President Trump on Tuesday took aim at special counsel Robert Mueller, one day after Mueller said in a new filing that Trump’s former campaign chairman, Paul Manafort, had violated a plea agreement by lying to federal prosecutors.
In a series of tweets, Trump lashed out at Mueller, accusing him of causing “tremendous” damage to the nation’s criminal justice system and calling the special counsel a “conflicted prosecutor” who is “only looking at one side” in his investigation.
“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….,” Trump wrote early Tuesday morning.
“The Fake News Media builds Bob Mueller up as a Saint, when in actuality he is the exact opposite,” Trump continued in a subsequent tweet. “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. 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. Where is the Server? Let these terrible people go back to the Clinton Foundation and “Justice” Department!
