Elise Stefanik: Gov't 'attempted to overthrow democracy' when they weaponized agencies against Trump
Rep. Elise Stefanik had a lot to say about Special Counsel John Durham’s report on the details of the FBI’s investigation of President Donald Trump’s 2016 campaign. She stated the FBI probe revealed a “criminal abuse of power.”
Elise Stefanik serves as the U.S. representative for New York’s 21st Congressional District. Since 2021, she has served as the chair of the House Republican Conference.
Durham's 300-page report concluded with this statement, according to the Washington Examiner:
“Based on the review of Crossfire Hurricane and related intelligence activities, we conclude that the Department and the FBI failed to uphold their important mission of strict fidelity to the law in connection with certain events and activities described in this report.”
The congresswoman claims this act on former President Donald Trump was an abuse of power and unlawful. Stefanik blasted everyone involved in the FBI’s investigation into the Trump campaign and accused Obama and then-Vice President Joe Biden of being involved from the beginning.
Stefanik continued to back Trump, stating,
“The long-awaited Durham Report confirmed what the American people already know; that individuals at the highest levels of government attempted to overthrow democracy when they illegally weaponized the federal government against Donald J. Trump.”
She continued, “This criminal abuse of power went all the way up to the Oval Office where President Obama and then Vice-President Joe Biden were in on it from the very beginning."
"This was an unlawful attempt by the politicized FBI and DOJ to meddle in our elections," Stefanik concluded.
