Trump Attacks FBI As ‘Corrupt’ After It’s Revealed FBI Is Probing Whether He’s A Russian Agent





An irate President Donald Trump spent Saturday morning on Twitter attempting to defend himself against a bombshell New York Times report that the FBI opened an investigation into the president in 2017 to determine whether he was working on behalf of Russia and if the president could be a national security threat.

Trump fired off a series of five tweets attacking the New York Times, the FBI, former FBI Director James Comey, Hillary Clinton, Robert Mueller and a handful of others in response to a story that looked into a counterintelligence investigation launched after the president fired James Comey from his position as FBI director and his decision making surrounding Russia. Mueller, who now leads the special counsel investigation into Russia’s meddling in the 2016 investigation, took over the FBI’s probe soon after its creation.

“Wow, just learned in the Failing New York Times that the corrupt former leaders of the FBI, almost all fired or forced to leave the agency for some very bad reasons, opened up an investigation on me, for no reason & with no proof, after I fired Lyin’ James Comey, a total sleaze!” the president wrote on Twitter.






“I have been FAR tougher on Russia than Obama, Bush or Clinton,” Trump claimed. “Maybe tougher than any other President. At the same time, & as I have often said, getting along with Russia is a good thing, not a bad thing. I fully expect that someday we will have good relations with Russia again!”
