1:32 am
unfiltered view of government. >> before departing for colorado the president spoke to white commented onrs and are on the mueller's statement from wednesday. china, the ussed and british politics. president trump: we just had turkey released a prisoner that we were trying to released him a little while ago into home released d he'll be from home custody to the united just pretty soon and i erdogan.thank president they released the prisoner, hostage, whatever you want to him. he's in home custody in turkey. he'll be released fairly soon. that's good news. i guess probably you know about that.
1:33 am
other than that, i think things very the economy is doing well.tically beyond anything expectation. unemployment numbers are just ofut the best in the history our country. employment numbers are the best. 160 million e to people working today which is more than we have ever had before. going out to colorado today to give the commencement address air force, which is actually very exciting for me. it's an amazing place. great people so i look forward to doing that. any questions? >> i think it was the same as the report. wasn't much changed. the s, to me, the same as report. and there is no obstruction. obstruction. there is no collusion, no nothing. nothing but a witch-hunt. the media and
1:34 am
the democrats. partners, and if it keeps going, i thought when the report was released, but it goes on. to me, it was the same frankly as the report, and he said the same as the report. think robert l honorably.haved >> i think he's totally conflicted. as you know, he wanted to be the f.b.i. director and i said no. after he left the f.b.i. we had not a nice one. did.asn't happy with what i and i don't blame him but i had to do it because it was the i had a ng to do but business dispute. look at the relationship of him and comey. look, robert never should have chosen because he wanted the f.b.i.'s job and he didn't
1:35 am
next day he was youed as special counsel so tell somebody, i'm sorry, you can't have the job, and then he going to make a ruling on you. it doesn't work that way. e had a business dispute and his relationship with comey was extraordinary. thing i want to say is why peter he investigate trzok, page, mccabe, comey, brennan, and the lies, and clapper and the lies to and all the things hat happened to start this investigation? why didn't comey come clean? why didn't comey come clean and the things that he knows are
1:36 am
facts? mueller investigate comey, his best friend or his very good friend, and there are things?other here's the question. russia.a study of why didn't they investigate the insurance policy. in other words, should hillary got an lose, we've insurance policy. guess what? the we're in right now is insurance policy. > i think he's a total conflicted person. true k mueller is a trumper. he's snab dislikes donald trump. he's somebody that didn't get a requested that he wanted very badly, and then he was appointed. and despite that, and despite 18 trump haters, including people that worked for hillary clinton and some of the on earth, beings they got nothing. it's pretty amazing.
1:37 am
not help me get reelectrocuted. you know who got me elected? elected. russia didn't help me at all. russia, if anything, i think side. the other what you ought to ask is this. do you think the media helped get elected?on she didn't make it but you take a look at collusion between media. clinton and the you take a look at collusion between hillary clinton and russia. to do in the campaign with russia than i did. i had nothing to do. way, that's one other thing, if you look, this russia, russia, russia. they don't talk about russia anymore because it turned out to be a hoax. it was a hoax. and then they say, gee, he fought back. terrible?t he fought back. of course, they fight back. because it was a false accusation, a totally false accusation, and it's a disgrace, and it's a very sad period for
1:38 am
this country, and i think in the end, i will consider what's happening now to be one of my achievements. exposing this corruption. you think they are going to impeach you? how they can because -- although i can't imagine the courts allowing it. gotten into it. i never thought, that would even word.sible to use that to me, it's a dirty word, impeach. disgustingy, filthy, word, and it has nothing to do with me. there think so, because was no crime. it's high crimes and not with orchies, it's high crimes and misdemeanors. there was no high crime and misdemeanor, so how do you impeach me? t came out that there was nothing to do with russia. the whole thing is a scam. giant presidential harassment, and honestly, i hope
1:39 am
