President Trump, after being informed by reporters that the Justice Department had dropped charges against Michael Flynn, called the Obama administration “human scum” that had intentionally targeted a duly elected president.
Here are his comments:
He was an innocent man. He is a great gentleman. He was targeted by the Obama administration and he was targeted in order to try and take down a president.
“And what they’ve done is a disgrace and I hope a big price is going to be paid. A big price should be paid. There’s never been anything like this in the history of our country. What they did, what the Obama administration did, is unprecedented. It’s never happened. Never happened. A thing like this has never happened.
“And I hope a lot of people are going to pay a big price because they’re dishonest, crooked people. They’re scum and I say it a lot, they’re scum, they’re human scum. This should never have happened in this country.
“A duly elected president and they went after him by going after fine people and those fine people said, ‘No, I’m not going to lie, I can’t lie’. He’s not the only one. There are many of them. They could have said something like, ‘Oh, make up a lie, Trump loves somebody or something or some country’. And they said, ‘Oh, you wouldn’t have any problem.
“That’s what they were trying to do and it’s a disgrace. The Obama administration Justice Department was a disgrace and they got caught. They got caught. Very dishonest people. But much more than dis – it’s treason, it’s treason.
“So I’m very happy for General Flynn. He was a great warrior and he still is a great warrior. In my book, he’s an even greater warrior.. What happened to him should never happen again and what happened to this presidency, to go through all of that and still do more than any president has ever done in the first three years.
