“Will you pledge — pledge that you will not shut down the Mueller investigation?” “60 minutes” correspondent Lesley Stahl asked Trump, who retorted, “Well, I — I don’t pledge anything. But I will tell you, I have no intention of doing that. I think it’s a very unfair investigation because there was no collusion of any kind.”
Trump continued “There is no collusion. I don’t wanna pledge. Why should I pledge to you?… I have no intention of doing that.” The president also raised the possibility of firing Attorney General Jeff Sessions, saying that he would be taking a look at his position after the midterm elections.
