President Donald Trump called the Russia investigation a “phony witch hunt” on Wednesday night and noted the bias of FBI agents Peter Strzok and Lisa Page.
Strzok and Page, who were engaged in an extramarital affair, exchanged a number of biased messages against Trump prior to his election and discussed ways to stop his presidency. (RELATED: STRZOK: ‘We’ll Stop’ Trump Presidency)
“Excuse me, have you been seeing and watching what’s going on with the inspector general’s report, what a scam this whole thing is? How guilty is [Hillary Clinton]?” Trump asked the crowd at his rally in Minnesota as they broke into a “lock her up” chant.
“With Peter Strzok and his lover, Lisa Page. I don’t think their wife and husband are too happy about that, what do you think?” he joked. “I don’t think so.”
Trump continued to rail against Hillary Clinton, asserting, “No matter what she did, no matter how many crimes she committed — which were numerous — they wanted her to be innocent.”
“With me, nothing. No collusion, no nothing,” he continued. “And they just wanted to take all of us and they wanted to put us in trouble. And it’s not working too well, I’ll tell you. It’s disgusting. The phony witch hunt.”
