Trump Goes After James Comey For Hurting The FBI’s ‘Once Stellar Reputation’

President Donald Trump criticized former FBI Director James Comey and several other federal investigators involved in the Russian investigation Saturday for damaging the agency’s reputation.

Trump thrashed Comey and FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe on Twitter for using the nearly two-year long probe to tarnish the agency’s image. He also warned the agency not to slow walk public requests for text messages between former investigators Peter Strzok and Lisa Page.

“Why isn’t the FBI giving Andrew McCabe text messages to Judicial Watch or appropriate governmental authorities. FBI said they won’t give up even one (I may have to get involved, DO NOT DESTROY).” Trump tweeted before mentioning McCabe’s wife’s involvement in Democratic politics.

He added in an additional tweet: “Will the FBI ever recover it’s once stellar reputation, so badly damaged by Comey, McCabe, Peter S and his lover, the lovely Lisa Page, and other top officials now dismissed or fired? So many of the great men and women of the FBI have been hurt by these clowns and losers!” (RELATED: IG: McCabe Used Strzok Mistress To Bypass Chain Of Command To Monitor Clinton Probe)

Trump has gone after Comey, special counsel Robert Mueller, and others involved in the investigation in the past – the president tweeted Aug. 9 his willingness to take action against Mueller if the probe was not finished soon.
