President Donald Trump slammed Democrats for the upcoming Robert Mueller hearing, questioning why Democrats were still focusing on the issue months after the report during an interview with Fox Business on Wednesday.
As IJR Red reported, Democrats in the House have been pushing to move forward with impeachment, saying the Trump had committed impeachable offenses. However, Trump pointed to potential corruption as the reason for the ongoing investigation.
“Well, my reaction is that it never ends,” Trump said about the upcoming hearing pushed by Democrats. “We had no obstruction, we had no collusion. We had a report that was you know considering 18 people that hated Donald Trump, you had Mueller obviously, was — not a Trump fan. Not a Trump person.”
He claimed that the fact that he was not found guilty was impressive due to how the investigation started.
“How these people were picked is by itself incredible, and, yet the — the reporters no collusion, no obstruction which was ruled on by our great attorney general,” said Trump.
Attorney General William Barr’s summary determined that Trump did not commit any obstruction of justice or colluded with Russia. The president claimed that if Democrats would move forward with an impeachment inquiry that it would be an unprecedented reversal.

“It is so illegal it is probably the biggest political scandal in history and they got caught doing it a reversal of sorts, but it is a horrible thing that happened,” said Trump.
He also pointed out the amount of Republican support, using Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) as an example of the shock that Democrats are still moving forward with hearings.
“The Republicans have been totally unified get it fully. Lindsey Graham is, beside himself, he looks at things that happened he can’t even believe what happened he looks at he cannot believe it,” Trump added.
The hearing is set for July 17 as part of a round of testimonies that give insight into the Trump White House.
