Trump calls FBI and DOJ Leaders Scum

Trump said, “If you look at what’s happened with the scum that’s leaving the very top of government. People that others used to say these were dirty cops. These were dirty players. There’s twenty-one already, and I’m not doing any. They’re just leaving because they got caught like nobody ever got caught.

Trump is attacking the FBI and DOJ as a cover for obstruction of justice

The important part of what Trump said wasn’t necessarily the smear, although there is nothing more un-American than a president who has taken a sworn oath to uphold the law calling the top federal law enforcement officials in the country scum. The real key was that half sentence where Trump claimed that he didn’t do anything to force these leaders out.

The president’s statement is a proven lie. He forced out the people at the FBI and DOJ who were investigating him. Trump himself admitted as much during his interview with Lester Holt.

The president is trying to give himself a cover story for obstruction of justice.

Donald Trump believes that he is above the law, and he is unleashing his institutionally destructive venom on anyone or anything that tries to hold him accountable.

The corrupt president plunged himself to a new low in Green Bay, Wisconsin.
