FBI agents involved in Russia investigation called Donald Trump an 'idiot'

FBI agents involved in Russia investigation called Donald Trump an 'idiot'Two FBI officials who would later be assigned to the special counsel’s investigation into Donald Trump’s presidential campaign described him with insults like “idiot” and “loathsome human” in a series of text messages last year, according to copies of the messages. Peter Strzok, a veteran FBI counterintelligence agent, was removed over the summer from special counsel Robert Mueller’s team following the discovery of text messages exchanged with Lisa Page, an FBI lawyer who was also detailed this year to the group of agents and prosecutors investigating potential coordination between Russia and Mr Trump’s Republican campaign. Hundreds of the messages, which surfaced in a Justice Department inspector general investigation of the FBI’s inquiry into Democrat Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server, were being provided to congressional committees and were reviewed by The Associated Press on Tuesday.
