Trump on Russia probe: 'A total WITCH HUNT with massive conflicts of interest!'
President Trump on Monday continued to go after special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into the 2016 election interference.
“A total WITCH HUNT with massive conflicts of interest!” Trump posted a short tweet in an apparent reference to the probe.
It follows his other recent tweets on the matter.
“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 in a tweet on Sunday.
“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!” the president tweeted on Saturday.
Axios points out Trump’s Monday morning tweet was preceded by Sean Hannity’s appearance on Fox News show ‘Fox & Friends.’
“We do have, sadly, at the upper levels at the FBI and the Department of Justice, serious issues, crimes that really need to be investigated,” Hannity said during his remarks on former FBI deputy director Andrew McCabe’s firing.
