President Donald Trump took aim at Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s probe as unconstitutional in a Monday morning tweet.

Trump previously tweeted about the special counsel probe by noting that he had absolute authority to pardon himself for any crimes but that he would never do so because he believes himself not to be guilty.

Trump appeared to allude that he has not taken steps to fire the special counsel despite his belief that the investigation has overstepped its bounds and is not legitimate. The president referenced the “13 very Angry and Conflicted Democrats” in his tweet citing the lawyers assigned to the Mueller investigation with past affiliation with the Democratic Party.
