President Trump Insists, No U.S. President Should Be Treated the Way I Was
March 23, 2019 (EIRNS)—In the second part of his interview with Fox News’ Maria Bartiromo, aired March 22, President Trump stated that following his election in 2016, he told his supporters who were demanding prosecution of Hillary Clinton, that it were better to forget that and “look to the future.”
But what followed was a vicious witch hunt and “hoax” which in the end turned up nothing. “They have treated me so viciously, and they have treated me so badly, and we did nothing wrong,” he said. “You look at the others—and all the people you hear about that had nothing to do with Russia, Russia collusion, nothing.” He referenced to the case of his first National Security Advisor, Gen. Michael Flynn, the highly respected Army officer whose life was destroyed by the Mueller investigation, stressing that even the FBI had admitted that Flynn hadn’t lied to them.
Trump said there were “stone cold crimes” committed by Obama officials, concerning the FBI investigation into Hillary Clinton’s email server. “There were so many crimes on the other side,” between deletion of Clinton’s 33,000 emails, former FBI Director Jim Comey’s lies to Congress, former CIA Director John Brennan’s lies to Congress, and former DNI James Clapper’s lies to Congress. “These are just absolute lies,” Trump said, and yet “nobody does anything about it.... We have been treated very, very unfairly.” No President of the United States should “ever be treated the way I was.”
The President concluded by saying there are areas on which he and the Democrats could collaborate, especially on infrastructure. “They want it, I want it,” so why not work together on it, he said.
