Former WH Chief Of Staff Sununu Swipes 'Vindictive' CNN For Being 'Fixated' On Russian Collusion

Well, former New Hampshire governor and White House Chief of Staff John Sununu was on with CNN’s Alisyn Camerota to discuss whether President Trump is under investigation over the firing of former FBI Director James Comey. Sununu was blunt and straightforward: Robert Mueller is investigating the Russian involvement in the 2016 election, the FBI firing is probably included in that investigation, and that the White House has not been notified that the president is being investigated for obstruction of justice; Trump’s lawyer and Chief Counsel for the American Center for Law & Justice Jay Sekulow mentioned that.


Sununu said that those are the only facts on the table. Camerota continued by saying that should the White House be notified of such an investigation, which Sununu responded again by saying that Sekulow noted that no such notification has occurred.

“So, you don’t think that the reports are accurate the president is under investigation by Bob Mueller or obstruction of justice?” she asked.

Sununu said this all came from The Washington Post, quoting its former editor, Ben Bradlee, who said the Post doesn’t print the truth, it prints what they're told. This is what happened concerning the firestorm over whether the president might be under investigation. What bothers Sununu even more is that Mueller is stacking his investigatory team with liberal Clinton donors. At the same time, he mentions that he could be doing this because he knows nothing is there regarding the Russian probe and he needs to add some credibility to sate the bloodlust poisoning Democrats on this issue.

“Maybe Mueller has decided internally that this isn’t going anywhere, and that the only way he can have credibility on a decision saying that there’s nothing there is to have that decision come from a group of lawyers that are so blatantly biased against the president,” he said.

Oh, and it didn’t come without a swipe at the media.


“You guys are fixated on an investigation that’s still has no clearly defined commitment of something wrong in the process,” Sununu said. It got incredibly intense in May, when Sununu forced Camerota to admit that there’s no evidence of Russian collusion, slamming her line of questioning as hypotheticals on hypotheticals as a result.

"If [special counsel Robert] Muller comes out and says that my version is correct and yours isn’t, how much crow are you going to eat?” Sununu said at the time to Camerota.
