NBC News reports:
Former White House press secretary Sean Spicer said that he does not believe special counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation is a witch hunt, contradicting a claim often repeated by President Donald Trump.
“As of now, I see no evidence that is it,” Spicer said during an exclusive interview on “Today” when asked if Mueller’s probe is a political witch hunt. Spicer, however, said that there has been “no evidence” of collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia.
He also added that he believes Russia meddled in the 2016 election but did not criticize his former boss for his widely condemned comments in which Trump appeared to say he believed Russian President Vladimir Putin’s assertion that his country did not orchestrate a campaign to interfere in the presidential election.
“Do you think that the Mueller probe is a political witch hunt as the president continually says?” –@savannahguthrie
