Maria Bartiromo asked Trump about the special counsel amid recent indications that Mueller is about to submit his findings to Attorney General William Barr. This prompted Trump to boast about his election victory before he shifted gears to rail against former AG Jeff Sessions and Deputy AG Rod Rosenstein.
“A deputy who didn’t get any votes appoints a man who didn’t get any votes, he’s gonna write a report on me,” Trump fumed. “Because we have an attorney general who nobody can believe, he didn’t tell me, but he rescued himself.”
Trump continued by saying “people will not stand for it” if Mueller’s report makes a determination on his presidency before slamming the Russia “hoax” some more.
