“I’ve done a great service for this country by getting rid of him, by firing him.”

President Trump took to Twitter again Thursday morning to continue his messages regarding what he is calling Spygate, the now documented deep state infiltration of his 2016 presidential campaign.
The President hit out at former FBI head James Comey, noting that the rank and file of the FBI are eager to speak out against the man Trump fired.
The President described Comey as “a terrible and corrupt leader who inflicted great pain on the FBI!”
Not surprisingly, the GREAT Men & Women of the FBI are starting to speak out against Comey, McCabe and all of the political corruption and poor leadership found within the top ranks of the FBI. Comey was a terrible and corrupt leader who inflicted great pain on the FBI! #SPYGATE

In a separate interview with “Fox and Friends,” Trump said that “I think of the things that I’ve done for the country, the firing of James Comey is going to go down as a very good thing.”
“How is [Comey] going to explain to his grandchildren all of the lies, the deceit, all of the problems he has caused for this country?” Trump pondered.
“The FBI is great. I know so many people in the FBI. The FBI is a fantastic institution, but some of the people at the top were rotten apples,” Trump said.
“James Comey was one of them. I’ve done a great service for this country by getting rid of him, by firing him.”
In a further tweet, Trump hit out again at former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper:
Clapper has now admitted that there was Spying in my campaign. Large dollars were paid to the Spy, far beyond normal. Starting to look like one of the biggest political scandals in U.S. history. SPYGATE – a terrible thing!
