President Trump pushed-back against the mainstream media’s never-ending Trump-Russia collusion conspiracy theory Wednesday night, telling reporters he’d be happy to talk with Robert Mueller; adding he’d have no problem speaking with the special counsel’s office “under oath.”
The President was speaking with reporters Wednesday evening when he doubled-down on previous statements that he’d be more than willing to speak with the Special Counsel’s office; mocking critics who viciously attacked the President for “fighting back” against the collusion conspiracy theory.
“There’s been no collusion whatsoever,” Trump told journalists Wednesday evening. “There’s no obstruction whatsoever. And I’m looking forward to it […] I would do it under oath.”
“I couldn’t have cared less about Russians having to do with my campaign. The fact is — you people won’t say this but I’ll say it — I was a much better candidate than her,” Trump added, referring to former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.
The President’s comments come just days after the special counsel’s office met with Attorney General Jeff Sessions; the most senior member of the President’s cabinet to speak with Mueller regarding Russian meddling in the 2016 general election.
