Former acting Director of National Intelligence Ric Grenell says that the FBI absolutely broke the law with its illegal surveillance of Donald Trump both when he was a candidate and after he became president.
Grenell made his comments during an interview with Just the News’ John Solomon.
“Political appointees and the leaders of the FBI and DOJ purposefully manipulated the truth,” Grenell told Solomon. “The people in the middle management. I’ve talked to them. I’ve talked to FBI agents, they knew that this was a phony exercise.
“But they were caught by their bosses, who knew that this was a phony Russian collusion hoax but allowed this information to go to the FISA courts and to the media and to everywhere else, and they saw people manipulating it,” he added.
Grenell added that he thinks that Special Prosecutor John Durham will soon be prosecuting more people.
“Do you have any doubt there are more crimes to be prosecuted by Durham?” Solomon asked.
“Yeah, I have no doubt,” Grenell answered, adding that it was “for sure” that the FBI broke the law.
“For the political people at DOJ and FBI, that’s where they need to be held to account,” Grenell said. “We hear a lot about, you know, manipulative politicians and political appointees manipulating the powers of government. But I’ve never seen it more rampant than in Democratic administrations, because the media allows them to get away with it.”
