President Donald Trump cited former U.S. attorney Joe DiGenova’s analysis Wednesday of the questions special counsel Robert Mueller wants to ask him.

DiGenova first made his analysis during a hit on The Michael Smerconish Program on Tuesday. Sean Hannity played it Fox News later that night.

The former U.S. attorney continued “to ask questions as Mr. Mueller apparently processed to do about what the president was thinking when he fired Comey or Flynn or anybody else is in outrageous sophomoric, juvenile intrusion into the president’s unfettered power to fire anyone in the executive branch.”

“It is a symptom of how ridiculous this appointment was by Rod Rosenstein when he made the appointment with no evidence of a crime.”

Trump has railed against the investigation in recent weeks, and described the recently leaked questions a “set up.”
