Trump Calls Special Counsel Team ‘Thugs’ Who Are ‘Looking for Trouble’

President Trump continued to lash out this morning about a New York York Times story that revealed his White House counsel, Don McGahn, has been cooperating with the special counsel team investigating potential collusion between Russia and Trump’s campaign. 

In a series of increasingly “incendiary tweets, Trump suggested special counsel Robert Mueller is “looking for trouble” for spending more than 30 hours interviewing McGahn.

“Anybody needing that much time when they know there is no Russia Collusion is just someone looking for trouble,” Trump tweeted. “They are enjoying ruining people’s lives and REFUSE to look at the real corruption on the Democrat side – the lies, the firings, the deleted Emails and soooo much more!”

Trump called Mueller’s team “thugs” and a “National Disgrace.”

The Times reported Sunday that McGahan provided new “detailed accounts” that may help Mueller’s team determine whether Trump obstructed justice.

On Sunday, Trump called the authors of the Times piece “two fake reporters” who falsely claimed the White House counsel “TURNED on the President.”

“This is why the Fake News Media has become the Enemy of the People. So bad for America!”

The son of an influential Republican congressman excoriated his father after news broke about the FBI’s firing of Peter Stzrok, the veteran agent who had played a central role in the investigation of Russia.

Bobby Goodlatte tweeted that he was “deeply embarrassed” that “Strzok’s career was ruined by” Virginia Rep. Bob Goodlatte’s “political grandstanding.”

During a congressional hearing, the 13-term congressman took Strzok to task over  disparaging text messages that the FBI agent wrote about Trump during the election.

The younger Goodlatte on Sunday also began raising money for the Democrat who’s running in his father’s congressional district. Goodlatte is retiring.

Trump Threatens to ‘Take Action’ Against FBI, Heightens Campaign to Discredit Russia Probe

President Trump lashed out at the FBI, Justice Department and Attorney General Jeff Sessions in a series of tweets over the weekend.

As the showdown continues between the president and Robert Mueller over an interview, Trump is pumping up his rhetoric and threats against the groups that are overseeing the investigation of Russia’s meddling.

“Our A.G. is scared stiff and Missing in Action. It is all starting to be revealed – not pretty. IG Report soon? Witch Hunt!” Trump tweeted from his golf resort in Bedminster, New Jersey. 

Trump has been furious with Sessions since he recused himself from the Russia investigation, which continues to pick up steam.

In another tweet, Trump threatened “to get involved” with a public records request involving his former FBI deputy director Andrew McCabe.

“Why isn’t the FBI giving Andrew McCabe text messages to Judicial Watch or appropriate governmental authorities. FBI said they won’t give up even one (I may have to get involved, DO NOT DESTROY). What are they hiding?”

The tweets are part of a heightened campaign to sow doubts about the credibility of federal authorities involved in the investigation, which is looking into whether the president obstructed justice or his campaign colluded with Russia.

Former FBI Chief Comey Urges Voters to Support Dems, But Avoid ‘Socialist Left’

Former FBI Director James Comey urged Democrats on Sunday to avoid embracing the “socialist left,” just days after he encouraged voters to support Democrats in the fall elections.

Democrats, please, please don’t lose your minds and rush to the socialist left,” Comey tweeted Sunday afternoon. “This president and his Republican Party are counting on you to do exactly that. America’s great middle wants sensible, balanced, ethical leadership.”

On Tuesday, Comey tweeted that people “who believe in this country’s values must vote for Democrats this fall” after congressional Republicans failed to adequately denounce President Trump after praising Russian President Vladimir Putin at a time when the Kremlin is suspected of continuing to meddle in American elections.

Trump fired Comey in May, prompting Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein to appoint special counsel Robert Mueller, in part, to determine if the FBI director’s termination amounted to obstruction of justice.

Comey took another jab at Trump Monday evening.

Trump Loses Patience with Special Counsel Probe, Calls It ‘Russia Witch Hunt’

President Trump lashed out yet again at what he called the “Russia Witch Hunt” and suggested the obstruction charge is for a “made up, phony crime.”

“The Russia Witch Hunt is rapidly losing credibility,” Trump tweeted Monday morning. “House Intelligence Committee found No Collusion, Coordination or anything else with Russia. So now the Probe says OK, what else is there? How about Obstruction for a made up, phony crime.There is no O, it’s called Fighting Back.”

He also took aim at Democrats.

“The 13 Angry Democrats in charge of the Russian Witch Hunt are starting to find out that there is a Court System in place that actually protects people from injustice…and just wait ‘till the Courts get to see your unrevealed Conflicts of Interest!”

Trump has increased his rhetoric against the special counsel investigation, just a day after his new attorney, Rudy Giuliani, said the president may plead the fifth or just refuse to sit down with Robert Mueller, who is heading up the year-old probe.

If Trump refuses is subpoenaed and still refuses to sit down for an interview with Mueller, it likely would lead to a Supreme Court decision on whether a president can even be charged with a crime.

Trump Swings Back at Comey After ex-FBI Boss Slammed President on National TV

President Trump fired back at James Comey on Monday after the fired FBI director slammed Trump on national television, comparing him to a mob boss who is “morally unfit to be president.”

On Twitter, Trump’s favorite platform for hyperbole, the president suggested Comey and fired FBI Deputy Director  Andrew McCabe “committed many crimes,” a claim

“Comey drafted the Crooked Hillary exoneration long before he talked to her (lied in Congress to Senator G), then based his decisions on her poll numbers. Disgruntled, he, McCabe, and the others, committed many crimes!” Trump tweeted Monday morning, a day after Comey appeared on ABC’s 20/20 with a litany of accusations against the president.

On Friday morning, a day after details of Comey’s memoir, “A Higher Loyalty: Truth, Lies and Leadership,” were reported by the media, Trump called the former FBI boss “a weak and untruthful slime ball who was, as time has proven, a terrible Director of the FBI.”

“James Comey is a proven LEAKER & LIAR,” Trump tweeted. “Virtually everyone in Washington thought he should be fired for the terrible job he did-until he was, in fact, fired. He leaked CLASSIFIED information, for which he should be prosecuted. He lied to Congress under OATH. He is a weak and untruthful slime ball who was, as time has proven, a terrible Director of the FBI. His handling of the Crooked Hillary Clinton case, and the events surrounding it, will go down as one of the worst ‘botch jobs’ of history. It was my great honor to fire James Comey!”

Republicans have been preparing an attack on Comey’s credibility as he embarks on a book tour about a memoir that portrays Trump as a “forest fire” that threatens to undermine the nation’s values and norms.

Trump fired Comey in May, prompting Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein to appoint special counsel Robert Mueller, in part, to determine if the FBI director’s termination amounted to obstruction of justice.

Donald Trump fired back at James Comey on Friday after the former FBI director in his new memoir likened the president to a mob boss – dangerous, dishonest and a bully.

Trump, as expected, lashed out on Twitter, calling Comey “a weak and untruthful slime ball who was, as time has proven, a terrible Director of the FBI.”

James Comey is a proven LEAKER & LIAR,” Trump tweeted shortly after 8 a.m. “Virtually everyone in Washington thought he should be fired for the terrible job he did-until he was, in fact, fired. He leaked CLASSIFIED information, for which he should be prosecuted. He lied to Congress under OATH. He is a weak and untruthful slime ball who was, as time has proven, a terrible Director of the FBI. His handling of the Crooked Hillary Clinton case, and the events surrounding it, will go down as one of the worst ‘botch jobs’ of history. It was my great honor to fire James Comey!”

Republicans have been planning on launching an attack campaign on Comey’s credibility before details of the book were released.

Trump fired Comey in May, prompting Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein to appoint special counsel Robert Mueller.

In the book, Comey described Trump’s presidency as a “forest fire” that threatens to undermine the nation’s values and norms.

Trump Blasts Own AG Sessions over Failure to Probe Obama’s Role in Russian Meddling

President Trump once again blasted his own attorney general in a tweet Wednesday, blaming Jeff Sessions for failing to investigate the Obama administration’s role in Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election.

“Question: If all of the Russian meddling took place during the Obama Administration, right up to January 20th, why aren’t they the subject of the investigation? Why didn’t Obama do something about the meddling? Why aren’t Dem crimes under investigation? Ask Jeff Session!,” the president urged his 48 million followers, originally misspelling his AG’s name.

The tweet was just the latest attack on the social media platform blaming everyone but the Russians for election interference, which led to the indictment last week of 13 Russians accused of waging a disinformation campaign to help Trump get elected.

Trump also berated Sessions over four days on Twitter, calling his AG “beleaguered” and claiming Sessions was “very weak” on “Hillary Clinton’s crimes.”

Trump has attacked Sessions since he recused himself from the Russia investigation, allowing the deputy attorney general to appoint a special counsel to probe election interference and possible collusion with the Trump campaign.
