President Trump answered a series of questions on the White House lawn as he departed for the NRA convention Friday, and one reporter asked if Trump would be sitting down with Mueller to answer questions about the Russia investigation.
Trump was hesitant about sitting for an interview because of the political affiliations of some of the Mueller agents. The president said, “You have a group of investigators that are all Democrats. In some cases they went to the Hillary Clinton celebration,” referring to Clinton’s election night celebration in New York City. Trump continued, “That turned out to be a funeral.”
The president went on to say that he would “love” to sit down with Mueller for an interview.
“I would love to speak because we’ve done nothing wrong,” Trump said. “There was no collusion with the Russians. There was nothing. There was no obstruction.”
Trump concluded his comments by calling the investigation a “witch hunt,” saying, “I would love to go and speak but I have to find we will be treated fairly.”
