Trump Claims He’s ‘Frustrated’ For Not Being ‘Involved’ In Russia Investigation, CNN Can’t Help But Laugh
Donald Trump claimed on Thursday during an appearance on Larry O’Connor’s radio show that he was frustrated that he could not control the multiple investigations into possible collusion or possible obstruction of justice.
“The saddest thing is because I’m president of the United States I’m not supposed to be involved with the Justice Department, the FBI, doing the kinds of things that I would love to be doing and I’m very frustrated by it,” Trump told O’Connor.
A CNN panel couldn’t help but burst into laughter after hearing that Trump wants to be involved in the investigation for which his own former staffers have been indicted.
“Because they’re investigations of him!” former Watergate reporter Carl Bernstein exclaimed. “His family and people around him — it’s a ridiculous statement on its face, but I want to say one thing about this idea of a target of the investigation. Usually you don’t become a target of an investigation and get a so-called target letter from the federal government until you have about to be indicted. Right now it’s no secret that Jared Kushner is the focus of many inquiries by both the intelligence community and the FBI.”

Trump thinks it’s a good idea for him to be involved in an investigation that involves his former and current staffers. The only thing he wants to do is clear his name of the crimes he’s committed.
