GOP strategist Susan Del Percio on Friday hit Donald Trump for once again insisting special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation has found “no collusion” between his campaign and the Russia government, explaining that the president doesn’t get a say in what happens with the probe.
Trump on Thursday told the New York Times the Russia investigation makes the United States “look very bad,” and that everybody knows there was “no collusion” on the part of his campaign.
“It would do the president well to remember that the investigation into President [Bill] Clinton was about a real estate deal and it ended up in a blue dress,” Del Perico said. “You don’t get to choose where an investigation goes.”
“He may say there was no collusion and there may not be, but that doesn’t mean there won’t be other things come up,” she added. “We’ve already seen four indictments, two guilty pleas—so the president can talk about what he wants. He thinks if he keeps saying it over and over enough, it’s going to be true, but that’s not the case.”
“The White House team is very nervous,” Del Perico noted. “The president gets very uncomfortable every time there’s a story about something Mueller’s looking at and they should proceed very cautiously.”

Harvard researchers want less accurate tests for COVID-19
The aphorism "perfect is the enemy of good enough" has been played out to tragic effect in the US's inadequate testing for the coronavirus, according to researchers calling for quick tests that cost only about a dollar each, and which may not be as accurate but can be carried out several times a week by the whole population.
Michael Mina, assistant professor of epidemiology at Harvard University, has for weeks been pushing for what he calls "crappy" tests.
His idea is to move away from the current high-precision molecular tests, known as PCR tests, which are still scarce in large swathes of the country and which people often have to wait hours to get done, and then have to wait days -- or up to a week -- for the results.
WATCH: Seth Meyers goes after ‘sociopath’ Jared Kushner for America’s coronavirus failures
The host of "Late Night with Seth Meyers" on NBC harshly criticized senior White House advisor Jared Kushner for America's COVID-19 testing failures.
"More than 155,000 Americans have now died from the coronavirus pandemic," Meyers noted. "Cases are rising in more than 20 states. The U.S. now accounts for one-quarter of all coronavirus deaths in the world."
"And in some parts of the country, people are waiting as long as two-weeks to get their test results -- which is insane. The whole point of testing is to find cases, isolate them and trace their contacts. If it takes two weeks, it's pointless."
Virologist rips Deborah Birx: ‘She’s ignored the evidence’ with her ‘willful disregard for the science’
The White House coronavirus coordinator continues to lose support among the medical community, according to a new report in The Washington Post.
The report noted Dr. Deborah Birx has also been undermined by Trump, who attacked her on Twitter.
So Crazy Nancy Pelosi said horrible things about Dr. Deborah Birx, going after her because she was too positive on the very good job we are doing on combatting the China Virus, including Vaccines & Therapeutics. In order to counter Nancy, Deborah took the bait & hit us. Pathetic!
