In an interview presented today on Fox Business, Trump said, “The way they’ve treated me — and we have found many crimes on the other side — these are stone cold crimes, what they’ve done, between the deletion of 33,000 emails and many, many other things — Comey’s lying, all of the Brennan lying, the lies to Congress — and these are just absolute lies to Congress. Clapper lied to Congress. Nobody does anything. If somebody — they all say Flynn — I don’t… anything about what he said, but the FBI said he didn’t lie. Mueller said he did lie. So what’s that all about? And then they destroy a man who is a General and a respected man for many years. They’ve treated — we have been Treated Very, Very Unfairly. All because Jeff Sessions didn’t have a clue. OK?”
