Deputy Press Sec. Shah: Trump Changes Personal, Not WH Legal Team

(Fox News' "America's Newsroom")

By    |   Tuesday, 20 March 2018 01:59 PM EDT

President Donald Trump has been adding to his personal legal team, and he still maintains that there was no collusion with Russia during his presidential election, White House Principal Deputy Press Secretary Raj Shah said Tuesday.

"This is the president's personal legal team, and that is different from the White House legal team," Shah told Fox News' "America's Newsroom." "What we've said all along still holds. The president maintains there was no collusion, no obstruction in the matter and once a special counsel's investigation is completed, there will be no wrongdoing."

The White House is continuing to cooperate with special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation, continued Shah, and there has been no evidence any collusion occurred, "though millions has been spent in documents and witnesses interviewed."

Trump, he insisted, won the 2016 election through the Electoral College "because of his message and the ability to galvanize the American people and not outside matters or influence. There was no collusion in the matter."

Shah also discussed the recent string of bombings in Austin, Texas, including the news that a package bomb exploded early Tuesday inside a FedEx distribution center near San Antonio, leaving one worker with minor injuries.

"The White House is monitoring the situation," said Shah. "The president is watching this closely. We have FBI agents on the ground who are coordinating closely with local law enforcement and looking to find the exact nature of the package sent overnight and this other recent spate of incidents."

Also on Tuesday, Shah commented on the looming government funding deadline, telling the program that the administration remains confident that a funding bill will be reached by the end of the week that "funds this White House and president's priorities."

"We're focusing on the military and a package that will present over $700 billion in funding for the military for this year and a little bit more for next year," said Shah. "That's what [Defense] Sec. [James] Mattis and the president's generals have told him. They need to reinvigorate our U.S. military and protect our national security. It will also fund hopefully our core priorities of infrastructure, supporting and protecting our veterans and funding to combat the opioid crisis."
