Donald Trump says people who sparked Mueller probe did ‘evil things’

March 25, 2019

President Trump on Monday said special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation wound up “100 percent the way it should’ve” and accused people who sparked the probe of doing “evil things.”

Mr. Trump is taking a victory lap after a Justice Department summary of Mr. Mueller’s report found no evidence the Trump campaign colluded with Russian meddlers the 2016 race.

He said the people who put him through the two-year ordeal should be “looked at.”

“It was a false narrative, it was a terrible thing. We can never let this happen to another president again,” he said.

Mr. Trump repeatedly railed against the Mueller probe, calling it a “hoax” and “witch hunt.”

Yet asked Monday whether Mr. Mueller acted honorably, Mr. Trump said, “Yes, he did.”
