Former head of FBI counterintelligence Frank Figliuzzi, who is an NBC News analyst, said counterintelligence briefings "provide an opportunity for investigative subjects to be transparent with the bureau and to come back if such contacts are occurring because of admonishments by the bureau".
Several US officials and critics have slammed Trump for seemingly siding with the Russian president over the American intelligence community.
Violent crime increased nationally the past two years but has dropped precipitously over the past quarter century. "They'd stop that. They'd stop it. Police departments are overstretched, they're underfunded, and they're totally under appreciated, except by me", he said. Mr Trump told law enforcement leaders he was "more loyal than anyone else could be" to police.
The Washington Post reported that prior to taking office in January, Trump was under huge pressure to back a United States intelligence report on alleged Russian Federation meddling in presidential elections.
"They have been subject to malicious attacks on their character and integrity", he said, "This anti-police sentiment is wrong and it's unsafe, and we will not stand for it".
"I want to believe the path you threw out for consideration in Andy's office-that there's no way [Trump] gets elected-but I'm afraid we can't take that risk", Mr. Strzok wrote Ms. Page in an August 15, 2016 text. "Anyone who kills a police officer should get the death penalty". He also delivered a stern warning to members of the global gang MS-13 that his administration would root them out and arrest them. "What the hell is happening there?" asked Mr Trump returning to a favourite campaign target. "It is very sad when you look at those documents, how they've done that is really, really disgraceful, and you have a lot of really angry people who are seeing it", Trump said of the document.

"I don't want to talk about pardons for Michael Flynn yet", Trump told reporters outside the White House.
"But what was Peter Strzok doing there in the first place?"
Strzok led the FBI's Hillary Clinton email investigation and briefly served on Mueller's team investigating interference by Russian Federation in the 2016 election.
The speech marked an opportunity for Trump to reaffirm public faith in the federal justice system as the White House faces a special counsel investigation into possible cooperation between his campaign and a covert Russian effort to undermine Hillary Clinton.
He was removed from the team over the summer after the messages were discovered as a part of an ongoing investigation by the DOJ's inspector general into the FBI's actions leading up to the election. Because the event was at the FBI academy but the graduates were law enforcement managers from a professional program who will not join the FBI, it was unclear if Trump's remark was about law enforcement managers or officers or FBI agents. Coursework included intelligence theory, terrorism and terrorist mindsets, law, behavioral science, law enforcement communication, and forensic science.
