Upholding the Constitution
I am committed to strictly interpreting the Constitution in light of its original meaning and the common understanding of the intentions of our Founding Fathers who wrote and ratified this founding document. Our Constitution is timeless and is just as legitimate today as when it was first written. The principles the Constitution embodies and the system of government it establishes has allowed our exceptional nation to flourish. When I was sworn into Congress, I took an oath to uphold and defend the Constitution and I carry a copy of the Constitution with me in my pocket as constant reminder to uphold its principles.
I believe that our great Founding Fathers implicitly understood the threat posed to individual liberties by a large and intrusive federal government. One of the ways the Founding Fathers sought to limit the power of the federal government was by reserving powers to the individual states, and to the people themselves. I am a firm believer in states' rights, which is why I am a proud member of the Tenth Amendment Caucus, which focuses on restoring the critical balance between the powers of the states and those of the federal government.

“When public, all will know the corruption was #NeverTrump & #AlwaysHillary.”
My friends Reps. Mark Meadows, R-N.C., and Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, opined on Thursday that the time has come for a new person to serve as attorney general.
I disagree with their opinion. I believe Attorney General Jeff Sessions is the right man in the right place at the right time to restore respect in America for the Rule of Law.
In fact, I assert that he is already making a positive difference.
Washington, D.C.- Congressman Steve King, a member of the House Judiciary Committee, releases the following video of his questioning of Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein during today’s Department of Justice oversight hearing. During his questioning, King focused on newly disclosed text messages between FBI officials Peter Strzok and Lisa Page that reveal the presence of significant anti-Trump/Pro-Clinton bias within the FBI.
King: “It looks to me that the ‘Get Out of Jail Free’ card that Hillary Clinton received is rooted clear back in Barack Obama and his introduction of the word intent or lack of intent as a requirement for 18 USC 793 (f).”
