President Donald Trump continued his onslaught against special counsel Robert Mueller’s Russian collaboration probe, which he had dubbed a “witch hunt,” taking to Twitter to charge that the investigation has “devastated and destroyed” lives.
“Who’s going to give back the young and beautiful lives (and others) that have been devastated and destroyed by the phony Russia Collusion Witch Hunt?” Trump said in the tweet. “They journeyed down to Washington, D.C., with stars in their eyes and wanting to help our nation…They went back home in tatters!”
The president did not specify who he was referring to, but former national security adviser Michael Flynn is one name that comes to mind.
Trump referenced the “phony Russia problem” in a tweet Saturday afternoon that called out the “crooked highest levels” of the FBI and Department of Justice, while commenting on the reports of spies in his 2016 presidential campaign.
He tweeted: “With Spies, or ‘Informants’ as the Democrats like to call them because it sounds less sinister (but it’s not), all over my campaign, even from a very early date, why didn’t the crooked highest levels of the FBI or “Justice” contact me to tell me of the phony Russia problem?”
And make no mistake, President Trump is taking the whole sordid affair personally.
In two other tweets, he said the “whole Russia Probe is Rigged,” and questioned the conflict of interest of “13 Angry Democrats.”
The reference to “13 Angry Democrats” pertains to members of Mueller’s team who are Democrats — 13 out of 17 total members.
Trump came back to the “13 Angry Democrats” on Sunday, charging that they looked past “many crimes” by “Crooked Hillary Clinton,” while again describing the Mueller probe as a “rigged investigation.”
“Why didn’t the 13 Angry Democrats investigate the campaign of Crooked Hillary Clinton, many crimes, much Collusion with Russia?” he tweeted. “Why didn’t the FBI take the Server from the DNC? Rigged Investigation!”
Muller is under growing pressure to bring the investigation which began over a year ago to a close. He is reportedly in talks with Trump’s legal team to set up a potential interview with the president, which would likely signal the end of his probe.
