Trump tells NYT he thinks Mueller will 'be fair'

FBI Russia probe helped by Australian diplomat tip-off

"Here-to-fore we did, but it's being eroded and it's being eroded by facts that are being exposed and I don't think it's over", warned the IN congressman.

Mueller has charged four Trump associates in his investigation.

"The reasons given for Starr's reset are wholly specious: There is ostensibly a "drumbeat of criticism" aimed at special counsel Robert S. Mueller III which 'has become deafening, ' including 'cascading revelations of anti-Trump bias, '" Kendall wrote. "But I think he's going to be fair", Trump told the New York Times in an interview at his golf club in West Palm Beach, Florida. During the Thursday evening interview, Trump said that he believes Mueller will treat him fairly (contradicting many conservatives), but also said that the investigation "makes the country look very bad, and it puts the country in a very bad position".

Following news of Flynn's indictment, Trump's impeachment odds skyrocketed, and approached a 50-50 chance that the House of Representatives would vote to impeach the president before the end of his first term.

President Trump's lawyers predict the investigation will wrap up soon. While he did not answer the Times' question if he thought one of former president Barack Obama's attorney generals, Eric Holder, was more loyal than Sessions, he said Holder "totally protected" Obama, something he has "great respect for". When Times reporter Michael Schmidt asked him to explain his North Korea tweet, Trump responded, "Which one?"

After the president earlier accused China of secretly shipping oil to North Korea, he responded to questions surrounding the report.

"You know, I'm not sure I've seen a lot that the American people aren't already aware of", Himes replied.

Not stopping there, Donald Trump said that the press "basically has to let me win". "Totally protected him", Mr. Trump said. "Without me, The New York Times will indeed be, not the failing New York Times, but the failed New York Times", Trump said. "But I think it's all worked out because frankly there is absolutely no collusion, that's been proven by every Democrat is saying it".
