U.S. President Donald Trump believes his life would be different if it were not the investigation of former special prosecutor Robert Mueller. He stated this on September 12.
“Muller’s scam should not have come to the first place, there is no justification for this. It was an illegal witch hunt, it had to pay a high price. How different my life would have been if this fraud against America had never happened,” he wrote on Twitter.
According to him, Mueller’s team illegally “cleaned” the data from his cell phones right before starting an investigation against them. “The same stupid reason is ‘accidental’, just as the fraudster Hillary (Clinton – Ed.) broke her phones to delete e-mail messages,” Trump said.
In early August, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo announced a $10 million reward for information about those interfering in the U.S. elections, according to the State Department’s Justice Awards program.
“When it comes to Russia or other malicious actors, the program offers a reward of up to $10 million for identifying or locating any person who is ordered or controlled by foreign governments to interfere in U.S. elections,” Pompeo said.
The U.S. secretary of state has threatened to sanction Russia if it “interferes with democratic processes” in the United States.
The investigation into “Russian interference” in the elections began after Donald Trump won the November 2016 elections. The U.S. leader has repeatedly rejected suspicions of any undue contact with Russian officials during the election campaign. Russia also refuted findings about attempts to influence the U.S. elections.
In late March last year, U.S. special prosecutor Robert Muller, after completing a special report on Russia’s alleged interference in the U.S. elections in 2016, found no evidence of Donald Trump’s collusion with Russia. The report itself was released on April 18, 2019.
