Trump Launches Attacks on Mueller ‘Witch Hunt’ in Morning Tweet Storm

A day after the start of the trial of former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort, President Trump railed against Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation in a Wednesday morning tweet storm.

Manafort faces charges related to activity prior to the Trump campaign, when he worked for pro-Russia Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych. Mueller has also indicted former Trump campaign official Rick Gates with similar accusations.

The president began by citing legal scholar Alan Dershowitz’s criticism of Peter Strzok’s involvement in the original investigation.

Then, he immediately called on Attorney General Jeff Sessions to rescind his recusal and bring Mueller’s investigation to an end. “Bob Mueller is totally conflicted, and his 17 Angry Democrats that are doing his dirty work are a disgrace to the USA!” Trump wrote.

In later tweets, Trump defended his campaign’s hiring of Manafort, blaming the federal government for not alerting him to Manafort’s activities, and he reiterated his opposition to the continued existence of Mueller’s “Witch Hunt.”
