While speaking at a rally in Indiana, President Trump laid down the gauntlet, telling the Department of Justice and the FBI they need to start doing their job or he would “get involved,” Fox News reported.
“All I can say is, our Justice Department and our FBI, at the top of each because inside they have incredible people, but our Justice Department and our FBI have to start doing their job and doing it right and doing it now because people are angry,” Trump said. “What’s happening is a disgrace. And at some point, I wanted to stay out, but at some point if it doesn’t straighten out properly, I want them to do their job, I will get involved and I’ll get in there if I have to,” he added.
He had much more to say, calling it “disgraceful” adding that “the whole world is watching.”
“And the whole world gets it and the whole world understands exactly what’s going on,” he said.
Trump, Fox said, made his comments as he took the stage to support GOP Senate candidate Mike Braun, who seeks to replace Democratic Sen. Joe Donnelly.
Trump has had an ongoing feud with Attorney General Jeff Sessions, calling on the nation’s top attorney to investigate former rival Hillary Clinton and others.
This is not the first time Trump has threatened to “get involved.” Earlier this month, the president said he “may have to get involved” in the fight by a conservative watchdog to obtain text messages by fired deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe related to his wife’s 2015 Virginia state senate campaign.
Earlier Thursday, the president tweeted that he was headed to Indiana “for a big crowd rally” in support of Braun, “a very successful businessman.”
Will be going to Evansville, Indiana, tonight for a big crowd rally with Mike Braun, a very successful businessman who is campaigning to be Indiana’s next U.S. Senator. He is strong on Crime & Borders, the 2nd Amendment, and loves our Military & Vets. Will be a big night!
