Trump to Mediaite’s Larry O’Connor: ‘Very Frustrated’ I Can’t Go After Hillary Clinton

Thursday afternoon at the White House, President Donald Trump sat down for a one-on-one with Mediaite‘s Larry O’Connor.

In an interview which aired on WMAL Radio in Washington, O’Connor asked the President “What’s stopping the Justice Department” from investigating Hillary Clinton over her involvement in the Uranium One deal — which has been heavily pushed by conservative media.

“But you know the saddest thing, because I’m the President of the United States I am not supposed to be involved with the Justice Department,” Trump said. “I am not supposed to be involved with the FBI. I’m not supposed to be doing the kinds of things that I would love to be doing. And I’m very frustrated by it.”

Trump continued:

“Why aren’t they going after Hillary Clinton with her emails and with the dossier, and the kind of money?” Trump said. “I don’t know, is it possible that they paid $12.4 million for the dossier? And how was it – which is total phony, fake – and how was it used?”
