Trump lashes out at FBI director Wray over Russia investigation report
President: Comey successor ‘will never be able to fix the FBI’
In the aftermath of the release of a Department of Justice report about the handling of the Russia investigation by the FBI, Donald Trump has lashed out at the bureau’s director.“I don’t know what report current director of the FBI Christopher Wray was reading,
the president tweeted on Tuesday , “but it sure wasn’t the one given to me. With that kind of attitude, he will never be able to fix the FBI, which is badly broken despite having some of the greatest men & women working there!
The report by the inspector general of the Department of Justice was released on Monday. It said there was no political bias in the origin and operation of the FBI’s investigation of Russian election interference and links
between Trump and Moscow – a common charge by the president and his allies who allege a supposed “Deep State” conspiracy.But inspector general Michael Horowitz did find “serious performance failures” in the monitoring of Carter Page, a Trump aide linked with Moscow.
Horowitz found 17 “significant inaccuracies or omissions” in applications for a warrant from the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance or Fisa court to monitor Page’s communications and subsequent warrant renewals.
Wray issued a statement on Monday in which he said he had “ordered more than 40 corrective steps to address the report’s recommendations”.

On Tuesday Trump had apparently been watching Fox News, whose concentration on the errors identified by
Horowitz was part of partisan responses to the report which even included criticism from Bill Barr, Trump’s attorney general and the man in charge of the justice department.
“You have to look at the 17 instances of misconduct cited in the Report,” Trump wrote, “they are very bad. The Fisa court was clearly taken for a ride on this, a failure of the FBI up and fown [soc] the chain of command.
It’s about as strong a medicine as I’ve seen in a report of this kind in a very long time.”Wray also spoke to ABC on Monday, pushing back on the conspiracy theory that Ukraine intervened in the 2016 election, a line followed by Trump and his supporters as impeachment continues.
