President Donald Trump bestowed a nickname on Special Counsel Robert Mueller in a series of tweets railing against the probe.

Trump’s angry tirade aimed at the special counsel comes after a New York Times story detailing hours of interviews between his White House counsel, Don McGahn, and Mueller’s team. The interviews focus on the president’s frame of mind when critics alleged he obstructed justice, including asking former FBI director James Comey to drop an investigation into Mike Flynn.

Trump maintains that he granted full permission to McGahn to testify before the special counsel.
