As questions are being raised about the impartiality of the FBI agents working with Robert Mueller, President Donald Trump has taken to Twitter to go after the FBI. The tweets have people worried that Trump may end up firing Mueller, which they claim would be an abuse of power.

CNN legal analyst Paul Callan said he was at first very angry that Trump would publicly go after the FBI, but as more and more information has come to light, he actually changed his mind.

“Originally, I was angered at the president's attacks on the FBI,” Callan said. “I thought they were unjustified.”

“But when I started to delve into the facts, boy there's some really disturbing stuff here," he continued. "What [Sen.] Grassley is talking about is this agent, his name is Strzok and he's a counterintelligence agent for the FBI, he's exchanging text messages with his girlfriend, Lisa Page, which just trashed the president.”

“The lawyer and the agent agreed [Trump], the president, is a threat or would be a threat to the country if elected,” he added.

Callan pointed out Peter Strzok was also heavily involved in the investigation of Hillary Clinton's email server and how he changed the language in the report to make her actions non-criminal.
