Joining me now by phone chairman a onetime chairman of the house -- security.
Committee and chairman of the subcommittee and counterterrorism.
Congressman Peter King.
And courage and great daddy back in the program wanna get your reaction first the breaking news we've had today on these three additional suspects.
-- Howard you're workforce a tremendous credit for -- that shows that this investigation is ongoing.
Is chose that is you may be more ramifications.
To this case the people brought a star when -- -- -- -- who.
Lone wolves about today's.
Chargers don't indicate that they were involved before the bombing.
But on the other hand if he trusted -- enough to call him afterwards to dispose of evidence to rid of the evidence or obstruct justice.
That you wonder you know what they knew about -- beforehand.
If they knew it was you have missed connections -- I I think that with the pending charges against them that's very good bargaining leverage for the government.
The Reuters -- services reporting that they are that they are suspected not only of of destroying and concealing of the Boston Marathon bombing suspects are names backpack.
Which are -- -- laptop computer which we reported earlier but also his backpack.
And there had been a question about what was in that backpack and and why they disposed of it.
Have you heard from your sources on this congressman -- and can you comment at all on.
The nature of the current charges.
HI I forward your reporting that's going to be -- just there's there's going to be yeah are lying to federal officials and that they were.
There was suspicious Mostar which is why the -- these 21 -- immigration violation.
They -- if your call it kicked them up and they were Goldman picking up the next day an immigration violation.
The third person I believe they were aware of -- a US citizen but there was enough to hold -- person.
On I'm on charges -- today but also factored mutual of America is in Times Square.
And you wonder you know debate -- -- conversations Reggie -- that they are.
Why wouldn't you call him anyways and the climate sentries are -- there's concern.
-- -- most wanted men in the world and yet.
He felt confident enough to -- -- mop.
And ask them to destroy evidence Serena put yourself in a position -- -- you mentioning before.
That's -- -- by and citizens to do something from nowhere anyway part of this one where it was a massacre Serbs -- massacre.
And yet they were willing to carriers out of people competent enough to call him and -- them to sort.
And again Reuters is reporting I get independently confirmed by fox that the charges say.
These three new suspects decided to throw away surnames backpack after learning that he was a suspect in the Boston Marathon bombing.
I mean as I was discussing with mark -- It realistically that's the only way it could be given that given the nature.
Of how -- their faces were everywhere congressman that Thursday night and and you know I mean it would have been tough especially if you're living in Boston as a college student.
To not have seen.
This guy's picture and recognize that he was wanted and then you get a phone call saying hey.
How about my backpack I mean do you think that this goes beyond.
The two who we believe actually conducted the bombing and the three.
Who now are alleged to have helped cover it up.
Well -- my understanding is there are other people restore you know obviously -- -- go to Weis is.
Book bought or the widow are certainly being looked at and is I believe there are is that -- -- being looked out of a turn and have to go anywhere ever.
-- -- this pretty quick to find three other people involved.
And so soon.
And he did I think once it if -- willing to cooperate any way to give any type reverence.
I think this could -- expand its hard to believe that these two carried out this operation by themselves this was very sophisticated.
A coordinated bombing attack the bombs -- put together.
Perfectly to me to have -- be practice runs with these bombs that nobody know about it reserve.
So involved by anyone whatsoever and that's leaving aside even any overseas don't went on to -- about.
The -- scenario so again it's too early to say any definite but it was also -- -- It's a definite the other day -- we thought we're going to be other people arrested now we do our.
Three people being arrested so I -- impressed -- as early -- this is definitely an open investigation.
You were happier spirit -- you are on the homeland security committee and therefore this is an appropriate question for you in particular.
This the immigration status of these at least two of the three.
New suspects were told -- -- is an American but these these two who we see in this picture here next to Joseph -- are -- in Times Square last year they're from Kazakhstan.
And we are told that they were in the country -- student visas they were picked up by -- -- two weeks ago.
On alleged administrative.
And now we hear that one of them DS Cotter buy -- I think it's the one of the blue scarf I'm not sure it's one of these two DS -- by -- Is no longer -- -- at UMass Dartmouth so there's the question of what he's doing in this country -- a student visa and whether he should have -- here.
To provide the alleged assistance to Democrats are -- to begin with.
Yes I -- I don't know if that's accurate very probate but I do know this is ongoing problem we have with universities.
Where we have students here -- student visas to.
Turn out not to fulfill their obligations our students and yet.
No one reports spell more turned them in and the basically are living here illegally and that is something that has to be addressed I think in any immigration bill also.
Should be addressed right now because break you know they detect orbiters -- -- these were not used to.
Or not but that Europe is full -- student appears student -- under the terms of your.
Of these exhibitions so that.
But again as another dimension to this if we're talking about ways to prevent these -- -- that you.
-- Content -- thank you very much for being here we appreciate -- -- megabyte you resort -- -- we.
