“That’s still wrong for him to do that,” Collins told CNN’s “State of the Union.” “It was wrong of the president even to bring up the subject.”

Comey testified under oath last week that Trump told him to “let go” of the investigation into Flynn during a private meeting, a claim the president’s lawyer denied.

Collins said on Sunday there is “no doubt” Trump should not have discussed the probe during his meeting with Comey.

“The conversation should not have occurred. There’s no doubt about it,” Collins added.
