‘Horror show’: Trump hammers IG reporting of the results
In an impromptu interview with Fox News, President Trump hammers James Comey, Peter Strzok and more for ‘plotting’ against him, reaction, and analysis on ‘the Five.’
President Trump on Saturday said that the Department of justice inspector General report about the Hillary Clinton email probe “completely destroyed” the former FBI Director, James Comey — and describes a “dark and dangerous period” in the history of the United States.
The report, released on Thursday, error a number of FBI and DOJ officials for their conduct in relation to the investigation of the Clinton-the use of a private E-Mail server, if you served as Secretary of state.
In particular, Comey called actions in the case of “undue” in relation to its decision in a public notice in July 2016, in the heat of the presidential campaign, the recommendation against the persecution of Clinton.

The report also showed text messages between the agent Peter Strzok and colleague, Lisa page, in the Strzok vows to “stop” Trump for President. Strzok, who was involved with the page, was a senior investigator in the Clinton case, and, later, the Russia spacecraft, before it is removed.
“The IG report completely destroyed James Comey and all of his minions, including the great lover, Peter Strzok and Lisa page, the have started, the shameful witch-hunt against so many innocent people,” Trump said on Saturday.

Trump added that: “It will go down as a dark and dangerous time in American history.”
Comey responded to the report on Thursday Via Twitter that he believes that the “conclusions are appropriate, although I don’t agree with some of them.”
“I respect the DOJ IG office, which is the reason why I pushed you to do this review. The conclusions are appropriate, although I don’t agree with some of it,” he said.
“People can see in good faith, an unprecedented situation is different,” he added.
But Trump has booted is has its language on the report, and trained his sights on Comey in particular. On Friday, he said that the report was a “total disaster for Comey, his minions and, unfortunately, the FBI is.”
In an interview with “Fox & Friends” on Friday, he went a step further and Comey described the cave as “the ringleader of this whole robber.”
