President Trump said Wednesday that “it would certainly be hard to believe” that former President Barack Obama was unaware of what the FBI was doing back in 2016.
The President spoke with WMAL radio host Larry O’Connor, and said that he was considering holding his own press conference on Thursday following the public release of the Mueller report.
President Trump went on to praise Attorney General William Barr, saying “he’s grabbed it by the horn.”
The conversation continued to several former Obama-era officials, most of whom are probably going to be investigated in the coming months as Attorney General Barr has pledged, and President Trump touted the fact that he had called attention to them as “one of my great achievements, actually.”
President Trump also shared his strong opinions when it came to whether or not ex president Obama was aware of what the FBI was doing.
“How is it possible that he didn’t know?” he asked. “I mean, we’re talking about pervasive, horrible things that were happening.”
“It would certainly be hard to believe that he didn’t know what was going on,” President Trump concluded.
Attorney General Barr and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein are expected to release the Mueller report and give a press conference Thursday morning at 9:30 a.m. EST.
