Speaking from the South Lawn today before departing the White House for New Orleans, Trump calls former FBI and Justice Department officials known scoundrels and dirty cops. He was reacting to a New York Times report that law enforcement officials began investigating, in 2017, whether Trump had been working on behalf of Russia against U.S. interests.
