Counselor to the President Kellyanne Conway claimed on Monday that President Donald Trump has “zero concerns” about Russia probe Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s upcoming testimony, after her boss warned it “will be bad” for Mueller to speak.
“The President has zero concerns,” Conway told reporters on the White House driveway. “Except that the taxpayers are on the hook again for this fantasy that never came true for the Democrats who promised all of you, and sometimes with your help, that there would be a criminal conspiracy and collusion, the Russians helped the Trump campaign, we welcomed help and it turned an election.”
Conway continued: “Well you know that’s not true. Director Mueller himself has said that his report is his testimony. That ought to be respected and that ought to be accepted.”
