Trump: I’m Told I’m Not A Target Of Mueller’s Probe

The Hill reports:

In an interview with The New York Times, Trump says that deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein has made clear to him that he is “not a subject” of Robert Mueller’s investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election. “He told the attorneys that I’m not a subject, I’m not a target,” Trump said in the interview.

“Rod told me I’m not a target of the investigation,” he added later on, while suggesting he had not spoken with Rosenstein directly. “The lawyers ask him. They say, ‘He’s not a target of the investigation.’”

“No, I didn’t. I never did,” Trump responded, when asked if he directed Roger Stone to talk to Wikileaks founder Julian Assange. “Never did.”
