President TrumpDonald TrumpRomney: 'Pretty sure' Trump would win 2024 GOP nomination if he ran for president Pence huddles with senior members of Republican Study Committee Trump says 'no doubt' Tiger Woods will be back after accident MORE asserted Friday that a transcript of former FBI agent Peter Strzok's closed-door testimony last year was "devastating" for the FBI and Department of Justice, arguing that the transcript proved that his campaign was under investigation as early as 2015.

“'New evidence that the Obama era team of the FBI, DOJ & CIA were working together to Spy on (and take out) President Trump, all the way back in 2015.' A transcript of Peter Strzok’s testimony is devastating. Hopefully the Mueller Report will be covering this," the president tweeted.

It was unclear what exactly in Strzok's testimony the president referred to in his tweet, as Strzok did not appear to confirm any alleged acts of wrongdoing in the testimony released on Thursday.
