President Donald Trump lit into fired FBI agent Peter Strzok on Tuesday, labeling him a "fraud" and insisting the "witch hunt" Strzok once led into whether the Trump campaign aided Russia in tampering with the 2016 presidential race should be ended immediately.
And the commander in chief repeated his long held assertion that Hillary Clinton and the Democratic Party are the true culprits behind the election meddling.
"Fired FBI Agent Peter Strzok is a fraud, as is the rigged investigation he started," Trump said on Twitter. "There was no Collusion or Obstruction with Russia, and everybody, including the Democrats, know it. The only Collusion and Obstruction was by Crooked Hillary, the Democrats and the DNC!
"Strzok started the illegal Rigged Witch Hunt – why isn’t this so-called "probe" ended immediately?" Trump continued in a second tweet. "Why aren’t these angry and conflicted Democrats instead looking at Crooked Hillary?"
The FBI fired Strzok on Friday over anti-Trump text messages he exchanged with former agency lawyer Lisa Page during the 2016 presidential campaign.
Trump has repeatedly cited the texts between Page and Strzok, who were dating during the 2016 campaign, as proof that the FBI's investigation was tainted from the start.
