Posted on 12/28/2017 6:22:23 PM PST by SSS Two
WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. President Trump said Thursday that he believes Robert S. Mueller III, the special counsel in the Russia investigation, will treat him fairly, contradicting some members of his party who have waged a weekslong campaign to try to discredit Mr. Mueller and the continuing inquiry.
During an impromptu 30-minute interview with The New York Times at his golf club in West Palm Beach, the president did not demand an end to the Russia investigations swirling around his administration, but insisted 16 times that there has been no collusion discovered by the inquiry.
It makes the country look very bad, and it puts the country in a very bad position, Mr. Trump said of the investigation. So the sooner its worked out, the better it is for the country.
Asked whether he would order the Justice Department to reopen the investigation into Hillary Clintons emails, Mr. Trump appeared to remain focused on the Russia investigation.
I have absolute right to do what I want to do with the Justice Department, he said, echoing claims by his supporters that as president he has the power to open or end an investigation. But for purposes of hopefully thinking Im going to be treated fairly, Ive stayed uninvolved with this particular matter.

It makes the country look very bad”
I sure does. I’ll bet our enemies are laughing at those stupid Americans.
Our enemies (foreign and domestic) are rooting for the “insurance policy” silent coup.
Forget what foreigners think, Americans are appalled that both parties allowed an ineligible usurper to get control of the US government and turn it against US!
The only collusion that has been discovered was between the Russians and the Soros-supported Democrats. This puts our resident Putinistas in a tough spot. Friggin phonies that they are.
They won’t be laughing very long.
They will be trying to explain to their people why 2nd amendment rights are bad when it worked so well here.
Isn’t that exactly how Democrats want America to look? It was pretty much the goal of every Obama foreign visit.
One day Hillary will catch up to your crying about Putin. Until then, you are going have to live with being tied with MSNBC.
‘SCHMIDT: Whats your expectation on Mueller? When do you
TRUMP: I have no expectation. I can only tell you that there is absolutely no collusion. Everybody knows it. And you know who knows it better than anybody? The Democrats. They walk around blinking at each other.’
bwahaha!! BLINKING at each other!!
aha, he hints at the AWANS!!
.....I actually think that its turning out I actually think its turning to the Democrats because there was collusion on behalf of the Democrats. There was collusion with the Russians and the Democrats. A lot of collusion.
TRUMP: Starting with the dossier. But going into so many other elements. And Podestas firm.
SCHMIDT: Thats true. But in terms of, the lawyers said it would be done by, your guys said, it would be done by Thanksgiving, it would be done by Christmas. What are they telling you now? What are they telling you?
TRUMP: [Inaudible.] There was tremendous collusion on behalf of the Russians and the Democrats. There was no collusion with respect to my campaign. I think Ill be treated fairly. Timingwise, I cant tell you. I just dont know. But I think well be treated fairly.
SCHMIDT: But youre not worked up about the timing?
TRUMP: Well, I think its bad for the country. The only thing that bothers me about timing, I think its a very bad thing for the country. Because it makes the country look bad, it makes the country look very bad, and it puts the country in a very bad position. So the sooner its worked out, the better it is for the country.
But there is tremendous collusion with the Russians and with the Democratic Party. Including all of the stuff with the and then whatever happened to the Pakistani guy, that had the two, you know, whatever happened to this Pakistani guy who worked with the D.N.C.?
Whatever happened to them? With the two servers that they broke up into a million pieces? Whatever happened to him? That was a big story. Now all of sudden [inaudible]. So I know The New York Times is going to because those are real stories. Whatever happened to the Hillary Clinton deleted 33,000 emails after she got [inaudible] which you guys wrote, but then you dropped was that you?...
It seems a possibility to me that this conspiracy vis-a-vis Trump and Russia gate is the best offense for the defense of Trump prosecuting the Clintons. Some high level players have been taken out. Some (Sessions for one) appear to be just fine in burdening the President).
If Democrats can work some sort of political or personal advantage from a course of action, they don’t care if it damages America. They’re bad, unpatriotic Americans, most of them.
He should remember... the democrats didn’t slow down to attack him any which way they can after the election.
as such... he should go on the offense and start investigating 0bama and hillary and their relationships with AQ, ISIS, and Russia
if the investigations find anyone working in support of AQ and ISIS while we have people in harms way being attacked by AQ and ISIS... should be charged with TREASON
The white left would gleefully take down their country if it meant getting even with Donald Trump.
In the same interview, he said he believed Mueller will treat him fairly. Undermines Hannity, Limbaugh Levin and the rest of the jaw bone media as well as those in congress who have been questioning Mueller’s tactics.
Not so covert messaging there....
Hillary crying about Putin? She and Obama deliberately made your KGB hero stronger with their disasterrous missile defense and nuke deals, including the insane Obama=Putin Iran nuke deal that Putin loved so much. This plus their handing over to (your buddies) the Russians 20% of our (America’s) uranium production. Not to forget the Obama Admin’s near dismantling of OUR military.
So, despite your and your fellow Putin butt kissers’ BS, the reality is the Russians couldn’t have asked for a more accomdating White House than the George Soros-supported Obama-Hillary one. Because the Trump admin could not have made it any clearer, even prior to the election, that they regarded Putin as a dangerous for not to be trusted. I’ve provided their statements regarding Putin many times on this forum. Just consider yourself fortunate that this isn’t my website. Because your demented butts would have been kicked off of here a long time ago.
I’ve archived team Trump’s rightfully untrusting views on KGB Putin on my FR Home page. That plus much more regarding their evil actions and alliances.
