Earlier this morning, we reported that Democrats are stepping up their efforts to impeach President Donald Trump. Now, he is firing back at them in a big way.
Daily Mail reported that Trump took to Twitter on Thursday morning to slam the Justice Department’s decision to appoint a special counsel to investigate Russian meddling in the 2016 campaign.
“With all the illegal acts that took place in the Clinton campaign & Obama Administration, there was never a special councel appointed!” Trump wrote, later adding, “This is the single greatest witch hunt of a politician in American history!”
Trump also blasted the decision, which Democrats are already using in their quest for impeachment, in a statement released on Wednesday night.
“As I have stated many times, a thorough investigation will confirm what we already know – there was no collusion between my campaign and any foreign entity,” Trump said.
This came after the Justice Department announced that former FBI Director Robert Mueller, who held the position for a decade and was reappointed by Barack Obama, would serve as special counsel, and would have “all appropriate resources” to carry out the probe.
