[Ed. – This is a bigger volley than it may seem. It’s not just about McCabe’s texts. Trump is basically saying to the FBI (and implicitly DOJ), “Don’t make me open the floodgates.” If they don’t understand by now that he will, they’re learning-impaired.]
President Donald Trump called for the FBI to release the text messages of Deputy Director Andrew McCabe on Saturday.
“Why isn’t the FBI giving Andrew McCabe text massages [sic] to Judicial Watch or appropriate governmental authorities[?]” he asked.
Trump criticized the FBI for its lack of transparency and threatened to get involved. He also suggested that the FBI might destroy the text messages.
“FBI said they won’t give up even one,” he wrote. “(I may have to get involved, DO NOT DESTROY). What are they hiding?”
Trump commented on the ongoing FBI investigation after Judicial Watch founder Tom Fitton said his organization was preparing to file a lawsuit over the text messages.
