President Trump went on a tear against the special counsel’s office after being asked about the FBI raid on Michael Cohen‘s office earlier today.
He said he “just heard that they broke into the office of one of my personal attorneys,” praising Cohen as a “good man” and saying this is a “disgraceful situation.”
The President said he’s been cooperating with the special counsel and he wants to tackle serious issues but there’s this “witch hunt constantly going on for over 12 months now”
“It’s a disgrace,” Trump continued. “It’s frankly a real disgrace. It’s an attack on our country, in a true sense. It’s an attack on what we all stand for… A whole new level of unfairness.”
He reiterated “no collusion,” attacked Mueller’s team as biased, and said “they’re not looking at the other side.”
