Trump Takes Big Swing At Muller And ‘Gaga Lovers’ Ahead Of Testimony
President Donald Trump is out swinging wildly, trashing former special counsel Robert Mueller as he came up with a deal to testify in the House Intelligence and Judiciary Committees on July 24.
The testimony was delayed for one week but as part of the deal, Mueller agreed to extend the time lawmakers will have to question him. In response, Trump is getting his attack lines ready and is relying on right-wing group ‘Judicial Watch’ to back up his wild claims.
Trump on Saturday claimed without evidence that Mueller and his team of carrying out “illegal deletion” of text messages that were exchanged between former FBI officials Peter Strzok and Lisa Page.
“This is one of the most horrible abuses of all. Those texts between gaga lovers would have told the whole story. Illegal deletion by Mueller. They gave us ‘the insurance policy,’” Trump wrote on Twitter.
This is not the first time Trump has made the claim. “Robert Mueller terminated their text messages together,” Trump said during an interview with Fox Business last month. “He terminated them. They’re gone. And that’s illegal. That’s a crime.” Needless to say, the president has not presented any evidence to back up his explosive claim.
Trump also retweeted several messages from Judicial Watch, including a quote from the group’s president, Tom Fitton, who claims the Mueller probe was “part of an effort to remove the president from office improperly. ”
The president also retweeted a message from Judicial Watch that calls on the president to order the Department of Justice to reopen an investigation into Hillary Clinton.
