Trump’s ‘red line’: President warns Mueller against looking too closely into his family’s finances

Published

on

In a bombshell interview, President Donald Trump said Special Prosecutor Robert Mueller looking into his and his family’s finances would cross a “red line.”

In the same New York Times article where Trump claimed he never would have hired Attorney General Jeff Sessions if he knew he planned on recusing himself from the Russia probe, the president also vented about Mueller’s investigation — and even expressed his belief that he personally isn’t under investigation.

“Asked if Mr. Mueller’s investigation would cross a red line if it expanded to look at his family’s finances beyond any relationship to Russia,” the report reads, “Mr. Trump said, ‘I would say yes.’ He would not say what he would do about it. ‘I think that’s a violation. Look, this is about Russia.'”

“I don’t think we’re under investigation,” Trump told the Times. “I’m not under investigation. For what? I didn’t do anything wrong.”

During the interview, Trump also touched on his informal second meeting with Vladimir Putin at the G-20 summit earlier this month, which he claims lasted 15 minutes and mostly consisted of “pleasantries.” He did note, however, that they discussed “adoption,” and reiterated the White House-drafted story that Donald Trump, Jr.’s meeting with Russian attorney Natalia Veselnitskaya was about the same topic.
