Who Are the ’13 Angry Democrats?’ More on Trump’s New Mueller-Probe Nickname

President Trump gave some of the people investigating alleged ties between Russia and his 2016 presidential campaign a new nickname over the weekend: “13 Angry Democrats.”

He tweeted on Tuesday morning:

Part of Trump’s claim is true. PolitiFact confirmed 13 of the 17 attorney staff working for Special Counsel Robert Mueller “are registered Democrats,” while an additional staff member is a registered Democrat according to media sources.

It should be pointed out (and PolitiFact did the same) that Mueller himself is a registered Republican.

In another tweet on Tuesday morning, the president said he would stop focusing on Russia, Hillary Clinton, and Barack Obama, and start focusing on North Korea, trade, and the economy.

Political observers will have to wait and see on that one. By NTK Network’s count, the president has tweeted about the investigations into his campaign at least 13 times since Saturday morning.
