Washington, July 30: US President Donald Trump launched a verbal attack on Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into allegations of the Kremlin meddling in the 2016 presidential election, calling it a “rigged witch hunt” and “illegal”, as it was ignited by a “fraudulent” opposition research dossier. “There is no collusion! The Robert Mueller Rigged Witch Hunt, headed now by 17 (increased from 13, including an Obama White House lawyer) angry Democrats, was started by a fraudulent Dossier, paid for by Crooked Hillary and the Democratic National Committee. Therefore, the Witch Hunt is an illegal Scam!” Trump said on Sunday in one of a series of scathing Twitter messages.
The verbal assault was the latest Mueller bashing seen on Trump’s Twitter timeline, where it is a recurring theme. The tweets came just over a week after the Justice Department released documents related to secret surveillance warrants obtained on Carter Page, a former adviser to Trump’s campaign, the Hill magazine reported.
