John Sununu: Focus on Mueller Probe Dividing the Country

The continued focus on special counsel Robert Mueller and his ongoing investigation is dividing the country, according to former Gov. John Sununu, R-N.H., said Monday.

"The biggest problem the country has right now is this continued focus on Mueller and the investigation – I think it's dividing the country," Sununu, also the White House chief of staff under President George H.W. Bush, told Fox News' "America's Newsroom." "It may not be the most important issue to people but something that does bother them."

Sununu added the Democrats' rhetoric is "really agitating things," but also President Donald Trump's style "has allowed an erosion of the culture of the country, with all the coarseness we saw over the last week with tweets and comments on TV."

To him, "that is the con that is involved here, that somehow we have drifted into a coarser society."

Sununu said he does believe the Mueller matter will be resolved 18 months down the road, when Trump will seek re-election in 2020, but he hopes it is faster than that.

"I cannot imagine that if there is a serious charge against the president it hasn't leaked out, and so I think Mueller is seeking to tidy things up," said Sununu, "but I think the White House is right not to trust the team that Mueller has put together there. So, even though there is more than likely nothing there, they are correct to be concerned."

Show host Bill Hemmer pointed out, with Trump's 500th day in office Monday, America is still waging the experiment it started with Trump's election, by putting a businessman in the White House.

"Every ad says 'I'm not a politician,'" he said. "Now, I know you know that that's poll tested. They've sat down with their focus groups and figured out that's what people want to hear which tells me they aren't willing to give up on what's going on right now in Washington with President Trump."

However, Sununu said he is seeing an "unbelievable drift leftward of all those candidates that are running, talking about free this and free that, socializing America, the Bernie Sanders theory of democratic politics."

Democrats, he added, will find out the left lean won't sell in this year's elections, and "if the Republicans play their game right they will, I think, surprise a lot of people with a much better off year election than they might have been otherwise entitled to."
