President Donald Trump is sounding off on how corrupt the FBI is.
“They spied on my campaign, pushed the FAKE Dossier, and illegally used the FISA Court,” the 45th president said.
“The FBI has a long and unrelenting history of being corrupt,” Trump explained. “Just look back to the days of J. Edgar Hoover.”
“In the modern era, nothing has changed except that it has gotten far worse,” Trump continued.
“See what they were willing to do in order to get Crooked Hillary Clinton elected (they failed), and got caught!” he said.
Trump named four specific people at the top of the FBI who he says are corrupt: Comey, McCabe, Strzok and Lisa Page
“The Inspector General said the FBI acted with ‘gross incompetence and negligence,’” Trump noted. “I was fully vindicated in the Russia SCAM and the ‘No Collusion’ Mueller Investigation.”
Trump said both impeachments against him were hoaxes. “Now they raid my home, ban my lawyers and, without any witnesses allowed, break the lock that they asked us to install on the storage area that we showed them early on, which held papers that they could have had months ago for the asking.”
“Without the ridiculous political grandstanding of a ‘break in’ to a very storied, important, and high visibility place, just before the Midterm Elections,” Trump said.
Trump noted that FBI agents demanded that security cameras be turned off during their raid. This never happened as the Mar-a-Lago staff refused to comply, according to Trump’s son Eric.
Eric Trump says this footage of their shady behavior will be released “at the right time.” The Trump family watched as agents are seen behaving improperly and searching places they “shouldn’t have been.”
Agents reportedly searched Melania Trump’s wardrobe despite allegedly on the property to obtained classified documents.
Trump’s attorney Christina Bobb was forced by FBI agents to wait at the end of the Mar-a-Lago driveway while they searched the property. Agents likely assumed the security cameras were off.

Trump’s attorney Christina Bobb said the Trumps were “actually able to see the whole thing” while in New York. “They actually have a better idea of what took place inside,” she said.
