Sarah Palin Calls Mueller Probe 'Fishing Expedition'

Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin referred to special counsel Robert Mueller's Russia investigation as "a fishing expedition" in a new interview.

Palin, the 2008 vice presidential nominee, spoke with DailyMailTV at the family's home in Wasilla, Alaska. The conversation eventually turned to Mueller's probe, which is looking at whether the Trump campaign colluded with Russia.

"When we go fishing, have we ever stopped before we caught something? No . . . we keep fishing," Palin said. "Unfortunately, that is what's going on in our country."

Palin served as the late Sen. John McCain's running mate in the 2008 presidential election. The pair lost to Barack Obama and Joe Biden, who went on to serve two terms.

Regarding the Republican Party as a whole, Palin told DailyMailTV it is about time its members flexed their muscles.

"They're in power," she said. "They've got the House, the Senate, they have the administration, and yet they're acting like victims and they're always on defense. That's not what the supporters of the platform expect.

"We expect to be on offense in order to clean things up — drain that swamp — get government back on our side and get it off our backs and quit playing victim all the time! You're not going to win a ballgame only playing defense."

Palin served as Alaska governor until July 2009. She has not worked in public office since, but she has kept her name in the news over the years. Despite having been his running mate, she was not invited to McCain's funeral, which took place in the nation's capital over Labor Day weekend.
