Trump Accuses Mueller Probe of Working to Sabotage GOP Chances in Midterm Elections

President Donald Trump took to Twitter on Saturday to blame the “rigged witch hunt” for ruining the Republican’s chances in the midterm elections.

“The Rigged Witch Hunt, headed by the 13 Angry Democrats (and now 4 more have been added, one who worked directly for Obama W.H.), seems intent on damaging the Republican Party’s chances in the November Election,” Trump wrote. “This Democrat excuse for losing the ‘16 Election never ends!”

He then added: “No Collusion, No Obstruction – but that doesn’t matter because the 13 Angry Democrats, who are only after Republicans and totally protecting Democrats, want this Witch Hunt to drag out to the November Election. Republicans better get smart fast and expose what they are doing!”

While it is unclear what exactly prompted Trump’s tweet, the tweet follows reports by Bloomberg and other outlets that the fallout from the Russian meddling and Putin summit has rattled the GOP.

Newsmax, run by Trump pal Chris Ruddy, however, had a different take, quoting two GOP Senators who claimed the Helsinki summit would not impact the GOP’s midterm chances and downplayed talk Trump’s performance may hurt his own party come November.
