President Trump called ABC News anchor George Stephanopoulos “a little wise guy” when pressed on not answering questions in person from special counsel Robert Mueller’s team.
“Wait a minute. I did answer questions. I answered them in writing,” Trump said during the testy interview.
“Not on obstruction,” Stephanopoulos replied.
“George, you’re being a little wise guy, OK, which is, you know, typical for you,” Trump hit back.
“Just so you understand. Very simple. It’s very simple. There was no crime. There was no collusion. The big thing’s collusion. Now, there’s no collusion. That means … it was a setup, in my opinion, and I think it’s going to come out,” he continued.
