Donald Trump hits Mueller probe for trying to ‘damaging Republican Party’ in midterm elections

July 22, 2018 GMT

President Trump on Saturday accused special counsel Robert Mueller of prolonging the Russia probe in order to help Democrats in the midterm elections.

“The Rigged Witch Hunt, headed by the 13 Angry Democrats (and now 4 more have been added, one who worked directly for Obama W.H.), seems intent on damaging the Republican Party’s chances in the November Election. This Democrat excuse for losing the ’16 Election never ends!” tweeted Mr. Trump.

The addition of four new investigators to Mr. Mueller’s team signaled that he plans to pursue the investigation through 2018 and likely past the elections in November that will decide whether Republican retain control of the House and Senate.

Mr. Mueller is investigating Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election and allegations that Trump campaign officials colluded with Moscow.

“No Collusion, No Obstruction but that doesn’t matter because the 13 Angry Democrats, who are only after Republicans and totally protecting Democrats, want this Witch Hunt to drag out to the November Election. Republicans better get smart fast and expose what they are doing!” tweeted Mr. Trump.
