Trump just broke his silence on today’s FBI raids on his lawyer’s offices [WATCH]

- 16.36

President Trump just made his first public comments about the FBI raid on his lawyer Michael Cohen’s office, home, and hotel room today, and, as you can imagine, he’s not a happy camper.

The president addressed the raid before a meeting to discuss Syria with military leadership in a meeting this afternoon.

Calling the raid “a disgraceful situation,” Trump continued to characterize the investigation into his campaign, its collusion with Russia, and the campaign finance issues raised by the $130,000 payment made to Stormy Daniels for her silence about their affair as a “witch hunt constantly going on.”

Somehow conflating an investigation and document seizure authorised by a judge who would need to see at least some evidence of serious criminal wrongdoing before giving the go ahead for the raid with “an attack on our country” and “what we all stand for,” Trump again attacked both Special Counsel Robert Mueller and his own Attorney General Jeff Sessions.

The president called the Special Counsel’s office “the most conflicted group of people I have ever seen,” before lashing into Sessions for recusing himself from the investigation, lamenting that he would have nominated someone else had he known that the recusal was coming.

He also predictably continued to try to point fingers at Hillary Clinton and her email scandal, which the FBI long ago established was a non-issue, and, even if there was anything improper done with classified email on a private server, would be a minor infraction compared to the treasonous and highly illegal activities being investigated by Mueller’s team.

The question now being asked around the country is whether this latest move instigated by Mueller’s team will be the straw that breaks Trump’s back and leads to Trump’s firing of the Special Counsel. If Trump thinks he can get away with it, then all bets are off on what may happen next.

You can watch Trump’s comments in the video clips below.
