Dem Lawmaker Rips Trump: You Can’t Shut Down Mueller Probe, You’re Not A King Or Above The Rule Of Law





Democratic Rep. Don Beyer (Va.) on Monday ripped into President Trump’s tweet attacking special counsel Robert Mueller’s probe, saying that Trump wasn’t “a king” who could shut down the investigation into his “potential crimes.”

“Getting competent lawyers to represent you has been a challenge, but there must be someone who can explain to you what ‘obstruction of justice’ means,” Beyer tweeted at Trump.

“You don’t get to suspend the rule of law or shut down investigations into your potential crimes,” he continued. “You are not a king.”




Trump slammed the probe earlier Monday, calling the investigation a “witch hunt” and claiming that he wasn’t obstructing justice, only “fighting back.”
