Republican Rep. Francis Rooney said Tuesday that he wants to see the upper ranks of the FBI purged of politically motivated agents who he believes are working for “the deep state.”

“People have very high standards of our government agencies,” the Florida congressman told MSNBC. He added that recent revelations about  the political biases of various FBI employees “undermine” his “confidence that the agencies don’t respect the Constitution and will not put the ends before the means.”
