Trump on 60 minutes
Trump refused to pledge not to shut down special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation.
In a "60 Minutes" interview airing in full Sunday evening, Trump was asked point-blank if he would commit to never attempting to end the probe he has routinely derided as a "witch hunt."
"Will you pledge -- pledge that you will not shut down the Mueller investigation?" asked CBS News' Lesley Stahl.
"Well, I-- I don't pledge anything. But I will tell you, I have no intention of doing that. I think it’s a very unfair investigation because there was no collusion of any kind," Trump said. "But you won't pledge --" Stahl began.

"Man, he didn't want to answer that," Lesley Stahl says of President Trump's response to her question about pledging not to fire Robert Mueller. "But you know something? He enjoyed the sparring."
