In his speech to first responders at a Lewiston, Maine fire station, King claimed that 9/11 was “the beginning of an attack that’s continuing today. They used airplanes into towers. Now people can use the click of a computer key in St. Petersburg Russia to attack.”
He added that Russian “meddling,” which has so far proven existent but utterly ineffective at making major alterations of national election results were “the same kind of attack today that occurred in 2001.”
