WASHINGTON – US President Donald Trump said on Wednesday that the comprehensive investigation, led by former FBI Director Robert Mueller as a newly appointed special counsel, will prove that there were no links between his election campaign and Russia.
“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 a statement released by the White House.
“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,” Trump added.
The Justice Department on Wednesday appointed Mueller as a special counsel to oversee the FBI’s investigation into Russia’s interference in the 2016 election, including its alleged ties to Trump’s presidential campaign.
