USA: 'It's a total witch hunt' - Trump on FBI raid of attorney's office

United States, Washington DC
April 10, 2018 at 01:03 GMT -00:00 · Published

They're not looking at the Hillary Clinton horrible things that she did and all of the crimes that were committed. They're not looking at all of the things that happened that everybody is very angry about, I can tell you from the Republicans' side and I think even the independents' side. They only keep looking at us. So they find no collusion and then they go from there and they say well let's keep going, and they raided the office of a personal attorney early in the morning, and I think it's a disgrace. We'll be talking about it more. But this is the most conflicted group of people I've ever seen. The attorney general made a terrible mistake when he did this and when he recused himself, he should have certainly let us know if he was going to recuse himself, and we would have used a different attorney general. So he made what I consider to be a very terrible mistake for the country but you'll figure that out. All I can say is after looking for a long period of time, and even before the special counsel, because it really started just about from the time I won the nomination, and you look at what took place and what happened, and it's a disgrace, it's a disgrace. I've been president now for what seems like a lengthy period of time. We've done a fantastic job."

US President Donald Trump blasted the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) for carrying out a “witch hunt” following the organisation’s actions of breaking into the office of one of his personal attorneys, speaking from the White House on Monday.

“It's frankly a real disgrace. It's an attack on our country in a true sense; it's an attack on what we all stand for”, he said.

“They found no collusion whatsoever with Russia. The reason they found it, is there was no collusion at all, no collusion. This is the most biased group of people, these people have the biggest conflicts of interest I've ever seen”, he continued.

The FBI raided the offices and home of Trump’s personal attorney Michael Cohen on Monday, seizing records and communications between the lawyer and the US president. It is unclear whether the search was carried out in relation to the investigation into alleged collusion between the US presidential elections and Russia.
