Trump threatens to get involved if FBI, Justice Dept ‘don’t do their jobs’

EVANSVILLE: United States (US) President Donald Trump, speaking to a raucous, campaign-style rally in Indiana, warned that the US Justice Department and the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) must “start doing their job and doing it right” or “I will get involved.”

Trump, who has repeatedly criticized the department over its handling of a probe into alleged Russian interference in the 2016 election campaign, suggested its leadership was biased against Republicans and that “people are angry.”

“Our Justice Department and our FBI – at the top of each, because inside they have incredible people – but our Justice Department and our FBI have to start doing their job and doing it right and doing it now,” Trump also said.

“I wanted to stay out, but at some point, if it doesn’t straighten out properly, I will get involved and I will get in there if I have to,” he added.
