President Donald Trump whined about the widening scope of investigations into his family's alleged wrongdoing exposed by former attorney Michael Cohen.
The president tweeted out an attack against Cohen early Friday, claiming his congressional testimony had been "totally discredited" by a Fox News report about a book manuscript he had been shopping, and then he lashed out at investigations of the Trump Organization, his foundation and his inauguration.
"Oh’ I see!" Trump tweeted. "Now that the 2 year Russian Collusion case has fallen apart, there was no Collusion except bye Crooked Hillary and the Democrats, they say, 'gee, I have an idea, let’s look at Trump’s finances and every deal he has ever done."
"Let’s follow discredited Michael Cohen," he added, "and the fraudulent and dishonest statements he made on Wednesday. No way, it’s time to stop this corrupt and illegally brought Witch Hunt. Time to start looking at the other side where real crimes were committed. Republicans have been abused long enough. Must end now!"
Chris Christie, the former New Jersey governor and former federal prosecutor, said Thursday night that the Southern District of New York was building a case against the president for when he leaves office.
Cohen testified Wednesday that U.S. Attorneys in the SDNY were investigating potential crimes that he was not authorized to publicly reveal to lawmakers.
