President Trump slammed FBI agent Peter Strzok, calling his Thursday testimony before Congress a “disgrace to our country.”
During an interview with CBS News’ Jeff Glor, Trump said: “I watched some of the testimony, even though I’m in Europe, of Strzok. And I thought it was a disgrace to our country. I thought it was an absolute disgrace.”
“He wants to do things against me before I was even, I guess before I was even the candidate,” Trump added. “It was a disgrace. And then he lied about it. And you know, talking about shutting it down and ‘we, we.’ And he says, ‘Oh, I meant the American people’ all of a sudden, you know. He came up with excuses.”
Strzok appeared before Congress to answer questions, in part, about anti-Trump texts he had sent during the campaign to another agent he was having an affair with.
According to Vox, in one notable message, he said Trump would not become president, saying, “We’ll stop it.”
When asked about it, Strzok told members at the hearing that the text “was written late at night, off-the-cuff, and it was in response to a series of events that included then-candidate Trump insulting the immigrant family of a fallen war hero.”
Regardless of this explanation, Trump and his supporters have frequently referenced the agent’s texts as proof that the FBI and Russia probe are biased against the president.
