Mueller Just Made a Big Legal Move And Trump Lost It On Twitter

Donald Trump on Friday launched a Twitter tirade against special counsel Robert Mueller ahead of an expected filing later in the day concerning the case against former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort and former Trump personal lawyer Michael Cohen.

In a flurry of early-morning tweets, Trump took aim at Mueller and the expected report that could shed more light on Mueller’s investigation into whether Trump’s campaign colluded with Russia to interfere in the 2016 election.

He also targeted former FBI director James Comey, calling Comey and Mueller “best friends.”

“Robert Mueller and Leakin’ Lyin’ James Comey are Best Friends, just one of many Mueller Conflicts of Interest,” Trump tweeted. “And bye the way, wasn’t the woman in charge of prosecuting Jerome Corsi (who I do not know) in charge of “legal” at the corrupt Clinton Foundation? A total Witch Hunt…”

“….Will Robert Mueller’s big time conflicts of interest be listed at the top of his Republicans only Report,” Trump continued in a subsequent tweet. “Will Andrew Weissman’s horrible and vicious prosecutorial past be listed in the Report. He wrongly destroyed people’s lives, took down great companies, only to be……..”

He then targeted former presidential opponent Hillary Clinton and the Clinton Foundation, before lashing out at a cadre of other political opponents.

Trump’s latest attacks come following news that his former White House national security adviser, Michael Flynn, could be up for a lighter jail sentence due to his cooperation with the Mueller investigation on a number of investigations.

The tweetstorm also cames hours after a similar tirade Thursday night, aimed at the Mueller probe, which questioned whether an associate of his former adviser Roger Stone had been “forced to lie” by federal prosecutors.

Trump and his allies have long characterized the special counsel probe as a “witch hunt” and a “hoax” despite a number of convictions and guilty pleas handed down so far in the investigation.
