President Trump on Thursday sarcastically celebrated the anniversary of FBI Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia probe, tweeting “we are now into the second year of the greatest Witch Hunt in American History” and claiming the only collusion came from Democrats.
Mueller’s probe has wreaked havoc on the Trump White House since, with prosecutions of a number of figures linked to Trump's campaign, as his legal team fires back that the investigation is a "witch hunt."
Former Trump national security adviser Michael Flynn was charged and pled guilty to making false statements to the FBI about his communications with the Russian ambassador; former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort was indicted on 32 counts in February, and also charged in a 12-count indictment in October; and former Trump campaign foreign policy adviser George Papadopoulos pled guilty to making false statements to the FBI.
Legal team member Rudy Giuliani told Fox News on Wednesday that Mueller already has assured them the president can't be indicted.
They’re just in denial,” Giuliani told Fox News' John Roberts.
Congratulations America, we are now into the second year of the greatest Witch Hunt in American History...and there is still No Collusion and No Obstruction. The only Collusion was that done by Democrats who were unable to win an Election despite the spending of far more money!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) May 17, 2018
