"It's clear that the President is frustrated by the continued witch-hunt of the Russia investigation, and he'd love for this to come to a full conclusion so that everyone can focus fully on the thing that he was elected to do," White House Deputy Press Secretary Sarah Sanders told reporters at her daily news conference.
"That's what he'd like to be focused on," Sanders said.
Yesterday media reports said that the FBI Special Counsel Robert Mueller is looking into finances of his family businesses. Mueller has been tasked by the Department of Justice to investigate Russian meddling into US presidential elections last year and a possible connection between the Trump campaign and Russian.
Trump has refuted those charges. "The President has been clear many times before that he has no financial dealings whatsoever with Russia. The point the President is making is that the investigation should stay within the confines of Russia meddling in the election and nothing beyond that," Sanders said in response to a question.
"I think it's pretty clear how the process will turn out from our side is that this will be proven to be the witch-hunt that it is, and that nothing further will happen," Sanders said in response to a question.
Muller, media reports said yesterday, is examining a broad range of transactions involving Trump's businesses as well as those of his associates. Trump has opposed such a line of investigation.
