Yesterday President Trump gave an interview to Jeff Glor of CBS News. In a portion where he invoked his standard “no collusion” mantra, there was something more (emphasis added).
TRUMP: There’s no collusion. I didn’t deal with Russia. I had nothing to do with Russia with respect to my race. I won that race rather easily. And I can tell you that I think, frankly, 2020, I think it’s going to be even better than we did in ’16.
GLOR: But would you, are you more likely to sit an interview now?
TRUMP: My lawyers are working on that. I’ve always wanted to do an interview, because look, there’s been no collusion. There’s been no talk of Russia. There’s been no phone call. There’s been nothing. And it’s I call it a witch hunt. That’s exactly what it is. It’s a it’s a vicious witch hunt. And you know what? It’s very bad for our country. Very, very bad for our country.
