Dem Rep: Trump’s FBI Attacks ‘The Conduct of Someone Who Could Become a Tyrant’

Democratic Congresswoman Jackie Speier said on MSNBC today she is alarmed by President Trump‘s attacks on the FBI and is concerned about where it could lead.

MSNBC’s Katy Tur asked Speier if she has any concerns about potential witness tampering by the President.

Speier said, “I am concerned that the President of the United States is systematically trying to shut down every possible branch of government but the presidency.”

She continued:

“You’ve got him attacking the judiciary, you have him attacking the CIA, you have him attacking the Department of Justice, the FBI. I mean, this is the conduct of someone who could become a tyrant if we don’t step in and speak out against him.”

In the past few days, Speier has expressed similar concerns on Twitter:
