President Donald Trump is accusing the FBI and the Department of Justice (DOJ) of failing to act during his campaign’s investigation into widespread voter fraud allegations.
During his first television interview since Election Day with Fox News’s Maria Bartiromo, she asked Trump whether the FBI and DOJ have been investigating his claims.
“Missing in action, can’t tell you where they are. I ask are they looking at it, everyone says, ‘Yes they’re looking at it.’ Look where are they with Comey, McCabe and all these other people?” Trump said.
He added, “I said I’ll stay out of it. I wish I didn’t make that statement. There’s no reason really why I have to.”
Trump accused Comey, McCabe, and Brennan of lying to Congress and spying on his campaign.

Trump said career employees the FBI and DOJ “keep moving along and they go on to the next president.”
He continued, “They’ve been there for a long time. People don’t understand this, they’ve been there for a long time. Some of them have served a lot of different presidents and they have their own views.”
Trump noted the FBI is looking into Dominion Voting Systems.
Dominion Voting Systems is a company that sells voting equipment.
“Nobody even knows where they’re based, which nobody even knows where votes are counted,” Trump said.
He claimed, “You know the votes in Dominion, they say, are counted in foreign countries, okay, can you believe this?”
The president argued the only way elections are going to be safe are through paper votes.
The Trump campaign continues to take legal action to overturn election results.
“When you see what happened in Detroit, Atlanta, Philadelphia and Milwaukee, massive voter fraud, he’s got a big unsolvable problem!” Trump wrote on Twitter Friday.
