Rep. Himes defend the FBI after President Trump attacks
(MENAFN) After his recent criticism of FBI agents, President Trump was struck Thursday by Rep. Jim Himes as he defended the agency.
During an interview on CNN, Himes pointed out "The enemies of the United States - name them, North Korea, Iran, Russia - in their wildest dreams they would never imagine that the president of the United States would tar and eviscerate the FBI, the DOJ, the CIA. These are all institutions that our enemies hate because they keep us safe, because they do the hard work of American national security."
The representative continued his attacks as he accused Trump of harassing U.S. institutions even since he was elected as president.
He said "the president - since he became president a year ago - has gone out of his way to damage not just the morale, but the standing of these institutions in the American peoples' mind."
