When speaking with Sean Hannity about Russia investigations involving former Special Counsel Robert Mueller, Trump said a friend called him “innocent” and “perfect.”

“And then you have these prosecutors who are Mueller-related. The whole Mueller-related thing,” Trump said.

“One of my friends said to me, ‘You have to be the most innocent man in the history of the United States.’

Trump said “18 angry Democrat geniuses” that were “after me” spent millions of dollars “and they got nothing on me.”

“I think I am probably. – one of my friends said, ‘You have to be the most perfect person.’

“Isn’t that true?” Trump said with a smile.

The audience began applauding after Trump’s comments.

Earlier this month, Trump asserted he “must be the most honest man in America.”

“Mueller should have never been appointed although he did prove that I must be the most honest man in America!” Trump tweeted.

His comment came after Rod Rosenstein, the acting Attorney General at the time of the incidents, testified about appointing Mueller as special counsel to the FBI during the investigations.

Rosenstein defended making Mueller special counsel, saying he believed it “was the best way to complete the investigation appropriately and promote public confidence in its conclusions.”

In May, the Justice Department released a mostly unredacted version of Rosenstein’s August 2017 memo outlining the authority of the former special counsel.

The newly-released version of the memo said that Mueller could investigate if former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn “committed a crime or crimes by engaging in conversations with Russian government officials during the period of the Trump transition.”

Mueller’s investigation ultimately concluded that Russia interfered in the 2016 US election.

However, his investigation said there was not enough evidence to link Trump’s campaign and Russia in a criminal conspiracy.

Trump’s comments on Fox News came just the day after a federal appeals court ordered a judge to dismiss the criminal case against Flynn.

Flynn pleaded guilty in 2017 to willfully and knowingly making false statements to the FBI.
