And they were very angry. These are the people that after two years and 40 million or 35 million dollars, it'll end up being a lot more than that by the time all the bills are paid. This is what happened. No collusion, no obstruction, no, nothing. They issued 50 orders authorizing use of pen registers, think about the 500 witnesses, and then i have nancy pelosi, go out and say that the president o ...
the united states engaged in a cover-up. Now we've had a house investigation, we have senate investigations, we have investigations like nobody has ever had before and there's nothing. We did nothing wrong, they would have loved to have said we colluded, they would haveloved it. These people were out to get us the republican party and president trump. They were out to get us. This was a one-sided horrible thing. The bottom line is, they said: there's no collusion, no collusion with russia. You heard so much talk about phone calls that my son made to me from this meeting that was set up by gps fusion.

It looks like which is the other side. For those that don't know, and for a year i heard about phone calls went to a special number unauthorized and it would have been my son don who's. A good young man, who's gone through hell and they were calls that must have been made by himbefore. And after the me three calls after massive study at work, they actually found who made the calls one was a friend of ours, a real estate developer, great guy. Most of you know him. Nice guy loves our country and the other one was the head of nascar. Two of them so of the three calls that so horrible that he had a meeting and he called me and then he had the meeting after and he made two more calls and they were written about like this little little lines. Couple of lines. Nobody wanted to admit it. Even last night we had a great election, i went there on monday, we had a an election forfred keller, it was a 50/50 shot and he won in a landslide. We went - and we did a rally hardly mentioned today and yet, if he lost it, would have been the biggest story in the country even bigger than this witch hunt stuff that you guys keep writing about. So here's the bottom line.

There was no collusion. There was no obstruction, we've been doing this since i've been president and actually the crime was committed on the other side, we'll see how that all turns out. I hope it turns out well, but to what to my way of thinking - and i know a lot of you agree with me - the crime was committed on the otherside. This whole thing was a takedown attempt at the president of the united states and honestly, you ought to be ashamed of yourselves for the way you report it so dishonestly, not all of you, but many of you the way you report it. So i've said from the beginning: right from the beginning that you probably can't go down two tracks, you can go down the investigation track and you can go down the investment track or the track of let's get things done for the american people. I love the american people. Drug prices are coming down first time in 51 years because of my administration, but we can get them down way lower working with thedemocrats. We can solve the problem on the border in 15 minutes. If the democrats would give us a few votes, so i just wanted to let you know, then i walked into the room and i told senator schumer speaker pelosi. I want to do infrastructure, i want to do it more than you want to do it. I'D be really good at that. That'S what i do, but you know what you can't do it under these circumstances, so get these phony investigations over with the wall street journal just wrote today, just a little while ago, i saw it mr.

marlo wasn't obstructed in any way. Mr. wall street journal editorial today, mr. malla wasn't obstructed inany way. His copious report copious four hundred and thirty four pages. Now they want to interview all of the same people again. They want an interview. Jerry nadler who's been an enemy of mine for many years. He fought me in new york, unsuccessfully by the way i've had great success against jerry, but he was representing manhattan and he would fight me all the time on the west side railroads many times very, unsuccessfully he failed. I come to washington. I become president that i said: oh no, i have jerry nadler again so wall street journal mr. miller, wasn't obstructed in any way his copious report was released for all to see and there was no collusionthis is the wall street journal and there was no collusion between Russia and the trump campaign - that's it, but they want to make this a big deal, whether or not they carry the bigeye word out.

I can't imagine that, but they probably would because they do whatever they have to do i'll. Tell you there's a danger here. If someday a democrat becomes president, and you have a republican house, they could impeach him for any reason or her any reason. We can't allow that to happen. We can't allow it to happen. So when you look at all of the transparency, when you look at all i've done - and i will tell you my lawyers say youdon't - have to do this - you can use presidential proof, you don't have to let your lawyers and all of your staff testify. You can use presidential privilege, sir, would you recommend it? Well, you can be transparent or you can be tight being if you've done nothing wrong. Being transparent is better. So i said i did nothing wrong, let's be transparent. So that's what you have all of these things. Look at that all of these things 500 witnesses that i allowed to testify it's a disgrace. So when they get everything done, i'm all set lets get infrastructure.

Let'S get drug prices down in the meantime, we're doing tremendous work without them we're doing tremendous executiveorders. A lot of work we've had a great success, most successful economy, perhaps in our country's history, we've cut regulations at a level that nobody else has cut him before the largest tax cut in the history of the country. So we're doing a lot of work steve here, because this meeting was set up a number of days ago, at 11 o'clock. All of a sudden i hear last night, they're gon na have a meeting right before this meeting. To talk about the i word the i word, can you imagine? I don't speak to russians about campaigns when i went to wisconsin and michigan and pennsylvania, i don't say: oh, let's call russia. Maybe they can it'sa hoax, the greatest hoax in history, your power oversight. I respect the courts, i respect congress. I respect right here was where we're standing, but what they've done is abuse. This is investigation, number four and the same thing, probably five, and it really started. I think pretty much from the time we came down the escalator in trump tower, so i say to you that we're going to get everything done, we're doing a lot without them. Let them play their games, we're going to go down one track at a time. Let them finish up and we'll be all set.

Thank you. Everybody [ music, ],.
