Ivanka Trump said Wednesday that her “opinion of the [Mueller] investigation hasn’t changed,” and that she has “no cause to be concerned” about what might be in the redacted final report from special counsel Robert Mueller set to be released Thursday.
“My opinion of the investigation hasn’t changed,” Trump said in an interview with the Associated Press released in part Wednesday. “I never expressed concern. I never talked about the investigation except when asked. And I was fortunate to have knowledge of the fact that I knew that there was no collusion. I knew that there was no obstruction. And this was affirmed in the Mueller report, and Attorney General [Bill] Barr’s subsequent summary. So I have no cause to be concerned, I never did.”
Asked if she was worried at all about what would be in the report, Trump said “no.”
“I was asked this question weeks before the report was handed over to the attorney general, and I said I was not worried because I had knowledge of what had transpired during the course of the campaign,” she said. “So I had no reason to be.”
It appeared Trump was referring to an interview on ABC’s “Good Morning America” in February, in which she said she had “zero concerns” about Mueller’s investigation. Barr released his summary of Mueller’s final report 10 weeks later.
