Donald Trump claims ‘presidential harassment’ leading up to Mueller report release

April 18, 2019 GMT

President Trump went on an early Thursday morning tear against Democrats and “dirty cops” prior to the release of a redacted version of special counsel Robert Mueller’s report into Russian election interference.

“The Greatest Political Hoax of all time! Crimes were committed by Crooked, Dirty Cops and DNC/The Democrats,” Mr. Trump tweeted, before later writing “PRESIDENTIAL HARASSMENT!”

Attorney General William P. Barr will be releasing Thursday a redacted version of Mr. Mueller’s report after he holds a press conference to answer questions about the special counsel’s findings.

Mr. Barr released a four-page summary of the report last month, saying Mr. Mueller did not recommend criminal conspiracy or obstruction charges against Mr. Trump or anyone on his team.
