President Trump recently responded to the newly announced hearing to special counsel Robert Mueller, saying “it never ends.”
In an interview Wednesday, the president reiterated his position that there was no collusion and no obstruction regarding the investigation. He then pointed the finger at the other side of the aisle, saying the real crime was committed by the Democrats.
The president then called out Mueller’s alleged cover-up of disgraced FBI agents Peter Strzok and Lisa Page. He said Mueller purged thousands of text messages and emails of the two former officials after they were caught sending anti-Trump messages to each other during the probe.
“He terminated the emails, he terminated all of the stuff between Strzok and Page…Robert Mueller terminated their text messages…they’re gone, and that’s illegal…that’s a crime…”
