In Bonkers NY Times Interview, Trump Says 'No Collusion' 16 Times

"But for purposes of hopefully thinking I'm going to be treated fairly, I've stayed uninvolved with this particular matter", he added.

Before the investigation began, the USA intelligence community found that Russian Federation did attempt to influence the election in Trump's favor.

Florida GOP Rep. Francis Rooney said Tuesday in an interview with MSNBC that he wants leaders of the Department of Justice and the Federal Bureau of Investigation to "purge" officials that he says are politically biased against President Trump.

In a meandering and quite frankly freaky interview with The New York Times at Mar-a-Lago Resort in West Palm Peach, President Trump drops the words "no collusion" 16 times during a 30 minute time span.

Outside of Congress, the Department of Justice's special counsel Robert Mueller has already netted a few guilty pleas, and his investigation is likely to pick up steam in 2018 - despite what President Donald Trump's lawyers are saying.

"I actually think it's turning to the Democrats because there was collusion on behalf of the Democrats", Trump said, according to a transcript of the interview. Trump randomly bringing up Paul Manafort's brief tenure as Associate Director of the Presidential Personnel Office for Ronald Reagan, sure?

"I think that he's going to be fair". "Oil is going into North Korea".

After expressing regret that Jeff Sessions excused himself from the Russian Federation investigation, he surprisingly expressed respect for former Attorney General Eric Holder. The president made the argument that the media, and specifically, the Times, have a vested interest in seeing him continue as president. "And eventually, probably six months before the election, they'll be loving me because they're saying, 'Please, please, don't lose Donald Trump.' O.K". "You've got an open partisan being hired in all of these key little slots that are partisan and it challenges the credibility of some of the FBI", said Rep. Brat who found details concerning potential FBI use of the unverified Steele Dossier and anti-Trump texts messages sent by FBI agent Peter Strzok to be major breeches in FBI standards.
