In reality Mueller is digging into crimes committed by Comey, Clinton, McCabe and other Democrats. And the president enjoyed a rock-star welcome at the annual meeting of the National Rifle Association.
"Trump is claiming that he paid Cohen a monthly fee to hush up all the affairs he wasn't having", Colbert continued. NPR's Scott Horsley joins us now from the White House to talk about all this.
So just keep asking yourself, and asking others: Have you ever heard of a multibillionaire who couldn't pay a $130,000 bill and needed a 120-day or longer loan from his lawyer to cover the bill?
SCOTT HORSLEY, BYLINE: Hi, Mary Louise. Fire the entire Federal Bureau of Investigation and the US attorneys of the Southern District of NY as well? But the president is complaining he's not getting credit for it. We is not going to relaxation till justice is served.
Arsene Wenger to leave Arsenal with no European trophy
Arsenal have been knocked out of the Europa League by Atletico Madrid in Arsene Wenger's last European match in charge. It's going to be a fascinating game. "It is not hard to correct but our home form was very good.
President Donald Trump told reporters on the White House lawn Friday morning that he'd "like to speak" with Special Counsel Robert Mueller "because we've done nothing wrong". On Tuesday, the special counsel's office and Flynn, a key cooperator, agreed to put off setting his sentencing date for another 60 days, saying the delay was necessary "due to the status" of the investigation. Right now, it's a pure witch hunt. In one question, Mueller asks what Trump knew about campaign staff, including his former campaign chairman Paul Manafort, reaching out to Moscow. Trump's attorneys aren't really going to start refusing to produce documents or destroying evidence, I trust.
Comey admitted that, "I didn't take a poll among all the kids, but I am pretty sure at least my four daughters, probably all five of my kids, wanted Hillary Clinton to be the first woman President. So he fired him, and he said, 'I'm free of this guy'". In that case: "I had sex with Donald Trump".
Several Republican House committee chairmen have recently negotiated deals with the Justice Department to turn over documents related to Russian Federation investigations into Trump and also the 2016 investigation into Democrat Hillary Clinton's emails.
Trump and his lawyers believe Mueller has concluded that he can not charge Trump with crimes and will go no farther than to issue a final report to his Justice Department supervisor, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, likely in the hope that Rosenstein shares his findings with Congress. What are they - what's the argument there?

"This signals a new phase", said one senior Trump adviser who was granted anonymity to describe private conversations. Look what I said.
Sanders on Thursday had to acknowledge that Giuliani hadn't given her a heads-up that he would reveal that Trump had reimbursed Cohen. He said he would defend the president's daughter Ivanka Trump but suggested that her husband, Jared Kushner, was "disposable".
Giuliani's remarks - that Trump knew about the payment and had repaid Cohen for it - seemed to contradict Trump's past statements appeared to draw his ire on Friday. Little noticed in that interview he gave to Fox's Brett Baier was his recounting of a triple dinner date with John Brennan and Jim Clapper and their spouses, at which he said they never discussed the Trump controversies.
"Emmet Flood will be joining the White House Staff to represent the president and the administration against the Russian Federation witch hunt", Trump's Press Secretary Sarah Sanders said. The payment was made to resolve a personal and false allegation in order to protect the President's family.

HORSLEY: Well. The NRA feels. So much for fake news media reports Comey is a Republican! Especially after school shootings like the one in Parkland. Fla. They were sort of united in their reservations.
