President Trump will visit the FBI headquarters in Quantico, Virginia Friday to mark this year’s graduation ceremony; speaking to future agents at the bureau’s National Academy as rumors of anti-Trump bias throughout the Department of Justice continue to swirl.
The President’s remarks come just days after he referred to the nation’s top law enforcement agency as “the worst in history,” and described its leadership as “in tatters.”
“It’s a shame what’s happened with the FBI,” Trump said Friday before his visit. “But we’re going to rebuild the FBI. It’ll be bigger and better than ever.”
“Everybody — the level of anger at what they’ve been witnessing with respect to the FBI is certainly very sad,” he added.
The war of words between the White House and the DOJ escalated this week, after numerous examples of anti-Trump bias surfaced throughout special counsel Robert Mueller’s months-long investigation into Russian election meddling.
“There is extreme bias against this president with high-up members of the team there at the FBI who were investigating Hillary Clinton at the time,” a White House spokesperson told Fox News.
