Trump Goes After the ‘Robert Mueller Rigged Witch Hunt,’ Calls It an ‘Illegal Scam’

After yet another angry anti-media tirade, President Donald Trump went after the “witch hunt” again but with a few twists.

First off, he’s using Robert Mueller‘s full name now. Presumably POTUS heard about the report that the special counsel’s office is looking at his tweets as part of the obstruction probe.

Secondly, he is directly calling the investigation an “illegal scam!”

It’s unclear exactly what triggered this specific tweet, but it’s not exactly the first time Trump has popped off at the investigation. Back in January, The New York Times reported Trump wanted Mueller fired last year but was talked down from it.
