President Donald Trump said in a new interview he hopes that declassifying some of the documents that helped kick off the Russia probe will be one of the "crowning achievements" of his presidency because he said they will expose corruption at the FBI.
Trump sat down with John Solomon and Buck Sexton of The Hill related to FISA warrant applications the FBI obtained to spy on people in Trump's orbit during and after the 2016 presidential election.
"I hope to be able put this up as one of my crowning achievements that I was able to ... expose something that is truly a cancer in our country," Trump said.
"What we've done is a great service to the country, really. I hope to be able to call this, along with tax cuts and regulation and all the things I've done … in its own way this might be the most important thing because this was corrupt."
Trump has long claimed that the FBI investigation into whether his campaign had improper ties to Russia is a "witch hunt." A special counsel investigation has indicted several Russians for trying to interfere with the election process, but no evidence has been made public that shows there was collusion.
Trump told The Hill, "All I want to do is be transparent."
