Attack of the Twit

Humpty Trumpty is attempting to push back against the Russian Connection investigation.  The twitter-in-chief uses social media for his modus operandi for deriding Special Counsel Mueller and his office as overtly partisan, once again referring to his investigation as a "political witch hunt" by "hardened Democrats" and "crooked Hillary supporters".  His personal lawyer, John Dowd, urged the Justice Department to end an investigation "manufactured by McCabe's boss James Comey".  The unprecedented media offensive comes on the heels of the dismissal of the second in command at the FBI and a Mueller witness, one day before he was eligible to retire with twenty years service. Hair Further campaigned for months against Andrew McCabe for his role in allowing FBI agents to talk to the press about the on-going investigation.Trump was fully aware of McCabe's eligibility and even counted the days to his eligibility in a twit. When the Attorney General finally approved the firing recommended by the agency's inspectator general, Der Leader wrote it was a "a great day for democracy". If that is not partisan vindictiveness, US Person is confused as well as obscure.

Trump's pushback against the FBI and the Special Counsel's Office is receiving its flack from congressional Republicans.Trump was warned today by Senator Lindsey Graham (R) that attempting to fire Mueller, a Republican, "would be the beginning of the end of his presidency."mA spokesperson for the Speaker of the House said Speaker Paul Ryan has always believed that Mueller and his team should be allowed to do their job.
