failed.

“And according to Mark Warner, the Russians’ success in tapping into our system – it’s not in the outcome – even into our state voting systems was far more extensive than you and I know.

“What we have here is a complete collapse during the Obama administration of our law enforcement and intelligence systems to protect us from the Russians during the course of an election.

“Now they can talk about collusion and obstruction all they want. When the hell are the Republicans on Capitol Hill going to focus on the right thing?

“Forget about the media. We know where they are. They’re hatemongers.

“The Senate Intelligence Committee and the House Intelligence Committee should be holding hearings on the epic failures of the prior administration to protect the American electoral system from an enemy.”
