Byron York With Levin: Mueller Report Became World's Biggest 'Nevermind'
On "Life, Liberty & Levin," Washington Examiner columnist and Fox News contributor Byron York said he believes the Mueller report validates President Trump's recent statement that the investigation was "two years of BS."
York said the probe started in 2016 with a "very serious accusation" about the Trump campaign coordinating with Russia to defeat Hillary Clinton, but officials got "carried away."
He recalled then-FBI Director James Comey briefing Trump in early 2017 on the supposed existence of a sex tape involving Russian prostitutes, an allegation contained in the unverified Steele dossier.
Levin emphasized that former officials like James Clapper, John Brennan and Andrew McCabe went on to suggest in TV interviews that Trump was treasonous and doing "Vladimir Putin's bidding." He asked whether any will be held accountable in light of Mueller's findings.
"This is the world's biggest 'nevermind.' It's astonishing," York said, arguing that the media should have known based on Mueller's previous indictments that he was not going to pursue a collusion case.
Mueller's report exposed disagreements involving Trump's inner circle over the investigation and the president's efforts to curtail it.
The report also depicted an array of controversial actions and requests made by the president that were examined as part of an obstruction inquiry.
