Trump Claims He Won’t Watch Mueller Testimony

Roll Call reports:

President Trump insisted Friday that he won’t watch special counsel Robert Mueller’s testimony before Congress next week. Trump, who was asked directly if he would be watching the marathon testimony, also told reporters that Democrats need to “stop playing games,” and called the recent effort by Rep. Al Green (D-Texas) to force a vote on impeachment a “big waste of time.”

“As far as I’m concerned they already took their impeachment vote, and the impeachment vote was so lopsided, it was a massive victory,” Trump said, referring to a House vote earlier this week that quashed an impeachment resolution introduced by Green. “And you know what, at some point they have to stop playing games, because they’re just playing games. No, I won’t be watching Mueller,” Trump said.
