Hours after the report was released, Wray told ABC News, “I think it’s important that the inspector general found that in this particular instance the investigation was opened with appropriate predication and authorization.”
Trump — who has attempted to claim victory after the report’s release, calling the Russia investigation an “attempted overthrow” and an “embarrassment” — publicly slammed the FBI director on Twitter Tuesday morning.
“I don’t know what report current Director of the FBI Christopher Wray was reading, but it sure wasn’t the one given to me. With that kind of attitude, he will never be able to fix the FBI, which is badly broken despite having some of the greatest men & women working there!” Trump wrote.
CNN has reached out to the White House to ask if Trump has asked Wray to resign.
