President Donald Trump on Monday once again hit out at special counsel Robert Mueller’s report on Russian election interference, calling it a “hoax” perpetuated by “Trump Haters.”
The Justice Department announced on Monday that a redacted version of the report will be released to the public on Thursday.
“The Mueller Report, which was written by 18 Angry Democrats who also happen to be Trump Haters (and Clinton Supporters), should have focused on the people who SPIED on my 2016 Campaign, and others who fabricated the whole Russia Hoax. That is, never forget, the crime,” Trump tweeted after the announcement.
“Since there was no Collusion, why was there an Investigation in the first place! Answer - Dirty Cops, Dems and Crooked Hillary!” He added.
Mueller, a longtime Republican and the former Director of the FBI, was appointed by Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein to lead the investigation into “the Russian government’s efforts to interfere in the 2016 presidential election,” according to his letter appointing Mueller. Trump has repeatedly railed against the investigation as a “witch hunt,” and a “hoax,” invented to discredit him.
