A new poll reveals 48 percent of American voters believe it's "very or somewhat likely" President Donald Trump will be cleared in the investigation into alleged collusion with Russian Federation during the 2016 presidential campaign.
Shortly after CNN published a bombshell report revealing that top U.S. intelligence figures presented Trump with claims of Russian efforts to compromise him, Trump tweeted on January 10, 2017: "FAKE NEWS - A TOTAL POLITICAL WITCH HUNT!".
It's unclear whether Trump would get away with refusing to comply with a subpoena from Mueller.
Trump closed by suggesting that he may not in fact be open talking to Mueller after all. "They make up a crime, and the crime doesn't exist, and then they say obstruction". And there is no collusion. "That is perhaps ridiculous, and a lot of people looked upon that as being a very serious breach". But don't expect to stop hearing prominent liberal journalists chanting to each other over and over, "Russia, Collusion, Trump".
"There was no collusion, everybody including the Dems knows there was no collusion, & yet on and on it goes", Trump wrote on Twitter.
Trump expects medical exam to go well Friday
Trump takes a statin to control cholesterol, baby aspirin to prevent heart attacks and Propecia to treat male-pattern baldness. Bush administration selected him to be a White House physician under Air Force Brigadier General Richard Tubb.
Trump described the probe as a cloud over his administration. And it has hurt our government.
Trump announced past year his intention to pull the USA out of the climate pact and the president has repeatedly expressed skepticism about climate change science, calling global warming a "hoax" created by the Chinese to damage American industry. So it was brought up for that reason.
"It has been determined that there is no collusion by virtually everybody".
But when a reporter asked him Wednesday whether he would consent to an interview with Mueller, Trump replied, "We'll see what happens". "The green economy is an area where we see tremendous economic and business opportunities in the future". He proceeded to say the words "no collusion" several times more, bringing up Hillary Clinton, and insisting that the Russian Federation investigation is "a Democratic hoax" created to deflect their 2016 White House loss.
Trump appears to be laying the groundwork to refuse the interview based on some sort of dubious legal argument, as well as his own false sense of indignation at even being asked.
Trump himself has previously indicated he would be willing to talk to Mueller.
