President Donald Trump criticized the appointment of a special counsel to the investigate allegations that the Trump campaign colluded with the Russians during 2016 election.
“With all of the illegal acts that took place in the Clinton campaign & Obama Administration, there was never a special councel (sic) appointed!” Trump wrote on Twitter early Thursday morning.
Former FBI Director Robert Mueller was appointed as a special counsel on the case by the Justice Department, in response to reports that Trump spoke with former FBI Director James Comey about letting his former National Security adviser, Michael Flynn, go.
Trump expressed his frustration with the process, describing it as a “witch hunt.”
This is the single greatest witch hunt of a politician in American history!
