Donald Trump Makes Case for an Investigation of the Investigation
April 2, 2019 (EIRNS)—Speaking with the press in the Oval Office before his expanded cabinet meeting with NATO General Secretary Jens Stoltenberg today, President Donald Trump used the opportunity to lambaste the Democrats who continue to beat a dead horse on the “Russiagate” investigation. We could release 800 pages of a 400-page report, and that would not satisfy the Democrats, he said!
President Trump scored Rep. Jerrold Nadler’s thorough hypocrisy in calling for releasing the full report, when that same Nadler, as one reporter pointed out, had opposed the release of the infamous Kenneth Starr report on President Bill Clinton.
The President then exhorted for reporters to begin an investigation about how this whole “Russiagate” began.
“I hope they now go and take a look at the origins, the origins of the investigation, the beginning of that investigation, really look at the origins of that investigation: where it started, how it started, who started it, whether it’s McCain or Comey or a lot of them, where does it go? How high up in the White House did it go? You will all get Pulitzer Prizes. You should have looked at it a long time ago. And that’s the only thing that’s disappointing to me about the Mueller report. The Mueller report I wish covered the origins of how it started, the beginnings of the investigations, how it started. It didn’t cover that and for some reason, none of that was discussed.”
