Trump Breaks Silence on DOJ IG Report - Here's What He Had to Say

President Trump weighed in on the damning Department of Justice inspector general’s report released Thursday, saying its conclusions justify his decision to fire former FBI Director James Comey.

“The IG Report is a total disaster for Comey, his minions and sadly, the FBI. Comey will now officially go down as the worst leader, by far, in the history of the FBI. I did a great service to the people in firing him. Good Instincts. Christopher Wray will bring it proudly back!” the president tweeted Friday morning. 

As Katie outlined this morning, some of the key findings from the report include that bias was found at the FBI; an FBI agent and lawyer messaged each other about “stopping Trump” from becoming president; several other agents expressed political bias in favor of Hillary Clinton and against Donald Trump on their government-issued devices, including one who embraced the “resistance”; and that Comey was “insubordinate.”  

“FBI Agent Peter Strzok, who headed the Clinton & Russia investigations, texted to his lover Lisa Page, in the IG Report, that “we’ll stop” candidate Trump from becoming President. Doesn’t get any lower than that!” Trump also tweeted. 

The president then retweeted several clips from former congressman Jason Chaffetz appearing on Fox & Friends discussing the report.
