Trump Just Lashed Out On Twitter Claiming ‘Presidential Privilege’ Allows Him To Break The Law
Donald Trump truly believes he is above the law. He continues to claim that being president allows him to do anything he wants.
On Tuesday, Trump took to Twitter to rant about the ongoing subpoenas issued by the House Judiciary Committee to former Trump administration officials.
Trump claimed that he had already allowed his officials to testify despite having the “Presidential Privilege” not to do so.
“So even though I didn’t have to do it with Presidential Privilege, I allowed everyone to testify, including White House Counsel Don McGahn (for over 30 hours), to Robert Mueller and the 18 Angry Trump-Hating Democrats, and they arrived at a conclusion of NO COLLUSION and NO OBSTRUCTION! The Dems were unhappy with the outcome of the $40M Mueller Report, so now they want a do-over,” Trump tweeted Tuesday

Trump’s tweet is filled with lies. He claimed to have allowed McGahn to testify to special counsel Robert Mueller. But the truth is that he threw a fit once he found out McGahn had cooperated with Mueller and instantly called for his firing.
