Even though special counsel Robert Mueller on Friday leveled a stunning indictment against 12 Russian officials for their alleged roles in hacking and distributing emails from Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign, President Donald Trump still believes the entire investigation is a “rigged witch hunt.”
In fact, Trump on Monday once again called the Mueller probe a “witch hunt” and said it was to blame for poor relations between the United States and Russia.
“Our relationship with Russia has NEVER been worse thanks to many years of U.S. foolishness and stupidity and now, the Rigged Witch Hunt!” the president wrote.

Trump’s views on the Mueller probe are so in line with Kremlin talking points that Russia’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs on Monday simply had a two-word response to Trump’s tweet that read, “We agree.”
