President Donald Trump on Sunday suggested he’ll consider appointing a special prosecutor to probe an election he alleges was rife with illegal and "rigged" balloting.
In an interview on Fox News’ “Sunday Morning Futures,” the president also lamented that James Comey — the FBI director Trump fired in 2017, triggering the appointment of special counsel Robert Mueller — and the FBI’s former deputy director, Andrew McCabe, haven't faced tough legal scrutiny for their part in the 2016 election.
“This whole thing is a terrible situation,” he said. “This should have never been allowed to happen, and you know, it's an embarrassment to our country, all over the world they're talking about it and yeah, I would consider a special prosecutor,” he said in answer to host Maria Bartiromo’s question about such an appointment “to investigate” his allegations “and to continue the investigating into what took place in the 2016 election.”
“I went through three years of a special counsel prosecutor,” Trump added. “I call [it] prosecutor because it's a much more accurate term,” he added.
Trump lashed out at “all of the fraud that’s taken place” in the current election that shows Joe Biden the winner, alleging that Dominion voting machines led to fraudulent results — as well as snafus in the mail delivery of mail-in ballots.
“The mailmen are carrying thousands of ballots back and forth, back and forth. There are many mailman that are in big trouble for… getting rid of ballots,” he alleged.
“This is the craziest thing you've ever seen, but many ballots with the name Trump on it were thrown out. You've read that. They found ballots in a river, with the name Trump on from the military. They were signed and they were floating in a river. They found ballots under rocks that had the name Trump on. They were signed and signed with Trump.”
“We won the election easily. There's no way Joe Biden got 80 million votes. I just said, there's no way Joe Biden beat Barack Obama in the Black communities of various cities and then he did very badly compared to Obama in other cities throughout the United States. There's no way it happened.”
“This election was a fraud and it was a rigged election,” he declared.
As for 2016, he railed, Mueller's probe “spent $48 million… they went through taxes and they went through everything for $48 million. You look at everything and they found no collusion, no nothing.”
“It was a Russia hoax, just a pure hoax and a very sad thing for the country," he said. "And as much as I've done — and I think I've done more than virtually in four years more than any president in the history with Space Force and tax cuts, biggest regulation cuts in history, biggest tax cuts in history… the VA — as much as I've done, I could have done more except that I was under investigation … from the day I came down the escalator.”
