Trump calls Department of Justice report a 'total disaster' for Comey

"That was the most biased set of circumstances I've ever seen in my life", he told "Fox & Friends" on the North Lawn of the White House early Friday.

"We're well on our way to denuclearization", Trump said, adding that he "saved a lot of money by agreeing to halt military exercises with South Korea".

But Trump has ramped up his language on the report and has trained his sights on Comey in particular. It also said some FBI agents showed anti-Trump bias, but that bias did not affect the investigation.

Mueller is looking into the alleged Russian interference in the 2016 US presidential election and any potential collusion between the Trump campaign and Moscow, among other matters that may arise from the investigation.

The report will contain additional text messages between the two that have not yet been released to the public.

Trump added: "It was a pretty good report and then I say that the IG blew it at the very end with that statement". He also quoted lawyer and Fox News talking head Mark Levin, who said "Donald Trump was 100% right to fire James Comey".

As the FBI investigated both candidates running for president in 2016, two Federal Bureau of Investigation employees exchanged thousands of personal texts and messages that included a running political commentary - including newly released messages in which one of them expressed a desire to "stop" the election of Donald Trump.

Trump also took aim at Comey - who he fired in May 2017 and whose reputation he has since sought to tarnish in the expectation he could be a witness against him in the encroaching Russian Federation investigation. The firing, in part, kicked off the appointment of Special Counsel Robert Mueller to look into Russia's interference in the 2016 election and whether Trump obstructed an investigation of it. One bit of irony unearthed by the report was that FBI officials, notably Comey himself, used personal email accounts to conduct bureau business.

"The opinions I care the most about are the opinions of the people who actually really know us and know us through our work", he said. Doesn't get any lower than that!

The President on Friday took issue with the report's conclusion. The IG found the text messages sullied the FBI's reputation and "cast a cloud" over its investigation into Democrat Hillary Clinton's email but did not affect the investigation itself. Trump tweeted on Friday.

The report, released Thursday, called Comey's actions in the Hillary Clinton email investigation "extraordinary and insubordinate" and flouted the department's norms, but concluded that Comey was not motivated by political bias.

The 500-page document stops far short of endorsing the attacks levied at Comey for the a year ago by President Donald Trump.
