President Donald Trump continued trying to discredit Special Counsel Robert Mueller's probe Monday, tweeting, "Democrats can’t find a Smocking Gun tying the Trump campaign to Russia after James Comey’s testimony. No Smocking Gun...No Collusion.” @FoxNews That’s because there was NO COLLUSION. So now the Dems go to a simple private transaction, wrongly call it a campaign contribution,..." followed by "....which it was not (but even if it was, it is only a CIVIL CASE, like Obama’s - but it was done correctly by a lawyer and there would not even be a fine. Lawyer’s liability if he made a mistake, not me). Cohen just trying to get his sentence reduced. WITCH HUNT!"
As investigators circle closer to Trump, with more of his close associates becoming implicated, the president appears more rattled than ever.
On Monday CNN host Jake Tapper explained how the Mueller probe is closing in. "Prosecutors tie president Trump to federal crimes for the very first time," Tapper noted, before joking, "As a key lawmaker says there is a serious chance the president could end up in the "big house" if he loses the White House."
Tapper then pointed to the increasing desperation of the President's Mueller tweets.
'He called it a witch hunt!" Tapper said. "And you know he said it in all caps so he really means it."
