(CNSNews.com) – Former Sen. Rick Santorum (R-Pa.) said Sunday on CNN’s “State of the Union With Jake Tapper” told President Donald Trump’s decision to give Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s team “unfettered” access to White House lawyer Don McGahn shows that the president is not trying to obstruct the Russia investigation.

Santorum was asked during a panel discussion what he thought of Trump attorney Rudy Giuliani’s comments that Trump wants to be open and transparent, which is why he encouraged 30 witnesses, including McGahn, to testify.

“Can you, as a supporter of the president, look at this report in “The New York Times” and say, well, it looks like they’re giving them full transparency, time to wrap it up?” Tapper asked.

“I don’t know how you look at it otherwise. I mean, you can look at it as maybe a bad legal tactic on the part of the president and his team to allow your general counsel to have unfettered — I mean, the special counsel to have unfettered access to your general counsel. But you certainly can’t make the argument that they’re covering up anything or they’re trying to obstruct anything,” Santorum said.

“The reality is they provided record numbers of documents. They’ve let the general counsel for 30 hours be in front of the special counsel. That — that to me this is good news story for the president,” Santorum said.
