Former White House press secretary Sean Spicer said Thursday that he has seen "no evidence" to suggest that the investigation into Russian election interference is a politically-motivated witch hunt.
When asked on NBC’s "Today" show if special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation is a witch hunt, Spicer said, "as of now, I see no evidence that it is," adding that there’s also been "no evidence" of collusion between Russia and President Donald Trump’s campaign.
"I think that it’s been going on a long time," Spicer continued.
"There’s the collusion, which we’ve seen no evidence of, so far," he said. "But with respect to the meddling, that’s another thing. And you’ve seen now multiple Russians indicted."
"I think it's very important to be clear that Russia meddled in our election and there's no evidence of collusion," he said.
Host Savannah Guthrie also asked, "Do you regret sticking your neck out for his more outlandish claims that turn out to be false? I’m thinking about for example, the inauguration crowd size, the three to five million fraudulent votes in the election, having tapes of [former FBI Director James] Comey in the Oval Office. I mean those are three examples of things that are now known not to be true."
"I appreciate you keeping it to only three," Spicer responded, adding that Trump is generally "truthful," but uses "hyperbole to sell issues and that’s how he his, he’s a salesman and a negotiator and a businessman first and foremost."
