President Trump on Tuesday denied that he instructed Attorney General William Barr to assign a federal prosecutor to examine the origins of the federal Russia investigation.

“No, I didn’t ask him to do it. I didn’t know it,” Trump told reporters Tuesday. “I didn’t know it, but I think it’s a great thing that he did it. I saw it last night, and they want to look at how that whole hoax got started. It was a hoax. I am so proud of our attorney general that he is looking into it. I think it’s great. I did not know about it, no.”
