Trump on Cohen Raid: "An Attack On Our Country In A True Sense, It's An Attack On What We All Stand For"


President Trump reacts to the FBI raid of his lawyer Michael Cohen in a statement from the cabinet room Monday evening. Trump said what is happening is a "disgrace" and it's "an attack on our country."

"It's an attack on our country in a true sense. It's an attack on what we all stand for," Trump said.

He called the Mueller team the "most biased group of people." He said they have the "biggest conflicts of interests I have ever seen."

PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP: They raided the office of one of my personal attorneys, good man, and it's a disgraceful situation. It's a total witch hunt. I've been saying it for a long time. I've wanted to keep it down. We've given I believe over a million pages worth of documents to the special counsel. They continue to just go forward and here we are talking about Syria, we're talking about a lot of serious things with the greatest fighting force ever and I have this witch hunt constantly going on for over 12 months now. And actually much more than that. You could say it was right after I won the nomination, it started. And it's a disgrace. It's frankly, a real disgrace.

It's an attack on our country in a true sense. It's an attack on what we all stand for.

So when I saw this and when I heard it, I heard it like you did. I said, that is really now in a whole new level of unfairness. So this has been going on -- I saw one of the reporters who is not necessarily a fan of mine, not necessarily very good to me, he said, in effect, that this is ridiculous. This is now getting ridiculous.

They found to collusion whatsoever with Russia. The reason they found it is that there was no collusion at all. No collusion. This is the most biased group of people -- these people have the biggest conflicts of interest I've ever seen. Democrats, all, just about all.
