President Trump lashed out at former FBI Director James Comey on Wednesday, after transcripts of FBI agent Lisa Page’s testimony revealed that the Justice Department shut down the FBI’s efforts to charge Hillary Clinton with “gross negligence” in 2016.

Trump tweeted: Comey testified (under oath) that it was a “unanimous” decision on Crooked Hillary. Lisa Page transcripts show he LIED.

The president also tweeted about Democrat lawmakers’ efforts to stop his National Emergency Declaration, and encouraged Republicans to stand strong. In a two-part statement, he wrote:

Democrats will have a unanimous vote on a 20% issue in opposing Republican Senators tomorrow. The Dems are for Open Borders and Crime!

Republican Senators are overthinking tomorrow’s vote on National Emergency. It is very simply Border Security/No Crime – Should not be thought of any other way. We have a MAJOR NATIONAL EMERGENCY at our Border and the People of our Country know it very well!

President Trump also shared a video clip of his statement Wednesday afternoon, in which he ordered the FAA to immediately ground all Boeing 737 MAX 8 and MAX 9 aircraft in the U.S., following the deadly crash in Ethiopia. The United States was the last nation to ground the jets.
