Trump Tweets Ahead Of Special Counsel Testimony: Why Didn’t Mueller Investigate Himself?

President Donald Trump launched a series of attacks on Special Counsel Robert Mueller just 90 minutes before he was set to testify before Congress. Trump heavily criticized Mueller despite earlier reports that he wouldn’t even watch the hearings.

“So Democrats and others can illegally fabricate a crime, try pinning it on a very innocent President, and when he fights back against this illegal and treasonous attack on our Country, they call It Obstruction? Wrong! Why didn’t Robert Mueller investigate the investigators?” Trump began.

“It was NEVER agreed that Robert Mueller could use one of his many Democrat Never Trumper lawyers to sit next to him and help him with his answers. This was specifically NOT agreed to, and I would NEVER have agreed to it. The Greatest Witch Hunt in U.S. history, by far!”

This is a reference to Mueller’s deputy, who has been brought in to assist him with questions relating to personnel. There is no indication that he is a Democrat.

The President continued:

“Why didn’t Robert Mueller & his band of 18 Angry Democrats spend any time investigating Crooked Hillary Clinton, Lyin’ & Leakin’ James Comey, Lisa Page and her Psycho lover, Peter S, Andy McCabe, the beautiful Ohr family, Fusion GPS, and many more, including HIMSELF & Andrew W?”

Here Trump appears to suggest that Mueller should have investigated himself.

This is simply a rehash of old talking points Trump has been pushing for months, assisted by Fox News. The long series of tweets are a clear sign that Trump and his team are worried about Mueller’s testimony, which is scheduled to begin at 8.30 am ET.
