What would special counsel Robert Mueller’s testimony before the House be without an accompanying tweetstorm from Trump?
Mueller was appointed to lead the investigation into the Trump campaign concerning Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election. In the investigation, Mueller claimed to find no evidence that would exonerate Trump from any wrongdoing, nor evidence of criminal activity.
While Mueller prepared to appear before the House Wednesday morning, Trump woke up bright and early to air his grievances on Twitter about “The Greatest Witch Hunt in U.S. history, by far!”
Some of his rant concerned the participation of Mueller top lieutenant Adam Zebley, whose last-minute inclusion sent Trump into a tizzy (out of fear, perhaps):
It was NEVER agreed that Robert Mueller could use one of his many Democrat Never Trumper lawyers to sit next to him and help him with his answers. This was specifically NOT agreed to, and I would NEVER have agreed to it. The Greatest Witch Hunt in U.S. history, by far!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) July 24, 2019
Trump continued his display on Twitter, lamenting about how he is the true victim in this case, and calling the accusations against him “treasonous”:
So Democrats and others can illegally fabricate a crime, try pinning it on a very innocent President, and when he fights back against this illegal and treasonous attack on our Country, they call It Obstruction? Wrong! Why didn’t Robert Mueller investigate the investigators?— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) July 24, 2019
Then he brought Hillary Clinton and James Comey into the mix, for some reason.
Why didn’t Robert Mueller & his band of 18 Angry Democrats spend any time investigating Crooked Hillary Clinton, Lyin’ & Leakin’ James Comey, Lisa Page and her Psycho lover, Peter S, Andy McCabe, the beautiful Ohr family, Fusion GPS, and many more, including HIMSELF & Andrew W?— Donald J.

And even suggested that Mueller should have investigated … himself? (Insert Spider-Man pointing at Spider-Man.)
It has been reported that Robert Mueller is saying that he did not apply and interview for the job of FBI Director (and get turned down) the day before he was wrongfully appointed Special Counsel. Hope he doesn’t say that under oath in that we have numerous witnesses to the…— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) July 24, 2019

Finally, the very familiar icing on the cake:
NO COLLUSION, NO OBSTRUCTION!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) July 24, 2019
(Insert chef’s kiss.)
KEEP AMERICA GREAT!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) July 24, 2019
