President Donald Trump blasted the FBI, Robert Mueller, and the Department of Justice in a series of Tuesday tweets following scathing Monday comments.

The FBI raided Cohen’s office Monday morning and seized multiple records, including private communications between himself and Trump. Cohen’s lawyer said in a statement that the raid was authorized after Mueller referred the matter to the U.S. attorney of the southern district of New York. Reports indicate investigators are reviewing potential bank fraud by Cohen.

Trump reacted angrily Monday evening saying “It’s a disgraceful situation,” adding “I have this witch hunt constantly going on… It’s an attack on on our country…what we all stand for.” He continued on Mueller’s team, saying they are “the most conflicted group of people I have ever seen,” adding “that is a whole new level of unfairness.”
