Trump unleashes bonkers tweets attacking Mueller for prosecuting Flynn: ‘They want to scare everybody’

President Donald Trump on Thursday issued a strange tweet in which he insisted that special counsel Robert Mueller only gave former national security adviser Michael Flynn a “great deal” because he felt so bad about how poorly Flynn had been treated.

“They gave General Flynn a great deal because they were embarrassed by the way he was treated — the FBI said he didn’t lie and they overrode the FBI,” the president wrote. “They want to scare everybody into making up stories that are not true by catching them in the smallest of misstatements.

Trump then followed this tweet up by simply writing, “WITCH HUNT!”

Despite Trump’s insistence that Flynn didn’t lie to the FBI, Flynn pleaded guilty to doing just that nearly one year ago. Additionally, Trump himself in a past tweet said that he “had to fire General Flynn because he lied to the Vice President and the FBI.”

Mueller specified that Flynn had met with investigators on 19 separate occasions and had delivered, among other things, information on “links or coordination between the Russian government and individuals associated with the Trump campaign.”

On Monday, Politico mapped out a detailed, hypothetical scenario in which Trump wins re-election — similar to their 2016 scenario of what would happen if Trump was elected in the first place — and some of the things that people could expect in the coming years. The result would be, as former Nixon White House Counsel John Dean put it, "an era of authoritarianism."

GOP lawmakers in revolt against Trump and are avoiding using White House ‘toxic talking points’: WSJ

Published

Adding to Donald Trump's impeachment worries are reports that Republicans are putting distance between themselves and the embattled president.

According to the Wall Street Journal, support for the president among GOP lawmakers is waning in light of his phone call with the president of Ukraine -- which set in motion the House beginning an impeachment inquiry -- and then his decision to hold next year's G7 conference at one of his golf resorts -- a decision he later abandoned.

According to the Journal, "Mr. Trump’s support within his party will face fresh tests this week, as key witnesses from the State Department and Pentagon are expected to testify in closed hearings before a trio of House committees on the president’s dealings with Ukraine."
