Interview with White House Deputy Communications Director on Robert Mueller's statement
"President Trump says the case is closed Democrats say, just the opposite and speaker of the house Nancy Pelosi who has warned Democrats against pursuing impeachment said at an appearance in San Francisco yesterday that, quote, nothing is off the table. All this comes after special counsel, Robert Muller made his first public comments about the Russia investigation Muller repeated his central conclusion that Russia interfered in the twenty sixteen election in order to hurt Hillary Clinton. He also said out loud that the decision not to charge the president was not an exoneration as the White House claims if we had had confidence that the president clearly did not commit a crime. We would have said, so. We did not, however make a determination as to whether the president did commit a crime. Adam Kennedy, is deputy director of communications to President Trump, and he joins us now on the line. Thank you so much for being with us this morning. Thank you so much for Robert Mueller refused to clear the president's name in his remarks. Why does the president say case closed, because when wherever Muller refused to make a determination based evidence that forced the attorney general deputy attorney general step it make a decision and they did so without using the L C or any constitutional considerations to do it. And what they found was based on the evidence Muller gathered. There was no grants obstruction. So it's clear that this that this case is closed exonerated at Muller truly to the president had obstructed, he could've used his many opportunities to say while prevented from doing, so I would recommend to the SCO forward, but he has also as, as you just alluded to Robert. Moeller made it clear that a big reason that he was not able to articulate whether or not the president obstructed Justice is because the department of Justice rules prevent that from happening. Thereby nodding his head to the fact that this is a political decision at this point that whether or not to, to hold the president to account is something that should happen in congress. I actually just agree. I don't think it is political, I think when the special counsel doesn't make it a termination under the rules, which Muller knows very well. It then goes to deter general deputy attorney general and they did make a decision. They made it decision based on the evidence smaller gathered and without considering the constitutional questions or department of Justice regulation. I think it's very clear where the situation rest with no obstruction Okaloosa. We also do need to clarify the record, though. Neither the attorney general nor- Robert Mueller ever used the words, the president has been exonerated, typically what you charge somebody that's considered an exoneration Robert Muller could have made a recommendation could have said congress should take this up. It's not a he said, both things, but he chose not to he left it to the general, the general conclusion, it is actually is actually a separate issue. It's not the same thing to not bring charges not the same thing as being exonerated. But we're going to have to leave that to the side. I wanna ask as the president read the mole report. You know, I'm not gonna get into how much the president how much the presence time spent on this. He certainly followed the case, the investigation, and I think he all along with conclude, they wanna play a bit of rubber Muller in his remarks yesterday. Let's listen to this Russian intelligence officers who are part of the Russian military launched a concerted attack on our political system. The indictment alleges that they use affiliated cyber techniques to hack into computers and networks used by the Clinton campaign. They stole private information, and then release that information through fake online and identities. And through the organization, Wicky leaks. The releases were designed and timed to interfere with our election and to damage a presidential candidate does the president now except that conclusion, the president said all along that people have attempted to interfere with our elections. But that it happened on his behalf. Fortunate that the previous what hasn't happened on his behalf. Robert more devices. To hurt Hillary to his benefit. But let's be clear to say on his behalf is to suggest that he this to happen. It was the previous administrations allowed this to happen. The president taken serious considerable steps to make sure it doesn't happen in the future. So no, I wouldn't say it happened on his behalf. We should also say there is no evidence of this point as to whether or not the previous administration opened any doors to this at all. Can you say explicitly whether or not the Trump campaign will accept or even solicit help from Russians in the twenty twenty campaign? I worked for the president. I'd states that don't work for the campaign where you can say, is that the president can serious steps including closing facilities, including, including two checking Russian personnel from this country sanctions to make sure that this doesn't happen again. The future where strengthening our election system. We're working with states and local authorities to make sure that this travesty previous ministration allow happened again. There is no. Evidence to that effect. Adam Kennedy, we've been stop it from happening, that's for another conversation. But at this point there is no evidence of the previous administration having any responsibility for that. Adam Kennedy White House deputy communications director. Thank you for your

"Right right now. Not just says it or recites the National Enquirer or both. Right? You know, at the time in two thousand eight, it was Bill Clinton doing a lot of it which turned out to be not a good move because when he would do it, it wouldn't go over well. But that's what happened a lot of the time in two thousand eight. I think Harry Reid tried to take that role in two thousand sixteen. He released some letters, talked about what he knew or at least alluded, didn't get into. It doesn't have to be, doesn't have to be a press. Allah can be a proxy someone else in government. Yeah, yeah. And I think here it was a big supporter of Hillary Clinton rest. So I think he he felt like that information should be out maybe because he supported Hillary Clinton or maybe just thought people should know about it, but it didn't really, you know, if you look at the the, the mount of coverage of Hillary's emails versus the stuff Harry Reid is talking about in Russia. It was a blip. What do you? How do you think the role and it was not your job, but how do you get the role of a research. Director is going to be different for the next campaign given sort of the world Rin would Twitter and blogs and truth flesh, non truth. Do you think you are going to spend? Do you think someone like you will spend as much time, you know, figuring out if someone actually went to the college, they said they said they went to if we're in a world where where Donald Trump has sort of removed shame from the vocabulary, at least for for himself as a as a candidate. I think it's much less important now Trump, to be honest, because you think about somebody like Barack Obama very difficult from a research perspective, you're trying to kind of Pierce that armor a little bit and he had developed over his career. You know, he'd written a book about him, did some drugs or whatever. But for the most part, he had this incredible life story was very careful about what he did what he said. It took a lot of work to find something that could possibly be damaging to him. Donald Trump, tweets, it out. I mean, he, what could you possibly find about Donald Trump? I mean, maybe rubber Muller will find something, but it seems very difficult as a researcher on a campaign is doing something right, because you think that the that is specific to Trump pretty think that we've now changed the sort of tenor and sort of what concepts is mudslinging or embarrassing fact to arise. It'll be. See what happens post Trump. If if this is created some sort of new standard or if we've gone back, I think a lot of democratic candidates still today operate kind of under the old rules you, you saw even something and I, I actually thought this was the right thing for him to do, but even someone like Al Franken who was accused and admitted to some inappropriate conduct, but compared to what Trump's accused to it was not much and he resigned. So I do think that there is kind of a parallel universe today where these rules do seem to apply. So I think it's an open question of is now the standard just I'm a bit better than Trump and if so, no problem or or do we go back to where we kind of hold it used to be that we thought we wanna hold politicians to a higher standard than. In a typical person? Yeah, I is hard to imagine that that barn doors just not going to stay open. Possibly, but I do think that Trump is really effective in creating his own rules as own reality. And that's really where his political skill sly. And I don't know if other people are really capable of doing that giving. Can you imagine another president who his lawyer stood up in a courtroom a few days ago and said, I committed to felonies with Donald Trump, right? He said explicitly and the entire Republican party just fell right into to defend himself. So yeah, I knew about the payments that I made to the women to hush, like it's crazy. But here we are, it's it's almost a magical, a magical hold, so I, it could happen, but I don't know. I mean, I think I'm amazed by what he's able to do. Let's all ponder that for a second one. We take a break back in.
