On Tuesday’s broadcast of MSNBC’s “MTP Daily,” House Freedom Caucus Chairman Representative Mark Meadows (R-NC) called for a special prosecutor to investigate the FBI.
Meadows said that the FBI has “engaged in activities that they shouldn’t be engaged in. And so, let’s take the most recent New York Times report that came out over the last few days. In that report, you have six reporters reporting anonymous sources, but in that actual report, they talked about the fact they’ve interviewed agents — both current and former agents, FBI, DOJ agents, for their story.”
He later added, “Here’s why they’re worried about the investigators, and why I believe that we need to investigate the investigators with a special prosecutor, when you have FBI agents sharing with the media, internal documents and internal conversations with the media on an ongoing investigation, that is not supposed to happen.”
