President Donald Trump is accusing those responsible for launching the special counsel investigation of “treason” and says they “will certainly be looked at.”

Trump did not specify who he’s referring to, but told reporters Monday, that “There are a lot of people out there that have done some very, very evil things, very bad things. I would say treasonous things against our country.”

Trump adds that, “Those people will certainly be looked at” and says: “I’ve been looking at them for a long time.”

The comments come a day after the attorney general told Congress that special counsel Robert Mueller found no evidence Trump or his associates conspired with Russia to influence the 2016 election.

Asked about the possibility of issuing pardons, Trump also says: I “haven’t thought about it.”

President Donald Trump says the release of special counsel Robert Mueller’s report “wouldn’t bother me at all.”

Trump says he’s glad Mueller’s investigation into Russian meddling is over and wishes it could have gone quicker. Trump says “we can never let this happen to another president again.”

Asked Monday whether Mueller had acted honorably, Trump responded: “Yes, he did.”

Attorney General William Barr has told Congress that Mueller found no evidence Trump or his associates conspired with Russia to influence the 2016 presidential election. Mueller did not make a determination on whether Trump obstructed justice.

Trump was asked about Mueller’s report as he spoke to reporters along with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu (neh-ten-YAH’-hoo).

The Republican chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee says his panel will “unpack the other side of the story” of special counsel Robert Mueller’s probe into President Donald Trump and his campaign.

Sen. Lindsey Graham, who spent the weekend with Trump in Florida, said his committee will investigate the actions of the Justice Department in the Russia investigation, including the FBI’s use of a dossier compiled by British spy Christopher Steele.

Graham spoke Monday after Attorney General William Barr reported to Congress on Mueller’s findings. Barr said Mueller found no evidence that Trump or his associates conspired with Russia. Mueller did not make a determination on whether Trump obstructed justice.

Graham said he will be speaking with Barr at noon and wants him to testify before his committee.
