Trump denies Comey allegations, collusion with Russia

May 19, 2017

President Trump on Thursday strongly denied any collusion between his 2016 campaign and Russia, and rejected allegations that he pressured then-FBI Director James Comey to drop a related investigation into former national security adviser Michael Flynn – saying “the entire thing has been a witch hunt.”

“There was no collusion between, certainly, myself and my campaign – but I can only speak for myself – and the Russians – zero,” he said, adding that questions surrounding his campaign were divisive and pulled focus from other problems facing the nation.

“I think we have a very divided country because of that and many other things,” he said.

But Trump, speaking in the East Room of the White House during a joint press conference alongside the visiting Colombian president, said while he respected the move by Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein to appoint a special counsel in the Russia probe, “the entire thing has been a witch hunt.”

      Why are Repubs and TPs giving our president hard time. He is now whining this is witch-hunt. I told him to avoid talking with Repubs and TPs. They are the trouble makers. If I were Trump I would fire all managers in FBI office. They work for the Executive Branch and therefore work for Trump not for Congress. If Repubs and TPs in Congress want to investigate Russian-gate, that is their option. But they should not use staff in FBI for that work for Trump. In fact I am wondering why Trump has not used his executive pen to stop this hubbub. You remember similar things happened during Bush II. But Bush used his pen to end it all. Trump should do the same – he has that power. After all Russian-gate will not change the outcome of the election.

        LOL…the election is over. We won. I think Trump is smart. Not doing anything about their hunt. Remember, this all started after Killary lot. When you look further, you’ll see she started it.

          Neither Hillary nor Democrats are raising this hell against Trump. It is the Repubs and TPs working behind the scene. Did you hear what Paul Ryan and McConnell yesterday? They want the investigation to go forward. For what? There is nothing to investigate other than Repubs, TPs and others who want to overthrow Trump. These morons wanted Ted Cruz, the foreigner as their candidate. I have asked Trump to fire all FBI managers and the US Attorney General who have appointed Mueller as special prosecutor. This guy will be paid $500 an hour for doing nothing. They have no authority.

            Please. This started with Killary, right after her defeat! I don’t think, by what you write, you even have a clue what’s going on.

      The only collusion was with Obarry. Remember the hot mic? It’s my last election, and I’ll have more leeway after I’m elected.
