President Donald Trump delivered an unhinged rant about the Muller report on the South Lawn of the White House Wednesday, accusing investigators of an “attempted coup.”
“After $35 million with 13, increased to 18, angry Democrats, people that truly hated Donald Trump, truly hated Trump, they found no collusion whatsoever with Russia,” said the president, speaking in the third person. “After wasting all of this money and all of this time with people that were haters, people that worked on the Hillary Clinton Foundation, people that were absolutely haters of Trump, they found no collusion. ”
“What has been found during this period of time are the illegal acts of getting this whole phony investigation started, and hopefully that is where people are going now,” Trump insisted. “It was an illegal investigation. It was an illegal investigation. It was started illegally. Everything about it was crooked. Every single thing about it. There were dirty cops. These were bad people.”
“This was an attempted coup, this was an attempted take down of a president,” Trump said, attacking the leadership of the FBI. “And we beat them. We beat them. So, the Mueller report when they talk about obstruction, we fight back. And you know why we fight back? Because I knew how illegal this whole thing was.”
“What I’m most interested in is getting started hopefully the attorney general, he mentioned it yesterday, he is doing a great job getting started on going back to the origins of exactly where this all started because this was an illegal witch-hunt,” the president continued ominously.
“What they did was treason, what they did was terrible, what they did was against our constitution and everything we stand for,” he went on. “So, hopefully, that will happen. There is a hunger for that to happen in this country like I have never seen before.”

Legal analyst suggests ‘truth commission’ to bring the US back from Trumpism
“When a plane falls out of the sky, we don’t just shrug our shoulders and say, 'gravity has consequences'” wrote legal analyst Elie Mystal in his column for "The Nation" Tuesday.
After five years of dealing with President Donald Trump, Mystal thinks that the way to bring the United States back to normal is with a kind of "truth and reconciliation commission."
He recalled in 2009 when former President Barack Obama came into office he was asked if he would appoint a special prosecutor to investigate George W. Bush's administration for the torture scandal and illegal detention.
Donald Trump Jr.: Biden already had a chance to ‘fix’ racism because Obama is Black
Donald Trump Jr. on Tuesday argued that former Vice President Joe Biden should have solved racial tensions when there was an African-American president.
At a campaign event in Pennsylvania, the president's son responded after a member of the audience called Biden a "racist."
"Well, he is," Trump agreed. "He was best friends with every segregationist ever to walk the halls of Congress."
"But he's going to fix those issues now, right?" he added sarcastically. "Now he's going to fix racial tensions in America. Why did you wait 47 years, Joe? You know, if you really cared, if you thought it was something you were going to campaign on, maybe you would have utilized, I don't know, your 38 years in the United States Senate."
