President Donald Trump on Friday denied that he was agitated by special counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation. But he quickly attacked the investigation as a “hoax” and “witch hunt.”
“I’m not agitated, it’s a hoax,” Trump said. “The whole thing is a hoax.”
A reporter in the White House noted that Trump seemed particularly unhappy with Mueller on Thursday morning.
“No, it’s just a continuation,” Trump replied. “You can go — there should have never been an investigation because there was never anything done wrong. There was no collusion.”
“You would have known about it a long time ago if there was. There was nothing — they should have never had it. They have wasted millions and millions of dollars,” the president continued.
Trump described the investigation as a “witch hunt,” but insisted that Mueller would not cause problems for him. “I’m sure it will be just fine,” he remarked.
