Before leaving the White House for the FBI Academy, President Donald Trump addressed reporters.
While he has repeatedly mentioned there was “collusion” before, Trump turned his sights to the Democratic Party in his Friday comments. But before he went there, he talked about a few other things.
“We are going to rebuild the FBI. It’s going to be bigger and better than ever. But it is very sad when you look at those documents. How they’ve done that is really, really disgraceful.
And you have a lot of very angry people that are seeing it. It’s a very sad thing to watch, I will tell you that. And I’m going today on behalf of the FBI, their new building.”
After mentioning Roy Moore should concede, he dove into Russia.
“When you look at the committees, whether it’s the Senate or the House, everybody, my worst enemies, they walk out and say ‘there is no collusion, but we will continue to look,’” Trump said.
The president continued: “I didn’t make a phone call to Russia; I have nothing to do with Russia — everybody knows it.”
Then, he placed the responsibility for the Russia probe on the shoulders of the Democratic Party: “That was a Democrat hoax. It was an excuse for losing the election. And it should have never been this way where they spent all these millions of dollars.”
Trump finished by suggesting “tremendous things” were found on the other side: “When you look at what they did with respect to the Hillary Clinton investigation, it was rigged.”
