Trump claims DOJ inspector general report shows 'attempted overthrow' of the government

<snip>
WASHINGTON – President Donald Trump said a Justice Department's internal watchdog report examining the origins of the Russia investigation shows an "attempted overthrow" of government, pointing to inaccuracies found in FBI surveillance applications related to his 2016 campaign.

The nearly 500-page report, released Monday by Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz, found the FBI was legally justified in opening its inquiry into Russian interference in the 2016 election, but said there were several “significant inaccuracies and omissions” in its surveillance applications to monitor Trump's former foreign policy adviser Carter Page.

"They fabricated evidence and they lied to the courtsand they did all sorts of things to have it go their way," Trump told reporters Monday before a roundtable discussion on education. "This was an attempted overthrow and a lot of people were in on it, and they got caught."

Trump said he was briefed on the report, describing its findings as "a disgrace" and "far worse than anything I would have imagined."

1. ...

"They fabricated evidence and they lied to the courts and they did all sorts of things to have it go their way," Trump told reporters Monday before a roundtable discussion on education.

"This was an attempted overthrow and a lot of people were in on it, and they got caught."

Trump said he was briefed on the report, describing its findings as "a disgrace" and "far worse than anything I would have imagined."


[So sad when a person speaks disparagingly about themselves like this. Tsk, tsk. ]

Got that right. Far worse than anything ANYONE would have imagined.

2. Which in trump speak means

He is trying to overthrow our government and knows what he's doing, and means he knew all along what putins plan was trying to do, and trump did it anyway. He always displays his guilt by his accusations he uses against others.

3. He is not trying - he succeeded

November 2016 was a ReTHUG/Russia coup. History will absolve me.

4. Of course it says no such thing at all.

His followers are such dopes and suckers. They'll buy any old bullshit he spews.

6. Yes the whole IG report, new investigation and ludacris spin, is

all for the base, because the facts don't support their narrative.

10. Actually, he may be repeating the lies he was told

Notice how Trump was "briefed" on the report. He didn't read it. I'm pretty sure that whoever briefed him told him exactly what he wanted to hear.

14. He uses the exact same words.

That's what I was thinking over the past several weeks when you see them using the exact same phrases and terminology. But you know that!

8. Will FOX News agree with Trump or the IG report?

It will be interesting to watch their spin.

9. Shithole projects what he and his cronies are actually doing . . . .

and it's dangerous. I hope that true patriots are monitoring this closely and will be able to act immediately. Hell, impeachment is a start in exposing him and his fucked up party.
