Trump Attacks Mueller ‘Trump Haters’ For Being Sources While Claiming ‘Fake News’ Has No Sources

Donald Trump kicked off his weekly Sunday morning Twitter address by attacking Special Counsel Robert Mueller‘s team, accusing them of “illegally leaking information to the press,” while simultaneously attacking the media for not having any sources.

In his first Twitter post of the day Sunday, Trump wrote “Looks like Bob Mueller’s team of 13 Trump Haters & Angry Democrats are illegally leaking information to the press while the Fake News Media make up their own stories with or without sources – sources no longer matter to our corrupt & dishonest Mainstream Media, they are a Joke!”

Trump’s tweet simultaneously criticized members of Mueller’s team for becoming mainstream media news sources, and accuses those same media outlets of not having the sources that Trump just got done denouncing.

It’s impossible to know for sure, but Trump was likely either poring over print media reports about dissatisfied members of Mueller’s team pushing back against Attorney General William Barr‘s memo summarizing their report, or rage-tweeting some cable news show talking about same. It’s really anybody’s guess.
