United States President Donald Trump has on Monday said his enemies who did “very evil things” to him and “treasonous things” against the country will be “looked at” after special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation found no Russian interference into 2016 US presidential election campaign.
According to BBC news reports, while speaking in the Oval office, Trump said no other president has to be probed over a “false narrative”.
Trump’s comment appeared after attorney general William Barr released a summary over Mueller’s probe into Trump’s election campaign.
Barr ruled that there was no evidence found requiring prosecution over the obstruction matter.
On Monday, when Trump was hosting Israel Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in the White House, a reporter asked him about the outcome of Mueller’s report.
Trump replied, “There’s a lot of people out there that have done some very, very evil things, very bad things,” adding, “I would say treasonous things, against our country.”
He said, “And hopefully people that have done such harm to our country, we’ve gone through a period of really bad things happening.”
Trump said those people “will certainly be looked at”, adding, “I’ve been looking at them for a long time.”
He added saying, “And I’m saying, ‘why haven’t they been looked at?’ They lied to Congress – many of them, you know who they are – they’ve’ done so many evil things.” However, he didn’t name any alleged culprits.
He added: “It was a false narrative, it was a terrible thing, we can never let this happen to another president again, I can tell you that. I say it very strongly.”
In a tweet, Senator McConnell wrote: “No collusion. No conspiracy. No obstruction. It’s good news that we can conclusively set aside the notion that the president and his team had somehow participated in Russia’s interference in our electoral process.”
