In his “freewheeling” interview with the right wing sludge generator, the Daily Caller, Trump reminds us that if he keeps talking, he’ll say something that reveals what he’s actually thinking. In this case, that moment slipped by almost unnoticed.
Trump on Wednesday indicated during an interview that he tapped former US attorney Matthew Whitaker to replace then Attorney General Jeff Sessions in order to rein in the Russia investigation
POTUS: I knew him only as he pertained, you know, as he was with Jeff Sessions. And, you know, look, as far as I’m concerned this is an investigation that should have never been brought. It should have never been had.
It’s something that should have never been brought. It’s an illegal investigation. And you know, it’s very interesting because when you talk about not Senate confirmed, well, Mueller’s not Senate confirmed.
THE DAILY CALLER: Right.
