President Donald Trump insisted he would not watch Robert Mueller's testimony -- but his Twitter account suggests otherwise.
The former special counsel testified about his findings in a lengthy investigation of Trump campaign ties to Russia, and the president tweeted out attacks and denials Wednesday morning ahead of the hearings.
Trump's public schedule for the day was empty until he was set to fly to Wheeling, West Virginia, for a campaign rally, and he tweeted out a quote from Fox News anchor Chris Wallace about the hearings during a brief break in Mueller's testimony.
“This has been a disaster for the Democrats and a disaster for the reputation of Robert Mueller.” Chris Wallace @FoxNews— Donald J. Trump (@Donald J. Trump)1563977476.0
Other social media users noticed the timing.
It appears POTUS is indeed watching the hearings. https://t.co/LrPyuVN0RA— Brian J. Karem (@Brian J. Karem)1563978496.0
