On Thursday, CNN’s Wolf Blitzer grilled Congressman Ted Yoho (R-FL) over the Special Counsel Robert Muller’s probe into President Donald Trump.
“Is it appropriate, congressman, for the president’s attorney Rudy Giuliani to be treating this investigation as a political football?” Blitzer asked.
“I think Rudy Giuliani is doing what he thinks is best for the president to move forward,” Yoho said. “This investigation really needs to go away. On Russian collusion and Russian meddling in our election: We know they meddled. There is no evidence of collusion. The FISA warrants were issued on those pretenses.”
Blitzer interrupted him before he could finish his thought.
“Excuse me for interrupting, but we don’t know what Mueller has. He’s been very silent. We don’t know if he has evidence of collusion or conspiracy or cooperation or any of those areas,” Blitzer explained. “We know the investigation is continuing. But you know how this investigation can be wrapped up right away? If the president agrees to sit down with the Special Counsel and his team and answer questions. Why not simply do that?”
Again, Yoho called the investigation a false pretense.
Blitzer corrected him again.
“I just want to correct you. You keep saying it’s a false pretense. Do you agree the Russians did meddle in the U.S. presidential elections in 2016?”
