President Trump: ‘We’re Going to Rebuild the FBI’

Published

Speaking to reporters prior to his departure on Marine One, President Donald Trump asserted that “we’re going to rebuild the FBI.”

His comments come days after damning anti-Trump text message conversations between two FBI employees who were having an affair were leaked to the public.

“Well, it’s a shame what’s happened with the FBI.  But we’re going to rebuild the FBI.  It will be bigger and better than ever.  But it is very sad when you look at those documents.  And 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,” Trump said.

“And I’m going today, on behalf of the FBI, their new building.  But when everybody — not me — when everybody — the level of anger at what they’ve been witnessing with respect to the FBI is certainly very sad,” the president continued.

When asked if he believes that the special counsel is biased, Trump told the reporters that they will need to make that determination.

“Let’s put it this way,” Trump began. “There is absolutely no collusion.  That has been proven.  When you look at the committees, whether it’s the Senate or the House, everybody — my worst enemies, they walk out, they say, ‘There is no collusion but we’ll continue to look.’  They’re spending millions and millions of dollars.”

The president then asserted that he has nothing to do with Russia and “everybody knows it.”

“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 asserted.

However, Trump did not beat around the bush when it came to the Hillary Clinton investigation — stating bluntly that it was a “rigged system.”

“What we have found, and what they have found after looking at this, really, scam, is they found tremendous — whatever you want to call it; you’re going to have to make up your own determination — but they found tremendous things on the other side.  When you look at the Hillary Clinton investigation, it was — I’ve been saying for a long time — that was a rigged system, folks.  That was a rigged system,” Trump stated. “When you look at what they did with respect to the Hillary Clinton investigation, it was rigged.  And there’s never been anything like it in this country that we’ve ever found before.  It’s very, very sad.  Very, very sad.”

Though he acknowledged that the system is rigged, he would not comment on whether or not he has considered a pardon for the first victim of the Mueller witch hunt — General Michael Flynn.

“I don’t want to talk about pardons for Michael Flynn yet.  We’ll see what happens.  Let’s see.  I can say this:  When you look at what’s gone on with the FBI and with the Justice Department, people are very, very angry,” he stated.

WATCH: Corey Stewart Demolishes Tim Kaine In First Virginia Senate Debate

Published

on

HOT SPRINGS, VIRGINIA — Republican U.S. Senate nominee Corey Stewart galvanized the crowd at his first debate against Democrat incumbent Tim Kaine, winning major applause on nearly every point.

PBS moderator Judy Woodruff was surprisingly fair, giving Stewart a chance to obliterate Kaine from all angles while the Hillary Clinton running mate stood frozen, shellshocked, a grim look on his face. Kaine frequently said that he agrees with President Trump when attacked head-on by Stewart. During Stewart’s segments, Kaine furrowed his brows and glanced desperately at his campaign staff, who seemed demoralized by Stewart’s upset victory.

The only time the Kaine campaign team managed to influence the TV cameras occurred when they all laughed loudly at Stewart’s accurate claim that President Trump is standing up to Russia. But even the dying Russian collusion narrative could not save Kaine from the shellacking that was waiting for him at the Omni Homestead Resort. When the debate was over, press cameras raced to surround Stewart while Kaine flop-sweated through a few perfunctory interviews in a lesser corner.

Stewart rose to the occasion regarding the media’s prime talking point about him: that he is somehow racist because he has met racists, whom he disavowed. Given multiple chances by Stewart, Kaine refused to condemn an anti-Semitic office mate in Charlottesville, saying only that her well-documented anti-Semitic views on foreign policy are “not necessarily my” views.

Here is the entire beatdown in full. We will be highlighting different aspects of this epic smackdown as the day goes on and the people of Virginia acclimate themselves to what has just become a dead-on competitive U.S. Senate race.
