Rep. Elise Stefanik (R-NY) has accused former President Barack Obama of “criminal abuse of power” and warned there will be consequences.
Stefanik, the number three House Republican, called out Obama and Democrat President Joe Biden in response to Special Counsel John Durham’s bombshell final report.
As Slay News reported earlier, Durham found that Obama and then-Vice President Joe Biden were briefed in August 2016 on Hillary Clinton’s plan to falsely link Donald Trump to Russia ahead of the presidential election.
In response, Stefanik accused Obama, Biden, and others involved in the scheme of “criminal abuse of power.”
She has just sent out a warning to “those involved” that they will be “held accountable.”
The congresswoman vowed to seek “criminal prosecution” in the case.
She said: “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.
“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.
“The entire false smear was manufactured and paid for by political opponents of Donald Trump and perpetrated by the Left’s salivating mainstream media stenographers.
“Crossfire Hurricane was nothing more than an illegal, unlawful, and un-American abuse of power.
“I am more committed than ever to ensuring that those involved are held accountable and face criminal prosecution.”

A nervous Democrat Rep. Jerry Nadler (D-NY), one of the key figures in pushing the debunked Russia hoax in Congress, said:
“At long last, after two failed trials and at the cost of more than 6.5 million taxpayer dollars, the Durham investigation has come to an end.
“The accompanying report is, sadly, pretty much what we expected from this effort.
“Mr. Durham has, one last time, overpromised and under-delivered.
“Nothing in this report changes the outcome of the Mueller investigation, which resulted in multiple convictions, found more than one hundred contacts between the 2016 Trump campaign and the Russian government, and substantial reason to believe that Donald Trump had committed obstruction of justice.”
