Baker continued: “The conclusions are quite clear that the President’s statements over these past several years were all wrong — that there was no hoax, there was no conspiracy to overthrow anybody, there was no sedition, there was no treason, there was no evidence of any of that.”
He added that Trump’s statements have had a negative effect on his family and former colleagues.
“I found it really quite surprising and just not appropriate under these circumstances given what he said and given what the IG had found,” he said.
Baker told Cuomo that Trump’s continued disparaging attacks had been “traumatic,” but said, “I have just resolved that I refuse to get down in the mud with anybody.”
“I just refuse. It’s not what’s in the best interest of the country.”
