President Trump Calls FBI 'Tainted' Amid Russia Investigation

"But for purposes of hopefully thinking I'm going to be treated fairly, I've stayed uninvolved with this particular matter".

Rep. Jim Himes (D-CT) made an unexpected admission on the House Intelligence Committee's investigation into the alleged collusion between the Trump campaign and Russian Federation during an interview on CNN's "New Day".

While at the president's West Palm Beach golf club, Trump provided a far-reaching, unscripted interview to the New York Times. "You've got an open partisan being hired in all of these key little slots that are partisan and it challenges the credibility of some of the FBI", said Rep. Brat who found details concerning potential FBI use of the unverified Steele Dossier and anti-Trump texts messages sent by FBI agent Peter Strzok to be major breeches in FBI standards.

Earlier on Thursday, Trump wrote in a post on Twitter that China has been "caught" allowing oil into North Korea and said such moves would prevent "a friendly solution" to the crisis.

The President was also asked if former President Barack Obama's attorney general, Eric Holder, was more loyal than his own attorney general, Jeff Sessions. "Totally protected him", Mr. Trump said. "They're patriotic citizens and they want to uphold the rule of law which is part of our American exceptionalism", said Representative Todd Rokita (R-Ind.). I will say this: Holder protected President Obama. "And I have great respect for that, I'll be honest". "He thinks if he keeps saying it over and over enough, it's going to be true, but that's not the case".

"Another reason that I'm going to win another four years is because newspapers, television, all forms of media will tank if I'm not there because without me, their ratings are going down the tubes", Mr. Trump said, then invoked one of his preferred insults.

New York Times reporter - and conducter of that very interview - Michael Schmidt appeared on Morning Joe this morning and spoke to Willie Geist and Eddie Glaude about that very topic.
