President Donald Trump lashed out at “scum” at the FBI at his rally in Pennsylvania Tuesday night amid the release of an inspector general report on the FBI’s investigation of the 2016 Trump campaign.
The Department of Justice’s inspector general report debunked the president’s claim that the investigation into his campaign was launched by biased individuals within the intelligence community looking to undermine his presidency.
The president touted the IG report and said, “The inspector general found that the FBI’s spying application contained 17 errors and omissions commonly known as lies and deceit! When the FBI — and you have great people in the FBI, but not in leadership. You have not good people in leadership.”
Trump accused officials of hiding a “frame-up” so “they could keep it going on, thinking they were going to hurt us politically.”
“Look how they have hurt people. They’ve destroyed the lives of people that were great people. That are still great people,” the president continued. “Their lives have been destroyed by scum. Okay? By scum.”
Trump added that he’s still anticipating the review being conducted by U.S. Attorney John Durham (though POTUS referred to him as “Bull Durham“).
