Trump: If Mueller ‘Was Doing An Honest Report, He’d Write It On The Other Side’

President Donald Trump told reporters on Friday that if Robert Mueller were “writing an honest report,” he would be writing about the collusion that he believes took place on the Democratic side.

“Mr. Mueller has a lot of conflicts also directly yourself, you know that. Mr. Mueller is highly conflicted,” Trump said, addressing reporters just prior to boarding Marine One on the White House lawn. “In fact, Comey is like his best friend. I could go into conflict after conflict. But sadly, Mr. Mueller is conflicted.”

The president continued, repeating his own claims of innocence and pointing the blame at Democrats, “But let him write his report. We did nothing. There is no collusion. But if he was doing an honest report, he would write it on the other side, because when you look at criminality and you look at problems, take a look at what they did, including colluding with the Russians, the other side.”
