President Donald Trump ranted against national security officials, and defended his ex-campaign manager Paul Manafort who is currently on trial and facing a potential life sentence for alleged of money laundering and tax fraud on millions of dollars.
Trump spoke to reporters while walking to Marine One, the White House helicopter:
Mueller has a lot of conflicts also directly. You know that Mr. Mueller is highly conflicted. In fact, Comey is, like, his best friend. I could go into conflict after conflict. Sadly, Mr. Mueller is conflicted. Let him write his report. We did nothing. There’s no collusion…
I think the whole Manafort trial is very sad. When you look at what’s going on there, I think it’s a very sad day for our country. He worked for me for a very short period of time. He happens to be a very good person. I think it’s very sad what they’ve done to Paul Manafort.
