While complaining about the Russia probe, President Donald Trump on Thursday claimed the special counsel Robert Mueller and former FBI director James Comey are “best friends.”
His citation? A “picture file.”
“They were supposedly best friends,” Trump said. “You look at the picture file and you see hundreds of pictures of him and Comey.”
It’s unclear what Trump’s referring to. Pictures of Mueller and Comey certainly exist, but that’s hardly surprising given that Mueller was Comey’s predecessor as FBI director.
