Donald Trump calls on Robert Mueller to investigate Hillary Clinton emails

August 19, 2018

President Trump reiterated Sunday his call for special counsel Robert Mueller to investigate former Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton as part of his probe into Russian election interference.

“No Collusion and No Obstruction, except by Crooked Hillary and the Democrats,” said Mr. Trump. “All of the resignations and corruption, yet heavily conflicted Bob Mueller refuses to even look in that direction.”

He also named former CIA director John Brennan, former FBI director James Comey, former deputy FBI director Andrew McCabe, and newly fired FBI agent Peter Strzok.

“What about Brennan, Comey, Strzok lies to Congress, or Crooked’s Emails!”

His comments came as one of a string of early Sunday tweets about the previous day’s New York Times report on White House counsel Donald McGahn’s cooperation with the investigation, which Mr. Trump described as a “Fake Story.”

The Failing New York Times wrote a story that made it seem like the White House Councel had TURNED on the President, when in fact it is just the opposite - the two Fake reporters knew this. This is why the Fake News Media has become the Enemy of the People. So bad for America! Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) August 19, 2018

Some members of the media are very Angry at the Fake Story in the New York Times. They actually called to complain and apologize - a big step forward. From the day I announced, the Times has been Fake News, and with their disgusting new Board Member, it will only get worse! Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) August 19, 2018

Mr. Trump also compared the Mueller probe with former Sen. Joseph McCarthy’s 1950 allegations that communists had infiltrated the U.S. government, calling it “McCarthyism at its WORST!”

Study the late Joseph McCarthy, because we are now in period with Mueller and his gang that make Joseph McCarthy look like a baby! Rigged Witch Hunt! Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) August 19, 2018
