WASHINGTON — President Donald Trump on Tuesday swung back at special counsel Robert Mueller and his team of investigators as a “gang of angry dems” after it was revealed that Mueller, charged with investigating Russian meddling in the 2016 election, is expected to wrap his investigation soon.
“The Phony Witch Hunt continues, but Mueller and his gang of Angry Dems are only looking at one side, not the other. Wait until it comes out how horribly & viciously they are treating people, ruining lives for them refusing to lie. Mueller is a conflicted prosecutor gone rogue,” the president tweeted first thing Tuesday morning.
“The Fake News Media builds Bob Mueller up as a Saint, when in actuality he is the exact opposite. He is doing TREMENDOUS damage to our Criminal Justice System, where he is only looking at one side and not the other. Heroes will come of this, and it won’t be Mueller and his… terrible Gang of Angry Democrats,” the president wrote in a follow-up tweet.
“Look at their past, and look where they come from. The now $30,000,000 Witch Hunt continues and they’ve got nothing but ruined lives,” Trump carried on. “Where is the Server? Let these terrible people go back to the Clinton Foundation and “Justice” Department!”
The president’s comments mark the second time in as many days that he has taken to Twitter to vent his frustrations over the ongoing investigation.
Prosecutors with Mueller’s legal team told a judge Monday that Paul Manafort, the president’s former campaign chairman, breached his cooperation agreement with Mueller and lied to federal investigators. He was convicted of financial crimes in late August.
The president has denied any wrongdoing in the investigation into Russian collusion.
