Trump Friend Chris Ruddy: Robert Mueller “Out To Get The President”


Newsmax CEO Christopher Ruddy tells Greta Van Susteren that Robert Mueller's control of the Russia probe is "a threat to the Trump presidency." Ruddy said the investigation has gone on for six months and there is no evidence of a crime. "There's not even actually a serious allegation of a crime committed," Ruddy added. "I think there [are] very serious questions about Director Mueller running the special prosecution of the president," Ruddy said on Tuesday's For The Record. "I think it's a threat to the Trump presidency. I think that the way the investigating is shaping up he's out to get the president." "There is a very good case to be made that he is an illegitimate special counsel," Ruddy said of Mueller. "I spoke to Congressman DeSantis. He's a former Harvard Law grad, JAG. He says the law on the special counsel is very specific: there has to be an underlying criminal probe to trigger the special counsel." "The bottom line is we've gone on now for six months. There's no evidence of a crime. There's not even actually a serious allegation of a crime committed by the president or any of his subordinates. This is all smoke and mirrors," Ruddy said.

Gowdy: No Evidence That Susan Rice Committed A Crime, Or That Obama Wiretapped Trump


Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-SC) told Greta van Susteren that he has not seen any evidence or proof that former National Security Advisor Susan Rice committed a crime or that now-President Trump was wiretapped by former President Obama. RELATED: Scarborough: Trump's Tweet About Obama Wiretapping Trump Tower Was A Lie, Is A Lie, Will Always Be A Lie From Wednesday's For The Record: GRETA VAN SUSTEREN: Have you seen any evidence or do you have any proof or knowledge of any crime committed by former National Security Advisor Susan Rice? REP. TREY GOWDY: No, ma'am, the Congress doesn't investigate crime. She's a witness that has relevant information that would be within our committee's jurisdiction and we're going to want to talk to her. But we don't investigate crime and, Greta, I don't like it when anybody accuses other people of committing crimes, Representative Castro did it this morning and I would have the same reaction to that. When you accuse people of committing crimes, that's serious and it's not Congress' job to investigate that and it's not my job as a member of Congress to level accusations like that. VAN SUSTEREN: Well, you were a very successful prosecutor prior to joining Congress. Put your hat on as a prosecutor for a second, have you seen any evidence if you were a prosecutor to suggest that Susan Rice had committed a crime? GOWDY: Well, I have not but because chiefly I have not seen any of the evidence related to Ambassador Rice. Chairman Nunes and perhaps ranking member Schiff have seen it. I'm coming up over the Easter recess to look at everything I have access to, but I'm not``` convinced that I yet have access to the underlying data that may have informed or instructed that opinion. And unless you have overwhelming proof of a crime and it's your job to make that allegation, I just try to stay out of that realm. I mean, Congress should be investigating lots of things, but we don't investigate potential criminality. Therefore I don't think we ought to be talking about it. ### VAN SUSTEREN: Have you seen any evidence that President Obama wiretapped President Trump? GOWDY: No, ma'am, not in the specific way in which you framed the question, no.
