TRUMP: INVESTIGATE HOW ‘FRAUDULENT’ MUELLER PROBE STARTED
President Donald Trump on Sunday called for an investigation into how Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s “fraudulent” probe started.
“Everybody is asking how the phony and fraudulent investigation of the No Collusion, No Obstruction Trump Campaign began,” Trump tweeted. “We need to know for future generations to understand. This Hoax should never be allowed to happen to another President or Administration again!”
Trump has criticized Mueller’s probe since it ended last week.
Mueller’s report, as summarized last Sunday by Attorney General William Barr, “did not find that the Trump campaign or anyone associated with it conspired or coordinated with Russia in its efforts to influence the 2016 U.S. presidential election.”
