President Trump took a swing at special counsel Robert Mueller’s team and the entire Russia investigation on Thursday, claiming they are “rigged” against him.

The president called for Mr. Mueller and the Democrats involved with the investigation to identify any conflicts of interests.

Mr. Trump specifically discredited FBI agent Peter Strzok and his testimony and denied any Russian collusion during the 2016 election.

The president suggested that the investigation should be extended to Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton and the Democratic National Committee. 

The FBI agent spent 11 hours behind closed doors on Wednesday, testifying before both the House Judiciary and House Intelligence committees.

Mr. Strzok fell under heavy criticism after the Justice Department inspector Ggeneral’s report revealed that he and another FBI employee, Lisa Page, exchanged blatantly negative messages about Mr. Trump.

Mr. Strzok, who was a part of both the Clinton email and Russia investigations, lost his security clearance earlier this month.
