FBI Won’t Keep Trump from Great Meetings with World Leaders!

Jan. 15, 2019 (EIRNS)—President Donald Trump told aggressive reporters yesterday again that his meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin in Helsinki last year “was a very good meeting ... a very successful meeting.” He added that he has had such one-on-one meetings with world leaders “all the time,” with Japan’s Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, with China’s President Xi Jinping. Once again, he reiterated his very sane policy, that

“it’s good to have relationships with Russia, and China, and Japan, and India. And I have relationships with almost everybody, and that’s a good thing, not a bad thing.”

The pestering press corps painted that historical American foreign policy as treasonous. Trump was not impressed with the reporters’ fixation on the FBI’s illegal investigation of him.

“The people that started that investigation are McCabe, who’s a proven liar and was fired from the FBI; or Lisa Page, who was forced to leave the FBI, and her lover, Peter Stzrok.... And also Comey.... So the people doing that investigation were people that have been caught, that are known scoundrels.... I guess you could say they’re dirty cops,”

the President countered. Twelve people have already been terminated from the FBI, and “if you look at what’s happening, others are going to go.”

“So when you say, ‘Should I have confidence in the FBI or intelligence agencies?’ When I see Ohr and I see all of these people; when I see Lisa and her lover, and their notes and their texts get captured, and you see what they said about me, having nothing to do with the investigation. Let me tell you something,”

the President warned. “When people see that, you have an angry country because the whole thing is a hoax. It’s a big hoax, and it’s very bad for our country.”

Trump’s former lawyer John Dowd yesterday called the DOJ/FBI/Special Counsel operation “an attempted coup.”
