During an interview with Fox News’ Jeanine Pirro on Saturday, President Donald Trump spoke out against the lack of evidence for Russian collusion.
A new report from the New York Times claimed Trump is being investigated for working with Russia, which would be a potential national security threat if it is true. However, some are saying the report just revealed how little evidence the investigators had.

“I think it’s the most insulting thing I have ever been asked,” Trump said. “I think it’s the most insulting article I’ve ever had written and if you read the [New York Times] article you see that they found absolutely nothing.”
He was also accused by The Washington Post of withholding information about talks with Russian President Vladimir Putin. But Trump pointed out that having discussions with world leaders is something that is normal and should not be scrutinized.
“I would. I don’t care,” said Trump about revealing details of the discussion. “I had a conversation like every president does. You sit with the president of various countries. I do it with all countries.”
However, he reiterated his claims that there was no foul play with Russia.
“Here’s the bottom line,” the president said. “There was no collusion. There was no obstruction. There was no anything. … It’s a witch hunt.”
