Trump's suggestion that there are conflicts of interest in this case, especially given the fact that James Comey would have no reason to lie under oath and risk years in prison for doing so, seems like yet another falsehood from the President in order to distract from the main target, himself.

"I mean the whole thing is ridiculous, if you want to know the truth, from that standpoint". "Our veterans have fulfilled their duty to our nation and now we must fulfil our duty to them", Trump said during the ceremony.

Mr Trump also said that the people who were hired by the special counsel's office were "all Hillary supporters".

President Trump told Fox News on Friday that Mueller's friendship with Comey "very bothersome", nothing they were "very, very good friends".
