Trump rants on Twitter about Comey, Mueller investigation as new details expected

#

In an early morning Twitter rant, President Trump railed against special counsel Robert Mueller, James Comey, and even his own Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein as he pondered what will be in the special counsel’s anticipated final report.

The president’s tweets come as the special counsel prepares to make multiple court filings Friday expected to shed light into where the investigation is headed and as former FBI director James Comey, whom Trump refers to as “Leakin’ Lyin’ James Comey,” will testify behind closed doors Friday on Capitol Hill.

The president repeats some of his standard lines against the special counsel, as he accuses Mueller and his team of political bias against him. He ponders whether “Robert Mueller’s big time conflicts of interest be listed at the top of his Republicans only Report” along with the “many contributions made by the 17 Angry Democrats to the Campaign of Crooked Hillary.”

Mueller previously served as FBI director, appointed to the role by President George W. Bush, and continued in the role for part of the Obama administration.

President Trump also whether his current Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein will be mentioned in Mueller’s final report.

He also mentions “bye the way” he didn’t know Jerome Corsi, an associate of former Trump campaign adviser Roger Stone, but Trump but asks if the person in charge of his prosecution headed the “corrupt Clinton Foundation?”

    Huh.. Who knew he could string together a somewhat coherent thought for that long. Wrong or right; curious.

  • Eteamer

    Once again it's the pickles. trump told them over and over NO PICKLES.

  • P'Thizikil

    Trump puts together unrelated ideas like a paranoid in a mental ward. Now that FOX has called him lazy and stupid, his supporters are running low.

  • Mike Kennedy

    blah, blah, blah said the angry, lying orange man, again.

    Trump is going down.It's not a matter of if,it's a matter of when.

  • westbrazos

    Trump can rant all he wants,but his only believers are his braindead deplorables.If Trump told them a rooster could plow,they'd hook him up.

  • Life's a River

    Remember the movie "Ghost" with Patrick Swayze? I'd love to see the dark spirits haul Donnie down to where he belongs. He'd be screaming about Hillary and Obama and everybody else he blames for his failures.

  • Bill Paish

    Trump preaches at the church of Whataboutism

  • john

    "Waa" , .. "Waah" . . "Waa" . . . "Waah", endless sobbing

  • Colinalcarz

    What are the good things Trump has done during his time that virtually any other republican would not have done and not embarrassed the country with these idiotic twitter rants?

  • uberengineer

    Its almost like he doesn't realize that his guilt or innocence does NOT depend upon whether any of the people he mentions were guilty of crimes or not....

    If the evidence proves he is guilty, they he is guilty, regardless of who else might also be.

  • IT-Worker-Since-1990

    Trump becomes more unhitched as Mueller's indictments start to surround him and come closer. Trump is truly insane and needs to be impeached - the sooner, the better.

  • mollydtt

    When Trump finally ever realizes the significance of the GOP losing the house majority—he’s going to need some industrial strength Depends.
    He won’t, however, figure that out until mid January.

  • Bryant

    Trump probably off to the next "rally" for support - let's see, Mississippi, West Virginia, Minnesota, Idaho, Kentucky?

  • May

    Wednesday's silence was so welcoming.

  • Demosthenes

    After not being able to vent for the past few days due to Bush's funeral, Trump will blow out tweets like someone overdosed on a laxative after a two week bout of constipation.....

  • unusual

    Great - the Trump Report. I can hardly wait. I wonder who is going to write it for him. Or if he intends to tweet it out.

  • TexasVulcan

    Is there some reason that blocked users make all the replies rise to the top even when "Sort by Newest" is selected?

  • A C

    This man hasn't uttered a coherent statement since his first campaign, and his abilities have eroded even further. He sounds unhinged. His children should be worried about his well-being.

  • Christine Vanoff

    The thing Trump fails to grasp is that this investigation, as well as the outcome, does not require his approval.

  • Misty Mac 💯

    By, bye, buy — all interchangeable to the Stable Genius in the Oval. 😳

  • Mueller Time!

    The Mueller investigation is NOT about Hillary! What is his problem? The more Trump tweets the more I'm convinced he's guilty of something!

  • NewsJunkie12

    I love it when Trump goes on a rant in the wee hours of the morning, gets part way through a long tweet that ends in "..." then the finishing, follow up tweet doesn't come for hours later. You see in real time that he fell asleep in mid tweet then woke up hours later, rubbed his eyes, took a bite o' the cheeseburger resting on his belly in bed, then went right back to tweeting.

  • John_Cabal

    - His gut needs to tell him to chill

  • John_Cabal

    This weekend - all the major news networks will be reporting on what happens with the Mueller Investigation today.

    - FAUX will be selectively reporting on the closed door Comey Senate hearing.(otherwise they would have nothing to report)

  • Justbkind16

    Relax... I mean there is no collusion and you did nothing wrong. Right?

  • Youcan'thandlethetruth

    The twitter rantings of a desperate man, a cornered rat, cat over a barrel of water!

  • inonepeice

    I wonder if Trump will have interesting "facts" in his counter report like this one he told at a rally:
    "If you buy, you know, a box of cereal, if you do anything, you have a voter ID. … The only thing you don't is if you're a voter of the United States.".

  • TexWho

    After Trump "Make America Great Again" will have a real meaning.

  • pprty

    The President is trying his best to make sure American's don't have a peaceful, happy, stressless holiday season!
    Oh, what a scrooge!
