President Trump went on to Twitter on Saturday, as usual we might add, and unleashed a veritable storm of accusations against special counsel Robert Mueller and his never-ending investigation. The POTUS asserted that the investigation on the alleged Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election, an investigation that lingers for more than a year now with zero results, should never have been opened in the first place.
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!

This series of tweets were made following the POTUS’ lawyer John Dowd’s statement which called Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, the man who appointed Robert Mueller as special counsel and also oversees the investigation, to shut down the probe. However, John Dowd explained that he’s not speaking on behalf of the president in this regard, as he’s just expressing a personal opinion on the matter.
These tweet-bombs come in the aftermath of the DOJ firing former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe on Friday. McCabe was accused of leaking information to the press and misleading congressional investigators. It’s important to note that Trump did not order the firing of McCabe. It was recommended by an internal investigation of the FBI and carried out by Sessions at the Dept. of Justice.
Following his firing, McCabe pushed back (he lost his pension/benefits 2 days before his official retirement as a consequence of being fired) against the accusations, saying that he was ousted for political reasons, and obviously, the POTUS and his DOJ are trying to sabotage Robert Mueller’s probe into Russian election interference.
This whole thing is insane. Regardless of how much you may hate Trump, for all the endless leaks, the only evidence of anyone “colluding” with Russia is the absolute proof that the Clinton campaign and the DNC paid Russian thugs to invent a phony dossier, and then funneled it to dishonest FBI personnel who presented it to crooked FISA court judge via Peter Strzok’s buddy Rudolph Contreras under false pretenses. There isn’t, and never has been, a shred of evidence that Trump or anyone around him was involved with any Russian attempt to affect the election. The whole investigation is a corrupt, criminal effort to undermine the administration which, however much you may hate it (or not), was legitimately elected.
Democrats wanted a “Russian collusion” investigation and they’re about to get one, one they’re NOT gonna like! Comey, McCabe, Strzok, Steele, Brock, Abedin, Lynch, Holder, Hillary and Obama all belong in prison.
