Former President Donald Trump on Thursday took a victory lap a day after Democrats’ released a transcript of the closed-door testimony of former White House Counsel Don McGahn, which revealed little new information about Mr. Trump’s actions during the Mueller collusion probe.
“I fought the made-up Hoax strongly and effectively and I won,” the former president said.
Democrats say Mr. Trump’s actions amount to obstruction, though former Attorney General William P. Barr cleared the former president of obstructing the Mueller probe.
“Then they fabricated out of thin air, the fake allegation that I obstructed justice, and I won that too,” Mr. Trump said in his statement. “Think of it, how can you obstruct justice when you were fighting a false and illegally submitted narrative?”
But he also said that Mr. Trump “fully cooperated” with the Mueller probe and that he did not witness any collusion between the president and Russia, which was the basis for the special counsel probe.
