President Donald Trump has described a veteran FBI counter-intelligence agent who used to be part of the team investigating Russian meddling in the US election as a Tainted agent.
According to President Trump, the agency needs a dramatic overhaul under new FBI director Christopher Wray.
The counter-intelligent agent was removed during the summer after the discovery of exchange of text messages viewed as potentially anti-Trump.
The agent had also worked on the investigation of Hillary Clinton's use of a private email server.
