President Donald Trump offered a false apology Tuesday morning and promised to stop obsessing over the special counsel investigation -- after tweeting four times about the probe in one hour.
The president accused "Angry Democrats" of "meddling" in the upcoming midterm elections with a sprawling investigation of his 2016 presidential campaign's ties to Russia and other foreign governments, which has resulted in five guilty pleas and 17 indictments.
He tweeted twice more about the investigation before promising to get back to work.
"Sorry, I’ve got to start focusing my energy on North Korea Nuclear, bad Trade Deals, VA Choice, the Economy, rebuilding the Military, and so much more, and not on the Rigged Russia Witch Hunt that should be investigating Clinton/Russia/FBI/Justice/Obama/Comey/Lynch etc.," the president tweeted.
