Lou Dobbs, a Fox Business Network host who has emerged as one of President TrumpDonald John Trump2020 Democrats spar over socialism ahead of first debate Senate passes .5 billion border bill, setting up fight with House 'Teflon Don' avoids the scorn of the 'family values' GOP — again MORE’s staunchest defenders, berated the FBI on Friday, saying it was filled with corrupt agents and “a legion of evildoers.”

“We've got all of the folks in the FBI, corrupt, politically corrupt. We have got just a legion of evildoers that have been exposed primarily as a result of the House Intelligence Committee and some credit goes as well to the Office of the Inspector General at the Department of Justice,” he said on "Lou Dobbs Tonight."

“Where are the consequences for being insidious and awful and a lawbreaker?” he asked, citing Fusion GPS and Christopher Steele for their involvement in a dossier that includes scandalous, unverified links between Trump and the Kremlin.

The FBI declined to comment on Dobbs's remarks.

The criticism from Dobbs comes after a flurry of activity from special counsel Robert MuellerRobert (Bob) Swan MuellerTop Republican considered Mueller subpoena to box in Democrats Kamala Harris says her Justice Dept would have 'no choice' but to prosecute Trump for obstruction Dem committees win new powers to investigate Trump MORE's team.

Trump’s former attorney and fixer Michael Cohen was sentenced Wednesday to three years in prison for a slew of charges, including two campaign finance violations that he says took place at Trump's direction. It was also recently revealed that Cohen lied to Congress about 2016 discussions about a Trump Tower Moscow, with Cohen admitting that the discussions went further into 2016 than previously known and that Trump was kept abreast of the conversations.

“Nothing at the Trump Organization was ever done unless it was run through Mr. Trump," Cohen told ABC News on Friday in his first interview since his sentencing. "He directed me to make the payments, he directed me to become involved in these matters."

“I gave loyalty to someone who truthfully does not deserve loyalty,” he added.

Trump and his allies have panned Mueller and his inquiry into possible collusion between the Trump campaign and Moscow, with many dubbing it a “witch hunt.”
