President Donald Trump urged Attorney General Jeff Sessions to end the special counsel investigation being run by Robert Mueller in a series of five tweets on Wednesday morning. In his first two tweets, Trump blasted FBI agent Peter Strzok, saying that he "should have recused himself on day one" because of his personal bias against Trump.
“FBI Agent Peter Strzok (on the Mueller team) should have recused himself on day one. He was out to STOP THE ELECTION OF DONALD TRUMP. He needed an insurance policy. Those are illegal, improper goals, trying to influence the Election. He should never, ever been allowed to........
.....remain in the FBI while he himself was being investigated. This is a real issue. It won’t go into a Mueller Report because Mueller is going to protect these guys. Mueller has an interest in creating the illusion of objectivity around his investigation.” ALAN DERSHOWITZ....
In his third tweet, Trump called on Sessions to "stop this Rigged Witch Hunt right now."
..This is a terrible situation and Attorney General Jeff Sessions should stop this Rigged Witch Hunt right now, before it continues to stain our country any further. Bob Mueller is totally conflicted, and his 17 Angry Democrats that are doing his dirty work are a disgrace to USA!
The president then went on to defend Paul Manafort, who is currently on trial for multiple crimes relating to his work as a lobbyist for a pro-Russian group in Ukraine. Trump pointed out that Manafort only worked for his campaign for a short time and added that the "old charges have nothing to do with Collusion."
Paul Manafort worked for Ronald Reagan, Bob Dole and many other highly prominent and respected political leaders. He worked for me for a very short time. Why didn’t government tell me that he was under investigation. These old charges have nothing to do with Collusion - a Hoax!
Trump ended with a tweet reiterating his belief that the Russia investigation is a "total hoax" that was started based on a "phony and discredited Dossier."
Russian Collusion with the Trump Campaign, one of the most successful in history, is a TOTAL HOAX. The Democrats paid for the phony and discredited Dossier which was, along with Comey, McCabe, Strzok and his lover, the lovely Lisa Page, used to begin the Witch Hunt. Disgraceful!
