President Trump says he finds it "bothersome" that Robert Mueller, the special counsel investigating Russian meddling in the 2016 election, is "very good friends" with fired FBI Director James Comey.

Journalist and author Garrett Graff (@vermontgmg) talks with Here & Now's Robin Young about the history between the two men, including that famous confrontation in the hospital room of Attorney General John Ashcroft.

This segment aired on July 17, 2017.
