Trump Chimes In On The Russia Witch Hunt Following Mueller's Testimony

President Donald Trump took a victory lap following Special Counsel Robert Mueller's hearings on Capitol Hill.

"So we had a very good day today," Trump told reporters. "There is no defense to this ridiculous hoax, this witch hunt that's been going on for a long time, pretty much from the time I came down the escalator with the First Lady."

Although Trump said the investigation was a disgrace to the country, he touted the success his administration has had over the last two years.

"We've done a great job. We've got the strongest stock market. We've got the best unemployment numbers, the most people working in the history of the country right now, almost 160 million. Our military has been rebuilt and getting even stronger," Trump explained. "We've done a great job and we've done it under this terrible, phony cloud, a phony cloud. That's all it was. And they should be ashamed of themselves."

According to Trump, Democrats, such as House Judiciary Chairman Jerry Nadler (D-NY), House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-CA), Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and Sen. Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY), knew the investigation was based on false information.

"Everybody knew it was a hoax, especially the Democrats," Trump said. "I wish we could be a fly on the wall in those rooms where the Democrats would go in and talk before and after meetings and they'd be laughing and smiling and say, 'Can you believe we're getting away with this?' And, again, they didn't get away with it."

Trump then slammed reporters from various news networks for pushing "fake news," specifically over whether or not Mueller could exonerate the president. He said roughly six networks canceled interviews with various Trump administration officials because of what took place during today's hearings.
