Trump: ‘Mueller Probe Should Never Have Been Started’ – ‘WITCH HUNT!’

President Donald Trump rounded out St. Patrick’s Day 2018 with another attack on special counsel Robert Mueller.

POTUS tweeted Saturday night that “the Mueller probe should never have been started in that there was no collusion and there was no crime.”

“It was based on fraudulent activities and a Fake Dossier paid for by Crooked Hillary and the DNC, and improperly used in FISA COURT for surveillance of my campaign,” he continued. “WITCH HUNT!”

Earlier on Saturday, Trump reasserted findings from Republican members of the House Intelligence Committee, stating that there was no collusion between Trump’s presidential campaign and the Russian government during the 2016 election.

Trump has repeatedly criticized the FBI and Justice Department following the release of the 150-page House Intel memo.

He ordered attorney general Jeff Sessions fire FBI deputy director Andrew McCabe Friday, just two days before he was set to retire.

Even Democrats seem to think the Russia probe is coming to a close over lack of evidence of collusion.

Ranking House Intel member Adam Schiff said he could no longer “rely on Bob Mueller” himself from Mueller Thursday.
