Monday on Fox Business Network’s “Mornings With Maria,” Sen. David Perdue (R-GA) said it was “going to come out” that the Obama administration “really did interfere” with the 2016 presidential election.
Partial transcript as follows:
BARTIROMO: He can’t form his government. That is outrageous. He’s got all of this pushback in terms of spying, in terms of what went on at the top of the FBI and the DOJ during the election. I mean it’s quite extraordinary the barriers that the past administration has put up for President Trump.
PERDUE: It’s unprecedented. This president’s been calling it out for over a year. We’ve all been distracted by the Mueller investigation. Now it’s time to get at the real truth. There’s no collusion between this president and Russia. That’s going to come out. But what’s going to come out is that the Obama administration really did interfere with that election.
BARTIROMO: It appears so. That’s what we’re learning. Is there going to be justice you think ?
PERDUE: We hope so. That is what America is all about free and open information. It’s what the people demand. Hopefully we’ll get that in this case.
BARTIROMO: These are extraordinary times.
PERDUE: Extraordinary, it’s outrageous actually. It threatens our republic actually. If we can’t have the peaceful transfer of power, what good is our republic? Thats what’s so threatening about this resist Trump movement. Look this president is no choir boy. I’ve said that but his instincts are right. We are moving in the right direction.
