President Trump was in an interview with Fox Business host Maria Bartiromo, told her that he would consider appointing a Special Counsel to take over the John Durham investigation into the FBI.
This is from the time period right after he got elected president. This sham investigation continued right through to the midterm elections. At a cost to you and me
It is beginning to look like Durham cannot deliver a report to us or he chooses not to.
Trump needs to pick someone who can put these people in prison.
I know my suggestion will not be popular, but I suggest Chris Christie. He made his reputation prosecuting public officials in New Jersey. He charged 130 public officials and he won all 130 cases.
Partial Transcript of Bartiromo’s interview with Trump:
Maria: “Will you appoint a special counsel to investigate and to continue the investigating into what took place in the 2016 election? You mentioned Jim Comey and Andrew McCabe not facing accountability. Will you appoint a special counsel?”
Trump: “Look, this whole thing is a terrible situation. This should have never been allowed to happen. And, you know, it’s an embarrassment to our country. All over the world, they’re talking about it. And, yes, I would consider a special prosecutor, because, you know, this is not a counsel. It sounds so nice. I went through three years of a special counsel, prosecutor. I call prosecutor, because it’s a much more accurate term.”
“They spent $48 million, Weissmann and all Trump haters. They spent $48 million. That was the Mueller investigation. They went through taxes. They went through everything. For $48 million, you look at everything. And they found no collusion, no nothing. They found nothing, after friends of mine said, you must be the cleanest guy in the world, because nobody could have gone through an examination like that. And then they announced we have no collusion. There was none.”
Trump rattled off his many accomplishments. He said he could have done so much more if it had not been for the hoax Russian collusion investigation by Mueller and his angry little Democrats.
He said he was hoping for a bombshell announcement from Durham just before the election like Barr promised but it never came.
