President Donald Trump on Monday claimed victory in the mixed findings of a Justice Department watchdog report into surveillance of his 2016 presidential campaign and the origins of the ensuing Russia investigation — a position belied somewhat by the inspector general’s finding no direct evidence of political bias in the launching of the probe, despite serious faults with the FBI’s applications for surveillance warrants of Trump’s campaign.

Still, Trump ripped the report’s findings at the beginning of an unrelated meeting at the White House on Monday, calling its revelations “incredible, far worse than I would’ve ever thought possible” and accusing former officials of “an attempted overthrow of government.”

The article goes on to state the following:

“It should never again happen to another president,” he said, proclaiming later that “it’s everything that a lot of people thought it would be, except far worse.”

According to Politico, Trump “took aim at one finding in particular.”

“Well, they fabricated evidence and they lied to the courts and they did all sorts of things to have it go their way,” he told reporters, referring to revelations that the FISA warrant renewals of Page partially relied on an email altered by an FBI lawyer.

Trump said, “This was something that we can never allow to happen again.”

Trump also defended firing former FBI Director James Comey, saying, “What they were doing and what they would have done if I didn’t make a certain move — a certain move that was a very important move because it would have been even worse, if that’s possible. And they might’ve been able to succeed. This was an overthrow of government. This was an attempted overthrow, and a lot of people were in on it, and they got caught.”
