President Donald Trump on Thursday sat down for an Oval Office interview with The New York Times — the newspaper the president often insults while clearly craving its approval.
During the interview, Trump made three major denials of wrongdoing and felonious conduct.
Trump denied discussing Wikileaks with Roger Stone
“No, I didn’t,” Trump claimed. “I never did.”
Trump denied being at odds with his intelligence agency chiefs
“They said, ‘Sir, our testimony was totally mischaracterized,’” Trump argued. “I said, ‘What are you talking about?’ And when you read their testimony and you read their statements, it was mischaracterized by the media.”
Trump denied being focus of special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation
He said Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, “told the attorneys that I’m not a subject, I’m not a target.”
