President Trump seized on the 17th anniversary of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks to launch dubious assaults on the FBI and Justice Department.
The president repeated an unfounded allegation by Rep. Mark Meadows, R-N.C., who claimed former FBI officials Peter Strzok and Lisa Page employed a “media leak strategy” to undermine his administration, the Washington Post reports.
Trump then criticized the FBI and Justice for failing to act on the dubious claim.
Strzok’s attorney said the “media leak strategy” was referring to an effort to tackle unauthorized disclosures to reporters.
New Strzok-Page texts reveal “Media Leak Strategy.” @FoxNews  So terrible, and NOTHING is being done at DOJ or FBI – but the world is watching, and they get it completely.
