In a new Fox News interview with President Trump, Judge Jeanine Pirro gave him the chance to end speculation about whether he colluded with Russia to win the election.
In classic Trump fashion, the POTUS replied by attacking and ridiculing his accusers and political opponents, then boasting about his achievements as President, such as presiding over a booming U.S. economy.
In any other politician’s mouth, these words would be a tactical deflection. But Trump’s answer to Pirro’s question was forceful and direct: “The whole Russia thing. It’s a hoax… Everybody knows there was no collusion whatsoever.”
Trump’s remarks are consistent with his previous strong denials of illegal collusion, as special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation, which began in May 2017, drags on without any new evidence.
