At his rally in Hershey, Pa., Trump said, “Did I hear he needed a restraining order after this whole thing to keep him away from Lisa? That’s what I heard. I don’t know if it’s true.”
His comment followed the Monday release of a report on a Justice Department internal watchdog investigation which found some issues with the application process for surveilling a former Trump campaign aide, but did not find evidence of political bias.
The president and his allies have alleged that there was political bias behind the surveillance, and have pointed to texts between Page and Strzok that were critical of Trump.
Inspector General Michael Horowitz, who led the probe, testified Wednesday before the House.
