Trump admits to collusion attempt without knowing it

 article about trump admits to collusion
Trump said on Wednesday that had he know Attorney General Jeff Sessions would recuse himself from overseeing the investigation into his connection with Russia, he would have never appointed him. But by saying that, wasn't he actually saying that he appointed the man in hopes that he would end the investigation without actually doing any investigation?

"Very unfair to the president," he said.

Jeff Sessions was one of Trump's earliest political supporters, so Trump had hoped that Sessions wouldn't care about his potential dealings with Russia.

"Sessions should have never recused himself, and if he was going to recuse himself, he should have told me before he took the job and I would have picked somebody else," Trump said. And again, he's admitting that had he known, he would have appointed someone who would do exactly what he asked for. While on many other issues this kind of expectation is valid, if the investigation is about you, that's not how it works, Mr. president.

Trump has also said that "I don't think we're under investigation. I'm not under investigation. For what? I didn't do anything wrong." But if that's true, what are you worried about? And if you haven't done anything wrong, why are you still worried about people getting to see your tax returns?

Attorney General Jeff Sessions recused himself after acknowledging he had failed to disclose meetings with a Russian ambassador, and Rod J. Rosenstein took control of the investigation. Rosenstein appointed Robert S. Mueller III, former FBI director, as special counsel to oversee the investigation into Trump's campaign and Russia.

Mr. Rosenstein said that "it is in the public interest for me to exercise my authorities and appoint a special counsel to assume responsibility for this matter."

Mueller is viewed as one of the most credible law enforcement officials in the country.

Trump has been asked to share his tax returns numerous times. Yet, he still hasn't done it. But why? While all of the following could be wrong, if he's not sharing them, there must be a reason for it.
