President Donald Trump said Friday that he is trying to stay uninvolved in the Justice Department but he may have to be involved if its bias against him worsens.
Trump, targeting “vicious” text messages about the FBI attempting to stop him from being elected and insulting his supporters, said the inspector general’s new report on the Hillary Clinton email investigation proves the presence of bias at the FBI. Specifically, some in the FBI called Trump’s supporters “retarded,” leading Trump to say his supporters are some of the “greatest” and “hardest-working” people — and that former FBI director James Comey is “scum.”
“I have the bikers, I have the construction workers, I have them all,” Trump said of his support. “And by the way, I have the FBI — you go into the FBI and take a poll of the real FBI, not the scum on top, not Comey and that group of people that are total thieves.”
