Wednesday morning President Trump lashed out against FBI Agent Peter Strzok, whose anti-Trump text messages during the 2016 presidential campaign has put him under serious scrutiny.

While expressing hope Hillary Clinton would win the election, Strzok was heading up the “investigation” into Clinton’s email debacle, and was also temporarily on special counsel Robert Mueller’s team to investigate alleged “collusion” by the Trump campaign.

Trump tweeted Wednesday morning, first quoting a statement by Democrat lawyer Alan Dershowitz:

“FBI Agent Peter Strzok (on the Mueller team) should have recused himself on day one. He was out to STOP THE ELECTION OF DONALD TRUMP. He needed an insurance policy. Those are illegal, improper goals, trying to influence the Election. He should never, ever been allowed to……..

…..remain in the FBI while he himself was being investigated. This is a real issue. It won’t go into a Mueller Report because Mueller is going to protect these guys. Mueller has an interest in creating the illusion of objectivity around his investigation.” ALAN DERSHOWITZ….

..This is a terrible situation and Attorney General Jeff Sessions should stop this Rigged Witch Hunt right now, before it continues to stain our country any further. Bob Mueller is totally conflicted, and his 17 Angry Democrats that are doing his dirty work are a disgrace to USA!

President Trump then commented on Paul Manafort, who is currently on trial, and briefly served as President Trump’s campaign manager in 2016.

He tweeted:

Paul Manafort worked for Ronald Reagan, Bob Dole and many other highly prominent and respected political leaders. He worked for me for a very short time. Why didn’t government tell me that he was under investigation. These old charges have nothing to do with Collusion – a Hoax!
