President Donald Trump took a victory lap on Fox News last night, talking via phone to Hannity host Sean Hannity about Robert Mueller’s testimony before Congress. The President’s conclusion: The Democrats “created this phony crime” with their accusations of obstruction of justice.
“I didn’t do it. They create a phony crime,” Trump said. “And then, they say, ‘he obstructed.’ They said there was no collusion, but ‘he obstructed,’ and there has never been anything like this ever in this country.”
He concluded that the investigation, which many believe was initiated by the Democrats funding a phony dossier, but was not addressed by Mueller, was the root of the problem.”This was treason. This was high crimes. This was everything as bad a definition you want to come up with,” Trump said.
