Trump Rages Against Mueller Hours Before His Testimony, Declares He’s ‘A Very Innocent President’

President Trump on Wednesday morning unleashed a barrage of angry tweets lashing out at Robert Mueller hours before the former special counsel was set to appear on Capitol Hill to testify about his 448-page report on Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election, the actions of the Trump campaign, and possible obstruction of justice by the president.

“So Democrats and others can illegally fabricate a crime, try pinning it on a very innocent President, and when he fights back against this illegal and treasonous attack on our Country, they call It Obstruction?” Trump tweeted.

“Wrong! Why didn’t Robert Mueller investigate the investigators?” he added.

“It was NEVER agreed that Robert Mueller could use one of his many Democrat Never Trumper lawyers to sit next to him and help him with his answers,” the president tweeted about the late confirmation that one of Mueller’s top deputies will accompany him as an adviser during his testimony. The Hill notes that Trump’s approval is not needed for the committee’s hearing format.

“This was specifically NOT agreed to, and I would NEVER have agreed to it. The Greatest Witch Hunt in U.S. history, by far!” he added.

The Hill adds:

The president reasserted his claim that Mueller interviewed to be FBI director before being appointed special counsel, suggesting it would be perjury for him to say otherwise. Trump has used the issue to suggest Mueller was conflicted in his investigation.

However, Mueller’s report addressed the claim. Former White House chief strategist Stephen Bannon told federal investigators that Mueller did not go to the White House seeking to become FBI director for a second time and was instead invited to offer “a perspective on the institution” to the president.

Trump also questioned why the former special counsel did not investigate himself, as well as 2016 Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton and several Justice Department officials.
