President Donald Trump, blasting the special counsel’s investigation as “illegal” and “conflicted,” said there should be no final report by Robert Mueller.
His comments came in three tweets posted Friday.
Trump wrote: “So, if there was knowingly & acknowledged to be “zero” crime when the Special Counsel was appointed, and if the appointment was made based on the Fake Dossier (paid for by Crooked Hillary) and now disgraced Andrew McCabe (he & all stated no crime), then the Special Counsel.......
“....should never have been appointed and there should be no Mueller Report. This was an illegal & conflicted investigation in search of a crime. Russian Collusion was nothing more than an excuse by the Democrats for losing an Election that they thought they were going to win.....
.....THIS SHOULD NEVER HAPPEN TO A PRESIDENT AGAIN!”
Trump’s latest attack on the special counsel’s probe came as transcripts were released from fired FBI special Agent Peter Strzok’s and former FBI counsel Lisa Page’s testimony before the House Judiciary Committee last year, Fox News reported.
Page, in her testimony, revealed FBI officials had little evidence at the start of the probe, according to the news network.
Meanwhile, the House voted 420-0 on Thursday to approve a nonbinding resolution calling for Mueller’s upcoming report to be released to Congress and the public.
