Trump admits that Russia & # 39; helped me to be elected & # 39; in 2016, but denies it minutes later – and insists on & # 39; Never Trumper & # 39; Mueller would have impeded him & # 39; if he had something & # 39;
- President beat Robret Mueller and his team on Thursday, after which he was put in a final blow after the special counsel announced his departure from the DOJ
- Trump tweeted that the Mueller probe had strayed far from his mission to investigate Russia, which he admitted it & # 39; helped me to be elected & # 39; in 2016.
- He denied that a few minutes later in a question and answer with reporters and said, "Do you know who chose me?" I have chosen & # 39;
- Trump taunted Mueller as a & # 39; Never Trumper & # 39; who was angry that the president did not offer him the job of James Comey who ran the FBI
- It also insisted that Hillary Clinton would have been a much more Moscow-friendly president than he was
In a stunning admission on Thursday, Donald Trump said on Twitter that Russians involved in the 2016 presidential match between him and Hillary Clinton & # 39; helped me get elected & # 39; – but he declined that statement a few minutes later.
& # 39; Russia did not choose me. Do you know who chose me? Do you know who chose me? I chose, & the president said to reporters in the White House and pointed a finger at his own face.
& # 39; Russia has not helped me at all. Russia, if anything, I think, helped the other party, & he said.
The president had started his morning clutter on the final chapter in the two-year story of Special Counsel Robert Mueller, who sparked a new round of controversy on Wednesday by re-entering the old ground when he left the Department of Justice.
President Trump said in a half-hour time on Thursday that Russia was helping him win his elections, and that didn't happen
The president turned to Robert Mueller and said the former special council had approached him with resentment for not being allowed to return to the position of the FBI director he had once held in a previous government
The president started Thursday morning by admitting on Twitter that Russia & # 39; helped me to be elected & quot; & quot; but walked back minutes later when he left the White House to leave for Colorado
Trump seemed to complain to the press that the ride from Mueller to the sunset was treated as a memorable event because his probe failed to put a glove on the White House.
& # 39; There were no charges. None, & # 39; Trump told DailyMail.com while leaving the lawn on Thursday in the south, claiming that & # 39; that means you are innocent & # 39 ;.
& # 39; There was no crime. There was no impediment, there was no conspiracy, there was nothing, & he said about the result of Mueller & # 39; s lengthy and costly investigation.
& # 39; And this is from a group of people who hate me. If only they had found something, they would have had it. And he knows that better than anyone. & # 39;
Trump complained that Russian election efforts, which launched the Mueller probe, became a side issue since the special council team focused on whether he was blocking an investigation into a non-crime.
& # 39; Russia, Russia, Russia! That's all you heard at the start of this Witch Hunt Hoax, & he wrote on Thursday. & # 39; And now Russia has disappeared because I had nothing to do with Russia that helped me to be elected. It was a crime that did not exist. & # 39;
& # 39; This was all about Russia, Russia and Russia & # 39 ;, he later told reporters. & # 39; They no longer talk about Russia. & # 39;
& # 39; The whole thing is scam. It's a huge presidential intimidation, & he said.
Russian President Vladimir Putin is probably behind a modest online campaign to sow dissidents and chaos among Americans during the 2016 presidential election season
Trump stated, as he has done in recent years, that the Kremlin leaders now regret some involvement in the American elections that helped him.
& # 39; I believe that Russia would rather have Hillary Clinton as President of the United States than Donald Trump, & # 39; he said. & # 39; The reason is that nobody has been harder against Russia than against me. & # 39;
Trump left to talk to US Air Force Academy graduates in Colorado.
He took what could be his last chance to open up Mueller without creating a news cycle out of the blue, saying that the special council was directed against him because he had refused to hire him as a replacement for the dismissed FBI director James Comey.
Subsequently, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein hired Mueller to lead an independent Russia investigation the following day.
& # 39; I think Mueller is a real & # 39; Never Trumper & # 39; He is someone who doesn't like Donald Trump, & the president said Thursday.
& # 39; He's someone who didn't get a job that he really wanted. And then he was disappointed. & # 39;
