Bringing America Together

If you were completely innocent of any charges, and the media really was unfairly picking on you, then wouldn't you welcome an independent prosecutor to look into the charges? Even if it irritated you, the fact that a highly respected former FBI director with bi-partisan support who was handpicked by your handpicked deputy attorney general, offered you the chance to graciously help put this whole thing to rest and begin healing this divided country.

A quote like: "I welcome the inquiry. We need to get to the bottom of Russia's involvement in our election so that we can prevent it from happening again in the future. I'm confident that the inquiry will also put to rest the rumors of collusion with my campaign. We are prepared to co-operate and provide investigators with any information they seek."

That's what he needed to say.

His staff actually got him to say something close to that. This is the original statement...

“As I have stated many times, a thorough investigation will confirm what we already know — there was no collusion between my campaign and any foreign entity,” Trump said in the statement. “I look forward to this matter concluding quickly. In the meantime, I will never stop fighting for the people and the issues that matter most to the future of our country.”

This is what he said this morning with no staff around...

This man can't be president.
