Following President Donald Trump's firing of FBI Director James Comey, many Democrat lawmakers are calling for a special prosecutor to take over the investigation into alleged ties between the Trump campaign and Russia.

On "Outnumbered" today, Rep. Peter King (R-NY) said there is no need to appoint a special prosecutor unless a crime was committed and unless there is an issue with the people currently leading the investigation.

He said the FBI will continue the investigation and follow the facts where they lead, but, as of now, there is no evidence of a crime.

King said he sees the Russia probe as an "investigation in search of a crime" and that Republicans should be standing up for Trump more vocally.

King said if any evidence of collusion is found, it should be made public but "until then, it's absolutely immoral to be accusing the president of the United States - and that's what they're doing - of treason."

"It's the ultimate crime and there's absolutely no evidence," King said.
