First comments from President Trump on the Cohen raid (from the pool report) …

Quick comments: “it’s a disgraceful situation.”

“I have this witch hunt constantly going on.”

“It’s an attack on on our country…what we all stand for.”

Also called the special counsel “the most conflicted group of people I have ever seen.”

Trump went on to criticize AG Jeff Sessions for recusing himself and repeatedly said no one “is looking at the other side,” referring to Clinton’s 30k emails and “many many” other things.

Late Update: The video of these comments are considerably more aggressive than the quotes would suggest.
