“The whole thing is ridiculous, if you want to know the truth,” Trump told Fox News’ Ainsley Earhardt about Mueller hiring Clinton supporters.
President Donald Trump told Fox News’ Ainsley Earhardt that he thought Robert Mueller’s friendship with former FBI Director James Comey was bothersome, but that overall he thought Mueller was an honorable man during an interview that aired on Friday.
Earhardt asked Trump if Mueller should recuse himself from the position of Special Counsel overseeing the investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election given his friendship with Comey and his hiring of several attorneys who have ties to Hillary Clinton.
“Well, he’s very, very, good friends with Comey, which is very bothersome,” Trump told Earhardt. “There has been no obstruction. There has been no collusion. There has been leaking, by Comey, but there’s been no collusion, no obstruction, and virtually everybody agrees to that.”
Trump also expressed his concern about some fo Muller’s hires, telling Earhardt, “I can say that the people that have been hired are all Hillary Clinton supporters, some of them worked for Hillary Clinton, I mean, the whole thing is ridiculous, if you want to know the truth.”
“Robert Mueller is an honorable man, and hopefully he’ll come up with an honorable conclusion,” Trump concluded.
