President Trump was pressed by ABC News’ George Stephanopoulos on whether he sought the removal of Special Counsel Robert Mueller and why he didn’t answer questions from Mueller about obstruction.

At one point during the heated exchange, Trump accused Stephanopoulos of “being a little wise guy” with the line of questioning.

“Wait a minute. I did answer questions. I answered them in writing,” Trump said, after being asked by Stephanopoulos why he would not answer questions in person from Mueller’s investigators.

Stephanopoulos answered, “Not on obstruction.”

To which Trump quipped back, “George, you’re being a little wise guy, OK, which is, you know, typical for you,” Trump said.

“Just so you understand. Very simple. It’s very simple. There was no crime. There was no collusion. The big thing’s collusion. Now, there’s no collusion. That means they set, it was a setup, in my opinion, and I think it’s going to come out.”

McGahn’s Testimony Is Irrelevant

Earlier in the interview, Trump said it “doesn’t matter” that his former White House counsel Don McGahn told Mueller that Trump wanted Mueller removed over an alleged conflict of interest.

“The story on that very simply, No. 1, I was never going to fire Mueller. I never suggested firing Mueller,” Trump said, adding McGahn “may have been confused” when he testified to Mueller.

“I don’t care what he says, it doesn’t matter,” Trump said, prompting Stephanopoulos to ask why McGahn would “lie under oath.”

“Because he wanted to make himself look like a good lawyer,” Trump said, insisting he never said Mueller should be removed.

  1. MR. TRUMP SHOULD HAVE KNOWN THAT GETTING ANYWHERE NEAR STEPINAWFULSHIT HE IS GOING TO TRY TO TRIP YOU UP FOR A GOTCHA . SINCE HE IS NOTHING BUT A LEFTSIST CLINTON PIMP.

  2. I am getting pretty tired, as are most US Citizens, of this constant badgering of President Trump. It only demonstrates the human garbage elected to public office.

  3. How true this sad government is, the only thing these politician’s care about is their career at taxpayers expense and staying in power. they flip flop over policies all the time, you can not take these people seriously. They lie like a rug. They protect violent demonstrators, they look the other way when members of the Democrat party members commit the same infractions that they accuse the others of doing. They are nothing but a joke. Pelosi is a joke. Omar is a joke and so is AOC the bartender, whose only credible talent is mixing drinks to get people drunk.
