Rep. Cole: Trump Should Stop Commenting on Russia Probe

MSNBC's "Morning Joe"

President Donald Trump should refrain from tweeting or commenting about the Russia investigation, according to Rep. Tom Cole, R-Okla.

"I think the president can do some very good things with Twitter, he's done some very good things with it, but in terms of investigations, my advice is it's just better not to comment on it," Cole said Friday on MSNBC's "Morning Joe."

"Let the professionals do their job. The more quickly they can do it and get it done, the better off you're going to be," he added.

The investigation is not a "witch hunt" as the president has said, according to Cole. "Robert Mueller has got a lifetime (of) credibility. Let's let him do his job."

The congressman said those who are leaking information from the White House are breaking the law, and he believed that, for the president, "that's fair to point out."

Cole believes Trump needs to let the probe play out.

"The basic investigation needs to proceed. I think in the end it's going to clear him. I don't see any evidence of collusion, and the legal people I talk to don't see any evidence of obstruction. So, let the investigation go on and let the chips fall where they may," he said.

Back in April, Cole spoke about the Russia probe in an NPR interview.

"It's worth noting there is a Senate investigation, and there is an FBI investigation. So I think we're coming at this with enough angles that we will get to the truth," he said.
