Trump: ‘Congratulations America’ We’re In 2nd Year Of ‘Disgusting, Illegal’ Witch Hunt




President Trump took to Twitter to offer sarcastic “congratulations” to America on the one-year anniversary of the appointment of special counsel Robert Mueller to investigate alleged collusion between the president’s campaign and Russia.

In an early morning tweet storm, Trump again referred to the investigation as a “witch hunt.”

“Congratulations America, we are now into the second year of the greatest Witch Hunt in American History…and there is still No Collusion and No Obstruction. The only Collusion was that done by Democrats who were unable to win an Election despite the spending of far more money!” Trump tweeted on the one-year anniversary of the appointment of special counsel Robert Mueller.





Former FBI director Robert Mueller was appointed exactly one-year ago as special counsel to take over the Justice Department’s federal probe into Russian election meddling and possible coordination between Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign and the Kremlin.

A total of 19 people and three Russian companies have either been indicted or pleaded guilty to criminal charges in the last 12 months, reports CBS News.

Among those charged are Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort, who is awaiting trial in Virginia and the District of Columbia, and Flynn, who pleaded guilty in December to lying to the FBI and has been cooperating with Mueller’s investigation. Other cooperators include deputy campaign chairman Rick Gates and former campaign foreign policy adviser George Papadopoulos.

Alex van der Zwaan, a Dutch lawyer who lied to the FBI is serving a 30-day prison sentence for lying to special counsel prosecutors and the FBI, and a California man who unwittingly sold bank accounts to Russians has also pleaded guilty.

The single largest criminal case involves 13 Russians and three Russian companies, accused of conspiring together to fund a hidden but effective social media campaign to exploit American divisions on race and other hot-button topics as well as favor Trump over Clinton.




Trump also tweeted: “Despite the disgusting, illegal and unwarranted Witch Hunt, we have had the most successful first 17 month Administration in U.S. history – by far! Sorry to the Fake News Media and “Haters,” but that’s the way it is!”
