Report: Trump Nixes Visit to FBI Headquarters

President Donald Trump has reportedly backed out of a planned visit to FBI headquarters this week. According to NBC News, Trump was told “it was not likely he would be warmly welcomed” after he fired the agency’s director, James Comey, on Tuesday. “My sense is most FBI employees feel a loyalty to Comey,” an FBI employee told NBC News. “And whether they agree or disagree with the way he handled the email case, like and respect him... Trump would not be well-received at the headquarters.” White House spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders told reporters Wednesday that Comey had lost the support of the FBI’s rank-and-file, but Acting Director Andrew McCabe pushed back on that account at a Senate Intelligence Committee hearing Thursday, telling lawmakers Comey was well-respected and liked.
