WASHINGTON - President Donald Trump is attacking his own FBI in a series of tweets and says the law enforcement agency's reputation is "in Tatters - worst in History!" The president says in a tweet that "we will bring it back to greatness."
  
The president was responding to reports that a veteran FBI counterintelligence agent was removed from special counsel Robert Mueller's team investigating Russian election meddling because of anti-Trump text messages.
  
He writes after years under fired FBI director James Comey, "with the phony and dishonest Clinton investigation (and more)," the agency's reputation "is in Tatters - worst in History!'" The president also retweeted a tweet suggesting FBI Director Chris Wray "needs to clean house."
  
The president said earlier Sunday he never asked Comey to stop investigating ex-national security adviser Michael Flynn.
