Trump: Special counsel appointment “hurts our country”

“President Donald Trump warned that the special counsel investigation into alleged links between his 2016 campaign and Russia’s election hacking ‘hurts our country’ after earlier branding the probe the ‘single greatest witch hunt’ in political history. ‘I believe it hurts our country terribly, because it shows we’re a divided, mixed-up, not-unified country,’ Trump said at a luncheon with a group of television news anchors. … The President’s adoption of the role of a victim has been a potent political weapon before and he has frequently used it to position himself against the Washington establishment, including the media which he uses as a foil in the absence of an easily identifiable political enemy, like Hillary Clinton.” (05/18/17)
