Fmr. AG On Trump Officials Meeting With Russian Officials: There Is Nothing To Prosecute


On Sunday, former Bush Attorney General Michael Mukasey said that there is nothing to prosecute when it comes to the matter of Trump campaign officials meeting with Russian officials, and went on to say the only crime committed was by the Russians.

ABC’s Martha Raddatz asked Mukasey given all the accusations regarding contact between Trump campaign aides and Russian officials whether the administration should call for a special prosecutor to investigate the matter and clear the air.

“No, there’s nothing to prosecute. The only crime that I’ve heard about or seen evidence of that was committed, was committed by the Russians when they hacked the DNC, they hacked John Podesta, and they tried to hack the Republican National Committee,” Mukasey told Raddatz.

Mukasey went on to say that people who are claiming that Russia did this to help get Donald Trump elected President are being “ridiculous.”

“Some people say it was committed to promoting the election of Donald Trump. I happen to think that’s ridiculous because at the time that it happened Donald Trump looked like a sure loser. And you’d have to believe Vladimir Putin was an idiot trying to back a sure loser. I think much more likely he was trying to intimidate a sure winner, Secretary Clinton.”
