Congressman Peter King a New York a Republican member of the homeland security committee.
Chairman of the subcommittee on counterterrorism and intelligence.
Congressman thanks for coming in this morning.
Has he slipped through our fingers forever.
Maybe not forever -- -- very different -- we have used every bit of diplomatic leverage we have right now.
The president should be in contact -- Putin's saying that the -- reset button.
With Russia that's off of Putin allows him to leave the country and does not send him back the United States.
The so much Iceland Iceland is a NATO ally we should take what direction we have -- Diplomatically -- financially -- -- went as far as Cuba and Venezuela that's a haven for refugees from American justice.
That's a Jimmy -- -- but also.
I think it's important to the American people to realize that this guy is a traitor is a defector is not a hero and I heard the senator Rand -- morning.
Actually from Ted -- Q general proper what's happened to our country is that trade -- And for anyone to be comparing him -- yet US military hero is absurd disgraceful.
You can you confirm that he has left Hong Kong that he's on the plane that he's in Moscow are headed to any of these countries or is this just to report at this point.
My and change -- -- said he was on the plane but no one on the planes have been storms or who knows and had a Assange saying this morning that sometimes you say you -- on one country and you really go to another.
So this whole thing to -- rules for all we know what so many issues you're white -- -- let him go why did China let him go.
Is I -- send additional but few -- being so -- part of this if he is actually going to Russia.
So it -- diplomatic relations are really -- the president's got to get on this and also in terms of Homeland Security.
How risky is -- does he know more than you already know he has in his possession and in his mind.
Well I was we are very concerned -- what.
More information can -- out and all of this information is damaging to the US damaging to our security puts American lives at risk.
In terms of -- Being Hong Kong if he infected.
Hong Kong is claiming this morning that they requested additional paperwork from the United States.
And our country didn't comply what information did they need to hold him for us and can you confirm whether or not the White House actually participated in supplying what was needed or.
Let it go and and here we are now trying to track him all over the world far.
-- the latest details we do know that the US government filed necessary papers.
If do it in -- any additional information needed and this happens often -- back and forth that is no excuse to let him go once a government.
Files papers saying that the person is a fugitive from justice they have to hold -- to -- resolved.
What about the country's.
You said with Iceland we have relations in NATO.
Agreements not Cuba and Venezuela if that's where he's headed or somewhere else and in South America.
They will protect him.
And will they do that because he's valuable to them from an intelligence standpoint or because they can thumb their nose at us that they have someone they know the US wants to get back.
Jimmy I would -- -- all of -- borrow at very least just having some -- the we want makes him feel good show Winchester ma has been there all these years.
But also this -- does have Intel he does have intelligence they will have a and so I said to all of your bald.
It's all the more reason by the way that we should make it clear that anyone certainly any American who cooperates.
And is facilitating him escaping or getting -- of the country.
Should be indicted for aiding and abetting a fugitive from justice this is a -- -- Let me mention on the left side of your screen folks were watching that.
The passengers from that flight actually get off this plane and everyone there is looking for -- what's -- to see if he actually just sparks from the plane.
You'll see a flurry of activity because every press organization is there right now.
In the meantime.
-- -- He is saying that or it's been reported through him that he's been in touch for Julian Assange.
We know about the WikiLeaks scandal in the information that got out corporal Manning and he's going to pay the price for what he did.
If we get our hands on him.
What are we gonna do and why is this happening again.
Well first of all he has to be indicted and prosecuted for -- just an -- -- the maximum possible sentence.
Why -- -- happening they're gonna have to really I believe do mortar type of security -- someone like this.
Was able get access to so much and leave the country without anyone even knowing it is shows are real deficiency -- anyone getting eight.
Security clearance -- also held together.
And somehow he was able to.
It I really -- is why you maintained his security -- before this.
But the fact that so many an employee at NSA -- working -- a contractor that is they -- -- access or information we -- download it get out of the country.
It's it's inexcusable so the balls being dropped from a security standpoint how fast we tighten up absolutely I -- to work on that -- and -- also continue to give us exclusively whatever information you can.
Thank you -- coming -- thank you I really appreciate that sir.
Eric thank you congress.
