Trump on Special Counsel: ‘Entire Thing Has Been a Witch Hunt… Russia is Fine’

WASHINGTON — President Trump told reporters this afternoon that he does “respect” Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein’s decision to appoint former FBI Director Robert Mueller as special counsel overseeing the Russia campaign investigation, “but the entire thing has been a witch hunt.”

That echoed Trump’s morning tweet: “This is the single greatest witch hunt of a politician in American history!”

Speaking alongside Colombian President Juan Manuel Santos in the East Room of the White House, Trump added, “And there is no collusion between certainly myself and my campaign. But I can always speak for myself and the Russians — zero. I think it divides the country. I think we have a very divided country because of that and many other things.”

    Democrat Alan Dershowitz: I Don’t See Any Evidence of Collusion – Even if There Was That’s Not a Crime

    • Clausewitz

      Was listening to some American Radio today when I heard this tidbit, “The absence of evidence does not conotate innocence”. This is the Democrat mindset at it’s best. It not about proof, it’s about feelings.

      • Watchman

        As well as the paranoid reasoning that says, “Absence of evidence is positive proof that the Russians were involved since only the Russians have the power to eliminate all evidence of their involvement”, also known as “The less proof we have the more proof we have” theory.

    Maxine Waters: Putin Invented “Lock Her Up” and “Crooked Hillary” for Trump

    • BillyHW

      I thought Maxine Waters would know that this is a man’s world.

      • FactsWillOut

        No, Billy, we are currently living in a woman’s world, that’s why its burning down.
        Once its ruined enough, we men shall come out to rebuild, but this time, maybe, we won’t let them have contraceptives, and all that goes along with that, like the vote, etc.

        • Clausewitz

          Think he war riffing on a old James Brown tune. Seems he and Maxine share the same wig designer.

          aaaahhhh noooooooooo…

          It was men that created Parliament to “TALK” is out instead of using fists

      • Justin St.Denis

        She’s wearing a man’s wig. I think she thinks she’s in on the joke. Auntie Maxine is a few sandwiches short of a picnic….

  • Raymond Hietapakka

    The Democrats are pounding on this Russian thing like it’s an impotent penis…

    • Justin St.Denis

      And Dems don’t understand that that penis just isn’t “into you”. Sigh.

  • simus1

    The DemocRats have such contempt for Trump’s working class supporters that they think creating a big hullabaloo about Trump being a Putin stooge selling out America will be believed and scatter his fair weather fans like chased rabbits. What loonies.

  • I am still waiting for a satisfactory answer as to why Clinton and Obama can be duplicitous.

    I shant hold my breath.
