Trump criticised FBI after texts reveal agent called him a ’loathsome human’

Donald Trump has again criticised the FBI, this time at one of its own graduation ceremonies.

He has attacked it after text messages emerged of one of its agents and a lawyer calling him a "loathsome human" and an "idiot".

The president also hinted he could yet pardon Michael Flynn, a former national security adviser.

He is the most senior figure so far charged in connection with ties to Russia.

"Well, it’s a shame what’s happened with the FBI. How they’ve done that is really, really disgraceful and you have a lot of very angry people that are seeing it," President Trump said.

"It’s a very sad thing to watch, I’ll tell you that."
