President Trump took to Twitter on Sunday to go after special counsel Robert Mueller’s probe into Russian interference in the 2016 election.
“Why does the Mueller team have 13 hardened Democrats, some big Crooked Hillary supporters, and Zero Republicans? Another Dem recently added…does anyone think this is fair? And yet, there is NO COLLUSION!” Trump wrote on Twitter.
This was only one of many tweets he has posted on the matter in the past several days.
“The Mueller probe should never have been started in that there was no collusion and there was no crime. It was based on fraudulent activities and a Fake Dossier paid for by Crooked Hillary and the DNC, and improperly used in FISA COURT for surveillance of my campaign. WITCH HUNT!” Trump wrote in another tweet.

Following the firing of former FBI deputy director Andrew McCabe on Friday, Trump’s lawyer John Dowd called for an end to the Russian investigation headed by Mueller.
“I pray that Acting Attorney General Rosenstein will follow the brilliant and courageous example of the FBI Office of Professional Responsibility and Attorney General Jeff Sessions and bring an end to alleged Russia Collusion investigation manufactured by McCabe’s boss James Comey based upon a fraudulent and corrupt Dossier,” Dowd said in an email to the Daily Beast.
According to the outlet, Dowd initially admitted to speaking on behalf of the president, but he later retracted that statement.
Axios suggests Dowd’s comment indicates that “Trump’s team is going to war with Mueller.”
