Trump Launches Furious Morning Tweet Claiming No ‘Collusion’ After Mueller Questions ‘Leaked’

President Donald Trump started his Tuesday busy on his phone, furiously tweeting about leaked questions that special counsel Robert Mueller wants to ask him about his business and political ties to Russia.

The president insisted there was “no collusion” with Russia in a comma-filled Tuesday morning tweet after the New York Times reported a list of questions Mueller shared with Trump’s attorneys in advance of a possible interview.

“So disgraceful that the questions concerning the Russian Witch Hunt were ‘leaked’ to the media,” Trump tweeted. “No questions on Collusion. Oh, I see…you have a made up, phony crime, Collusion, that never existed, and an investigation begun with illegally leaked classified information. Nice!”

The reported questions show Mueller’s team is interested in learning whether Trump’s campaign chairman Paul Manafort, who has been indicted, solicited campaign help from the Russian government.

Other questions show the special counsel hopes to learn what Trump knew about other campaign associates’ communications with Russian agents before and after the election.

Former White House Counsel, John Dean, said the very act of releasing the questions is an obstruction of justice.
