(CNSNews.com) -- In reference to the intelligence memo released last Friday that revealed apparent malfeasance and politcal bias at the FBI and Department of Justice (DOJ), House Rep. Paul Gosar (R-Ariz.) said the document showed "clear and convincing evidence of treason" and that he is sending a letter to Attorney General Jeff Sessions seeking "prosecution" against the FBI's James Comey and Andrew McCabe and the DOJ's Sally Yates and Rod Rosenstein.
Rep. Gosar, now in his fourth term, also criticized the members of Congress who tried to keep the memo from the public. He specifically noted that Sen. Jeff Flake (R-Ariz.) "cast his lot with the Democrats and those that attack true patriots," and added, "good riddance."
In a statement issued via Twitter on Feb. 2, the day the intelligence memo was released, Rep. Gosar said, "the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence memorandum on the FBI abuse of FISA warrants and targeting a sitting President is not just evidence of incompetence but clear and convincing evidence of treason."
"The FBI knowingly took false information from the Democratic National Committee and the Hillary Clinton campaign and then used it to smear Donald Trump in order to hurt his campaign," said Gosar.
"This is third world politics where the official government agencies are used as campaign attack dogs," he said.
Gosar continued, "The full-throated adoption of this illegal misconduct and abuse of FISA by James Comey, Andrew McCabe, Sally Yates and Rosenstein is not just criminal but constitutes treason. I will be leading a letter to the Attorney General seeking criminal prosecution against these traitors to our nation."
"Finally. Let me say this to those members of Congress who fought so hard to keep the truth from the American public," said Gosar. "Your efforts to protect a corrupt organization are duly noted. I am not surprised Sen. Flake has again cast his lot with the Democrats and those that attack true patriots. Good riddance.
James Comey was the FBI director was 2013 to May 2017, when President Donald Trump fired him. Andrew McCabe, a hardcore leftist, was the deputy attorney general, under Comey, who was forced out last week just prior to the memo's release. Sally Yates, a liberal Democrat and anti-Trumper, was deputy attorney general in the Obama administration and the acting attorney general in January 2017; she was fired by President Trump for refusing to legally defend an executive order on immigration. Rod Rosenstein is the deputy attorney general.
The intelligence memo confirms that Comey, McCabe, Yates, and Rosenstein signed off on FISA court applications to obtain warrants to spy on Trump campaign adviser Carter Page. They also used a fake dossier paid for by the Clinton campaign and the Democratic National Committee to obtain those FISA warrants. McCabe testified behind closed doors in December that the FBI would not have sought the FISA warrant without the dossier information.
According to the memo, the DOJ/FBI did not include any of the political background of the dossier or that it was ultimately paid for by Trump's opponents in 2016 when they applied for the warrants.
