Trump Gets Angry, Attacks Mueller, Admits Russians Helped Him Win Presidency


President Trump had some choice words following Special Counsel’s Robert Mueller resignation, and some of those words may have admitted guilt.

On Thursday, Trump committed a possible Freudian slip, tweeting that he himself had “nothing to do with Russia helping me to get elected.”

Speaking to reporters shortly after, he rephrased that a message a little more carefully, saying “Russia did not help me get elected. I helped me get elected. Russia had nothing to do with it at all.”

Trump also took the opportunity to attack Mueller, calling him a “true never-Trumper”.

Response to Mueller’s Own Attack

The affront comes a day after Mueller commented about his investigation into Russian interference the 2016 election. The former special counsel said Wednesday that if his investigative team “had confidence that [Trump] clearly did not commit a crime, we would have said so,” and that “while this report does not conclude that the President committed a crime, it also does not exonerate him.”

Many, especially Democrats, have taken Mueller’s comment as code that the report’s findings provide grounds for impeachment. An active president cannot be charged with a federal crime while serving in office, making impeachment the only path for removing Trump from the White House.

Trump retains that Mueller and his report were biased due to a “business dispute” the two had many years ago, calling him “conflicted”.
