Trump Calls The IG Report Proof Of The ‘Dark And Dangerous Period In U.S. History
According to Fox News, President Trump on Saturday said that the Department of Justice inspector general report on the Hillary Clinton email probe “totally destroys” former FBI Director James Comey — and describes a “dark and dangerous period” in U.S. history.
“The [inspector general] Report totally destroys James Comey and all of his minions including the great lovers, Peter Strzok and Lisa Page, who started the disgraceful Witch Hunt against so many innocent people. It will go down as a dark and dangerous period in American History!” Trump tweeted.
The FBI’s inspector general released a report this week that revealed previously unreported text messages between Strzok and Page while the two worked on the investigation, in which Strzok assured Page that the investigation would “stop” Trump from becoming president, The Hill Wrote.
Though the report goes over massive amounts of data showing proof of both bias decisions and collusion, the report really went easy on Comey and his staff. The report also concluded that their political opinions did not directly influence the investigations.
Guliani told ABC News that he doesn’t feel that the report exonerates President Trump:
President Donald Trump declared on Thursday that the inspector general’s report into Hillary Clinton’s email investigation “totally exonerates” him in the Russia investigation, but his lawyer Rudy Giuliani doesn’t agree.
“Well I don’t think it exonerates him,” Giuliani told ABC News in a phone interview Saturday.
“In some respects, it dramatically supports his position … that the people who conducted the Hillary probe who were extreme partisan for Hillary and against Trump.”
Giuliani has called for the suspension of special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia, until the inspector general completes a report on his investigation.
“Mueller only gets an interview after he gets thoroughly investigated and we determine his conflicts, the biases and prejudices of his staff,” Giuliani said.
