Bongino: 'X-files' Russia Collusion Investigation Like Living in 'Banana Republic'
Dan Bongino said that Special Counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into the Trump campaign's dealings with Russia reminds him of a banana republic.
"We are seriously turning into a banana republic," the former Secret Service agent and NYPD officer told "Fox & Friends."
Bongino called the Russia probe a "ridiculous X-files conspiracy theory."
Mueller intends to investigate Trump's personal finances such as his tax returns and real estate deals as part of the probe. President Trump hit back against this news, saying in a New York Times interview that those items are not within the scope of the probe.
"This is a disaster," Bongino said. "This is not the way we do things."
"Hell yeah [the White House] should go on the offensive," Bongino said, calling the proceedings and "embarrassment to our justice system."
He continued, saying it is dangerous when prosecutors start targeting people instead of crimes.
Bongino reiterated the situation, remarking that there is no crime, a special counsel investigating no crime, and investigators who donated to Trump's political opponent, Hillary Clinton.
Several of Mueller's lawyers gave large sums to Clinton, including one of almost $33,000.
"They'll get Trump for ripping a mattress tag off a mattress, and they'll vote for impeachment for it later on," an exasperated Bongino said.
"Liberals are laughing all the way to the bank on this."
