“We have numerous witnesses to the interview,” Trump said.
“It has been reported that Robert Mueller is saying that he did not apply and interview for the job of FBI Director (and get turned down) the day before he was wrongfully appointed Special Counsel. Hope he doesn’t say that under oath in that we have numerous witnesses to the interview, including the Vice President of the United States!” Trump said in a pair of tweets.
….interview, including the Vice President of the United States!
