Trump: Mueller’s Team of Angry Democrats “Refuse to Look at the Real Corruption”

President Donald Trump ripped Special Counsel Robert Mueller and his team of “Angry Democrat Thugs,” calling them “a National Disgrace” for refusing “to look at the real corruption on the Democrat side.”

The New York Times over the weekend published a story Don McGahn willingly spoke to the special counsel over whether President Trump obstructed justice – for 30 hours over the course of at least three separate occasions. The article insinuated that Mr. McGahn spoke to Mr. Mueller against the president’s wishes and interests.

It didn’t hold up to scrutiny.

Multiple sources familiar with the investigation confirmed to multiple outlets that Mr. McGahn spoke to Mr. Mueller at length on three occasions. However, they said that the report recycled already known information and that President Trump instructed Mr. McGahn to cooperate with the special counsel.

“Disgraced and discredited Bob Mueller and his whole group of Angry Democrat Thugs spent over 30 hours with the White House Councel, only with my approval, for purposes of transparency,” he tweeted. “Anybody needing that much time when they know there is no Russian Collusion is just someone….

…looking for trouble. They are enjoying ruining people’s lives and REFUSE to look at the real corruption on the Democrat side – the lies, the firings, the deleted Emails and soooo much more! Mueller’s Angry Dems are looking to impact the election. They are a National Disgrace!”

Last week, the jury in the federal trial against Paul Manafort, who was hired as President Trump’s campaign manager for a potential delegate fight at the 2016 Republican National Convention (RNC), ended the first day of deliberations with a series of questions.

Rick Gates, Mr. Manafort’s former business associate and protégé, was Mr. Mueller’s star witness at the trial. Only days before the indictments, it was revealed the campaign for Hillary Clinton and the Democratic National Committee (DNC) paid for the still-unproven and largely debunked dossier composed by former British intelligent agent Christopher Steele.

The Clinton campaign and DNC hired the shadowy smear firm Fusion GPS to gather opposition research, who in turn hired Mr. Steele. The ousted MI6 spy fed the Kremlin-sourced dossier to former Associate Deputy Attorney General Bruce Ohr, who was twice demoted for hiding that his wife worked for Fusion GPS.

Mr. Ohr and other Obama Administration officials at the Justice Department (DOJ) — such as former Deputy Attorney General Sally Yates — continued to communicate with Fusion GPS via Mr. Steele months after the FBI deemed him not to be a credible source.

The FBI concluded on November 1, 2016, that he broke the agreement by leaking parts of the dossier to the media. They characterized him as “not suitable for use” as a confidential source, internal memos show.

Meanwhile, Ms. Yates was fired for refusing to enforce President Trump’s travel ban. In the end, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled in favor of the Trump Administration, calling the order “squarely within the scope of Presidential authority.”

“Where’s the Collusion?” President Trump tweeted. “They made up a phony crime called Collusion, and when there was no Collusion they say there was Obstruction (of a phony crime that never existed). If you FIGHT BACK or say anything bad about the Rigged Witch Hunt, they scream Obstruction!”

Mr. Manafort, 69, is accused of hiding income from the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) earned lobbying the Clinton Department and Capitol Hill Democrats through The Podesta Group on behalf of the then-pro Russian government in Ukraine.

Neither he nor The Podesta Group, which was founded by former Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta and his brother, were registered under the Foreign Agents Registration Act (FARA). Despite Mr. Podesta’s own employees conceding to special counsel investigators he knew the nature of the lobby, only one was charged with a federal crime.

Recent revelations have put a giant question mark on the genesis of the special counsel investigation into Russia meddling and collusion.

The DOJ and FBI relied upon the unverified dossier to secure a FISA warrant to spy against Carter Page, and by extension, the Trump campaign. While it was funded by the DNC and Clinton campaign, Obama Administration officials never told the FISA court that it was political opposition research.
