Trump Opens Fire on ‘Discredited’ Mueller and His ‘Thugs’: ‘National Disgrace!’

President Donald Trump kicked off Monday morning with a Twitter attack aimed at Robert Mueller, referring to the special counsel as “Disgraced and discredited,” and his investigators as “Angry Democrat Thugs.”

“Disgraced and discredited Bob Mueller and his whole group of Angry Democrat Thugs spent over 30 hours with the White House Councel [sic], only with my approval, for purposes of transparency,” he wrote.

Trump continued: “Anybody needing that much time when they know there is no Russian Collusion is just someone….

Trump also curiously misspelled “counsel,” which he did on Sunday as well. He eventually deleted the tweet and posted again with the word corrected.

Standby for the next Trump tweet…
