President Donald Trump on Sunday lashed out at the FBI on Sunday, calling “top” members of the federal agency “human scum.”
“You know what they are though, they’re scum. They’re human scum,” Trump angrily lashed out during a press briefing on the coronavirus pandemic after he was asked about the news that his former adviser Roger Stone may soon head to prison.
“The top of the FBI were scum. And what they did to General Flynn – was a disgrace,” adding that these “were crooked people, these were bad people.”

President Trump says the Justice Department lawyers and FBI agents from the Mueller investigation, many of whom still work for the US government, are "crooked … dangerous … very bad … human scum." During his rant, he also praised convicted criminals Manafort, Flynn, Stone.

The president of the US called the FBI human scum during a pandemic briefing, praised convicted criminals, and still has not delivered the COVID tests he promised weeks ago.

Trump is defending Flynn, Manafort & Stone, said the cases against them were scams. He stopped short of saying he would pardon them but said we’ll see what he does. He called the FBI Director “human scum.” He celebrated the “investigation of the investigators.” Trump is lawless.
