Two days after work done by FBI investigators led former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn to plead guilty to felony charges, President Donald Trump attacked the agency by calling it “tainted” in an early morning Twitter blast.

Reacting to news that special counsel Robert Mueller removed an FBI agent assigned to investigate Russian collusion with White House staffers this past summer due to highly politicized anti-Trump texts exchanged another official, Trump attempted to cast doubt on the whole investigation.

“Tainted (no, very dishonest?) FBI ‘agent’s role in Clinton probe under review.’ Led Clinton Email probe. @foxandfriends Clinton money going to wife of another FBI agent in charge,” Trump tweeted.

Trump later added, “After years of Comey, with the phony and dishonest Clinton investigation (and more), running the FBI, its reputation is in Tatters – worst in History! But fear not, we will bring it back to greatness.”

According to the Washington Post report, Mueller removed the agent months ago specifically to protect the investigation against accusations against bias.

As the Trump tweet notes, the president received his information via Fox & Friends, his go-to cable news source.

Trump’s tweets come hours after he also attacked his own Justice Department.
