"My first line would be James Comey," Biggs, who sits on the House Judiciary Committee, told hosts Krystal Ball and Buck Sexton when asked who should be prosecuted.

"He manipulated the … state requirement in that investigation, then he carried it on over," he added. 

“He leaked information, some of it was supposed to be classified, to a buddy for the purpose of leaking that to the media, to manipulate getting this investigation and the special counsel going," he said. “He is the guy that really pulled the ripcord on this thing."

“That just gives you a start of what he did and his bias against this president. He’s the first place I’d start," he said.
