President Trump says that “Bruce Ohr is a disgrace” and that he will be taking away his security clearance shortly.
Prior to boarding Marine One, the president Trump took questions from reporters for five minutes. Asked if he is trying to stifle free speech and silence his critics by taking away their security clearances, Donald Trump responded:” There’s no silence. If anything, I’m giving them a bigger voice.”
The president went on to share his views on John Brennan. “I’ve never respected him”, he said,”I’ve never had a lot of respect. And Senator Burr said it best: If you knew anything, why didn’t you report it when you were before all of these committees, including their committee?
Asked about Bruce Ohr, Trump openly expressed his dislike for him and called him a “disgrace”.
“I think Bruce Ohr is a disgrace. I suspect I’ll be taking it away very quickly. I think that Bruce Ohr is a disgrace, with his wife, Nellie. For him to be in the Justice Department, and to be doing what he did, that is a disgrace. That is disqualifying for Mueller. And Mr. Mueller has a lot of conflicts, also, directly yourself. So you know that.
Mr. Mueller is highly conflicted. In fact, Comey is like his best friend. I could go into conflict after conflict. But sadly, Mr. Mueller is conflicted. But let him write his report. We did nothing. There’s no collusion.
But if he was doing an honest report, he’d write it on the other side. Because when you look at criminality, and you look at problems, take a look at what they did, including colluding with the Russians — the other side.”
Once again, president Trump said that Russian collusion is “a rigged witch hunt.”
