Christie says Mueller is being 'responsible' in Russian Federation inquiry

Tuesday, 08 Aug, 2017

It could take months, even years, to finish, much less come to a conclusion about whether Trump colluded with Russian Federation to win the White House.

"The entire Russian Federation investigation is a hypothetical", Conway said Sunday on ABC's "This Week". "People just can't get over that election". "It's corrosive to our body politic".

"The entire Russian Federation investigation is a hypothetical", she declared.

New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, a supporter and friend of President Donald Trump, said Sunday that Donald Trump Jr.'s meeting with a Russian lawyer in June of a year ago was a bad idea, but everyone would be best served to wait for special counsel Robert Mueller's findings on the matter.

Buried deep in a Freedom of Information Act document release last week to a conservative group were a series of emails that pertained to how the Justice Department handled questions from reporters about a 2016 airport tarmac meeting between former President Bill Clinton and then-Attorney General Loretta Lynch - the emails included a recipient named, "Elizabeth Carlisle", which reports now indicate was the email alias for Lynch. "Jim Comey told him that as Federal Bureau of Investigation director three times and he had - he assured that under oath".

"Well, let's talk about telling the truth", she said. If you like your plan you can keep it, if you like your doctor you can keep your doctor.

"Benghazi happened because of a video", Conway said. "The NYPD is the most expert police force on earth in terms of handling visits by an American president", de Blasio told reporters during a press conference in which he pushed a millionaire's tax to improve the subways.

STEPHANOPOULOUS: Kellyanne, you're simply changing the subject here.

"I can only imagine how the country would react if Robert Mueller were fired just because the president [didn't] like the investigation", he continued. "The president is not discussing firing Bob Mueller", Ms. Conway said.

"I trust that he'll be very careful to try not to go on a fishing expedition", Christie said of Mueller.

But Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.), the top Democrat on the House Intel Committee, said Mueller's grand jury is a "significant development". A Quinnipiac poll, meanwhile, found that 74 percent of New York City residents disapprove of the job that Trump is doing, and 79 percent do not want the president to spend more time in the city. "It's about an excuse for the Democrats who have no vision". If there really was nothing to see here, as Trump claims, Mueller's team won't need to keep digging.

Conway seems stuck in a "Groundhog Day" loop while the world has moved on.
