El Presidente Trumpo cited “Fox and Friends” in order to attack Comey, and then went after McCabe and Muller in a twitter tirade that started last night.
Wow, watch Comey lie under oath to Senator G when asked “have you ever been an anonymous source...or known someone else to be an anonymous source...?” He said strongly “never, no.” He lied as shown clearly on @foxandfriends.— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) March 18, 2018
We posted more on this development here.
Spent very little time with Andrew McCabe, but he never took notes when he was with me. I don’t believe he made memos except to help his own agenda, probably at a later date. Same with lying James Comey. Can we call them Fake Memos?— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) March 18, 2018
As I understand it, these are inadmissible in court, but they can be used to help jog McCabe’s memory if ever he testifies.
Why does the Mueller team have 13 hardened Democrats, some big Crooked Hillary supporters, and Zero Republicans? Another Dem recently added...does anyone think this is fair? And yet, there is NO COLLUSION!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) March 18, 2018
Another common right-wing talking point that has been bandied about a lot on Hannity and friends, but does he have a point? Either way, it doesn’t appear that Mueller is being affected by these assaults. He’s moving ahead with his investigation.
Here’s his tweet from last night too:
The Mueller probe should never have been started in that there was no collusion and there was no crime. It was based on fraudulent activities and a Fake Dossier paid for by Crooked Hillary and the DNC, and improperly used in FISA COURT for surveillance of my campaign. WITCH HUNT!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) March 18, 2018
Some thing he’s gearing up to fire Mueller, but I’m not so sure – there’s a lot of congressmembers who would freak out at the prospect, and it could backfire and light a fire under democrats in the midterms. But far be it from Trump to do what’s in his best longterm interests…
